CU Licenses

This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Tubes of choice. I used the awesome artwork of Ismael Rac, you must have a license to use his art which you can get HERE. ~Wild Thing PTU scrapkit by Artmama which you get from Exquisite Scraps HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used Artmama mask 12 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used World at War. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to alpha). 2. Open embellie 35 (round frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 10 center it behind round portion of the frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open embellie 25 (filmstrip frame), add drop shadow. 5. Open Papers 1, 2 & 3 place them behind the filmstrip frame. Remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 6. Open tubes. I used 4 tubes total. I lowered the opacity on the 3 tubes I placed behind the filmstrip frame to 45 (at the top of the layer box you will see a bar you can slide to change the opacity of the selected layer). Add drop shadow to tube in center of the round frame. 7. Open and place the following elements: embellie 42 embellie 34 embellie 8 embellie 56 embellie 59 embellie 1 embellie 57 embellie 2 embellie 3 embellie 47 embellie 13 embellie 12 embellie 10 embellie 38 embellie 11 embellie 58 ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 8. Open Paper 4. 9. Open mask. 10. Add mask to paper. 11. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 12. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 13. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 14. Add copyright info and name. 15. Save as .png You are finished :)
