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). ~Diva Collab PTU scrapkit by AC Divas which you can purchase from Exquisite Scraps HERE. ~Tubes of choice. I used the art of Elias Chatzoudis, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Template of choice. I used CBN template 65 which you can get at Creative by Nature HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used mask 12 which you can get Babes Designz HERE. ~Font of choice. I used SeamStress. 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 template in PSD format, move layers of template around until they are the way you like them. ~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete). These are the papers I used: Paper 4 Paper 8 Paper 10 Paper 13 ~I added noise to some of the template layers to make them look glittery (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise). ~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color). ~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open tubes, I used a full body and a close-up. I changed the mode on the close-up to Hard Light (at the top of the layer box you will see a box marked Mode. Click on the arrow and pick Hard Light from the drop down menu. See the image below). Add drop shadow. 4. Open and place the following elements: embellie 6 embellie 57 embellie 33 embellie 10 embellie 58 embellie 41 embellie 35 embellie 37 embellie 43 embellie 19 embellie 52 embellie 21 embellie 24 ~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 5. Open Paper 6 6. Open mask 7. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks) 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 9. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 10. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 11. Add copyright info and name 12. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
