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 art of Robert Alvarado. You must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Punkatude PTU scrapkit which you can get from Addictive Pleasures HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 363 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Trashco. 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 Frame 4, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 6 center it behind the frame ,remove excess paper with a cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. 4. Open Frame 3, add drop shadow. 5. Open Paper 4 center it behind star frame, remove excess paper with a cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. 6. Open tubes, I used 2 close-ups and a full body tube. Place the close-ups behind Frame 4 & change the mode on the close-ups 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 to the full body tube. 7. Open and place the following elements: Netting Beads Feathers Keychain 2 CD Hearts Blade SequinStar Skull Skull 2 Leaf ~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~ 8. Open Paper 11. 9. Open mask. 10. Add mask to paper 11. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 12. Autocrop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 13. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 14. Add copyright info and name. 15.
