CU Licenses

Friday, August 19, 2011
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 artwork of PinupToons , you must have a license to use this art which you can now get HERE. ~Escape PTU scrapkit by Sweet Cravings Scraps which you can get HERE ~Mask of choice. I used Vix mask GBS0905 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used AlicoScriptSSK Bold. 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 5 (round frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 6 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open Frame 1 (rectangular frame), add drop shadow. 5. Open Paper 10 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 6. Open tubes. I used both a full body tube and a close-up. ~Take the close up layer and move it (in your layer box) under Frame 1, but above the paper. Change the Mode on the tube to Screen (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Screen from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using a cutting tool or eraser. ~Add drop shadow to the full body tube. 7. Open and place the following elements: Flare 3 Grass Hill Floral Swing Tree Log Flower 1 Flower 7 Frog Pine Cones Butterfly 1 Butterfly 2 Bird in Nest Bow 6 ~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 (except Flare 3)~ 8. Open Paper 20 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 :)
