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). ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Shawn McManus, you must have a license to use this art which you can get HERE. ~Autumn Retreat PTU scrapkit which you get from annaica's place HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 363 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Mural Script. 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 Element 63 (frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 10 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tube. ~You will need to duplicate this tube so that you have 2 (at the bottom of your layer box click on the blue box. This will give you 2 tube layers). ~Select the top tube layer in your tool box. Add Gaussion Blur (Filters > Blur > Gaussion Blur, use default settings) ~On that same tube layer change the mode to Overlay (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Overlay from the drop down menu). ~Add drop shadow to bottom tube layer 5. Open and place the following elements: Element 1 Element 5 Element 9 Element 10 Element 14 Element 22 Element 30 Element 31 Element 32 Element 40 Element 43 Element 44 Element 46 Element 50 Element 51 Element 53 Element 54 ~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~ 6. Open Paper 15. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper
9. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 10. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 11. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 12. Add copyright info and name. 13. Save as .png You are finished :)
