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).
~Rieka Rafita's portion of the FTU Back to School blog train, which you can get HERE.
~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Tim Lowery, you must have a license to use this art. You can purchase this art from PTE HERE.
~Template of choice. I used the Flirty&Dirty template which you can get from Crazy Cakes Scraps HERE.
~Font of choice. I used 1 Snappy DNA.
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, remove and 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 1
Paper 3
Paper 7
Paper 8
~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 tube, add drop shadow.
4. Open and place the following elements.
Glitter1 Glitter 2 Journal 1 Journal 2 Color pencil Beads Tag Flower 1 Flower 2 Flower 3 Flower 4 Scissor 1 Butterfly 1 Butterfly 3 Button 2 Wordart 1
~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 (except Glitter 1, Glitter 2 & Wordart 1)~
5. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).
6. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image).
7. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image).
8. Add copyright info and name
9. Save as .png
ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
