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 Alicia Mujica you must have a license to use this art which you can get @ PTE HERE. ~My Frosted Garden PTU scrapkit by Alicia Mujica which you can also get @ PTE HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 99-8 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Picayune Intelligence. 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 Marco (frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 1a center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tube, you will need to duplicate the 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 layer 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: Luna Arbol Luces Cartel Frosted 2 Macetero Frosted Flor Frosted Flor 2 Frosted Berenjera Frosted Hoja Frosted Bolade Frosted Caracol Frosted Seta Frosted Estrella Estrella 2 Estrella 3 Charco * * I added Noise to this element to give a sparkle/glitter effect (Filters > Noise > RGB Noise) ~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 4a. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks). 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 :)
