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). ~Dance of Love PTU scrapkit by JRB Scraps which you can get from PTE HERE. ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Lix, you must have a license to use this art which you can also get from PTE HERE. ~Template of choice. I used Leah's template 67 which you can get on our blog HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 302 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Japan Medium. 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, 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 4 Paper 8 Paper 9 ~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 tubes, I used both a full body and a close-up. I changed the mode on the close-up 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). The close-up has been added to the template in the same way you add paper (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete). Add drop shadow to the full body tube. 4. Open and place the following elements: element 1 element 2 element 3 element 5 element 10 element 11 element 15 element 16 element 17 element 18 element 19 element 20 element 21 ~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~ 5. Open Paper 6. 6. Open mask. 7. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tutorial on using masks). 8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers). 9. Crop Image (Image > Autocrop Image). 10. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 11. Add copyright info and name. 12. Save as .png ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
