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).
~Love Fire PTU scrapkit by JRB Scraps which you can get from PSP Tubes Emporium HERE.
~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of The Hunter, this tube will be available for purchase 1-25-12. You must have a license to use this art. You can also purchase this art from PTE HERE.
~Template of choice. I used the Cupcake template which will be available in the new Commercial Use section at PTE 1-25-12. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 84-11 which you can get HERE.
~Font of choice. I used riddle.
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.
~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).
This is the paper I used: Paper 1 Paper 3 Paper 8 Paper 9
~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 element 14 (frame), I tilted the frame slightly using the Rotate tool in my tool box. Add drop shadow.
~Open paper 6 and place it directly under the frame. Remove excess paper using an eraser or cutting tool from your tool box.
5. Open and place the following elements: element 1 element 2 element 3 element 7 element 8 element 13 element 17 element 19 element 20 element 25
~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~ 6. Open Paper 1. 7. Open mask. 8. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tutorial on using masks).
9. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).
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
ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!
