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 Angela Newman , you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PSP Tubes Emporium HERE. ~Vintage Styling PTU scrapkit by A Taggers Scrap which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used ALS 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 Frame 3 (round frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 9 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open Frame 13 (rectangular frame), add drop shadow. 5. Open Paper 27 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 6. Open tubes. I used both a full body tube and a close-up. ~Take the close up layer and move it (in your layer box) under Frame 13, but above the paper. Change the Mode on the tube to Grain Merge (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Grain Merge from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using a cutting tool or eraser. ~Add drop shadow to the full body tube. 7. Open and place the following elements: Torn paper 4 Photo corner Lace bit Flower 1 Flower 2 Clock Stamp Key Feather Metal box Diamond 3 Diamond 4 Vase Phone Brooch 2 Teapot Butterfly 1 Butterfly 2 ~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~ 8. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 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 You are finished :)
