CU Licenses

Thursday, February 23, 2012
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 Abril Andrade Griffith, this tube comes in a pack of 2 tubes. You must have a license to use this art which you can get from PTE HERE. ~La Catrina FTU scrapkit by Amigas Del Scrap which you can get HERE. *This kit is full sized* ~Mask of choice. I used mask 9 which you can get from HorsePlay's Pasture HERE. ~Font of choice. I used HaloHandletter 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 Element 35 (frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 2 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tube. ~You will need to duplicate this 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 tool box. Add Gaussian Blur (Filters > Blur > Gaussian 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: 4 10 12 29 30 39 43 44 45 46 47 49 53 64 74* 87 ~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~ *Element 74 has been colorized to match the tag. ~Go to Colors > Colorize > adjust until you have desired color~ 6. Open Paper 35. 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 :)
