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 Elias Chatzoudis, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from PSP Tubes Emporium HERE. ~Splash PTU scrapkit by Tasha's Playground which you can find HERE. ~Mask of choise. I used WSL mask 363 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used 0 Whoa DNA. 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 1, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 5 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. 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 1, but above the paper. Change the Mode on the tube to Hardlight (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Hardlight from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using a cutting tool or eraser. ~Add drop shadow to the full body tube. 5. Open Porthole element and place it (in your layer box) above the close up tube but under the full body layer. Do not added drop shadow. 6. Open and place the following elements: Wave Starfish Starfish 2 Fish 1 Fish 3 Fish 4 Jellyfish Seaweed Seaweed 2 Marble Sand Bottle Clamshell ~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 (except Sand)~ 7. Open Paper 13. 8. Open mask. 9. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks). 10. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 11. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 12. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 13. Add copyright info and name. 14. Save as .png You are finished :)
