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 Roman Zaric, you must have a license to use this art which you can get @ PSP Tubes Emporium HERE. ~Tea Time FTU scrapkit by PolkaDot Scraps which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used mask 9 which you can get from HorsePlay's Pasture HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Trees of Happiness. 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, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 14 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tubes, I used both full body and close-up tubes. ~Open the close-up tube, duplicate the tube layer. Flip one of the tubes using the Flip tool in your tool box. Place both layers under the frame but above the paper. Merge the 2 tube layers together (right click top tube layer > Merge Down). 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). Remove excess tube layer using cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. ~Add drop shadow to full body tube. 5. Open and place the following elements: Element 29 Element 30 Element 43 Element 44 Element 46 Element 47 Element 48 Element 49 Element 50 Element 55 ~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~ 6. Open Paper 1. 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 :)
