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 Cedric Poulat, you must have a license to use this art which you can get @ PSP Tubes Emporium HERE. ~Back to School FTU scrapkit by Sweet Cravings Scraps which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used mask 17 which you can get from HorsePlay's Pasture HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Pea Faith Dots. 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 2, add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). I tilted the frame slightly using the rotate tool in the tool box. 3. Open Paper 12 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open tubes. I used both a full body and a close-up. ~For the full body tube you will need to duplicate the 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 of full body tube. ~For the close-up tube layer, place it under the frame (but above the paper) in your layer box. Change the mode to Screen (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Screen from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using cutting tool or eraser from your tool box. 5. Open and place the following elements: Chalkboard Word art 3 Flower 1 Flower 2 Flower 3 Flower 4 Notebook 3 Glue School books Bow 6 Scissors 4 Pencil 4 Paintbrush 3 ~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 Word art 3)~ 6. Open Paper 20. 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 :)
