PTU tut - Spring Fresh

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).

~Spring Fresh PTU scrapkit by Tasha's Playground which you can find HERE.

~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of KiwiFireStorm, you must have a license to use this art which you can get from HERE.

~Template of choice. I used HPD template 163 which you can get HERE.

 ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 363 which you can find HERE.

~Font of choice. I used Will&Grace.

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 template in PSD format, remove and move layers of template around until they are the way you like them.

~Add paper from scrapkit to individual layers of the template (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select paper layer in layer box > Delete).

These are the papers I used:

Paper 2
Paper 3
Paper 4
Paper 6
Paper 7
Paper 9

~I colorized some of the template layers to better match the scrapkit (Colors > Colorize > play with the setting until you get the desired color).

~Add drop shadow to template layers (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow).

3. Open tube, add drop shadow.

4. Open and place the following elements:

Leaf
Leaves 1
Leaves 2
Sparkles 1
Button 1
Button 2
Mirror
Flower 1
Flower 2
Flower 4
Flower 5
Flower 6
Grass 2
Birdhouse
Butterfly
Watercan
Chick 2
Chick 3
Twine
Egg 2
Bunny

~Some of the elements may need to be sized down. Using your scale tool in your tool box adjust the pixel size until element is the correct size~

~Add drop shadow to all elements (except Sparkles 1 & Grass 2)~

 5. Open Paper 8

6. Open mask

7. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks).

8. Merge Layers (Image > Merge Visible Layers).

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

ALL DONE!!!!!!!!!!

This month we were "Moved by Music", so each designer picked a genre of music and created something inspired by it. 

I was inspired by the 80's:
