PTU tut - Wish You Were Here

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).

~Kit of choice. I used a new PTU kit called Wish You Were Here by Jackie's Jewels, which you can find HERE.

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

~Template of choice. I used MPM template 720 which you can get HERE.

~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask 302 which you can get HERE.

~Font of choice. I used Alex Brush.

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, 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 5

Paper 8
Paper 13

~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 tubes, I used both a full body and a close-up. I changed the mode on the close-up 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). The close-up has been added to the template in the same way you add paper (Right click on template layer in layer box > Alpha to Selection > CTRL I > Select tube layer in layer box > Delete). Add drop shadow to full body tube.

4. Open and place the following elements:

Basket of Letters
Violin
Flower Cluster
Pillows
Phone
Fan
Angel Statue
Clock
Box
Flower 1
Flower 2
Bottle
Ink & Quill
Candle
Glasses

~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~

 5. Open Paper 10

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!!!!!!!!!!

Freya Langford-Sidebottom CT tags & extras

I had a chance to play with a brand new tube from Freya Langford-Sidebottom called Bianca Cheer.
This tube is so fantastic for all of you football fans out there...and just in time for the BIG GAME too!!!! She comes in Seahawks and Patriots layers as well as greyscaled layers that you can color to match your favorite team or football kit.
Here's a tag I made using my kit called Football Fan. As you can see I recolored her to match the kit...

Here are some fun, animated extras for all of you. DO NOT alter these in any way.
