By The Light Tutorial-Revised

I have had to amend this tutorial because the link to the original

scrap kit doesn't work

You will need:

A tube - I used one from Caron Vinson.
You must be a registered member of CILM
to buy the tube - but any tube will do for this
I made a 'clucter' from a scrap kit called "Surrender"
from FantasyMoments Scraps
Mask - UF2 from UrbanFairyTalesBlog
Scroll almost to bottom of page to find the download link to
her Masks - 1 - 25.
Font - I used Asrafel - in my supplies


The 2nd link is for the new cluster
Filters Unlimited 2.0

Open up the cluster from my supplies. Make cluster layer active - resize 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Freehand Selection Tool, draw around the cluster

Copy one of the papers from the scrap kit that will match your tube. Selections-Invert, hit delete.
Selections-None. Move paper below cluster.
Have your Foreground colour the same colour as the paper & your Background colour white

Go to Effects-Plugins-FiltersUnlimited 2.0- Render-Clouds(fore-/background colour), default setting.

Make top layer active, copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Duplicate your tube & bring the original copy
below the cluster layer. Eraser Tool - top tube layer, carefully erase the bottom part of your tube so it looks
like the tube is sitting inside of the cluster (see mine for example)

Cross out the eyes on bottom layer (white) Merge Visible all other layers. Paste the paper you used before as
a new layer just above the bottom white layer - New Mask Layer - From Image with these settings

Merge Group - resize 90% Bicubic - all layers unchecked. Merge Down - Duplicate & on original layer - Adjust-
Blur-Gaussian Blur 15. You can apply an Effect to this layer if you wish. I went to Effects-Texture Effects-Texture
& used one of the texture effects in there. Add you name & correct copyright.
Crop Tool - crop to remove excess white background. You may have to resize once more. I resized mine 80% Bicubic-all layers checked.
Save as a *Png
