Feel Good Tutorial

Click on image to see larger version

You will need:

Tube - I used one of Caron Vinson fairy's.
You need to be a registered member of CILM
to purchase her tubes, but any tube will do.
Template No:5 from WildCreationz
You will find the template under Templates 1-10
nearly half way down the page.
Scrap kit called 'Feel Good' from Bastelgalaxy
Plugin Filter-Two Moon-RotoBlades

Open up Template 5 - click shift D to copy it. Delete the original
template. Make the bottom layer (white) active, go to Image-Canvas Size
with these settings

Flood Fill with white - enlaging the background gives us a bit more
room to work with. We will resize at the end.

Click on the very top layer - delete the TOU layer.
Open 5 papers from the scrap kit, zoom them down to a thumbnail size for now.

Make the dark grey square layer active on the template - Selections-Float-Defdloat,
copy one of the papers you have opened & paste as a new layer - Selections-Invert,
hit delete. Selections-None. Delete the origional square layer. Give your new paper
layer this drop shadow. We will use this drop shadow on all the paper layers

Continue on with each layer till you get to the top bars of the template with your
diffrent papers. Remember to delete each original layer. Add drop shadow each paper layer.
Cross out the eyes on all layers except the 6 top layers of the template (bars). Merge
Visible all the 'bar' layers. This is what your layers should look like

With your newly merged top layer - Select All-Float-Defloat, past another of your papers as
a new layer-Selections-Invert, hit delete. Delete the merged layer. Don't give that new top layer
any drop shadow.

Copy & paste one of the Wrap elements as anew layer - now move the Wrap layer down to just above
the big square layer (2nd last layer). The Wrap should look as though it is behind the small circles.
Give the Wrap the drop shadow as before.

Copy & paste any other of the Elements you like - you may have to resize them a little.
When you have finished - copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Give drop shadow.

Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white)- Merge Visible all other layers. Open the eyes
on bottom layer. Copy & paste one of the Flower Branches Elements from scrap kit as a new layer.
Move over to the right of your merged image then move the Flowers under Merged Image. Duplicate Flowers
Mirror. Cross out eyes on bottom layer once more - Merge Visible all other layers. Open the eyes up again.
Have your merged layer active - resize 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Duplicate & on the original
merged layer go to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 25.
Plugin Filters-Twoo Moon-RotoBlade with default settings. Make top layer active - Merge Down. Add your
name & correct copyright. Crop Tool - crop excess white background. Cross out eyes on bottom layer once more.
Merge Visible all other layers - Copy & past as a New Image on your workspace. Resize 85% Bicubic- all
layers CHECKED. Your image should have a transparent background. Save as a *Png.
