Little Miss Muffin Tutorial



Click on the image to see larger version

**As with a lot of my tutorials, I use free scrap kits from a lot of different scrap kit makers.
I do include the link to the site/page those scrap kits can be obtained from, but sometimes
those scrap kits become no longer available or the site closes. When this happens, I do endeavor
to add a new link, but if I don't, please use another scrap kit of your choice that is almost
the same as the one that I used in my tutorials. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.**


You will need:

Tube - I used one of Suzanne Willcott's cute little girl tubes.
You need to be a registered member of GorjussArt.com to purchase
her tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrap kit called 'Funky Mix' from FantasyMoments Scraps

template. Make bottom layer (white) active - go to IMAGE-CANVAS SIZE with these
settings



Delete top layer - my TOU.
Magic Wand, click Oval Back layer - copy & paste a paper from scrap kit as a
new layer. (I resized the papers 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked, but that is up
to you.) Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Adjust-Sharpen. Give this
