Just Smile Tutorial

**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 am using one of Sue MIllers lovely tubes
You need to be a registered member of MyTagArt
to purchase Sue's tubes - ©
but any tube will do.
Scrap kit called 'Polkadot' from Designs By Vabs
Font I used is called 'Boingo'
Plugin Filter:
Eyecandy 4000 - Gradient Glow

New white canvas 700x700

Copy & paste the Wire element from the scrap kit as a new layer. Duplicate & on the original
wire layer go to - Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 5.
Make top layer active - copy & paste Leafs element from scrap kit as a new laye. Colourize to
match your tube. Give the Leafs this drop shadow

Make top layer active. Copy & paste (Star) Frame element from scrap kit as a new layer. Colourize to suit your tube.
Magic Wand - click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 4. Copy & paste a paper from scrap kit
as a new layer - Selections-Invert, hit delete.
Move the paper layer below the frame layer. Make frame layer active & give frame same drop shadow as before.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Place within the frame - I erased around bottom part of my tube so
it looks as though it is popping out of frame.Drop shadow your tube.

Copy & paste one of the Bottle Cap elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Give drop shadow. Place where it
will look nice.

Copy & paste any other of the elements from scrap kit you like, giving them drop shadow.
When you have finished adding the elements, cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers.
Open eyes up - have your merged image active. Resize merged image 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Move to the
left a little.

Copy & paste one of the Wordart elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Place where it will look good. Plugin Filters-
Eyecandy 4000-Gradient Glow with these settings

Then apply this slight drop shadow

Add your name & correct copyright. I added the gradient glow to the name, but that choice is yours.
Crop Tool - crop excess white background. Cross out eyes on bottom layer once more - MERGE VISIBLE all other layers.
Have your merged image active - click COPY & paste as a new image on your workspace. Resize 82% Bicubic- all
layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png.
