Happy Fall Tutorial

Click on image to larger version

You will need:

Tube - I used one of ©Leilana's cute Halloween tubes
You can get the from HERE
but you can use any tube you like.
Scrap kit called 'Nature' from Vivi's Designs
Font I used is called Clovis Cheury

New white canvas 850x750

This may seem large, but we will resize it at the end.

Copy & paste one of the Fence Elements from scrap kit as a new layer
Move across to the left of your canvas - duplicate-Image-Mirror.

Make the bottom layer (white) active.
Copy & paste one of the Paillettes Elements as a new layer - move across
to the left a little - duplicate - Image-Mirror.

Copy & paste one of the Stamp Frames from scrap kit as a new layer.
Resize 75% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen.
Magic Wand - click inside each of the frames - Selections-Modify-Expand 4.
Copy & paste one of the papers from scrap kit as a new layer. Now the paper is
just wide enough to fit across all the frames. Selections-Invert, hit delete.
Selections-None-. Move the paper layer below the frame layer.
Make frame layer active - give this drop shadow

Copy & paste one of the Flower Bunch Elements from scrap kit as a new layer.
Resize 80% Bicubic-all layera unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen. Move across to the far
left frame - duplicate - Image-Mirror. Give each Flower Bunch the drop shadow.

Copy & paste one of the Ribbon Elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Move down
& across to the left a little - duplicate - Image-Mirror. Give each ribbon layer
drop shadow.

This is what your image should look similar to by now.

At this stage, you can add any other of the elements from scrap kit as you like.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - resize if needed. I had to resize my ©Leilana tube
45% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Add drop shadow to your tube.

Cross out the eyes on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Now we will
resize our finished image. Open eyes up on bottom layer.
I resized my image 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Add your name & correct copyright. Merge these layers down - you should now only have 2 layers.

Crop Tool - crop excess white background. Resize about 75% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED.
Click COPY on the top blue bar & paste as a New Image on your workspace. Youy image should now
have a transparent background.
Save as *Png.
