Coming to an End Tutorial

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Ismael Rac's free to use tubes
You can purchase his tubes from
HERE - you mat also find some of his free tubes in there.
Scrap kit called Time For Winter from FantasyMoments Scraps
Font I used is called Nadall from
Mask 84 from Chelle of WeeScotsLass
Scroll down the page till you see her download link for WSL-Masks 61-120

New white canvas 700x700

Copy & paste one of the Heart FRame elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 90% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked.

Magic wand, click inside the Heart Frame as well as inside the ribbon. Go to Selections-
Modify-Expand 8

Copy & paste a paper from scrap kit as a new layer - Selections-Invert, hit delete.
Move the paper layer below the Heart Frame layer. Selections-None.

Make the Heart Frame layer active & give this drop shadow

We will use that drop shadow throughout this tutorial now.

Copy & paste one of the Heart Dangler elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize
40% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen - give drop shadow. Move the Heart Dangler up so
the string is touching the berries on the Holly. Eraser Tool, erase the string showing over the holly.

Copy & paste one of the Flower elements from scrap kit as a new layer. I used Element 74. Resize 40%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked - Adjust-Sharpen - give drop shadow. Move over to bottom left of the Heart Frame,
duplicate-Image-Mirror - move the mirrored flower over to the original flower. Merge Down these 2 layers. Duplicate
Image-Mirror - move the duplicated flowers over to the right side of the Heart Frame, like this

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer, resize if needed. Now, you can move your tube down under the duplicated flowers
if you wish or you can leave it as the top layer. Erase any of the tube poking out from the duplicated flowers. Give
drop shadow.

Make bottom layer (white) active - copy & paste another paper from scrap kit as a new layer. Open up & minimise
Mask 84. Go to New Mask Layer-From Image & use these settings

Merge Group

Cross out the eyes on the bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers.
Resize merged image 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.

Preset Shape-Circle-width 2 - null background colour in colour palette - draw a circle around your merged image
holding down the SHIFT key while drawing the circle.

Text Tool using the font I supplied or your own font, background colour of choice - foreground coloured nulled,
line the cross up on top of circle & type in this saying or your own.
"Another Year Coming To An End"
Continue typing the saying so it goes around the circle

When you are happy with the wording, go across to your layers, click on the + sign to open it. Null the bottom
layer as shown in my screen shot

Then click on the top layer - Convert to Raster Layer. Give the wording this subtle drop shadow

Merge Down the wording to youyr merged image. Add your name & correct copyright. Merge these down as well. You
should only have 2 layers in your layers palette.
Click COPY on top blue bar & paste as a New Image on your workspace. Your image should now have a transparent
background. You can resize if you want. Save as a *Png.
