Heaven Sent Tutorial

This is a simple tutorial using a mask & Xenofex 2 Plugin Filter
Plus a paper from the scrap kit & your imagination

You will need:

A tube - I used one from Lori Karels
You need to be a registered member of MyTagArt
to purchase her tubes, but any fairy tube will do.
Scrap kit called "Imagination" from FantasyMonents Scraps
Mask 36 from Zuzzanna
That mask is on the first page, just click the download link
she has there.
Font called 'Fashion Victom'
Plugin Filter - Xenofex 2-Constellation
Animation Shop

New white canvas 700x700

Open up mask 36 & minimise it.
On your white canvas go to Select All-Float-Defloat.
Add a new raster layer - copy a paper from the scrap kit & Paste
Into Selection.

New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group. Resize your mask layer 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Place the tube where it will look nice.
Give your tube this drop shadow

Add your name & correct copyright.


Duplicate your mask layer 3 times to give you 4 layers. Cross out the eyes
on the top 3 layers of the mask, making the original mask layer active.
Go to Effects-Plugins-Xenofex 2-Constellation with these settings

Next, make the next mask layer active, uncross the eyes & cross out the eyes
on the original mask layer - add the Xenofex 2 effect, but hit the random button.
Continue to do this for the next 2 layers of the mask.
Once you have completed the filter effects, resize your image around 85% Bicubic-all layers

Now we will import our layers to Animation Shop.
Make bottom mask layer active, making sure you have the eyes crossed out on the other 3
layers of the mask - COPY MERGED - Animation Shop - Paste as a New Image.

Back to PSP, cross out eyes on bottom mask layer, make next mask layer active, uncrossing the eyes.
COPY MERGED, across to AS - Paste After Currant Frame.
Continue doing this until you have all 4 layers in AS.
Go to EDIT-SELECT ALL. Then go to ANIMATION-FRAME PROPERTIES & change the frame speed to 15.
