Click on image to see larger version

No scrap kit or filters used in this tutorial, just your imagination
This is a long tutorial as I will show you each step as well as the
animation steps. Have a cuppa ready & take your time.
You will need to have a good knowledge of Animation Shop to do this tutorial.

You will need:

A close up tube & a standing tube - I used one of Keith Garveys tubes
You need to be a registered member of PSP Tubes Emporium
HERE
to purchase his tubes, but any 2 tubes from the same artist will do.
Font I used is called 'FashionVictim' from Dafont.com
HERE
The wordArt I used on my template is from Caitlin of Cupcake Sprinkles

Thank you Caitlin
My 'Blast' template

Open up my 'Blast' template - click Shift & D to copy the template.
Close original template.

Select a light colour from your tube for the foreground colour & a dark colour
from your tube as the background colour



Make the Rectangle-Noise layer active - Selections-Float-Defloat-new raster layer.
Flood with your Gradient with these settings



Keep selected - go to Adjust-Add-Remove Noise with these settings



Selections-None.Delete original layer.
Make Rectangle layer active - flood fill with the gradient. Add this drop shadow



Make Rectangles layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat-new raster layer. Flood Fill
with your dark colour. Then go to Effects-Texture Effects-Blinds with these settings



Selections-None. Add drop shadow as before.
Make Circle Noise layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat-New raster layer.
Flood fill with your gradient. Add Noise as before.Delete original layer.

Make Circle layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat- new raster layer, flood fill with your
gradient & add noise but reduce Noise to 20. Effects-Texture Effects-Blinds as before but
untick the Horizontal. Selections-Invert, copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer.
Move the tube within the selected circle. When happy with placement, click delete. Selections-
None. Add drop shadow to your tube.

Make the Stars layer active. Select All-Float-Defloat-new raster layer, flood fill with the dark
colour. Effects-3D Effects-Inner Bevel with these settings



Selections-None. Delete original layer. Duplicate your coloured stars & on bottom stars layer got
to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 10. Then add the noise effect as before.

Now, you can either leave the WordArt as it is or you can colourize it. That is your choice
I just duplicated the wordart & & blurred the bottom layer & then added the Blinds Effect.

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

Add your name & correct copyright - when you have done this Merge Down both layers. You should now
have only 2 layers.



Copy & paste your standing tube as a new layer. Place the tube to the left side. Add drop shadow.
Crop Tool - crop excess white background. You can resize your image now if you wish.I resized mine
76% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED.

Animation:

cross out the eyes on the standing tube layer, Make your merged image layer active - copy, over to
Animation Shop, paste as a NEW ANIMATION. Minimise that image for now.
Back to your PSP, uncross the eyes on standing tube layer, making that layer active, click COPY,
back to AS - paste as a NEW ANIMATION.
In Animation Shop with your standing tube active, go to Effects-Image Effects-Explode with these settings



Click on the Customize button & type in 40



Go to EDIT-Select All. Now bring up your merged image - Click COPY on top bar, hold down your CTRL key & L keys to duplicate
your Merged Image 19 times. Go to EDIT-Select All - back to your Exploded standing tube, click COPY,
make your Merge Image copies active & Paste Into SELECTED FRAMES, being careful where you paste the exploded
tube.
Once you have done that, click on Frame 1 - go to Animation-Frame Properties - Display Time 100.
Back to Edit-Select All again. Click Copy on top bar - go to very last frame (19) click it to make it active
& Paste After Currant Frame. Then go to Animation-Reverse Frames. Click your PREVIEW button to see how the
finished image looks. If happy, go to EDIT-Select All & then save as a *Gif image.
