CT TUTORIAL ~ Sakli's Boudoir

NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written October 9, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Sakli by Selisan Al-Gaib.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using the beautiful match kit by Blissful Designs, which you can purchase here.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Angel Tears.

1.  Open a new canvas, 650x200.  Select a paper from your kit and paste it as your background.

2.  Paste in your tube and resize as needed.  Apply drop shadow and place where desired.

3.  Open the following elements:  high heels, ring, flower candle, powder compact, lipstick and wine bottle.  Place heels opposite tube, resize 40%..  Place ring by the heel point, resize to 5%.  Use the soften tool on the back of the ring's band to give it the appearance of being "around" the heel.  

4.  Place the candle and makeup elements next to the shoes and the wine bottle behind the shoes.  Resize candle to 12%, lipstick to 15%, compact to 20% and bottle to 30%.   Apply basic drop shadow to each.

5.  Open a butterfly or floral element.  resize to 15%.  Go to Mura Meister Copies in your plugins menu and use the wall paper (perspective) preset, default settings.  drop this layer behind tube layer.

6.  Open a sparkle element and paste in behind tube.  Resize if desired.

7.  [optional] - Open a corner shaped element and resize to 10%.  Paste in a corner of the banner.  Duplicate and flip, merge these layers.  Duplicate again and mirror so that the element is in all four corners.  Merge these layers.

8.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position it to your liking. In your plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

9.  Create a new layer for your copyright/license and add it on.

1.  Create new canvas - size 180x180.

2.  Paste in bottom paper from banner, resize if desired and position to your liking.

3.  Paste in tube, resize if needed.

4.  Paste in butterfly copies layer, resize 55%, position to liking.  Repeat with sparkles layer but do not resize.

5.  If step 7 was completed in banner, repeat on avatar.

6.  Repeat steps 8 and 9 for initial and copyright.
