CT TUTORIAL ~ Pilgrim Spirit

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 November 24, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.  (I used "Miss Pilgrim 1" by Alehandra Vanhek, which you can purchase here.)

-- scrap kit of choice (I used the made-to-match kit by Tagcatz Design, which you can purchase here)
-- mask of choice (I am using a mask by Kris.)
-- template of choice (I am using a template by Pooker.)
-- plugins EyeCandy, Visman and Mura Meister Copies.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font of choice.  I used NotNorvalHMK.

1.  Open template, duplicate, close original and save the template copy as your new canvas.

2.  Open up three papers of choice.  Select the bottom circle layer.  Select all, float, defloat and paste in paper.  Invert, then hit your delete key.  Repeat with the small circle, small square and large square layers.

3.  Recolor the dotted square layer and thin rectangle layers with a color from your tube or kit (choose a different color for each layer).

4.  Repaste one of your papers as your bottom layer.  Apply mask, merge group.

5.  In your plugins menu, go to VM Distortion > Mosaic Ripple and apply the following settings:

6.  Select one of the rectangles and apply the Blinds effect (effects menu: texture effects), using a color from your tube as the blind color.  Repeat on second rectangle.

7.  Paste in your tube and resize as needed.  Apply drop shadow and position where preferred.

8.  Let's add in your elements.   Numbers/names apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Any directions for placement of elements are optional - you can follow my placements or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

73, 74 (flowers) - 35-45%.
78 (flowered branch) - 40%.  in plugins menu, go to Mura Meister Copies and apply the cards setting, setting the number of copies to 23.  do not touch any other settings.
30 (bunny) - 65%
11 and 12 (trees) - 55%.
80 (leaves) - 45%.
95 (acorns) - 60%.
96 (bow) - 40%.
81 (heart) - 25%.
29 (squash) - 35%
83 (rose) - 30%.
90 (decal) - 40%.  NO drop shadow.

9.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  In your effects menu, go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings (change color to a light gray): 

10.  In your plugins menu, go to Eye Candy Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

11. Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark and add it on.
