CT TUTORIAL ~ Angel Encircled

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 January 19, 2017.

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

-- scrap kit of choice (try to choose one with a scenic paper or two).   I am using the beautiful match kit by Kizzed by Kelz, which you can purchase here.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- mask of choice that matches your frame shape.  I am using a mask by Kris.
-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Bevel Boss.
-- font of choice.  I am using Xiomara.

1.  Open frame of choice, duplicate and close original.  Save copy as your new canvas.

2.  Select two papers, one scenic and one not.  Paste both under your frame, scenic paper on top.  Click around outside of frame with magic wand.  Selections > modify > expand by 10, return to paper layer and click delete.

3.  Apply mask to non-scenic paper and merge group.

4.  Paste in tube and apply drop shadow.  Resize as needed.  move so that your tube is standing/sitting on the outside of your frame.

5.  Let's add in some elements.  Note - Names/numbers apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  Placement directions are optional.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

95 (vase) - 55%.  
1, 16, 39, 120 (flowers) - 35-40%.
19 (swirl) - 60%.  go to Mura Meister > Copies in plugin menu and use the spiral preset, changing number of copies to 40-50.  Drop this layer just above the mask layer.
61 (leaf swirl) - 50%.  place behind flowers.  duplicate if needed.
18 (flower branch) - 70%.
20 and 30 (pine branches) - 40%.  Place above vase layer and erase excess up to lip of vase.
132 (hearts) - reduce layer opacity to 30% or below.  drop down to under frame layer.
71 (star scatter) - paste in above tube.  in drop shadow, reduce opacity to 25%.
124 (sparkle wave) - paste just above tube layer to arc across top of frame.  NO drop shadow.

6.   Create a new raster layer.  Type your name and place it to your liking.  In your plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Bevel Boss and use the ridged carve preset but change highlight and shadow colors to colors from your tube or kitt.

7.  Go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

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