CT TUTORIAL ~ Winter Coat

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 11, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Winter Coat by Andy Cooper.  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 Designs by Joan, which you can purchase here.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask from the Creative Misfits blog.  You can check out all their creations here.
-- the plugin Eye Candy Bevel Boss.
-- font of choice.  I am using Starfish.

1.   Select a frame of choice from your kit.  Duplicate, close original and save copy as your new canvas.

2.  Choose a scenic paper from your kit and paste under frame layer.  Position/resize to your liking if needed.  Return to frame layer, click outside with magic wand, selections > modify > expand by 10.  Return to paper layer and hit delete key.

3.  Paste in a second paper.  Apply your mask and merge group.

4.  Paste your tube in as the top layer.  Apply drop shadow.  Resize as needed and position on the right side of the 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:

25 (string beads) - 55%.  duplicate and place just above mask layer.
117 (heart pillow) - 40%.
54 (tag) - 45%.
61 (cap) - 40%.
52 (gold ornament) - 60%.
82 (straw ornament) - 50%.  place behind tube.
99 and 105 (cupcakes) - 40-50%.
112 and 113 (flowers) - 40-55%.  place behind tube.
7 (candies) - 30%.
27 (sparkle trail) - paste as top layer. NO drop shadow.

6.  Create a new raster layer.  Type your name and place it within the open frame space.  In your plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Bevel Boss and use the hubcap preset but change bevel placement to "inside marquee".

7.  Apply drop shadow to your name.

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