CT TUTORIAL ~ At the Cabaret

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 February 3, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Laure 1 by Vi Nina.  She is available to purchase here.

-- scrap kit of choice (try to choose one with a scenic paper or two).   I am using the beautiful match kit by Tagcatz called "Laure's Cabaret", which you can purchase here.
-- template of choice.  I used a template by Blissfully Beth.
-- 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 Glass.
-- font of choice.  I am using A&S Harlequin.

1.  Open template, duplicate and close original.  Save copy as your new canvas.  if using same template, delete the layers with the year.

2.  Copy and paste your papers into your canvas.  Select the scenic paper and move it over the center circle layer.  Select all, float, defloat, invert, then select paper layer and hit your delete key.  Repeat this step with a second paper and your frame layer.

3.  Paste your third paper under the frame layer.  Using your selection tool, draw a rectangle inside the frame.  Selections > invert, then move to paper layer and hit delete key.

4.  Paste in your tube and resize as needed.  Apply drop shadow and position inside the frame.

5.  Paste in a fourth paper as your bottom layer.  Apply mask and merge group.

6.  [optional - this step for same template I am using]  Select the bottle shape and change color to match your tube or kit.  In plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Glass and apply the Glass Tubing preset.  Repeat with shoe shape.  Apply drop shadow to each of these layers.

7.  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:

10, 43, 73 (flowers) - 30-40%.  place in a cluster and merge these layers together.
30 (ribbon) - 50%.  place behind frame.
6 (phonograph) - 45%.
62 (film) - 30%
53 (branch) - 40%.
16 (music bar) - 40%.
26 (high heel) - 45%.  duplicate to make a pair, then merge together.
48 (top hat) - 40%.
14 (star scatter) - place behind frame and duplicate three times.  NO drop shadow.
40 (firework) - place under frame at top and duplicate once.  NO drop shadow.
50 (sparkle trail) - NO drop shadow.

8.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  Apply the same Eye Candy Glass setting used in step six.

10.  Apply basic drop shadow to name layer, but change color to a light color from your tube or kit.

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