CT TUTORIAL ~ Provocative

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 June 3, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Selisan al-Gaib's gorgeous Pinup Imagine.  You can purchase her at S&CO.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using a great match kit by Lil Mz's Brainstorms, available here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by Kris.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Mochafloat Script.

1.  Choose a frame from your kit, duplicate, close original and save frame as your new canvas.  

2.  Paste in your tube, resize as needed, and apply drop shadow.  Place on the right hand side outside the frame.

3.  Select two papers with contrasting colors/patterns and paste into your canvas below the frame.  On the first, click your magic wand on the frame layer outside it.  Selections > modify > expand by 6, then return to paper layer and hit delete key.

4.  Apply mask to your other paper and merge group.

5.  Let's add 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 basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

1 (dressing screen) - 80%. place below frame layer on right.
68 (vanity table) - 40%.  place next to dressing screen.
24 (bottles and flower) - 12%.
37 (string of pearls) - 20%.  rotate 60 degrees left and "hang" on dressing screen corner.
69 (bottle) - 15%.
98 (hair comb) - 7%.
101 (compact) - 7%.
26 (gold swirl) - 40%.  apply Mura Meister Copies plugin, line (rotate) preset, default settings.  Resize to 70%, move to top of frame and drop below framed paper layer.
10 (clock) - 20%.
59 (pitcher) - 11%.
15 (purse) - 10%.
64, 110, 112 (flowers) - resize to sizes preferred and place opposite tube outside frame.
17 (statue) - place behind flowers but above frame.
16 (key) - 30%.  place next to flowers.
102 (sparkles) - place as top layer.  NO drop shadow.

6.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  In effects menu, go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

7.  In plugins menu, go to Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

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