CT TUTORIAL ~ Autumn's Witch

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 September 17, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Julia Fox's "Autumn Witch 6".  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice that includes at least one scenic paper.   I am using an awesome matching kit by Suzie, which you can purchase here.
-- [optional] candle tube.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Protection.

1.  Open a new canvas, 650x200.  Select a scenic paper from your kit and paste it as your background.

2.  Paste in your tube and resize as needed.  Apply drop shadow and place on right side of canvas.

3.  Open the following elements: witch hat, glass bottles, book, crow, at least one flower, at least one leaf, small flying crows.

4.  Resize hat to 25%, crow to 20%, book to 30%, candle to 20% and bottles and flower to 15%. Place in group opposite tube.

5.  Resize small flying crows to 50% and place in center.

6.  Resize leaf to preferred size and place in upper left corner.  Duplicate and mirror.  Merge these layers together and duplicate again.  Flip layer copy so you have the leaf in all four corners of your banner.

7.  Create new raster layer and floodfill with a dark color from your tube or kit.  Modify > contract by 4 then hit your delete key.  Apply noise and drop this layer just below the corner accents.

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

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

10.  Create a new layer for your copyright/license and add it on.

1.  Create new canvas - size 180x180.

2.  Paste in paper from banner, resize if desired and position to your liking.

3.  Paste in your tube.  Position her on the left hand side.

4.  Copy the following elements from your banner over to your avatar:  crow, small flying crows, book, candle and bottles.  Resize all to between 40-65%.  place small flying crows in open space in the center and others opposite the tube.

5.  Repeat steps 6 and 7 to create border and corners.

6.  Repeat steps 8-10 for your initial and copyright.
