CT TUTORIAL ~ March Flowers

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 March 24, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.  (I used St. Patty's 2 by Julsy.  You can purchase her at S&CO here.)

-- flower and butterfly tubes of choice.  I recommend at least four different flowers.
-- template of choice.  I used template #84 by Designs by Ali.
-- textures of choice.  I used textures by mellowmint, flowerroad1501 and sanami276. You can also find these texture creators at DeviantArt. 
-- mask of choice.  I used a mask by .
-- plugins Xero, Visman, Mura Meister and Eye Candy.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font of choice.  I used Legendary Hollywood.

1.  Open your template file.  Duplicate, close the original and save the duplicate as a new canvas.  Delete the credit layer.

2.  Paste in your darkest texture as your background layer.  Apply mask and merge group.

3.  Select shape 1 layer.  Select all > float > defloat > invert and paste in a second texture.  Hit delete key.  Repeat this step with shape 2.

4.  Merge shapes 3-5 (the smaller shapes on top) together.  Repeat step 3 with another texture.

5.  Paste in your tube.  Resize as needed and apply drop shadow.  place on left side of canvas.

6.  Create new raster layer.  Use the default PSP tube Lawn to create a small carpet of grass.  drop this layer to just above shape 2.

7.  Paste your flower tubes onto the grassy patch where preferred.  If you need to cover up stems, use the lawn tube set at size 30.  [note - drop shadow BEFORE adding extra grass!]

8.  Paste in your butterfly tube(s) where preferred and add drop shadow.

9.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and place to your liking.  Go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

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

11.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark.
