CT TUTORIAL ~ Callie's Garden View

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 April 10, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Callie Kitty" by Ishika Chowdhury.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice.   I am using the match kit by Lil Mz's Brainstorms, which you can get here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by zuzzanna.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugin Eye Candy.
-- font of choice.  I am using Sophia.

1.  Select a frame from your kit, duplicate and close original.  Save frame as your new canvas.  [suggested frame - a window/door shaped frame]

2.  Select two papers, at least one scenic and paste them into your canvas.  Drop below frame layer.  If using a window/door shaped frame, resize the scenic paper as needed and position where preferred to show in the center panel only.  

3.  Click magic wand inside the frame opening.  Modify > expand by 10 > invert and hit delete key on paper layer.

4.  Apply mask to bottom paper and merge group.

5.  Paste in your tube and apply basic drop shadow.  Position where preferred.

6.   Now let's add some 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 place where preferred.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

75 (rug) - 70%.  place under kitty.
18, 19, 20, 29, 32 (flowers) - 50-70%.
86 (curly element) - 50%.  duplicate, mirror and merge copies together.  drop below frame layer.
72 (string ball) - 20%.
92 (milk bottle) - 35%.
69 (mouse) - 15%.
8 (books) - 55%.
100 (bird) - 20%.
102, 70 (ribbons) - resize if needed and place under main tube.

7.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

8.  In plugins menu, go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply these settings:

9.  Create new raster layer for your copyright and watermark.
