♥ Beauty 'n the Blues ♥

This tutorial was written by Marta on January 29, 2009. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is coincidental. Do not copy and paste this tutorial elsewhere on the net. Absolutely NO Scripting and/or translating of this tutorial.

For this tutorial you will need:

Tube of choice
Font of choice (I used Ingrid Darling)
Mask - sg_scraps_edge by Essex Girl, you can download it HERE
VM Extravaganza/Plastic Surgery
ScrapKit *Feelin Stitchy* by Miss Foxy of Miss Foxy's Designs.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Jamie Kidd, you can find his licensed art at CILM.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste paper1 as a new layer. Open sg_scraps_edge, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Effects/VM Extravaganza/Plastic Surgery/Set to default settings.

Copy & paste frame5 as a new layer. Copy & paste paper10 as a new layer and move under the frame layer. Copy & paste your tube, add drop shadow, and move between the frame and paper layer. Using your Magic Wand, click inside the frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 5/Selections/Invert and hit Delete on your tube and paper layers. Add drop shadow to the frame layer and merge these layers. Duplicate. On the original frame layer, Image/Rotate/Right 15 degrees and position to your liking.

Uning your Rectangle Tool, Foreground null, and Background to a paper or color of your choice, draw out several rectangles and add drop shadow. I added the brackets to each side of one of the rectangles, and also added buttons on each side. Add drop shadow.

Add any additional bows, butterflies, wordart, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text, copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
