♥ Berry Beautiful ♥

This tutorial was written by Marta on January 17, 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'm using Chantilly Lace NF)
Mask - WSL_Mask117 - You can download from Chelle's blog HERE
EC4 - Gradient Glow
ScrapKit *BERRY DELIGHT* by Brandi of Grunge and Glitter Scraps.
You can purchase it HERE.

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

Let's get started:

Open a new image 500x500, set background to white. Copy & paste paper11 as a new layer. Open Becky_Mask022, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Effects/Texture Effects/Weave/Set all to 1, weave & gap color to #ffffff, and Fill gaps checked.

Copy & paste frame1 as a new layer. Using your magic wand, click inside each frame. Selections/Select All/Float/Defloat/Selections/Modify/Expand by 4. Selections/Invert. Using paper 11, copy & paste as a new layer and move under the frame layer. Add your tubes or I used the same tube but colorized two of them. When your tubes are positioned, hit Delete on the paper layer and on all 3 tube layers. Merge your frame, paper layer, and tube layers.

Copy & paste the flower doodle and doodle2 as new layers and position. Copy & paste wordart2 and position above the frame. See my tag for reference. Add drop shadow to the wordart and apply EC4 Gradient Glow with the width set to 5, color white.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text, add drop shadow and EC4 Gradient Glow with same settings, copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
