♥ Blossoms Galore ♥

This tutorial was written by Marta on January 26, 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 Dael Calligraphy)
Mask - WSL_Mask82 - You can download from Chelle's blog HERE
Mura's Meister/Copies
ScrapKit *Lotus Blossoms* by Denise a.k.a. Scrappy Redhead
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Jennifer Janesko, you can find her licensed art at CILM.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste paper15 as a new layer. Open your mask, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Adjust/Add Noise/Random/Set to 30/Monochrome checked.

Copy & paste flower5 as a new layer. Effects/Mura's Meister/Copies with the following settings: Change to encircle/Number 6. Copy & paste flower6 as a new layer. Effects/Mura's Meister/Copies with the following settings: Change to encircle/Number 6. Image/Free Rotate/Rotate/Right 30 degrees. Add drop shadow to both layers.

Copy & paste frame1 as a new layer. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame, Selections/Modify/Expand by 5/Selections/Invert. Copy & paste paper15 as a new layer and hit Delete on the paper layer. Add drop shadow to frame. Copy & paste frame2 as a new layer, and resize as necessary so it covers just the outer part of frame1. See my tag for reference. Add drop shadow. Add your tube and place it between the two frame layers. Add drop shadow to tube. When happy with placement, merge the frames, paper, and tube layers.

Copy & paste fan2 as a new layer. Image/Free Rotate/Rotate/Left 15 degrees and add drop shadow. Copy & paste flower5, flower6, and flower8 as a new layer, resize by 50%, and arrange to the bottom left of the frame. When happy, add drop shadows to all flower layers.

Add any bows, butterflies, dragonflies, 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!
