Gothiquesque




In this tutorial I used the art of Alayna Magnan which I purchased from CILM.
Alayna now sells her tubes at mypsptubes.

I used a scrapkit called Gothiquesque by CBJ.
Please visit Jo's blog here for details. 
You will also require a mask of your choice.

I recoloured some of the elements in the kit to compliment my tube.  




Open a new canvas 650 x 600 pixels and floodfill with white.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_Mesh and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%.  Effects - sharpen - unsharp mask radius - 2, strength -50, clipping - 5. Apply a drop shadow horizontal and vertical 2, opacity 70, blur 3. Move the mesh over a little to the left.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_Clock and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%.  Apply a drop shadow horizontal and vertical 5, opacity 60, blur 10.  Move over slightly to the right.

Open GBJ_Gothiquesque_BarbWireSkull and paste as  new layer.  Resize 80%. Effects - sharpen - unsharp mask with the same settings as before.  Apply a drop shadow horizontal and vertical 5, opacity 70, blur 5. Position as my example.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_StitchedHeart and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%. Apply the same drop shadow as you did for the clock. Position as my example.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_GlitterSpill and paste as a new layer.  Duplication this layer a couple of times, drag the layers down until they are just above the mesh layer and position around the tag.  Add a drop shadow to each layer the same as for the barbwireskull.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_Ivy, click on your top tube layer and paste as a new layer. Resize 50% and then 80%. Image - rotate - free rotate, settings Direction right, degrees 90. Duplicate this layer, flip and mirror. Effects - sharpen - unsharp mask with the same settings as before and position. Apply a drop shadow to each layer the same as for the clock.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_Twisted Ribbon. Resize 50% and then 80%. Rotate the image, unsharp mask and apply a drop shadow the same as for the ivy. Place in position.

Open CBJ_Gothiquesque_Paper 8, click on your bottom background layer and select all, make a new layer and paste the paper into the selection. Apply a mask of your choice.

Add any other elements of your choice, I added two dragonflies.

Add your copyright and text.
