Freedom




In this tutorial I am using the art of Katherine Barber.
You require a license to use Katherine’s tubes,
which you can purchase here.

I am using a very pretty scrap kit called “Symphony” by

You will also require a mask.
Again I am using Monti’s circle mask
which you can get here.




Open a new transparent canvas 550 by 500 pixels and flood fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, choose one of the papers, I used CBJ_Symp_paper2, paste into the selection, de-select and apply your mask. Resize 85% and lower the opacity to 50.

Open CBJ_Stars_Round and paste as a new layer. Resize 55% and unsharp mask (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask, radius and clipping on 5, strength 50). Apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 50, blur 3.

Open CBJ_Symp_LeafRound and paste as a new layer, mirror and flip.  Resize 65% and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 60, blur 5.

Open CBJ_GlitterRainbow and paste as a new layer. Rotate to the right 80% and resize 60%. Drag down below the leaf frame layer and place in position. Erase the parts that are outside the leaf round layer.

Open CBJ_Symp_Drops and paste as a new layer. Resize 40% and unsharp mask as before. Apply the same drop shadow as the stars. Place in position and erase any that show outside the leaf round layer.

Open CBJ_Symp_Lillyflower and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the same drop shadow as the leaf round layer.

Open CBJ_Symp_Feather and paste as a new layer. Resize 90% and place in position. There is already a drop shadow on the layer so no need to apply one.

Open CBJ_Symp_Toadstall and paste as a new layer. Duplicate, resize the duplicate 70% and mirror. Place in position and apply the last drop shadow to each layer.

Open CBJ_Symp_Birdcage and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, mirror and place in position between the two toadstalls. Apply the last drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required and apply the last drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Symp_Hummingbird01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 35%  and duplicate. Mirror the duplicate, unsharp mask as before on both layers, position nicely on your tag and apply the last drop shadow to each.

Open CBJ_Symp_Hummingbird02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 35% and duplicate. Mirror the duplicate, rotate the original bird 20 degrees to the right, unsharp mask as before on both layers, position and apply the last drop shadow.

Crop your tag as required. This is quite a small tag and will probably not require any resizing.
