Memories





Memories


In this tutorial I am using the art of Alicia Mujica.
You need a license to use Alicia’s art, you can get one here
(please note, you need to request a license specifically for Alicia’s art).

I am using a freebie kit called “Memories of the Past” by
Schnegge's Scraps.
The kit is part of a blog train and you can get Schnegge’s part here
The kit is available in both full size and tagger's size,
I used the tagger's size.
Thank you Schnegge!

You will also need a mask, I used Melissaz Creationz mask 1, here.

Script font of choice.


**********
 
Don’t forget to sharpen those elements when you have resized/rotated them otherwise they will be blurry (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

Drop shadow used throughout is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used paper09_motp_Schnegge.  Make a new layer on your canvas, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 85%.

Open frame04_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.

Open paper02_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer below the frame layer. Resize 80%, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess paper. Apply the drop shadow to the frame layer.

Open stars_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, position the stars towards the top, left hand side of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open collegeblock_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open corset_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open angelbear_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open books02_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open vanillaflower_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open notespaper_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open decobottle_motp_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Crop your tag and resize if required, add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
