I feel pretty

I feel pretty

For this tutorial you will need a body tube and a close up tube.
I am using the fabulous art of Alicia Mujica.
You need a license to use Alicia’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using a cute girlie kit called “I Feel Pretty” by
You can get the kit here.

You will also need a mask,
I used Insatiable Dreams mask 598, here.

Font of choice.

Remember to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness caused (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_sp1.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply your mask. Resize 85%.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_frame3 and paste as a new layer. Rotate 15 degrees to the left and resize 85%. Move over slightly to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_frame2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, move over to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_frame1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 85%, position slightly to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_mirror and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, again move slightly over to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open your close up tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required. As we can't select the interior of the mirror, lower the opacity of the tube so you can see the mirror through it to get the position right. When you are happy, set the opacity of the tube to around 40 and erase the part that is outside and over the frame part of the mirror.

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

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_feather and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 80%, drag down below your main tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_lipstick and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position on the right hand side of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_yarn and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open dcorbitt_ifeelpretty_flower4 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open decorbitt_ifeelpretty_butterfly, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 45% and place in position. The butterfly already has a drop shadow so no need to add another.

Check the positions of all your layers and make any adjustments. When you are happy, 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.
