Macabre



Macabre

In this tutorial I used the art of Alicia Mujica.
You need a license to use this tube,
I purchased mine here.

I used an amazing scrapkit called “Macabre” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Sarah!

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 19, here.

I used the font Pharmacy, which is a free font, here.

Remember to sharpen those elements after resizing/rotating to counteract the blurriness, check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.



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

Open sb_pmt_macabre_pp2 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask.  Resize 80%, move over to the left hand side, duplicate and flip and mirror the duplicate.

Open sb_pmt_clock stamp and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and move over a little up and to the right.  Apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_frame3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and move over to the right.

Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10. Copy the paper again, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste into the selection.  Do not de-select.

Open the close up of the tube, mirror it and paste as a new layer.  Resize as needed and position nicely in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube.  Apply the drop shadow to both the frame and the tube layers and set the blend mode on the tube to overlay.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_back drop 2 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 60%, drag down to just above the mask layer and place in position behind the frame.

Open your body tube, paste it as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open sb_pmt_macabre_mannequin and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag down below the tube, place in position a little to the left of her and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_horse and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open sb_pmt_macabre_flower 2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 35% and place in position on the left hand side, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_flower 1 and paste as a new layer.  Again resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_bow 3 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_macabre_flower 3 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary 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.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.
