Every Witch Way





In this tutorial I used a tube called Halloween Jester and
matching kit Every Witch Way by
You can purchase both items separately or as a bundle here
(both are on offer at the time of writing this tutorial).

You will also need a mask, I used Monti’s circle mask, here.

Font is an unfortunate event, here.





Remember to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will be a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 5.



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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used gemini_everywitchway_paper4.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply the mask.  Resize 80%.

Open gemini_everywitchway_frame2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75% and move up and to the right a little.

Open gemini_everywitchway_paper4 again and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, do not deselect.

Open your tube, mirror, copy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open gemini_everywitchway_cobweb and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position on the frame (there will be a gap on the left hand side but this will be covered by the main tube), apply the drop shadow.  Your tag should look something like my screenshot below.


Open gemini_everywitchway_squiggle3 and paste as a new layer.  Drag down so its just above the mask layer and place in position.  No shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_starscatter and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_everywitchway_ghost and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, drag down below the tree, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open your tube again, undo the mirror, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_leaves and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, drag down below the main tube, place in position on the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_branch2 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_branch1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position, erase the bottom of the stalk that is below the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_jackolantern and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_fallenberries2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, rotate 90 degrees to the left and then mirror, drag down below the jackolantern, place in position, erase the bottom of the stalk that shows below the lantern and apply the drop shadow. 

Open gemini_everywitchway_fallenberries1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_fabricflower and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position behind the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_flower1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_crimped ribbon and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_everywitchway_broom and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_everywitchway_hootowl and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your elements and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, open genimi_everywitchway_sparkles2, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 90%, mirror and flip, erase some of the sparkles so they look like they are wrapped around the tube.

Crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.

Open gemini_everywitchway_spider and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position on your name and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, export your tag a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png. I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  I would, as always, love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
