Seasonal Splendour


 


In this tutorial I have used the art of Amy Brown.
You need a license to use Amy’s art.
I purchased mine from CILM but they are now available here.

The kit I used is a beautiful autumn kit called “Seasonal Slendour”
by Gemini Creationz.
Please visit Gemini’s blog here for details of where you can purchase the kit.

You will also need a mask, I used Insatiable Deams’ mask 565, here.

I used one of my favourite fonts, Tension, here.




Your elements will need to be sharpened after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness it causes; for more info check out my Tips and Tricks page.

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 one of the papers and copy, I used gemini_seasonalsplendour_p4.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 78% and mirror.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e17 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, mirror and flip, apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e16 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, position on the left hand side of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e28 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 70%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e41 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e42 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e5, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e8 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendours_e4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e6 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e27 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e33 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e23 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_seasonalsplendour_e26 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

 Check the positions of your elements and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text then export as a jpeg with comprsesion set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, you can email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
