Mintage






In this tutorial I used the bonus tube “Poof” by
Barbara Jensen
but the tutorial will work well with most of Barbara’s tubes.
You can purchase her the tubes at

Please have a look at my “About my tutorials” page before you start if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Copy paper 1, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper in the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 110%.

Paste element 2 as a new layer and resize 85%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it, copy the paper again and paste it into the selection, deselect.   Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste element 28 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below the merged layer and position top right, duplicate and move the duplicate down and to the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste your tube as a new layer on the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag  below the tube,  position on the right and apply the drop shadow, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left

Paste element 9 as a new layer,  resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position erasing the top of the chain and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 55%, drag below the ribbons and the watch, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30 as a new layer on the top, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place both copies in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 45%, mirror and flip, position on the right and apply the drop shadow, duplicate mirror the duplicate and position on th e left.  

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 28%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 30%, mirror and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
