Autumn







In this tutorial I used the art of
You can purchase Alex’s tubes at

I used the gorgeous fall kit “”Autumn Feel” from
The kit can be purchased at

I used the photo mask “Otoño-Autumn” by

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize it 38% then select it, float and defloat it.   Make a new layer, open paper 7, copy it and paste it into the selection, deselect and delete the original mask layer.

Paste frame 4, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the right.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the frame with your magic wand to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 5, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 2 into it.    Deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste frame 2 and resize it 55%.  Select the interior of each section of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame, fill the selections with colour #612601 and deselect.   Paste the tube, position in the left part of the frame, select the interior of the frame again and expand it as before, invert the selection and hit delete on the tube, deselect.  Repeat this with the middle part of the frame (don’t worry about the one on the right as you don’t see much of it) then change the blend mode on the tubes to “Hard Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  Turn off the white background, mask and merged layers, merge visible your new frame layers, re-open the closed layers and move your new merged layer into position.

Paste the main tube, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 80% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, drag between the two merged layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 50, resize 70%, erase the word “leaves”, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 33%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 just below the tube, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 55% and position along the bottom of the merged frame layer with the tubes.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position so the tube is sitting on it.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 20, resize 35%, drag below both copies of element 16, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33 just below the tube, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 70%, flip, duplicate and position either side of the tube erasing the parts that overlap with the join behind the tube, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 18, resize 55%, mirror and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 25% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38, resize 30% and position on the left of the tube, paste it again and resize this copy 40%, mirror and rotate it 30 degrees to the right, position on the right of the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 11, resize 27% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 on the top, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 20%, flip and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments then go back to the merged frame with the tubes in , duplicate it and move the copy so just a little of the frame shows on the right and then erase the rest of it.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text then export on a transparent background as a png.
