Break Me




In this tutorial I am using the art of Anna Marine.
You require a license to use Anna’s art,
you can get yours here.

I am using a beautiful new kit called “Break Me” by
You can get the kit here,
(currently on sale at half price!)
I loved this kit, thank you Cora!

You will also require a mask,
I used Gem’s Mask 206, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness (effects – sharpen – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).
Open a new transparent canvas 600 x 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers, I used pd-pp-04 and copy. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all and paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply your mask. Resize 95%.

Open pd-print-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 75% and move to the bottom of the mask. Duplicate this layer, mirror and flip the duplicate and position at the top of the mask. Apply a drop shadow on each layer vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 70, blur 3.

Open pd-frame-04 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10. Open another of the papers and copy, I used pd-pp-03. Make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, de-select. Go back to the frame layer and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 70, blur 10.

Open pd-moon-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, drag down below the frame and paper layers and place in position. Apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 50, blur 10.

Open pd-flower-01 and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 70% and place in position over the moon. Duplicate this layer, mirror and flip. Position below the first flower and erase any of the stalk which shows at the top. Apply a drop shadow to each layer the same as you did for the frame.

Open pd-leaf-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 65% and rotate 10 degrees to the right. Place in position over the flowers and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd-flower-02, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 75% and position on the left hand side of the frame. Duplicate this layer, mirror and position on the right hand side of the frame.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required and place in position inside the frame. Apply the drop shadow.  Don’t worry about the white flowers that look a bit wrong on the bottom of the tube, we will cover them with the feather.

Open pd-feather-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, mirror, rotate 30 degrees to the left and paste in position, apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd-keyboard and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd-ribbon-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd-hearts-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd-wordart-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60% and place in position.

Check the positioning of your elements. Crop your tag and resize if required, apply your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
