October



For this tutorial you will need a close up tube and part body tube.
I am using the art of Screaming Demons.
You require a license to use Screaming’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using an awesome kit “October” by
You can get the kit here.
I love this kit, thank you Cora.

You will also require a mask,
I used Insatiable Dreams mask 495, here.

Font used is Sabotage,
a free font, you can get it 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).

Drop shadow used throughout is 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 pd-pp05. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open pd-frame-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the left.

Open pd-pp-09 and copy. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.  Make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection. Do not de-select.

Open your tube, duplicate and close the original. Mirror the close up tube, copy and paste as a new layer on your canvas. Position nicely inside the frame, invert the selection and delete the excess tube, lower the opacity to around 35. Apply the drop shadow to the frame layer.

Open pd-print-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%, drag down below the frame, tube and paper layers and position to the left.

Open pd-flower-03 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd-flower-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd-flower-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd-string, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 75%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.

Open your body tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open pd-ribbon-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open pd-candles and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Crop your tag (the candle element has a large blur around it, be careful not to crop into it and make a sharp edge) and resize as required.  Add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
