Eggstravaganza





In this tutorial I am using the art of Alicia Mujica.
You need a license to use Alicia’s art,
I purchased mine here.

I used a beautiful, brand new kit called “Happy Bunny Eggs” by

Unfortunately this kit is no longer available but I have left the
tut up for people that already have it or have a substitute.

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 180, here.

Font used is Angelina, here.


**********

Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing, you can check out my Tips and Tricks page for help on this.

Drop shadow I used is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 50, blur 7.



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

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-paper13 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 90%.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-frame4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, mirror and rotate 10 degrees to the right.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.

Open the paper again and copy it, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste into selection. Do not de-select.

Open your tube and mirror it.  Copy and paste it as a new layer, resize as needed and position nicely in the frame.  Invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube, you can now de-select.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame layer.

Open your tube again and undo the mirror, copy and paste it as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, drag down below the main tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element14, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 55% and position along the bottom of your tube.  Erase any of the tube that shows below the element.

Duplicate this last element and mirror it, drag it down below the tube layer and position so a little is showing on the left of the tube, so it looks like the eggs are around her.  Erase any that shows on the right hand side.  Duplicate the original element again, mirror it, drag it down below the tube and position so a little is showing on the right of her, again erase any that shows on the left.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element15 and paste as a new layer. Drag it up so its just below the top row of eggs, resize 80% and rotate 7 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element25 and paste as a new layer.  Reize 45%, rotate also 7 degrees to the right, drag down and tuck it behind the ribbon layer, apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element20 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, drag it down so its just above the fence layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open tk-happybunnyeggs-element 21 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, crop your tag and resize if 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.  I put a nice rounded inner bevel on my font and then used the change to target tool to colour it (check out my Tips and Tricks on the change to target tool).

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here and don’t forget to send me your result so I can add it to the gallery!
