Magical Moments



In this tutorial I used the beautiful art of Suzanne Woolcott.
You need a license to use Suzanne’s art, you can get yours here.

I used Sky Scraps part of the Bunny Trail mini store collab.
I really loved this kit, its beautiful!
You can get it here.
Thank you Marie!

You will also need a mask, I used Monti’s circle mask, here.

I used the front 5thGrader, you can get it here.



As always, you will need to sharpen the elements after resizing, for more information see my Tricks and Tips page.

Drop shadow used is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



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

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-pp1 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%, duplicate and merge the duplicate down onto the original layer.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E1, paste as a new layer and resize 45%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame layer and flood fill with a pale yellow or green colour, I used #ebeeca.  Do not de-select.

Open your tube, mirror it and 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.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 55.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E6 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and mirror, drag down below the frame, tube and paper layers and place in position, apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E3, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 50%, place in position along the top of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position along the bottom of the frame and apply the drop shadow. 

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E20 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytale-E12 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E19 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, drag down below E12, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube, undo the mirror, copy and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  My tube covered part of the bunny on E20 so I erased part of it to bring the bunny to the top.  The best way to do this is to zoom in, increasing your canvas size to around 150, then lower the opacity of the tube so you can see the bunny below it and erase the parts that are covering it. 

 Open SkyScraps_Bunnytrail-E17 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, position it on the peg on E3 and do the same thing there, erasing part so it looks like its below the peg.

Open SkyScraps-Bunnytrail-E21 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag down below the tube and place in position behind her.

 Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are happy, crop your tag, 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 hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  I would, as always, love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
