Summer Loving


Supplies Needed:
Image of choice, Im using the awesome artwork of Keith Garvey which you can purchase here
Mask#55 By Rachel @ Enchanted By Darkness here
Scenic Image of choice, mine is by Mike Mackinven courtesy of stock xchng here
Scrapkit FTU - Happy Time By Bea @ Bea Creations here

Ok Lets Go.

Open a new Image 600x600 pixels white, open your scenic image of choice and resize to 600x600 pixels, edit copy, paste as a new layer, Layers Load/Save Mask - Load Mask From Disk - EBDMask55, Layers Merge-Merge Group. Duplicate this layer till you have the effect and transparency you prefer. Close off your background layer, and merge visible the scenic mask layers. Re-open your white background layer.

Open frame 2 from the kit, edit-copy, paste as a new layer, I resized by 85%, Using your magic wand select inside the four frames, you may need to hold down your "Shift" key, to select all four, Selections - Modify - Expand by 3, Open paper of choice, I used paper 6, Image-Resize 600x600 pixels, edit-copy, paste as a new layer, Selections-Invert, hit delete, Selections-Select None. In your layer palette move this layer down below your frames.

If you wish to add any images to the frames, select inside the frame you wish to add an image to, Selections - Modify - Expand by 3, open image of choice, edit-copy, paste as a new layer, position and resize to how you think looks best, Selections-Invert, hit delete, Selections-Select None. If you wish to change the colour like I have done, either in your layer palette set your Blend Mode to Luminence Legacy or using Adjust - Hue & Saturation - Colorize, I changed mine to Hue-3 Saturation-184.

Open your main image of choice, edit-copy, paste as a new layer, position and resize if necessary, I resized mine by 90%, add a dropshadow of choice, I used 5-5-55-14.85 Black.

Add any other elements of choice from the kit.

Add your name and copyright.

Save as .png or .jpg however you prefer.

I hope you found this tut easy to follow.
I would love to see your results.
Luv Jo.xx.
