postheadericon Color Me Autumn Tut

 Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and
have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies & Filters :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Danielle Pioli which you must have a license to use. Please do not use this work without purchasing through Mistaken Art here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous FTU kit from Vix called Autumn Song, which is available on her blog here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used a great fall word art from Cupcake Sprinkles, which is available on her blog here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask337 Weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. I am using Gwendolyn Bold.

Filters I have used : Xenofex 2/Constellation & Eye Candy 4/Gradient Glow (both optional)

Let's get started !

Open your mask in PSP. New image 600x600 and floofill with white.

Copy and paste Paper 2, new mask layer from image, WSL_Mask337, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. 
Duplicate twice and rename layers Mask 1, Mask 2 & Mask 3. On your first mask layer apply the following Constellation :

Apply the same Constellation to your next mask layer and hit random once. Apply again to your last mask layer hitting random twice. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice.
Copy and paste Wrapped frame 1 and using your magic wand (or selection tool), select all the areas in the middle of your frames and selections/modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 6, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect.
Copy and paste your tube, resize 85% and hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

I have merged down my frame, tube and frame background layers. You can then reposition if necessary. 

Copy and paste Ribbon 2, resize 85% and drop shadow. Position top left hand side. 

Copy and paste Bow 2, resize 85% and drop shadow. Position just above your ribbon.

Copy and paste Moon and Stars, drop shadow and mirror. Position just a lil above your ribbon/bow.

Copy and paste Petals, image flip/mirror and drop shadow. Position bottom right hand side.  Layer duplicate and mirror. Position this petal layer on the left hand side and below your frame layers.

Copy and paste Leaf 1 and drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner just above your petals. Layer duplicate and mirror. Position top right hand corner. Trim the tail from your leaf if it covers into your frame/tube.

Copy and paste Butterfly 1, drop shadow and position bottom right corner above your leaf layer.

Copy and paste Ribbon 3, drop shadow and postiong bottom right corner below your frame layers.

Copy and paste Word art, resize 35% and position top right hand corner. I added a gradient glow color #ebd2b6 size 3 fat and drop shadow.
At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Gwendolyn Bold color #66562a size 72 with the same gradient glow and drop shadow as the word art.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Mask Layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Mask Layer 1 and open Mask Layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Close off Mask Layer 2 and open Mask Layer 3, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Save as a gif.
