postheadericon The Pumpkin Patch 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 KatNKDA which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through her store here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU scrap kit by KatNKDA called "It's Pumpkin Time" which you can purchase through her store here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved WSL_Mask355 used which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. I have used Dead Secretary

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white.

Copy and paste background 2 and resize 50%. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask355, invert transparency unchecked. Merge group.

Duplicate the layer twice and rename your layers Lightning 1, 2 and 3. Select your first layer and apply lightning with the following settings.



Pls note depending on where you want your lightning start, you will see on the preview of where the lightning will be applied, there is 2 lil circles with an X in them. You may move these about so that you can place where your lightning will start and finish. I usually like to position a lil inside my image that way it doesn't go over the edge of it.

Select your 2nd lightning layer and apply effect again hitting random seed.

Select your last lightning layer and apply effect again hitting random seed again. Select none. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice and lightning portions of this tut.

Copy and paste Element 26, resize 30% & drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Position on the left hand side. Copy and paste Element 25, resize 30% twice & drop shadow. Position standing on one of the branches.

Copy and paste Element 2, resize 40% twice and drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 6, resize 40% twice & drop shadow. Position at the base of your tree. Copy and paste Element 1, resize 40% twice & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner.

Copy and paste the pumpkin house included with your cat tubes, resize 40% twice & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 4, resize 40% twice, mirror & drop shadow. Position next to your pumpkin house tube.

Copy and paste your cat tube, resize 35% twice, mirror & drop shadow. Position in front of your pumpkins.

Copy and paste Element 27, resize 40% twice & drop shadow. Position top right hand side at the top of the sun.

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Dead Secretary Size 48 black and then added a size 4 medium color #ffa127 gradient glow & drop shadow.

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

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

You may want to view your animation and decide if you wish to slow down the speed of your lightning. To do this Edit/Select All and then animation/frame properties. I have set mine for 30.

Save as a gif.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Pls feel free to experiment and use my tutorial as a guide.
