postheadericon First Snowflake 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 :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Zlata_M which you must have a license to use. Please do not use this work without purchasing through The PSP Project here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used one of my own PTU Kit "Cordelia's Chilly Christmas" which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask84 which can be downloaded here.

Word art of choice .. I have used word art by Linda's Place which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Snowcap

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 15. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask84, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group.

Repeat with Paper 13 & mask WSL_Mask38. Resize 105%, adjust/add remove noise/add noise/uniform monochrome checked/40%.

Copy and paste Frame 10 & resize 75%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 5, copy and paste Paper 13 below your frame layer, selections invert, hit delete & select none. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Merge down your frame layer with it's background layer.

Layer duplicate, resize 50% & rotate right 25. Position bottom right hand corner. Layer duplicate, mirror & resize 65%. Position top left hand side of your big star frame.

Copy and paste Element 20, resize 75% & drop shadow. Repeat with Element 9. Copy and paste Element 12, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner. 

Copy and paste Ribbon/Bow 3, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position towards the bottom on the right hand side. Repeat with Ribbon/Bow 5, resizing 50% & mirror. Position bottom left hand corner.

Copy and paste your tube, resize as necessary & drop shadow. Copy and paste String 5, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position towards the bottom.

Copy and paste Poinsettia 3, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner. Repeat with Poinsettia 5.

Copy and paste Ornament 4, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position hanging from the point of your large star on the left hand side. Layer duplicate & mirror.

Copy and paste Flake 10, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner and drag this layer to just above your mask layer.

Copy and paste Word art & resize 35% twice. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from black to #352b74. I then added a size 4 fat white gradient glow. Select all/float/defloat/invert & adjust/add remove noise/add noise/random & monochrome checked/75%. Select none and drop shadow. Position top left hand corner.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright and name on your tag. I have used Snowcap, Size 60, color #352b74 and then added the same gradient glow, noise and drop shadow as with the word art.

Save and you are done.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.
