Mid Summer Day Dream

Mid Summer Day Dream

This tutorial was written by Jenny on September 10,2008. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using Artwork ©Jennifer Janesko. The image I am using is for example ONLY. Anyone wishing to use the same image MUST purchase it from C.I.L.M. and have proper license from C.I.L.M. for the usage of that tube/image.

Please check her site above for more licensing info as this artist is no longer licensed to CILM due to the closing.

I'm dedicating this tut to Sophisticat Simone. She sponsored an outstanding contest at Sblended inwhich I won 3 tubes from CILM (of course I picked Jennifer Janesko) lol. Thanks Simone!

Also a huge thank you to Sharon Becker who gifted me this wonderful elegance scrapkit of hers. Beautiful colors Sharon!

*please note that my tutorials are not to be sold,copied or profited from in any way.

What you'll need:

1 Close Up Tube of choice
Elegance PTU Scrapkit by Sharon Becker (or scrapkit of your choice)
Font of choice (I'm using Hyrule)
Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Plugin (optional, used to make the crumpled paper look)

On to the tut

Open a new canvas 600x600. Flood fill white.

New raster layer, flood fill with a color that compliments your tube,resize by 80%,add a drop shadow of choice, effects, alien skin xenofex2, crumple with these settings:

Crumple Size: 33.90
Crumple Force:50
Distort Image checked
Highlight Brightness:19.47
Highlight Size:51.20
Highlight Color: white
Light Boost:50
Random Seed:8139

You don't have to use this plugin, you can skip this step and leave all the plugin steps out ;)

Copy and paste a paper of choice from the elegance kit, add a drop shadow, resize (I resized by 55%).

Copy and paste the yellow berry bush, resize, add a drop shadow, layers duplicate,image, mirror,flip.

Copy and paste frame 03 as a new layer, resize to your liking, copy and paste paper of choice, resize and move below frame layer. Copy and paste tube of choice, resize if needed,add drop shadow.
Use your eraser to take off any excess. X out all layers except your frame,tube and paper that is behind the tube, merge visable.
Layers,duplicate, on your original layer go to image,rotate,25,left.
Apply xenofex plugin with same settings as above. Layers,duplicate,image,mirror.
On the top frame layer you can then add flowers or ribbons if you choose.
Add your copyright layer and merge all layers. Your tag is finished. Congrats!
