Piano Fairy

Piano Fairy

This tutorial was written by Jenny on 6-21-2009. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Katerina Koukiotis. I purchased this tube during AMI's BCA Promo so it is no longer available at their site but you can use any tube of your choice. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc.
Please visit her site link above for more info on licensing.

Supplies Needed:
1 Tube of choice (a sitting or laying down tube works best)
Just Another Lullaby PTU Scrapkit by Just A Girl's Designs
(this kit was part of a 3 day freebie at Twilight Scraps so some of you may have it as a freebie)
WSL_Mask84 by Weescotslass
2 Fonts of choice (I'm using KF Puff font and A&S Bone)

Open a new canvas 500 x 250. Flood fill white.

New Raster Layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste BKG1 into selection,select none, apply mask.

Using the KF Puff Font with background color set at black,size 65 no stroke, type out the name you want, this works best if you have atleast 2 words but can be done with one.
Convert to raster layer.

Using the magic wand, select inside each letter, selections,modify, expand 1, copy & paste BKG3 as a new layer, resize 75%, selections, invert,delete on paper layer, select none, move below font and add drop shadow to the font. Do not merge!

Copy & Paste clouds on string as a new layer, resize 55% and place above mask layer, add drop shadow.

Copy & Paste flowers1 as a new layer, resize 65%, add drop shadow, duplicate, mirror.

Copy & Paste Turtle2 as a new layer, resize to your liking and place atop one of the letters (see my tag).

Copy & Paste keyboard as a new layer, resize 75%, add drop shadow, place between the font you typed out and the filling (see my tag), use the eraser to take away any excess sticking out from the letters.

Copy & Paste tube of choice, resize to liking, add drop shadow and place next to the keyboard.
If you notice I placed mine so that it looks like the baby is playing the keyboard. ;)
If you want to add a name, do so now and place at the bottom of the saying.

Add copyright info, merge visible and you're done.
