A Mother's Love


A Mother's Love
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 4-6-2010. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Joanne Schempp. You need a license to use her artwork. I am licensed through MyTagArt.
You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.

Supplies Needed:
1 Tube and 2 images of choice
Hippo on My Head PTU Scrapkit by Pimp'd Designz (or Scrapkit of choice)
LMC-TagTemplates-ByDaira-Spring!-SpringSprung HERE
UFMask61 by Urban Fairytale
2 Fonts of choice (I'm using Scrap Script and Scrap Cursive)

Open template, hide credits and wordart, shift d to duplicate, close original.

Image, canvas size, 650x650, flood fill the rest of the Raster 17 layer with white.

New raster layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste paper of choice into selection, select none, apply mask.

You'll need atleast 5 more different papers of choice, go ahead and open those and resize them if they are full sized papers.

Copy & Paste doodle of choice as a new layer, place upward, resize if needed, duplicate, flip, mirror.

Select Black Circle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste paper of choice as a new layer, selections, invert,delete, select none, hide original.

Repeat on Dark Gray Circle, Light Gray Circle, Gray Circle and Green Circle, changing the paper each time.

Select Big Flower, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste any paper of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, selections, invert,delete, select none, hide original.

Copy & Paste a circle frame of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, add drop shadow, see my tag for placement, this layer should be below the new Big Flower layer.

Copy & Paste tube of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, do not add a drop shadow yet, if you want the head to stick out like mine does then you will need to use your selection tool to select that part of the tube, right click, promote selection to layer, move to top, select none, apply a subtle drop shadow to the original tube layer.

Copy & Paste rainbow of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, move above the tube layer and upward.

Select heart leaves, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste another paper of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, it's best to use several different papers so that it layers the flower nicely, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Select Smaller Flowers, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with a color of choice, select none, hide original.

Select Small Flower, repeat same as heart leaves, changing the paper again.

Copy & Paste flower of choice as a new layer, place atop the small flower, resize to your liking, add drop shadow.

Copy & Paste another flower of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking, place to the left of the canvas, see my tag.

Now you can copy & paste a frame of choice, resizing to your liking, place in the bottom left corner of the template.

Copy & Paste image 1 of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking, place below frame, add drop shadow to the frame, use the selection tool to remove any excess image sticking out from the frame.

Duplicate the frame layer only, resize by about 10% less, copy & paste another image of choice and follow the same steps above for the duplicate frame placing it in the upper right corner.

Copy & Paste bow of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking and place upon frame, if the bow is longer (like the one I'm using) you'll need to make sure to bring the promoted layer of the tube up above it as I did.

I adorned the bottom frame with a beautiful heart found in the scrapkit I'm using, you may use something similar or the same thing if you have this kit.

New Raster layer.

Use the Preset Ellipse tool and draw out a circle in the middle of your canvas, as you can see there's an opened up spot on the right side of the canvas, this is where we want to put the text first, mirror the preset shape, new raster layer, type out your text, convert to raster layer, hide preset layer, duplicate text, mirror, flip.

On each layer of the text, selections, select all, float, defloat, modify, expand 2, new raster layer, flood fill with color of choice, move below text, select none, add drop shadow.


Resize canvas if you'd like.

Add copyright info and any text you'd like. I did the same thing with my name as I did with the text on the sides except I used a different font (both are listed by name above in my supplies).

Now you're ready to save your creation.

Thank you for trying my tutorial. I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to leave some love in my C-Box. I'd also love to see your creations!
