Jolly Christmas


Jolly Christmas
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 12-12-2010. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Sally Gilroy. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through MyTagArt.
You can now purchase her tubes through Scraps N Crap.

This tut allows for animation although the preview is not animated.

Supplies Needed:
Tubes of choice
Scrapkit of choice (I'm using Holly Jolly Christmas by Shal's World available for purchase HERE)
ChristmasTemplate4-Kelly'sKreations'09 HERE
WSL_Mask302 by Weescotslass
Font of choice (I'm using Santa's Sleigh)

Animation Shop (optional)
MuRa's Meister Copies (optional)
VDL Adrenaline (optional)

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

Select bkg and flood fill white, new raster layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste Paper 3 into selection, select none, apply mask.

Select MainFill, select each dark color with magic wand, copy & paste Paper 14 as a new layer, selections, invert, delete, select none.

Use the change to target brush to recolor the rest.

Select main outline, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste Paper 17 as a new layer, resize 110, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original, back on new layer, apply noise and drop shadow of choice.

Select BlindFill, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste Paper 16 as a new layer, resize 120, selections, invert, delete,hide original.

Select Rectoutline, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with color of choice, select none, apply noise, drop shadow, hide original.

Select treefill, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste Paper 5 as a new layer, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Add drop shadow to treeoutline.

Hide Text.

Copy & Paste tube of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, add drop shadow, place to the right as I did Santa.

I'm using several different tubes from the same artist so go ahead and add those if you're doing the same and arrange to your liking.

Add decorations to the tree.

Hide Xmas Spray.

Copy & Paste Ribbon Wrap as a new layer, resize 50% and adorn the window area with it, add drop shadow.

Copy & Paste string of bulbs and adorn the window or fireplace with them, deleting the ends so they don't hang over.

Copy & Paste stocking of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking and hang on the fireplace or window scene.

Copy & Paste presents of choice as a new layer, resizing as needed and arrange beneath the tree.

Copy & Paste Peppermint Stick as a new layer, place behind your main tube (see my tag).

Using a flower arrangement of choice, copy & paste as a new layer, resize to your liking, apply MuRa's Meister Copies encircle with default settings, place above mask layer, top left corner, resize 75%, duplicate, mirror, flip, use your selection tool to select inside the window and delete both layers of arrangements that may be sticking through, select none.

If you do not plan to animate then now is the time to resize the canvas, add copyright info and text and then you're ready to save.

If you'd like to animate:
Resize your canvas, do NOT merge any of the layers, add copyright layer, go back and sharpen any tube layers that may need it.

Use the selection tool to select the window, new raster layer, apply VDL Adrenaline with these settings:

select none, copy merged, paste into animation shop, back to PSP, undo, apply again changing random seed to 50, copy merged, paste after in animation shop, repeat again changing random seed to 100.

You should now have 3 layers.

Edit, select all, animation, frame properties, change this to 25 or whatever you'd like.

Now you're ready to save.

Thank you for trying my tutorial. I'd love to see your results. Please leave some love in my C-Box.
