Dazzling Summer

Dazzling Summer
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 7/25/2012. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the licensed artwork of Alex Prihodko. It is an exclusive tube. You can purchase this tube at PicsForDesgin (PFD).

Supplies Needed:
1 tube of choice
Scrapkit of choice (I'm using FTU Sunset Nights by JustSan's World)
DBV Mask111 by Designs by Vaybs
Font of choice (I'm using Callie Hand)

Open a new canvas 600 x 600 and flood fill white.

New raster layer.

Select with magic wand, copy & paste paper01 into selection, select none, apply mask, duplicate.

Image, canvas size, change to 800 x 800 (we'll resize later).

Back to the background layer, flood fill the empty space with white.

Now click on the duplicate or top layer of the mask.

Copy & Paste frame03 as a new layer, select inside with magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 4, selections, invert, copy & paste paper of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, click on delete, select none, move below frame.

Now it's time to add your tube so copy & paste that below the frame, resize if needed, position to your liking, duplicate, move the duplicate layer above the frame and hide it for now.

Select inside the frame with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 4, selections, invert, delete on the original tube layer, select none, add a subtle drop shadow if you wish.

Add element14 (leaves) as a new layer, place above the top mask layer and to the right, add subtle drop shadow, duplicate, mirror.

Now unhide your duplicate tube layer.

Add any elements or accessories you'd like, place to the left of the frame.

I used
element01 (flower)
element31 (slice)
element30 (glass)
element37 (glasses)
element03 (peach flower)
element10 (tree)

Resize if you'd prefer and arrange to your liking.

Now back on duplicate tube layer, use the eraser to remove any portion of the tube that's not needed, please refer to my tag if needed.

Once you've finished that you can hide the background layer if you wish to save as a transparent png image.

Crop the finished tag down to your liking, resize if needed.

Add copyright/licensing info. Don't forget to save a blank.

Add your name or text and you're ready to save.
