Have a Gorjuss Day



Have a Gorjuss Day by K. Wellman 09
This tutorial was written by me, K. Wellman on September 30, 2009
and is ©Kwellman Designs and any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Needed:  I used images of Suzanne Woolcott.  You have to have
a license to use her work.  You can obtain a license at her website HERE

Template #85  by Melissaz Creationz.  You can get it at her blog HERE

FTU Scrapkit Fall Delight by Scrappity Scrap.  You can download her kit HERE

Lets Get Started..

Open your template.  Shift D. to Duplicate.  Go to image and rotate right.
Delete the credit layer and the stars layers.

Use pick tool and move circle layer to the left. 

Open paper 23.  Using magic wand click on circle layer in your template.  Go
back to paper and drag/drop as new layer on your tag.  Or you can go to edit/copy
and back to edit/paste as new layer. 
Go to selections, invert, Hit delete key on your keyboard.  Go to Selections, Select None.

Delete original circle layer. 

Repeat this step with papers of choice until your template is filled deleting original layers as you go.

Give all layers a drop shadow.  I used 2,2, 50 & 5 with color black.

Open element 11 and go to image, resize and resize 50%.  Drag/Drop as new layer above circle layer.
Use pick tool to free rotate and move to the left.  right click and duplicate. Mirror image and move back to left blending with first one and resize with pick tool to suit yourself.

Add your images of choice.  Place them above the background layer but below the frame layer.  Use eraser tool to delete unwanted parts.

Add other elements of choices and give all a drop shadow. 

Add wording of choice.  The font I used was LittleLordFontLeroy

Add credits and Merge Visible.  Save as PNG file. 

If you want the wording to animate continue....

Before merging, or if you have merged go and undo so all your layers
are available.  Go to wording layer and Selections, Select all, Selections, Float, Selections Defloat.

Now merge visible.  right click and duplicate 2 times.

Go to first layer.  Go to Adjust, Add/Remove Noise, Add Noise

Use these settings..Random, Monocrome, 20, ok

Go to 2nd layer and repeat, changing number to 30.  and 3rd layer repeat changing number to 40.

Save as psp animation shop file.

Open animation shop, open the file you just save.  View animation and save as whatever you want to name it.

I hope you have enjoyed my tut..I would love to hear from you.   You can email me at mschowwv@yahoo.com..

5. Repeat these steps until all layers of template are filled and have drop shadow added.

6. I erased the apple.

7. Open your kit and open each element you want added to your tag. Once opened, you can simply drag and drop onto your tag as a new layer.
