This tutorial was created using Photoshop Elements 5.
Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and not intentional. Please do not post this tutorial in part or whole anywhere else, but instead link back to my blog.
It is assumed that you will have a good working knowledge of Photoshop Elements.
*Reminder, when I state, resize, it means to decrease the size. It is a direct violation of TOU to increase the size of a tube from it's original size.
The beautiful tube I am using is by Helena Reis- All I Can Give U, you need a license to use it. The very versatile kit is Gothic Inspirations' "Ambivalence". You will find both at Digital Chaos. Don't forget to look around at all the other wonderful things offered there ;)
As always, this tutorial is meant as a guide only.
Let's get started....
mask by me, it can be found on my blog here
font used A&S Snapper Script
1. Open a new document, Ctrl + N, 700x700 pixels. We will resize everything at the end
2. Add window element and tube. Position tube as seen in my example. I applied a drop shadow to the tube and an outer glow. These are the settings I used- Outer Glow-#fffff, Size 8px, Opacity 16%
3. Begin adding elements, use my example as a guide.
Resize as needed. Apply a drop shadow to each element.
4. Add paper13 and send to back layer. Select the inside of the window element with the magic wand, expand selection by 16px. Create a new layer with this selection via copy.
5. Apply the mask, using Paper13
6. Resize and crop to desired size.
7. Last add your copyright info and license number and name or phrase. This should be done last because any resizing can cause the copyright to become hard to read.
Now save as a .png and you are done.
Now, here are some free snags as well. As always click on image to view at full size!
