Thank you for stopping by on my blog, I hope you find something here that pleases you. If you do please feel free to leave a comment, either here or in my 4shared account. As an artist I would love to know if you like my offerings or if there is something you are looking for. I read each comment that is left and enjoy hearing from you=]
It has come to my attention that 4shared has changed their TOU for link sharing. I have found that you will now be asked to Login or Create an Account in order to download a file. Yes I know it is free to sign up but I don't think you should have to do that in order to get a freebie. So I will start to change the links over to and I can only hope that they will not do this as well.

New Tut- Free kit and Tube @Digital Chaos

I have a new tutorial today, it using a FREE scrap kit and FREE tube by Dark Yarrow at Digital Chaos. If you didn't know before, there are a bunch of free tubes and kits as well as images and timelines to be found in the store. You will need to register and use your license number for tubes and images same as paid, but hey that ain't hard!

As always click on image to view at full size!

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 Dark Yarrow- Ravens Sorrow, you need a license to use it. The very versatile kit is by Dark Yarrow "Sapphire" . 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....

Elements used-
Flower07 x2
Heart01 x3

mask by Wee Scots Lass Creations WSL_Mask254
font used  CK Maternal

 1. Open a new document, Ctrl + N, 700x700 pixels.

We will resize everything at the end

2. Add Frame04 and tube. Position tube as seen in my example. Make a duplicate copy of the tube and flip it for a mirror image. Place behind the frame. Change the blending mode to Hard Light, 100% Opacity

3. Now, back to the first tube placed, I used the selection tool to help erase certain parts of the tube to fit the frame, this is my preference but you can also opt to put it behind the frame as well.

4. Place Paper14 and make sure it is behind all elements already added. Using selection tool, select the inside of each frame opening. Be sure to get all of the smaller openings created by the string on the frame (you'll know if you missed any after this step is completed). Now, making sure your Paper14 layer is active, go to Select- Modify- Expand by 3 pixels. Next create a new layer via copy. Hide the original Paper14 layer.

5. Begin adding elements, use my example as a guide. Resize as needed. Apply a drop shadow to each element if needed.

6. Some elements are flipped horizontally, you should adjust them to suit your taste.

7. Apply the mask WSL_Mask254 using Paper03.

8. Add the phrase or one of your choice. I used a white color with a black stroke of 2px and bevel up of 5px. Drop shadow to taste. The font is at 72pt but I did stretch it horizonatlly to fit across the frame

9. Resize and crop to desired size.

10. 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.
