CT Tutorial for "Autumn Rozene" by Ginnibug Designz

**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version.  This tutorial is my own creation.  Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials).  If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **

PTU Tube – “Rozene” by Spazz. It is available at the Spazzd Art store.

PTU Kit - “Autumn Rozene” by Ginnibug Designz.  Made to match the tube and also available at Spazzd Art store.

FTU Mask - "Mask 1 – Cloud Template" by Aeval Amore.  Available for download on my blog, Aeval's Art.

DS – Drop Shadow

Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5

Open Paper 12 in a new canvas.  Double click on the layer to unlock it.

Add the Mask to the canvas and resize if needed so it is the same size as the paper.  Then drag the mask layer below the paper layer.

With the mask layer selected, select all (Ctrl + A) and copy the entire canvas (Ctrl + C).  You will see dashed lines surround the canvas. 

Click on the paper layer to activate it, then turn on quick mask (Press the Q key on your keyboard).  The dashed lines will disappear and that is ok.  Next Paste onto the paper (Ctrl + V) and turn your Quick Mask off (Q again). 

You will now see a dotted outline of the mask on your paper.  Press the button on the bottom of layers side bar that is a rectangle with a circle cut out of it.  The mask will now show. 

Right click on the paper layer and select Convert to Smart Image.  This releases just the mask.  The background layer of the mask will become invisible on its own.

Open a new canvas (Ctrl +N) 700 x 700, transparent background.  This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.

Add the paper/mask combination from above to the working canvas.  Resize to fit the width of the canvas and position at the top of the canvas.  Add DS.

Add Element 73 to the canvas and resize to fit the width of the tag.  Position at the bottom of the tag to create the base of the ground. 

Open the poser in another canvas.  Use the marquee tool and draw a rectangle around the head of the poser.  Copy the poser and switch back to the working canvas.  Select the Mask layer and then paste the poser onto the canvas.  Resize the head to fit in the upper right area of the sky area.  Right click on the layer and select “Blending Options” change the Blend Mode to “Color Burn” and click OK.

Select the water layer to make it the active layer. Add Element 43 to the canvas.  Resize to fit the width of the canvas and position on top of the existing water layer.

Add Element 9 to the canvas.  Resize to fit on the grassy area in the center.  Add DS.

Add Element 33 to the canvas.  Resize to look appropriate next to the cart.  Position in front of the cart on the part of the grass that is extending out into the water.

Add Element 53 to the canvas.  Resize to the same proportions as the other wolf and position it so it looks like the wolf is sleeping in front of the cart.

Add Element 40 to the canvas.  Resize to your liking and position on the grassy area on the far right side.

Add Element 34 to the canvas.  Resize to your liking and position on the grassy area on the left side closest to the front on the edge toward the water so it looks like the cub is looking over at the wolves.  Add DS.

Add the poser to the canvas.  Resize to fit and position her on the right side standing beside the cub.  Add DS.

Voila!  The focal point of your tag is now created.

Now decorate your tag with any of the autumnal elements from the kit.  Resize the elements as you add them to fit the proportions of your tag.  Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety.  In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz.  In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used. 

Here are all the additional elements I used from the bottom layers up.
  • Element 4
  • Element 8
  • Element 113
  • Element 132
  • Element 119
  • Element 76
  • Element 3
  • Element 21
  • Element 36
  • Element 105

Add your license and copyright info to the tag.

Add name and any other text of choice.

Save as PNG and go share with all your friends!
