Fall Harvest



For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Alicia Mujica. This tube is from one of her special edition 3 packs, which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Harvest Blessing by Graphics of Fantasy 

Font of choice, I am using MF Summertime

Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.



Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.


Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 950 x 950 pixels with a white background

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 45%

Add the following elements:
element 17 arrange behind & to the left of your tube

element 16 arrange behind the tube so that the top of it is just showing over the top of element 17
then duplicate and drag down & right, duplicate again and drag down
merge the 3 layers together

element 10 arrange behind the tube & to the right
element 85 arrange in front of your tube at the bottom
element 80 resize  55% arrange on bottom left corner

element 71 arrange behind fountain on left side
element 87 resize  55% arrange on bottom right corner

element 76 resize  80% arrange on bottom left corner
element 1 resize  80% arrange across top of brick wall
element 69 resize  75% arrange on left side of fountain wall, below the pumpkin sign
