Chrissy's Christmas Friends

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 Keith Garvey (Chrissy Cat) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Christmas Darling by Amy Marie 

Font of choice, I am using Skyblue Clues

Plugins: No outside plugins
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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 85%

add the following elements
 tree arrange behind tube, to the right
Santa bag arrange in front of tree to the right
prezzie arrange behind the tube on the left
Moose 2 resize 65% arrange in front of prezzie & tube
lantern 1 resize 65% arrange in front of tube 
Moose 1  arrange behind tree on right
Cat in box resize 50% arrange to the right of lantern
bunny 1 resize 80% arrange behind prezzie

Copy and paste paper 3 just above the white background, add your mask

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
