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 Danny Lee (Hot) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Hot Christmas, by Design by Joan which is a matching kit for the Danny Lee tube
Font of choice, I am using Snowflakes
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
copy and paste paper 7 & apply your mask
add these elements:
element 17 resize 65% arrange on right
element 3 resize 65% arrange on left
element 64 arrange behind trees on left, duplicate & drag it to right
element 62 resize 50% arrange on left, duplicate & drag it to the right
element 46 arrange on right, duplicate a couple times, move one to the left and one in the middle on top of the other two. make sure that the two that are by the trees are below the twig layers so it looks like they are coming out of the snow
element 1 resize 45% arrange on left
element 7 resize 40% arrange by log
element 14 resize 65% arrange behind the log & drag the layer below the log layer
element 24 resize 30% arrange on log
element 2 resize 40% arrange on left by trees
crop and resize
