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 (Eskimo) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Eskimo Xmas by DRAN Designs
Font of choice, I am using Rough Brush Script
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
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
Add the following:
element 4 arrange towards the top right
element 12 resize 50% arrange on left
Copy and paste your tube, resize 50% place in the center
element 45 resize 50% arrange on right
element 43 resize 35% arrange on left by tube & igloo
element 41 resize 35% arrange on right, behind the trees layer
element 16 resize 25% arrange in her hand, take the eraser set on 3 and erase where it goes over her thumb
add paper 4 above the white background
apply your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
