Autumn Days

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 Alex Prihodko (Umbrella tube)
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Autumn by Daniela E.

Font of choice, I am using Bronze Script

Mask: gemsmask189 by Gem's Taggin Scraps

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 950 pixels with a white background

Open frame 8 copy and paste as a new layer resize 75%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 60%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

Now add your elements, I used the following:
 element 143 resize 60% arrange in the bottom left corner
element 130 resize  30% arrange over basket

element 68 resize  65% arrange on bottom right corner
element 74 resize  40% mirror & arrange behind pine cones on bottom right
element 16 resize  30% mirror & arrange behind pumpkins

element 38 resize  65% arrange on bottom in between some of the elements
element 88 resize  30% arrange  between pine cones & pumpkins
element 11 resize  20% arrange bottom center

element 90 arrange on right side, duplicate, mirror, drag back to arrange on the left side of the original
erase what sticks out below the other elements

element 32 resize 50%  mirror & arrange over the left side
element 33 resize  30% arrange at the top of & between the two leafy layers on the left
element 43 resize  35% arrange behind the other elements on the bottom right
element 31 resize  35% arrange behind element 43 on the bottom right
element 87 resize  15% arrange in the leaves on the left
element 56 resize 15% arrange bottom center
element 59 resize  25% arrange in front of umbrella
element 58 resize  25% arrange to the right of the duck

add paper 3 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group
duplicate & merge together

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