Christmas 2014

Snaggable tags for this tag in my Fotki album of Christmas snags

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 (Winter 2014 tube) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Bella Caribena called Isabelle Xmas

Font of choice, I am using Dear St. Nick

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 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 97 arrange behind tube

element 96 arrange on bottom right, duplicate, mirror, duplicate and drag to center, merge these 3
duplicate & flip, drag down so it's just above the other group, merge together, drag 
below element 97

element 98 arrange on bottom right
element 78 arrange behind and to the left of element 98
element 89 resize 115% arrange behind fence to the left of your tube

element 31 resize 80% arrange in front of tube, duplicate, drag left
element 95 arrange behind the other trees on the right, duplicate, mirror
element 85 arrange behind tube & other elements in the center

element 55 resize 45% arrange in front of the tube
element 8 resize 65% arrange on far right by fence
element 58 resize 35% arrange on left by fence
element 56 resize 35% arrange in front of the other present

element 12 resize 35% arrange on the left
element 11 resize 28% mirror, arrange on left

Copy and paste paper 10 above the white background
apply your mask & merge group

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