Noel Angel

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Alicia Mujica (tube is a free gift for December 2014 when you purchase 4 euros or more in her store) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Noel, by BLT Dezignz 

Font of choice, I am using Scriptina

Plugins: No outside plugins

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 frame 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 11 copy and paste as a new layer 
click delete on your keyboard

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 50%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

Now add your elements:
foliage 1 resize 45% arrange on bottom right
cluster  resize 45% arrange to the left of the other element
 birdhouse resize 45% arrange between the cluster & foilage
angel  resize 45% arrange on right side
flower resize 40% rotate left 35 arrange behind birdhouse
christmas tree resize 45% arrange on left side
snowflake 1 resize 45% arrange on left side below other elements
ornaments 2 resize 35% arrange on bottom left
 birds resize 35% arrange in front of birdhouse

add paper 5 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group
duplicate several times and merge all the mask layers together
so it will be darker and show up better
resize it 105%

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