Animation Shop
Eye Candy 4 > Gradient Glow

Scrapkit By Gina's Gems Scraps @ Scraps With Atittude

Pictures/Tube of Choice
. (DO NOT use the same photo's I did they are my own personal photo's)
Font : 2 Moulin Rouge DNA Size 72 Color (#861982)
Sweetheart Script-Limited Size 35 Color (#c96ec6)


Elements Used :

Rock & Grass
Firefly Lights
Fence
Curled Grass & Lantern
Charming Wrap 2
Butterfly 2
Blue Bells 2

Lets Begin :

Open a new 800x650 transparent image.

First we are going to begin by making our frames, for this tag I needed just white frames so I decided to make my own. 
Click on your Preshape tool and select your Rectangle tool, up top at your settings set your Width to 8.00, make sure Anti -Alias is checked, and your Meter limit is set to 15.
In your materials pallet, make your Foreground color White (#ffffff) and close of your Background color.
Now draw out your frame by left clicking your mouse and holding it while you move your mouse to make the frame, you will see the outline as you move your mouse. When you have the size you want your frames to me let go of your left mouse button. (You don't want your frames to small or to big, so a nice medium size is good.

Once you have your frame made, go to your layers pallet and right click on your frame layer, then click Convert to raster layer. Then go to Image, click on Free Rotate, set your settings to Left 20.00. click ok.
Now back in your layers pallet, click on your frame layer, right click, then click duplicate. On your duplicated layer go to Image, then click Mirror. This will put your second frame on the right side of your canvas, you can adjust it as needed.

Now get your magic wand, make sure in your layers pallet you are on the original frame layer, (The one to the left) and click inside your frame, then make a new raster layer.

Now open your picture or tube of choice , copy & paste it "INTO Selection". Now in your layers pallet move your picture/tube layer below your frame layer. On your picture layer go to Adjust, click on Sharpness, then click Sharpen, and then give your frame a drop shadow. (To add a drop shadow go to Effects, Then click on 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow.)

Now follow the exact same steps above to put your second picture/tube  into the other frame.

Once you have your photo's/tubes in place, 

Open your Blue Bells 2 element, copy & paste as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 50%, now using your move tool move your Blue Bells 2 element to the left frame, then go to Image, click on Free Rotate, set your setting to Left 20.00. Then once you have it where you want it, go to your layers pallet, make sure you are on your Blue Bells 2 layer, right click, click duplicate then go to Image, click on Mirror, and then use your move tool to position it exactly where you want it.

Open your Fence element, copy & paste as a new layer on to your canvas, now position it in the center of your canvas. Give it a slight drop shadow.

Open your Rock & Grass element, copy & paste it as a new image, re-size it to 40%, then position so that it is at the left end of your fence. Now in your layers pallet make sure your on your Rock & Grass element , right click, then click duplicate. On the duplicated layer go to Image, then click Mirror. Use your move tool to position it at the right side of your fence.

Now open your Curled Grass & Lantern element, copy & paste as a new layer, re-size it to 70%, then again to 80%.Using your move tool position it to the left side of your fence, but so that it is even with the end of the fence. Go to your layers pallet on your Curled Grass & Lantern layer, right click, click duplicate, then go to image click on Mirror, and then using your move tool position your duplicated Curled Grass & Lantern element to the right so they are side by side. On both of your Curled Grass & Lantern layers go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen. Now add a drop shadow to both layers.

Now open your Butterfly 2 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 25%, position it where you would like it, I positioned mine on the Curled Grass & Lantern element. Once you have it where you want it, go to your layers pallet, right click on your Butterfly 2 element, and duplicate it, use your move tool and position it where you want it. You may also go to Image, click Mirror to have it turned a different way if you so desire. I duplicated mine 3 times for a total of 4 butterflies, and positioned them around the Curled Grass & Lantern elements. Once you have them where you want them, go back to your layers pallet, click on your top Butterfly 2 duplicated layer, then right click, click Merge ,then click Merge Down. Do this for all of the Butterfly 2 element layers until they become on layer. This will be what we will animated shortly. :-) Rename this layer Butterflies.
Now lets open our  Firefly Lights, copy & paste them as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size them to 50%, position to the left side of your tag, then go to your layers pallet, and click on your Fireflies Lights if you aren't already on it, then right click, click duplicate, then on your duplicated layer go to Image, and click Mirror. Use your move tool if you need to to position it where you want it.

Now open your Charming Wrap 2 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, use your "Pick" tool and adjust your Charming Wrap 2 to the edges of your fence. So that it looks like it is a wrapped package :-)

Now lets add our name & copyright/credit information.

Once you have your name where you want it, go to your layers pallet, make sure you have selected your name layer, right click, click convert to raster layer, then go to Effects, scroll down to your plug-ins, click Eye Candy 4, then click Gradient Glow. Put your settings where you would like them and click ok.

Now if you want the extra wording like what I used, this is where I used the Sweetheart Script-Limited font, just type out what you want it to say, then convert to raster layer like we did above, then go to Effects, scroll down to your Plug-ins and go to Eye Candy 4 > Gradient Glow, and set it to your liking and click ok.

Give both your name & any other wording (other than your copyright info) a drop shadow.

**If you do not wish to animate you must crop your tag to get rid of any extra canvas that we did not use, and then in your layers pallet, right click on any layer, click Merge, then click Merge Visible. Make sure your layers are where they need to be, otherwise when you merge them something might end up in the wrong place** .
Save your tag as png.

If you wish to animate, lets continue :

Open your Animation Shop.

Then go back to your PSP

Now in your layers pallet, click on your Butterflies layer that we renamed earlier, go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise. Change your settings to Uniform , 30 and Monochrome is checked then click ok.

Now go to Edit, click "Copy Special" then on slide out menu click "Copy Merged".

Now go to your Animatoin Shop, right click and then click "Paste As New Animation".

Now go back to your PSP, click your undo button one time, then go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise, Only this time only change your noise setting to 35. Click Ok.

Then go to Edit, click "Copy Special" then on the slide out menu click "Copy Merged"
Now go to your Animation Shop, right click on the first frame we just put there, click "Paste" then click "After Current Frame"

Now go back to your PSP,  click your undo button one time, then go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, click Add Noise, then this time only change your noise setting to 40. Click Ok.

Go to your Animation Shop one more time, click on your second frame then right click on that same frame, click "Paste" then click "After Current Frame".

Now you want to View Animation, and if you are happy with it, all we need to do is crop our tag and save it!

So select your crop tool in Animation Shop, crop out any extra canvas that we did not use, be sure not to crop to close to your tag as you dont want to cut off elements or cut off your drop shadows.

Once you have your tag cropped you might want to re-size it, depending on where you are going to use it. If you need to re-size it in Animation Shop, go to Shift & s on your keyboard, then your re-size screen will open up, set it to where you need it then click ok.
Now save your tag as a gif file & your done!!
