♥Spring Day♥ PTU

Here is what we are going to make :
 **Please keep in mind that my tutorials are made using my own Ditzy noggin, any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.**
~This tutorial is animated~
Supplies needed :
Scrapkit Spring Day PTU By Creative Scraps By Crystal
Font Used : Kayleigh Size 125 Pixels (Color # 449ca7)
Plug-in : Eye Candy 5 Impact > Gradient Glow

Kit Elements Used :
Frame 5
Paper 7
Hill 2
Little Girl & Little Girl 2
Pond
Tree 1
Mushroom 2
House
Fireflies
Vines
Bow 2
Bird


Lets begin :
(Keep in mind it is always good to label each layer in your layer pallet so that you know what each layer is)
Start with opening a new 800x600 transparent image. (Don't worry we can crop later)
Open Frame 5 and copy & paste it onto your canvas as a new layer, then re-size it to 70% , now get your move tool and click inside your frame. Go to selections, then click modify then go to expand , change your setting to 8.

Make a new raster layer, open your Paper 7 and copy & paste it "INTO Selection" , in your layers pallet move your paper layer below your frame layer then on your keyboard hit "Ctrl & d" to deselect.
Now on your frame layer, give it a drop shadow, my settings are Offset 3, Horizontal 3,Attributes Opacity 60, Blur 5.00 , Color -Black (#000000) and make sure that Shadown On New Layer is UN-Checked.
Now open your Hill 2 element, copy & paste as a new layer,then re-size it to 50%, in your layers pallet move your Hill 2 layer between your frame & paper layer.  Now position your Hill 2 element to the lower right of your frame, to get rid of any parts of the Hill 2 element that are showing on the outside of your frame, use your eraser tool and excess.

Open your Little Girl 2 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, now re-size it to 40%, position it so it looks like she is sitting on the hill.Then in your layer pallet move your Girl 2 element above your frame layer. Then go to adjust, click on Sharpness, then click sharpen.

Open your Pond element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, go to Image, then go to Mirror, then place it on your tag so that it looks like the Hill runs into the pond, then add a drop shadow.
Now open Tree 1, Copy & paste as a new element, re-size to 35%, now position it inside your frame, use my tag above for reference.

Open Mushroom 2 elelment, then copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size your mushroom to 35%, position it so that it is at the lower left corner of your frame, then go to adjust, down to sharpness then click sharpen , then give your mushroom 2 a drop shadow.

Now we need to open the Little Girl element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 30%, then re-size it again to 80%. Once re-sized position it so it looks like she is sitting on the mushroom, then go to adjust , then to sharpeness, then click sharpen and then give your little girl a drop shadow.
Open your House element, then copy & paste it onto your canvas, re-size it to 35%, now in your layer pallet move your House layer below your little girl & mushroom layers. Position to your liking , then go to adjust , then sharpness and then sharpen, then give your house a drop shadow.

Open your Fireflies element, copy & paste it as a new layer on your canvas, then re-size it to 50%, now in your layers pallet move the fireflies layer down so that it is just above your frame layer.
Now we need our Vines element, copy & paste it as a new layer on to your canvas, then re-size it to 50%, position your vines so that it is at the top left corner of your frame. Now go to your layers pallet and move your vines layer to the bottom so it is the 2nd layer from the bottom. Still in your layers pallet, right click on your vines layer , then click duplicate, on your duplicated layer go to image, then mirror. Then go back to image, click on free rotate, click on right, then change your setting to 20.00. Position it a little to where you are happy with it on the right side of your frame, then give both of your vines layers a drop shadow.

Open Bow 2, copy & paste as a new layer on your canvas, re-size it to 50%, and position it at the top of your frame. Then go to adjust, click on sharpeness, then click sharpen. Now give it a little drop shadow.
Open Tree 1, copy & paste as a new layer, re-size it to 35%, and position it behind your house & mushroom girl. Also make sure that your Tree 1 layer in your layers pallet is below your house, mushroom & girl layers. Go to adjust, click on sharpeness and then click sharpen. Give it a drop shadow.

Now open your Bird element, copy & paste it as a new layer, re-size it to 10%, and place it on top of Tree 1 that is to the left of your frame. Go to adjust, click on sharpness, then click sharpen. In your layers pallet right click on your Bird layer, click duplicate. Then go to image, click on mirror, then position your second Bird on the upper right side of your frame. (See mine for reference if needed) 

Add your name & credits/copyright at this time :-) Also you might want to crop your tag to get rid of any excess canvas that we didn't use.

 IF you do not want to animate your tag (pond) then you can save your tag now!

If you wish to animate lets continue :

First click on your pond layer in your layer pallet, then in your tools click on your "freehand selection" tool. Then on your image trace out the outline of the pond. Then go back to your layers pallet, right click on your pond layer and click "Promote Selection To Layer". Then right click on the promoted selection and duplicate that layer 2 x's for a total of 3 layers. Now on your keyboard push your Ctrl & s keys to deselect.
 One the first layer (which is the bottom pond layer) go to effects, then go to your plug-ins, then go to dsb flux, then click bright noise, set the intensity to 20, then click the circle next to the "Mix" one time. Click ok, then close of that layer and make the second pond layer active, go to effects, plug-ins, dsb flux, then bright noise, only this time click the circle next to the "Mix" 2 times, then click ok, now close off the 2nd layer and unhide & click on the 3rd pond layer, go to effects, then your plug-ins, dsb flux then bright noise, this time click on the circle next to "Mix" 3 x's. Then click ok!


 Now go back to your layers pallet, unhide the first pond layer and hide pond layers 2 & 3 and make pond layer 1 active.


Now go and open your Animation Shop if it isn't open already, go back to your PSP, and making sure your on your pond layer 1 and pond layers (make sure you are on the pond layers that we promoted to selections earlier)  2 & 3 are closed off (click the eye to hide the layer). Copy merged (on the blue area on your canvas) and then go to your Animation Shop and right click and paste as new animation, then go back to your PSP, hide pond layer 1 and un-hide pond layer 2, copy merged and go to your Animation Shop, make sure your first frame is active (click on it) then right click , then click paste , then past AFTER current frame. Go back to your PSP , hide pond layer 2 and unhide pond layer 3, copy merged go to Animation Shop and right click on your second frame then click paste, then click AFTER current frame.

Now view your animation to see if you are happy with it, if so then re-size your completed tag (remember to re-size in animation shop just press your Shift & s key, once your re-size window opens set it to whatever size you need and click ok. For this tag I saved mine a 550. 


Then save your compelted tag and you have completed the tutorial!

As always if you have done any of my tutorials I would LOVE to see what you made, so please send me an email with your tag and I would love to display it here on my blog :-)
