This tutorial

was written by me, Gems, September 6th 2008

Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

All my tutorials are registered with Twinc.

I am using the wonderful art of Suzanne Woolcott

You need a licence to use Suzannes work, which you can purchase through

Gorjuss Art

this was written in PSPX

and assumes you have a good understanding of PSP

the scrapkit is from "Tantrum Scraps " and is called

"Addictive Pleasures" and is available for purchase HERE

it is a fabulous kit and is on sale at present.

Any vintage floral scrapkit will work though.

the designer is Jessica

mask by me- HERE

Font i used is Kontiki

ok off we go!!

Open a new canvas 600 x 600 and flood fill with white

Get a paper of choice, i used paper 4 and paste as a new layer

Go to Layers-new mask layer-image and find my mask

invert mask is UN-checked

apply mask

go to your layer palette and delete the mask layer,

answer yes to the pop up>layer palette-ungroup layers.

resize mask layer by 85%> duplicate mask layer>move them slightly apart to make an oval shape

ok, open up journal piece and copy it as a new layer>use your deform/pick tool to angle it and posistion it > add a drop shadow > 1>1>50>5.00

Add the same drop shadow to all other elements and layers as you go along.

Next open circlemat and re size by 80% of original,

Paste as a new layer > move it to the right of the image

Now open up your dried flowers paste as a new layer > use your deform/pick tool to angle and place easily.

(use my tag for reference)

Next open up the envelope > copy and paste it as a new image >duplicate it > paste your tube as a new layer > drop the tube between the 2 envelope layers.

Use your eraser tool to erase parts of the envelope to make it look like your tube is sat in the envelope itself.

Hide all your layers apart from the 2 envelope layers and your tube layer > layers >merge > merge visible


Copy and paste your floralspray as a new layer and drop it behind your tube & envelope layer > resize if needed.

Once again use your pick/deform tool to angle and place it easily.

I added the wordart and the pins in the same way > i also added the stitching and staples.

and your ę and your name

layers merge-merge visible.

and your done.!

Save as a JPG.
