I am using the wonderful art of Suzanne Woolcott
You need a licence to use Suzannes work, which you can purchase through
this was written in PSPX & animation shop
and assumes you have a good understanding of PSP and Animation Shop
the scrapkit is from "Jessica" and is called
"Addictive Pleasures" and is available for purchase HERE
it is a fabulous kit and is soo worth it
Any vintage floral scrapkit will work though.
Font i used is Edwardian Script
Penta-colour dot & jeans here
xero-ultra violet here
Can not supply the bling im affraid
ok off we go!!
Open a new canvas 800 x 700 and flood fill with white
ok, open up the circlemat from the kit and paste as a new layer> add a drop shadow > 1>1>50>5.00
Add the same drop shadow to all other elements as you go along.
Next open frame1 and paste as a new layer,
followed by frame2.
Open and paste as a new layer doodle1 and drop it below your circlemat.
Make your frame2 active in your layer palette and paste as a new layer doodle2 place this to the right hand side.
See my tag for reference.
Open up your branch and paste that as a new layer, add the drop shadow and then duplicate this layer.
Use your mover tool to move the branches apart slightly.
Choose 2 different flowers i used flowers 6 & 7
and i resized these by 60% of original.
I opened heart1 and resized this by 50%
Paste as a new layer > move it to the right of the image
Now open up your heartbox paste as a new layer > use your deform/pick tool to angle and place easily.
(use my tag for reference)
I duplicated the box heart layer and resized using my pick/deform tool
Now add your main tube and paste it as a new layer and drop it below the 2 frame layers, add a drop shadow and use your eraser tool to tidy up any edges.
Hide your white Background layer > tube layer active
> layers >merge > merge visible
Duplicate your image layer, on the bottom image, go to adjust > blur > gaussian Blur =10
On the blurred layer go to effects > Xero > ultra Violet
and apply these setting
Now still on your blur layer > effects > penta > colour dot and apply these settings
staying on the blur layer effects > penta > Jeans
and apply these settings
Make sure all layers are visible
layers merge-merge visible.
and your name & your ę
Crop off any excess
edit > copy
Now over to AS
Paste as a new animation
Open up your bling in AS and see how many frames it has
if you look on the right hand side of your system tray at the bottom you will see the frames.
duplicate your image so that it has the same amount of frames as your bling
edit > select all> on your image
on your bling > edit > select all >edit > copy
click on your image blue bar to activate it > on your tools make sure your propergate paste button is active
edit > paste into selected
goto view and check the animation is running ok and thats it!!
Save it and your done!
