This tutorial

was written by me, Gems, Jan 12th 2010

Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

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 Animation Shop
& assumes you have a good understanding of both.

I dont use many PTU kits in my tuts however Irene is an exception to that rule

place to the left hand side of the canvas
Add a small drop shadow to any elements you wish as we go along
use a dark colour from the paper instead of black
I used 1-1-30-5.00 and the colour #222832

Open up the square frame from your kit
resize to 21% of original
copy and paste and place to the left side of the canvas
Use your pick tool to angle,layers-duplicate
activate the bottom frame.
Get the tree and resize to 21%
paste as a new layer.
(It should be sat between the two frames)
Move the tree into posistion then use your eraser tool
activate the top frame and erase the bits of the frame

then tree should look like its through the frame.
see my tag for reference.
Get the cloud from the kit.resize to 21% then resize again to75%

Use your pick tool to angle slightly.

Get the round frame and resize to 21%
paste as a new layer slighly to the right hand side.
Get your book resize to 21% paste as a new layer
and use your pick tool to angle.
Get the text from the supplies and place on the pages of your book.
Or you can add your own text if you wish
Resize the butterfly to 21% and place and angle using the pick tool again.

Get the wordart from the kit.
Resize to 20% then resize again to 75%
Use your pick tool to angle.
Try to have it so that it looks like it is pouring out of the book itself.
Stay on the wordart layer
go to effects
eye candy-gradient glow
apply these settings and choose a colour from your tag.

Get the cat from the kit, resize to 20% and then resize again by 75%
paste as a new layer, layers duplicate.
On your layer palette move the bottom original cat
down below the wordart.
Activate the top layered cat and use your eraser tool
to erase the cat where the text is on his back leg,
as you did before with the frame and tree.
This will make the cat look like he is stepping over the text.
