FTU The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden was written by Myself on 28th October 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice. I have used the beautiful artwork of Alfadesire. Available at  Pics For Design

Gorgeous Ftu Scrap kit is 'Blessed Be' by Nicky at  Inzpired Creationz Freebiez
( You will find this kit as part of bundle 1. Please leave a thank you when downloading :)

Mask 235 by Chelle at WeeScotsLass Creations

Font Used - Flower in the window.

Open a new image 700 x700.
Starting with the mask layer, c/paste paper 5 re sized to 85%. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Re size 97%.

Above the mask layer, centre of canvas, c/paste Frame 5 re sized to 95%. Image - Mirror. D/shadow.

 Behind the Frame c/paste Door 2. Image - Mirror. Position at the left side of canvas. Use eraser tool to remove any of the door element that exceeds the outer of Frame.

Above the Frame, C/paste your tube. Position roughly central to disguise the inner edge of the door. D/shadow.

Continue by adding elements of choice from kit and working around the Frame and tube layers. D/shadow to your liking.
I used ....

Tree - 80%. Behind tube layer. Top left of Frame.

Ivy 1 - 95%. Position along bottom of Frame. Behind tube layer. Use manual color correction to change the colour of the leaves from source green to target brown.

Bottles 1 - 40%. Bottom left, above Frame, behind the Ivy.

Toad - 30%. Bottom left. Above Ivy.

Pentagram - 40% - Rotate left by 6 degrees. Position to left, behind Bottles and tube layer.

Books 1 - 35%. Bottom right behind tube.

Candles 3 - 50%-  Rotate to right by 4 degrees. Bottom right behind Books and tube.

Bottle 2 - 40%. Bottom right, behind Books / Ivy, above Candles. Duplicate. change blend mode of top copy to multiply, merge down.

Flowers 4 - 80%-  Mirror. Far right. Above Frame. Behind Candles.

Crystal ball - 35%. Bottom of canvas, above tube layer. Duplicate and change blend mode of top copy to multiply.

Ivy 2 - 20% - Mirror. Behind the Crystal ball / tube. Duplicate, move copy to left of canvas behind bottles. Duplicate again and mirror copy to right behind books.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.

Thank you for stopping by and trying this tutorial. I hope you are happy with the results.
