PTU Freddy's Dream

Freddy's Dream was written by myself on 14th 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 amazing artwork of Diana Gali available at  SATC

Matching Ptu Kit is 'Freddy' by Bibi's Collection. Also at  SATC

Mask Wsl 208 by Chelle at  Weescotslass Creations

Font Used - Nightmare 5

Filters Used

Tramages - Mo Jellyfish

Open a new image 700 x 700.
Starting with mask layer...
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with a gradient of your choice. See pic for my gradient settings.

Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette, delete mask and merge group. Use raster deform tool to re size and position to your liking. Duplicate the layer and change blend mode of top copy to Multiply. Don't merge.

Above mask layer c/paste Element 80 Frame re sized to 50%.
 Click in centre with magic wand to float. Selections - Modify - Expand by 2. C/paste paper 8 re sized to 50%. Position. Invert the selection and hit delete. Select none. Apply Tramages - Mo Jellyfish with settings below. Repeat. Move paper layer below Frame. Go back to selections and working on paper layer, Select all - Float. C/paste Element 96 Ghost 1 Re sized to 30 %. Position towards the left.
De Float - Invert - Delete. Select none. Reduce opacity of Ghost to around 20% and merge layer down with paper layer.

Back on Frame layer. Take your magic wand tool and click inside the cut out section of the frame to float. Selections Modify - Expand by 2. Add new raster layer and flood fill the floating selection with gradient used on mask layer. Select none. Move below frame layer apply Mo jellyfish as before. Duplicate layer, change blend mode of top copy to Hard light. Merge layer down with original then merge Frame down with this layer.

D/shadow Frame and merge layer down with paper layer.

C/paste Element 18 Tree 1 re sized to 70%. Position behind Frame on the right. Duplicate and mirror copy to left side above the Frame. D/shadow.

C/paste Element 21 Tree 2 re sized to 70%. Position behind  Frame at the top of canvas. D/shadow.

C/paste your tube above Frame on the right side of canvas. D/shadow.

Work desired elements from kit around frame and tube layers and d/shadow to your liking. I used .....

41 Barbed Wire - 50%. Behind Tree/tube across centre of paper and Frame. Use eraser tool to remove excess that shows to the right of tube.

51 Hand Print - 30% Position top left of frame. Behind Tree.

14 Bird - 25%. Top left, above Tree.

2 Web - 50% - Mirror. Position bottom left of Frame, above Tree. Duplicate and move copy to top of tag behind left side of tube.

5 Jar - 70%. Bottom left, above Web layer.

118 Eyeball - 40%. Bottom Left. Position behind Jar so that it appears to be sitting in there.

103 Chainsaw - 60%. Bottom left. Above Jar.

112 Spider - 60% - Rotate right 21 degrees. Bottom left above Chainsaw. Duplicate and change blend mode of top copy to screen. Shadow the bottom copy.

13 Bones - 60%. Bottom of tag. Behind and to right of Chainsaw. Above tube layer.

130 Rose - 50 % - Rotate right by 12 degrees. Bottom of tag. Above Chainsaw and Bones.

50 Fire - 40%. Position above bottom of tube behind Bones. Duplicate and move copy up slightly behind left side of tube. Duplicate again Mirror and position this copy bottom right of  tag above tube layer.

8 Razorblades - 50%. Bottom right, above Fire.

66 Blood - 40%. Position behind tube on the right. Duplicate and move copy behind Chainsaw.

66 Blood - 20% - Mirror. Make 5 copies and position randomly along bottom edge of tag behind elements.

29  Lamp- 70% - Mirror. Top right, behind tube.

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.
