FTU Magical Winter

Magical Winter was written by Myself on 16th November 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 artwork of PinUp Toons available at CDO

Beautiful Ftu scrap kit is 'Winter Magic' by Mirella at  A Space Between

Mask Wsl mask 75 by Chelle at  WeeScotsLass Creations

Font used - Beyond Wonderland.

Filters used ( optional )

PhotoEffex - Scanlines

Open a new image 700 x 700.

Starting with mask layer. C/paste paper 10 re sized to 85%.
Load mask from disk - Fit to layer. In layer palette - delete mask and merge group.
Apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines - Default settings.

Above the mask layer and centrally on the canvas c/paste element  34 Snowflake Frame re sized to 80%. Duplicate, change blend mode of top copy to soft light and merge down.

Above Snowflake Frame and again central on the canvas c/paste element 26 - Floral Frame. Re sized to 95%.
Click in centre of frame with magic wand to float the inner. Selections - Modify expand by 7. C/paste paper 8 re sized to 60%. Invert the selection and hit delete. To the paper layer apply Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance and move below Frame. D/shadow the frame and merge down with paper layer.

Towards the bottom of the canvas along and above the bottom of the larger Floral Frame c/paste element 1 Snow Covered Log - Re sized to 75%. D/shadow.

C/paste your tube. Position toward the left side of the canvas above the log layer. when happy with positioning, duplicate tube and on top copy adjust gaussian blur by 3, change blend mode to soft light and opacity to 50. D/shadow the bottom copy.

Now work desired elements from kit around the tube and Frame layers. D/shadow to your liking.
 I used....

23 Lantern - 70%. Image - Mirror. Position bottom right behind Snow covered log.

35 Lantern Plant - 60%. Bottom right, above log behind tube.

15 Bird - 35%. Image - Mirror. Bottom right, above Lantern/ Plant.

3 Bow - 70%. Rotate right by 3. Top centre of Frame behind tube.

54 Leaves - 30%. Rotate right by 40. Position top left of frame behind Bow. Duplicate mirror copy to right side.

18 Bird House - 60%. Top Left above Frame, behind Leaves/Tube. Use eraser tool to remove post.

27 Wheel - 40%. Bottom left above Bird house. Behind tube.

54 Leaves - 30%. Rotate left by 16. Use manual color correction to change the colour slightly. Position bottom left above wheel.

10 Pine Cone - 30 % Image - Mirror. Bottom left above tube layer.

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.
