FRAMED BEAUTY

For this tutorial you will need

* Tubes of choice, I am using the work of Jennifer Janesko. They are PTU Tubes which you can purchase from CDO HERE
(or you can use 4 different tubes of your choice FROM THE SAME ARTIST!)

* The AWESOME  Scrap kit "Turn_Back_Time" is from Crazy Carita Scraps which is a FTU kit.  This kit was one Carita retired and graciously gave to anyone who would like it. (Formerly a PTU kit) She so kindly is allowing tutorial writers to include any elements in their supplies which you will find included in the supplies folder for this tutorial.
Be sure to visit PTE and take a look at the kits Carita has for sale. They are all gorgeous.  You can find her kits at PTE

Let's Begin

Open all the supplies from the supplies folder in PSP

1. Open a new canvas 650 x 300 transparent background.

2.  With your Bow 3 element, edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas.  On your layer palette right click on your bow layer and "Duplicate", then duplicate again so you have 3 bow layers.  Arrange them so that they line up from left to right across your canvas centered.
(see my print screen below for how I have mine)


3.  On your layer palette right click on any layer and "merge visible"

3.  With your Frame 1 element, edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas then reduce the size to 45% by going to "Image - Resize - 45%" and make sure the "all layers" box is UNCHECKED.  Move the frame over to the left hand side of your canvas then on your layer palette right click on it and "duplicate" then up to your top tool bar and "Image - Mirror"

(see my print screen below for what mine looks like now)


4.  On your layer palette right click on your top frame layer and "merge down" (merging your 2 frame layers together)

5.  Take your magic wand tool and click inside all 4 frames until you have marching ants
The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

6. "Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "5"

7.  "Edit", "copy" and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas the "Paper1then go up to "Selections - Invert" and hit the "delete" key on your keyboard. On your layer palette drag this layer UNDER your frame layer.  "Selections - Select None"

8.  On your layer palette click on your frame layer to make it active and with your magic wand tool using the same settings as you did previously click inside the far left frame only then "Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "5"

9.  "Edit", "copy" and edit, paste as a new layer one of your tubes and move the face of your tube into the centre of the frame.  "Selections - Invert" and hit the "delete" key on your keyboard then on your layer palette drag this layer UNDER your frame layer.

10.  Repeat steps 8 & 9 for the remaining 3 frames until you have a different tube image in each frame

(see my print screen below for what I have now)

11.  With your Ribbon 4 element, edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas then reduce the size to 60% by going to "Image - Resize - 60%" and make sure the "all layers" box is UNCHECKED. Move the ribbon over the bottom left side of your frame.  On your layer palette right click on your Ribbon 4 layer and "Duplicate", then up to "Image -Mirror".  On your layer palette right click on your top Ribbon 4 layer and "merge down" (merging your 2 ribbon 4 layers together").  I then took my eraser tool and erased parts of the ribbon on the frame to make it look like it was intertwining with the frame.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


12.  With your Ribbon 3 element, edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas then reduce the size to 35% by going to "Image - Resize - 35%" and make sure the "all layers" box is UNCHECKED. n your layer palette right click on your Ribbon 3 layer and "Duplicate", then up to "Image -Mirror".  On your layer palette right click on your top Ribbon 3 layer and "merge down" (merging your 2 ribbon 3 layers together"). Move this layer to the centre of your frame.
