Sweet Escape FTU-Tutorial


Materials
The beautiful tube I used in this tag was by Anna Marine. You can purchase her artwork and a license at CILM here.
The FABULOUS scrapkit I used was by Scrapbooking Marzeny and you can find it here.

However if you would just like to use a template of this tag you can download that here.





Tutorial

Open up template from the download supplied.
Decide which Tube you would like to use. Then Resize it so it fits correctly in the tube.
If you use the same Anne Marine tube as I did you will select "Raster 3" (the frame raster).
Insert the tube as a New Layer.
Select the "Freehand Selection Tool" and trace the inside of the window frame so that you can delete the part of the tree branches that are sticking out of the side of the window (the part of the branches that are inside the marching ants are the ones that will be deleted). That way it looks like the branches are outside the window and she is inside (because her elbow will still be hanging over the frame).
Now add your copywrite and convert it to a raster layer.
Now write whatever text you wish to write (Like I did with my name).
Convert it to a raster layer. 
Go to "Effects-->Plugin--> Eye Candy 5:Nature--> Snow draft"
settings are:
Drift height: 1.62
0
30
38
Make sure "Start Snow Drift from Bottom" is NOT selected.
Dust on All Features: 6
65
100
Click "Random Speed"
Then, "OK"

Now the fun part... MAKING IT SNOW!!!!
(if you do not have animation shop, the template already has the look of it snowing in the background, but it is not animated)

ANIMATION
1. In PSP select "Raster 4" (the night background on the template)

2. Go to "Effects-->Plugin--> Eye Candy 5:Nature--> Snow draft" 
settings are:
Drift height: 0
Dust on All Features: 6
65
100
Click "Random Speed"
Then, "OK"

3. Copy Merge (ctrl+shift+C)

4. Open Animation Shop and "Edit--> Paste as a New Image"

5. Go back to PSP and undo the snow effect on the night back drop that you just did.

6. Go to "Effects-->Plugin--> Eye Candy 5:Nature--> Snow draft"
settings are:
Drift height: 0
Dust on All Features: 6
65
100
Click "Random Speed"
Then, "OK"


7. Copy Merge (ctrl+shift+C)

8. Go back to Animation Shop and hit (Ctrl+L) this will add another frame to the animation.

9. Repeat steps 5-8 and do it 6-9 time... It just depends on how many frames of animation you wish to have. In mine there are 8.

10. Then go to "Edit--> Select All"

11. Go to "Animation--> Frame Properties"
change it to 20.
Then ok...

Now you can view your animation.... ITS SNOWING!!!!
