"Black Train"-FTU Tut

In this tut, I chose to reuse one of my favorite tubes from Zindy Neilson, and you can purchase it HERE.
The amazing scrapkit I am using is a FTU and called “Beloved Memory” offered by Kara at “Sweet Cravings Scraps”. You can find it on her blog HERE.
I am not sure about the mask so if you are aware of whose it is please email me so I may give them the proper credit J
I have also supplied a template of this tag and screenshots. You can get it HERE.

If you are using the same tube… Resize it 85%.
Add drop shadow (4,4,50,4)
Select the frame raster and use the magic wand to select the inside of the frame.
Copy your tube and Paste beneath the frame raster and place it accordingly.
Selections->invert-> delete any extra part of the tube outside the frame.
Now Paste the tube again on top of the frame raster.
Lower the opacity of the top tube to about 30 (so that you can see the frame underneath) and maneuver it so that both tubes line up exactly.
Use your freehand selection tool, and delete any parts outside of the frame except the hand and hair.
Then raise the opacity of the tube to 80.
Add your name and copyright.
Now we are going to animate this tag!
Select the train raster.
Use the freehand selection tool to draw a small oval toward the top of the train’s smoke stack.
Effects-> EyeCandy 5-> Nature-> Smoke

Copy Merge

"End of Eternity"- FTU Tut

I used Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9 along with Filters Unlimited 2.
I used a dear friend’s FTU Scrapkit in this tut. Her name is Jenny and you can get the kit called “Heaven” on her blog HERE.
The tube used is by one of my favorite artist Zindy Neilson and you can purchase it and a license number HERE.
I am not sure whose mask I am using so if you know please email me and let me know so I can give them proper credit.
I have also included a template of this tut along with the up close screenshot and you can download it HERE.

Ok I am writing this for someone who has working knowledge of PSP and who has downloaded and is using the template provided.
Select you tube that you wish to use. If you using the same tube I used then resize it by 80%, copy, and paste it between the “back elements” and “top elements”. Adjust-> Sharpen
Add drop shadow with settings 4, 4, 50, 4.
Now go to the original tube with its original size and resize it at 200%. Copy it and paste it on top of the “Back elements”.
Center the tubes face on top of the clock.
Change the opacity of the large tube (centered in the clock) to 50.
Use the freehand selection tool to trace around the outside of the clock.
Selections-> invert and delete the excess of the tube outside of the clock.
Now “merge visible”
This kit does not normally come in black and white, but in color. So to make it black and white…
Effects-> Filters Unlimited 2-> Color Effects-> Grayscale
Then Effects-> Filters Unlimited

Now add you copy right and Name and you are Done!
Hope you enjoyed it! Feel free to email me your creations, I would LOVE to add it to my blog J
