♥ Before We Begin! ♥
I need to let everyone know that I slightly re-worked the mask used before I added it to my masks folder. I opened it, re-sized it by Image > Canvas Size > 1925x1650. Then I add a layer, flood filled it black and then moved it below the original black mask. I highlighted the top then Adjust > Colour Balance > Negative Image to turn the black mask white. I then merged all layers together and saved as a JPEG. It was at this point that I now added it to my masks folder.
I also downloaded all parts of this wonderful kit and added them all into one folder for easy use.
♥ Let's Begin! ♥
Open a new canvas of 800x800, open chipboard frame, add to canvas and re-size by 30%. Move to one side of your canvas.
Open the red/white polka dot paper and re-size by 18%. Add below your frame layer, moving them both around until they are centered.
Open the yellow chevron paper, re-size by 18%. Grab your magic wand and click inside the frame. Selections > Modify by 10 > Insert paper > Invert > delete > Select none. Move to below your frame.
Open your tube and add below your frame. Up-size by 134%, center in your frame, erase entire bottom of the tube then duplicate your tube, and move second layer above frame. Drop shadow your top layer and erase her legs slightly.
Open banner and gently crop out the section you wish to use. I then used my eraser to gently remove certain stitches so it looked right. Then I had to re-size by 35%, added it above my Tube 1 layer and lightly drop shadowed.
Open red ricrack, re-size by 20%, and move into position then give it a light drop shadow.
Open yellow/white flower, re-size by 35%, add it below your banner layer, move it into position and then add a wide, light drop shadow.
Open the green flower, re-size by 45%, add as a new layer behind red/gold flower and lightly drop shadow.
Open the brown flower and add it above your green flower layer. Free rotate by 5 degrees to the right, re-size by 20% and add a wide, light drop shadow.
Open red/gold flower, re-size by 25%, add it below your green flower layer, move it into position and then add a wide, light drop shadow.
Open the leaf of your choice and add below your tube 2 layer, near your yellow/white flower. Re-size by 35%, and then free rotate by 65 degrees to the right. Move to the right hand lower corner and lightly drop shadow.
Open another leaf of your choice and add below your tube 2 layer, near your green flower. Re-size by 35%, and then use your deform tool to move it to your liking. Move to the lower right hand corner and lightly drop shadow. Duplicate, move below your first leaf layer and use your deform tool to rotate to your liking. Merge the two layers together.
Open the last leaf of your choice and add below your red/gold flower layer. Re-size by 35%, and then free rotate by 65 degrees to the left. Move to the upper right hand lower corner and lightly drop shadow.
Open the red gingham bow, rotate counterclockwise, re-size by 15%, add to the left side of the banner and add a wide, light drop shadow.
Open the gold gem sprinkle, re-size 20%, add below your banner and give it a wide, light drop shadow. If there is any drop shadow to the left (as was with mine), erase it.
Crop your design and re-size, if needed. Add your name and copyright then upload to Photobucket and enjoy!
