♥ Supplies Used ♥
Tube of choice is one from Christine Kotlark called "Summer Breeze", which I purchased when she was at PTE. Please find a tube to your liking.
Font of Choice: I used Waterbrush by Rob Leuschke. You can get it here.
Scrap Kits: (FTU) "Yellow Dream" by Rucola Designs, which you can find here.
Mask: “Mask 2” by LBM, which you can find here. If you know where to find her, please email me. I found this on 4shared when downloading another set of masks and she does not give a location for her site.
♥ 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, added 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.
♥ Let's Begin! ♥
Open a new canvas of 800x800, Open element 3 (brown frame) and re-size by 23% then add to your canvas.
Open element 1 (door), re-size by 15% and move to the left hand side of the frame. Drop shadow.
Open paper 5 and re-size by 15%. Grab your magic wand and click inside the frame. Selections > Modify by 25 > Insert paper > Invert > delete > Select none. Move to below your frame.
Open paper 8 and re-size by 18%. Apply your mask, duplicate, merge layers and then add as a new layer below your frame paper layer.
Open your tube, re-size if needed (I up-sized it by 125%) mirror, and move into position above the frame layer. Move it below the frame layer. Erase the entire bottom of the tube that shows from beneath the frame.
Duplicate tube and move above the frame. Drop shadow this layer and then earse any tube that needs erasing.
