♥ Supplies Used ♥
Tube of choice is one from Lia, which you can find here.
Font of Choice: I used Updock by Rob Leuschke. You can get it here.
Scrap Kits: (FTU) "Mon Petit Jardin" by Maelia Designs. Her blog is here, but her link to the kit has changed to here.
Mask: Mask 24 by Narah, which you can find here. I stumbled upon these when downloading a different set of masks. The download does not include an actual website but does allow for use in tutorials.
♥ Plugins used ♥
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Lokas 3D Shadow
♥ Let's Begin! ♥
Open a new canvas of 700x400, open paper 4 but re-size in pixels so that your paper is only slightly longer than your canvas. Click on the image below to see how to do this:
Undo your mask and add as a new layer under your mask. Change your opacity to 65% to lighten the background colour.
NOTE: Make sure you now change your re-size settings to percentage and check “lock aspect ratio” so that your re-size will be correct from here on out.
Open element 1 and re-size up by 20%. Move to the bottom of the frame, flip, add a wide, light drop shadow and flip back into place.
Open element 19, re-size by 23%, add to your canvas above the hills layer and add a dark PSP drop shadow.
Open element 5, re-size by 25%, add above your hills layer, move to the bottom right hand side of the canvas as close as you can to the buds and drop shadow.
Open your tube, re-size by 65%, add to the left hand upper corner of your canvas and add your drop shadow.
Open element 2, re-size by 10%, add it above your hills layer, and add a wide, light drop shadow.
Open the bird, mirror, re-size by 10%, add above the flower layer and add a wide, light drop shadow. Move it into the position you wish on the flower.
♥ Let's Animate! ♥
Before full animation, re-size by 85%, add your name and copyright information.
On your mask layer, duplicate three times, until you have four mask layers. Do nothing with your original layer. Add these settings to Eye Candy Constellation (Click to enlarge):
1st Layer – Random Seed: 1
2nd Layer – Random Seed: 603
3rd layer – Random Seed: 6681
Use the colour #db8eb6 when using “Fill with Solid colour”. Once applied, lower the opacity of each layer to 65%.
Hide layers 2 & 3 of the constellation layers. Highlight the top layer and copy all layers merged. Add as a new animation in AS3.
Unhide each layer and add behind the last layer in AS3. Then Edit > Select All > File >L Optimization Wizard and apply your settings.
Upload to Photobucket and enjoy!
