♥ Lets’ create the frame! ♥
Create a new image 1200x1200. Open frame 1, add to your canvas and then duplicate. Mirror the duplicated frame and even it up with the first one. Create one section between the two and make it even. Merge them together.
Crop your frame design as close as you can without harming the frame design and hold to the side. We’ll need this later.
♥ Lets’ Begin! ♥
Create another new image 900x900. We’ll crop later.
Open paper 15 and apply your mask. Add this to your canvas. Upsize the mask layer by 115% and then re-size by 95%.
Open paper 9 and re-size by 85%.
Go back to the frame we created, re-size by 85% and add above your mask layer. Drop shadow by 7-4-45-9.00.
Grab your magic wand and, while holding shift, click inside of each frame. Selections > Modify > by 4 > add paper > Position is the way you like it > Invert > Delete > Select none. Move below the frame.
Open grass 1 and add above your frame layer. Flip > add drop 14-7-45-9.00 > flip again.
Open your tube and re-size by 120%. Add this above your grass layer. Flip > drop shadow 14-7-65-23.00 > flip again.
Go back to your grass layer and duplicate. Move the black side to the left. On the duplicate, pull the red side to the right. Erase any overhang that may show behind the top of your tube and then merge together.
Open cemetery and add behind the grass layer Drop shadow as you did your tube.
Open cross 2 and re-size by 135%. Add this above the cemetery and duplicate. On one layer, mirror and drop shadow as you did the tube. Erase the opposite side. On the second tube, just drop shadow as you did the tube and erase the opposite side. Merge the two together.
Open the moon, re-size by 70% and add behind your cross layer. Position to your liking and apply the drop shadow.
Open rose 2, rotate to horizontal, re-size by 80% and add behind your tube layer. Drop shadow with the same settings as tube. Duplicate, center to your liking and merge the two layers together.
Open the harp and add below your grass layer, to the left. Drop shadow with 7-4-45-9.00.
Reposition your cemetery. Just move it up slightly so that it can be seen below the rose layer.
Open sparkles 1 and add this above your rose layer. Position the bottom of the sparkles on the left rose.
Duplicate the sparkle layer and move the bottom grouping of sparkles to the right rose. Flip and position once there. Merge the two layers together.
Hide your white background and erase the small sparkle that is to the right of your design.
Crop your design and re-size (if needed) before animation.
♥ Lets’ animate! ♥
Duplicate your sparkles layer 2x, for a total of 3 layers. Do not drop shadow.
Using PSP noise, add noise to each sparkle layer. Uncheck monochrome and go in the following order: 45 – 65 – 85. Lower the opacity or each layer to 80%.
Re-size to your liking and then add your name and copyright.
Hide each layer and, in turn, add them to AS3. Apply your optimization settings and save.
