Home of the Brave

 Supplies Used 

Tube of choice: one that came with the kit.
“Alex Brush” by Rob Leuschke, here
“Sparkling Summer” by Raye’s Designs,  here.
 “Mask 4” by Rosey, HERE

 Lets' Begin! 

Open paper 1 and resize to 850 x 850. Apply your mask and then add a new layer, flood-fill white and send to the bottom. Name and save as a *psd.

Open ele16, resize by 38%, and add above your mask layer.

Open ele2, resize to 550 width then use your eraser on 250 to slowly erase the center.

Open ele20 (eagle), resize by 65% and add above your mesh wire layer. Center, duplicate and then send one layer under the frame. Drop shadow the top layer only.

Open paper 1 again and do the same resize as before. Add above your frame layer, use your magic wand to click inside frame, invert selection, highlight paper layer and then hit delete. Move to above your mesh layer.

Open ele12, resize by 400 height and then add on one side of your frame layer, taking care to cover the ends with the eagle and then merge the layers.

Open ele8, resize by 15% and add above your frame layer, on either side of your eagle.

Open ele7, resize by 17% and add above your eagle layer. Flip, mirror and position at the bottom.

Open ele6, resize by 9% and add below your red flower layer. Center on either side of the red, duplicate, mirror and merge.

Duplicate your fireworks layer. Use a small eraser (I set mine to 35) and erase as close as you can to the fireworks tops. Drop shadow only the full firework layer.

Drop Shadow remaining layers, crop or resize to your liking then add your name with copyright. If you want your tag static, save now and up to a photo sharing site to enjoy.

 Lets’ Animate! 

Duplicate your uppermost firework layer, for 3 total layers. Add a PDN noise of your choice to each layer.

Hide the top 2 noise layers; Edit > Select All > Edit > Copy merged and add into AS3. Do this until all three layers are in AS3.

On your first frame in AS3, Edit > Select all > shift +z to add your optimization settings and then save. Upload to a photo sharing site and enjoy!
