Let's Begin!

Create two canvases of 900 x 900; leave one blank.

Add a layer over the remaining canvas. Select the Shapes tool from the tools list. In the toolbar, make sure you are drawing a filled circle shape with a solid line and brush tip of 50.

Draw out your first circle, resize to 800 x 800 and add ONLY the circle to the other canvas. Center the circle in this canvas and then invert the colour to white.

Go back to the circle, resize to 750 x 750 and add this above the last circle; center again but leave black. Replace this black circle with paper 2 from the kit (after a 700 x 700 resize).

Create another 900 x 900 canvas and create a new circle. However, this circle is an outline ONLY and in a brush tip of 5.

Delete the white background, resize by 450, 550 and 650 widths and add to the black circle on the other canvas; center each one. Do NOT merge these layers.

Open paper 3, resize to 900 x 900 and apply mask; upsize mask if needed. Upsize this mask layer to 1050 and add this below the white circle. Duplicate to darken and squish if needed.

Open the tube and add above all layers; center. Depending on the tube you use, you will have to determine the resize or upsize to use.

Add a new layer over the tube, use the rectangle tool to add a small ribbon over top and delete the excess OUTSIDE of the white lower circle (the one you created first). Lower the opacity of the strip to 200.

Open the pearls, resize by 30% and add to one side of the design above the mask layer. Duplicate and mirror to place on the opposite side.

Open the sand, flip, resize by 25% and add at the bottom of the design.

Open the bottle, resize by 20% and add above all the layers. Open the anchor, resize by 13% and add near the bottle.

Open the seashell of your choice, resize by 25% and add in front of the bottle.

Open the flower, resize by 30% and add above the strip layer (right-hand side) and one at 25% between the seashell and the bottle.

Open the blue bow, resize by 25% and add above all layers, around the bottle neck.

Drop shadow everything to your liking. Add your own personal touches now.

Crop/resize to your liking then add your name with copyright. Animate, if you like, or keep static. Upload to a photo sharing site to enjoy.

Let's Begin!

You can animate by making glitter circles or …..

On each of the circle lines (above paper layer), we will add a Xenofex Constellation to go with each of the three glitter circle layers.

Duplicate each layer, merge these into one layer, DS and move below the single circle layers.

Merge the remaining circles together and then duplicate for three layers.

Use the initial Constellation settings below. Try to stay above 5000 seed for the bottom circle set (I flipped and mirrored before applying) and under 1400 seed for the middle circle set (do not flip or mirror).
Add each into AS3 in order, apply optimization settings and save. Upload to keep animation and enjoy.
