♥ Let's Begin! ♥
I created three different canvases to work on at the same time. Banner is 600 x 250, large avatar is 250 x 300, and small avatar is 150 x 200.
Open and create tube, then re-size each the height of each of the avatar canvases (300 and 200); for the banner, I used the large avatar re-size.
Add this colour (AA4A16) to your colour wheel. Add a new layer above each canvas: Effects > Render > Border > 5 > Line > OK. Outline each with this colour: 34231D.
(If you want to animate later, duplicate the border layer before outlining and drop shadowing.)
Re-size paper 4 by each of the avatar canvas heights (200 and 300) and then 400 for the banner. For the banner, pull the background to one side, duplicate and mirror then merge the two backgrounds together.
Use the autumn leaves from the tube at a 300 widths re-size and add it to each canvas; for the banner, you will need to duplicate.
Open element 32, re-size by 45% and add above the background but behind the tube.
Open element 4, re-size by 40% and add under the tube layer but above the wheat layer; in the banner, one goes above the leaves layer and one below.
*** You have now completed the small avatar. Add the initial now and save. ***
Open element 20, re-size by 30% and add: (banner) one above and below the acorn layer (mirror the lower flower), and add above the acorn layer in the large avatar after you mirror the image.
*** You have now completed the large avatar. Add initial now and save. ***
Open element 93, re-size by 30% and add in two different places.
Open element 19, re-size by 40% and add above the feather layer (left).
Open element 59, re-size by 35% and add below the tube layer (right).
Drop shadow everything to your liking. Add your own personal touches now.
If you have decided to animate, I duplicated the border layer 3x and add a PDN noise to each. I used 75/50/75 on the first layer, 55/50/75 on second and 65/50/75 on the last.
Crop/resize to your liking then add your name with copyright. Upload to a photo sharing site to enjoy.
