Greg’s Factory Output Vol. II - Pool Shadow

“Nightmare ” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Aurelie of Pink Candy Designs and can be purchased from Twilight Scraps. You can visit her blog here. Thank you Aurelie for such a wicked kit!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Arch as a new layer.
Try to position it on your canvas in the same place as I have mine.
Using your Freehand Selection Tool follow around the window.
Copy and paste Paper 1 as a new layer below the arch.
Move into position.
Tap the delete key.
Apply Greg’s Factory Output Vol. II - Pool Shadow:
Default settings.

Close out your white background.
Merge Visible.
Reopen your white background.

Copy and paste Frame 3 as a new layer.
Resize 80%
Free rotate Left 5 degrees.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
Copy and paste Paper 1 as a new layer below the frame.
Resize 70%
Move into position.
Tap the delete key.
Copy and paste your tube below the frame.
Tap the delete key.

Merge Visible the tube, frame, and paper.

Now you can move both merged layers into a better position if you choose.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Grass: Resize 90%
Bush: Resize 50%/Duplicate/Mirror(place this one behind the frame)
Cat: Resize 50%
Crystal Ball: Resize 40%

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 14 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name:
Color Pallet:
Foreground: Black
Background: Pattern/Set to Paper 13
Stroke: 1
Type your name.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Repeat the inner bevel.

Resize all layers 80%.
