 Start off with a 600 by 600 workspace floodfilled in white. Open GGS paper1 and add to the canvas. Kinda get you in the mood LOL. Resize GGS rocks by 50% place towards the bottom left of your canvas then duplicate and mirror. Duplicate again flip and move in the center. duplicate each set of rocks and change the top blend mode to hard light. Repeat placement and sizing with the GGS glitter spill. Move these layers below the rocks place your main tube on top of the rocks in the center of the tag.Duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light. Resize the fangipani by 30% then 505 and place on the stem of the glass. Resize the palm tree by 80% and place on top of the rocks to the left. Duplicate and resize by 80% again mirror and move to the right under the rocks. Resize the fern element by 805 and duplicate it. mirror and resize by 50%. Place ribbon bow and colorize via hue and saturation with these settings:230 ans105. duplicate and change blend mode to soft light. Resize starfish by 50%. Then open fish frame from the ocean blue kit and resize. Activate and add a new raster layer paste paper GS 4 into selection and change the blend mode to Color. Click inside of the frame and expand by 4. Add a new raster layer and copy the paper we opened at the bottom which is GGS paper1 into selection. Using your freehand selection tool. select the water in the frame and promote layer.. Duplicate 4 times. you should have 5 of them now. and apply Xenofex2 flag at these settings:
hit seed for each water layer. Now for the paper we opened to get us in the mood apply the mask. duplicate and move the bottom one down and the top one up. Now add a quote if you wish. i added cheers and applied EC4 chrome liquid metal at default, colorized it and added a gradient glow. Add your name license number and artist URL. Now off to animate if you liek. close off all the layers set aside for the frame backgrounds , background and masked layer. you should have all 5 promoted layers open as well. to keep sanity :) close the top four layer now to keep track of what you are doing. Merge visible and paste the copy onto animation shop. Repeat this until all the water layers have be copied to AS. Now close those layers all down and open the rest of the tag up. apply constellations to the glitter layer at these settings below, copy and paste to as a new animation.Come back to PSP and unmerge visible and undo the constellation. Apply constellations again but change the seed. repeat pasting . Repeat until you have 5 frames. in AS Copy all on the background layers then copy all on the other animations. Then copy and paste into selected frames the rest of the tag. Select all and change the frame properties to 20. Save as a GIF .Thanks for checking out my tut
