My Daughter was born on Feb 14, 2010 and she is wonderfully healthy! Thank you for all the wonderful emails about everything. I just wanted to say that for right now since life has gotten so busy I am working mainly on tags and layouts. There will be the occasional tutorial but not as many as before. I am sorry if this causes any problems, but family comes first! I hope this finds all my followers doing well! Blessed Be! ~Lori

God's Art

For this tutorial I used the 'An Autumn Romance' Kit from Gemini Creationz found HERE
Two beautiful tubes that are PTU from Suzanne Woolcott found HERE
VIX mask #39 & 109 Found HERE (Ohhh the goodies on this site!)
Animation Shop

  • Let's begin
  • First you are going to want to pick three papers. I have the brown, orange and green for my tag.
  • With your middle color paper apply the 109 mask COPY and PASTE as a new layer on your backgound paper, I applied mine twice for a bolder effect.
  • Now with your foreground paper you are going to apply the 39 mask, COPY & PASTE on top of your other papers.... and to make the words stand out a bit, I did a 3,3, 100, 24 black drop shadow.
  • This is where you get creative, I know you are going to chage things up a bit, I used the tree, bench and squirrle from the kit because they worked with what I wanted. I applied drop shadows to everything to make it all pop. And I added my gorjuss girls.
  • After you add your wording, and copyrights you want to MERGE ALL
  • Now for the Animation.
  • I am sure there are other ways to do this, but I stick with what I am comfy with so here we go.
  • OPEN a new image about 400x400 transparent. I did this 3x because I wanted 3 diffrent leaves.
  • Useing the included picture tubes "Autumn leaves" I played around till I found three that I liked, one on each transparent image.
  • With each one you are going to want to COPY and then PASTE them on your tag. You can resize them and rotate them as you would like.
  • *****
  • On this image you are going to COPY MERGED
  • In Animation shop you PASTE AS NEW ANIMATION
  • Move your leaves around, rotate them or what ever you would like and move them down the image.
  • *****
  • Do everything between the *** as many times as you would like for your effect. I used 4 frames.
  • In Animation shop while clicked on your frames hit CTRL+A Then under ANIMATION you can resize if you would like (I used 70%) and you can go to FRAME PROPERTIES and change the speed. I up'ed mine to 40
  • RUN
  • There you go! I hope you had fun tonight =] Blessed Be dear friends and be sure to leave comments!
