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

A Down Under Christmas

For this tutorial as well as the tag below it I used the Aussie Christmas Collab kit from Stina and Tooty Pup which can be purchased HERE
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Gradiant Glow found in my quick links.
The art of Keith Garvey which can be purchased HERE

Open Frame 1, resize 50% Rorate left.

Open a blank canvas 800x800

Place the frame on to the canvas as a new layer, off center to the left a bit, Duplicate, Mirror, Make sure they appear to look like an open desk frame, you may have to move them around a bit.

Using your selection tool on persepective, drag the bottom of each frame side down a bit so to give it a 3D appearance.

Merge Visable, Apply a drop shadow 5, 5, 100, black, 5

Open the background paper you would like for each side of the frame, place them under the frame and cut of whatever you do not need using the freehand selection tool.

For the left side of my frame I made the paper balck and white by Effects>Photo Effects>Black and White

Apply what eer elemebts you would like inside the frames, I used Christmas Gum 08, Candle 02, deco 7.

Apply all wording and convert to a raster layer.

Effects>Plugins>Eyecandy5>Gradiant Glow. I used the green glow with the settings below.
