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

Winter Wonderland

For this tutorial I used the Woodland Winter kit by Gemini Creationz found HERE
The artwork of Gorjuss found HERE

Open Paper Frame and apply a 4, 4, 100, 12 black drop shadow.
Open your paper of choice (I used 07) and resize to fit the frame. I also duplicated and mirrored so as to make the scene keep going. This required me moving the mirrored image off to the right.
New Raster layer flood filled #008080
Move the blue layer to the bottom.
When clicked on the forest layer change the blend mode to Luminance Legacy
Clicked on your blue layer
Using your freehand selection tool go around the frame, Invert selection, Hit delete
Click on your forest layers and hit delete as well to make sure you have nothing bigger then your frame.
Select none.
Resize 30%
Open Icicles 02 resize 70% Apply under the frame. Drop Shadow. 60% transparancy
Open Deer, resize 50% apply under the ice
Add whatever tube(s) you would like to the inside of the frame.
Copy Merged
Paste into a transparent 800x800 canvas
Apply drop shadow
Open Berries, Bow2 and Acorns, resize all 50%. Resize the Acorns twice.
Starting with the berries add each element to the top corner of the frame, with a drop shadow on each. Berries, then bow and then acorns.
Open owl and resize 50% apply to lower corner with a drop shadow.
Merge Visable
Open Snowtree and place under the frame off center opposite the bow and owl, add drop shadow
Open Wolf resize 50% or more if you would like and place on top of everything else with a drop shadow
Apply text and copyrights
resize and save your tag :)
