Magical Workshop


Magical Workshop
written 11/19/2015

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look exactly like mine then use the same supplies that I have used.

Supplies Used:

Tube is an exclusive commission for Scraps and Company store. It is by Chris Pastel and can be purchased at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=305&products_id=15537

The cute and whimsical scrap kit is by Bibi's Collection. It is called Elf Town. It's a great match for the tube. You can purchase it alone at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=15541 or you can get a great bundle deal of the tube and the scrap kit together at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=305&products_id=15543. The bundle is on sale for $1.50 right now. You can't beat that.

Mask of your choice. I am using mask #158 from insatiable dreams. You can get her masks at http://insatiabledreams.net

Font of your choice. I am using Happy Sans. You can get it at http://www.dafont.com/happy-sans.font

Plugins:
NONE

Let's Begin:
Open element 119 from the kit and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Re-size by 85%.
Make your canvas large enough to give you room to work with.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame and go to selections modify and expand by 8.
Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame.
Open paper 1 and copy and paste into selection.
Selections modify and contract by 7.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and position within the frame.
I chose to use the tube that was cut off on the right side so that she would be peeking out from that side.
Once you have your tube placed use your eraser tool to erase any bits of the tube outside of the frame that you do not want to be part of the tag.
Selections select none.
Add a drop shadow to both the frame and the tube.
Open paper 6 and copy and paste as a new layer and drag to the bottom.
Apply the mask of your choice.
Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Add a slight drop shadow to your mask layer but do not make it too dark.
Open element 15 and re-size so it will fit nicely in front of the bottom of the frame on the left side.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 11 and re-size so it will fit nicely on the left hand side of the cottage.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 42 and re-size so it will fit nicely along the bottom of the tag.
Copy and paste as a new layer and place in front of the cottage and going along the bottom.
Add a slight drop shadow.
Open element 13 and re-size so it will fit nicely along the bottom of the tag also.
Copy and paste as a new layer and drag behind the first snow layer, the cottage and the reindeer.
Make sure it is peeking up behind the first snow and is in front of your tube.
Open element 20 and re-size so it will fit nicely behind the tube and the cottage.
Open element 19 and re-size so it will fit nicely along the right side of the frame.
Drag to the bottom but above the mask.
Place it on the right side so the mailbox and letters are peeking out.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 26 and re-size so it will fit nicely in front of the mailbox on the right size.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 90 and re-size so it will fit nicely in the snow at the bottom of the tag.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 115 copy and paste as a new layer and place kind of in the middle of the tag so it looks like it is falling from the lantern the tube is holding.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
