Nature's Goodies Tutorial (FTU Scrapkit!!)

Supplies used:
Tube by Zindy S.D. Nielsen. I bought this particular tube from MPT but they have since closed. You can buy Zindy's tubes from her indie site HERE.

FTU scrapkit by my girl Tasha called The Goodies Garden. You can get it on her blog Tasha's Playground.

AlienSkin Xenofex 2 (constellation) (This is just for the could always use a sparkle tube or just skip the step )


Ok let's get started

Open a new canvas size 500 by 500

C/P Frame 3. Rotate frame layer 90 degrees. Resize by 50%

C/P Grass 2.  Resize by 75%. Position so that is just overlapping the bottom of the frame.

C/P your tube. I resized mine by 75%. Position towards the bottom corner of the frame.

 C/P grass. Resize by 75%. Duplicate 2 time for a total of 3. Position as desired so it looks like it is going up the side of the frame.

 C/P Branch. Resize by 30% Position UNDER the grass shoots. Duplicate, Mirror. Move back under the grass.

C/P Branch 2. I used manual color correction on just the flowers. (or there is an element that has pink flowers already if you prefer.) Duplicate 2 time for a total of 3 and position as desired. 

Click on your tube. Use your lasso tool to select around just the flower of the tube. I used manual color correction to change it to match the pink flowers.

Using your lasso tool select just the wings. Again use manual color correction. The wings were a bit bright for my liking so I adjusted the brightness/contrast with these settings...

KEEP SELECTED!! Now add Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Constellation with the following settings...


Add drop shadow to tube and flower layers. I used the following settings...

Using your magic wand tool select the inside of your frame layer. Add a new rater layer and move it UNDER your frame layer.

C/P Paper 3 into selection. Deselect and change layer properties to soft light.

Select your bottom layer.

C/P flowers. Effects, Edge effects, Enhance. Resize by 50%. Duplicate as many times as needed and position so they fill the frame and add a nice border around it.

Now add your copyright and watermark.

Type out your font. I used inner bevel with these settings...

Add dropshadow and save :)
