Eclipse II

Feel free to use my tutorial in any way you would like. Although it is my ideas that will guide you, please feel free to do whatever you choose with it!

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed supplies:

Scrap Kit of choice or the one I am using. This kit is by Pimp'd Designz and can be purchased at Sophisti-Scraps called Eclipse Combo Pack by Cora's Creations.

Masks of Choice: the masks I used came from Chelle under downloads. Her site can be found here.

I used WSL_236.

Image of choice. My image is by David Desbois. You can visit his deviantart site here. I have permission from him to use his artwork in my tutorials.

Plugins: If so desired I used EyeCandy4000, Gradient Glow which is no longer available but you can substitute EyeCandy 6.

Open all supplies needed for this tutorial. Add the mask to your mask file or open them in PSP.

Open cc-eclipse-frame-01, Shift+D to duplicate the frame which will be the working layer. Image, Canvas Size, change to 600x600, center the image. Starting at the bottom add a new layer and flood fill with white. Add cc-pp-08 and move to the right. Apply WSL_236 to the paper layer. Merge group. Resize by 85% and then using your crop tool, crop to the tops of the mask layer, then Image, Canvas size 600x425 or so.

Add cc-pp-05 and then using your selection tool, make a box shape around your frame layers. Layers, invert and hit delete on your keyboard.

Add tube/image to the left 2 frames. See below for misting.

Misting an image is very easy. Using your magic wand, freehand selection, use these options:

Click on the image and choose Promote Background Layer. Now, start anywhere in the image you want to begin. What you are going to do is left click to place the pointer and then move the line to the next point and click again to make a rough cutout of the portion of the image you would like to mist. When you are done, right click and the selection will be made. Then, hit delete on your keyboard once or twice to feather the image around it.

Duplicate the step above for the other image on the right side of the frame. Merge down with the other misted tubes, then duplicate. On the bottom layer, Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur 6. Change both layers opacity to Luminance.

Add your elements of choice. See tag for exact placement and resize as necessary. I added:

cc0glitter-splash to the center, and it should be just above the mask layer.
cc-cloud moved down a bit so it is peaking out the bottom of the frame.
cc-rose centered above the chess piece.
cc-key-charms above the frame layers, centered around the chess piece. Erase a small portion of the ring to make it appear as if it is hung on the chess piece.
cc-raven to the right top of the frame.
cc-sparkle centered over the frame layer.

Add any other elements of your choice. Drop shadow your layers and merge them where you would like.

Add your copyright at this time.

Add your text of choice. I used Pea Candace you should be able to find it via google. I also added a drop shadow to my text.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Please feel free to send me your results!
