Xero – Porcelain
Xero – Radiance

~~~Let's get Started~~~
Open a new canvas 600px by 600 px.
Flood fill with white.

Open frame3
Copy and paste into your canvas.
Scale down by 50% and rotate -10 degrees.
Reposition to the upper left of your canvas.
Duplicate this layer.
Rotate by 25 degrees and position in the lower left of your canvas just slightly over lapping the first frame.

Open pp2.
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas
Drag this layer below your frames.
Using your magic wand selecting inside each of your frames
Select inverse and press delete on your paper layer.
Add a Drop Shadow to your two frames.

Open your tube.
Copy and paste into your canvas.
Resize and position it behind the first frame we put up until it's to your liking
Duplicate this layer and flip horizontal.
Resize and position behind the second frame
Once you're happy with their position
Ctrl + Click the tumbnail of the frame background to select it
Select inverse and on each of your tube layers click delete.
Erase any parts that may have overlapped both frames.
Change the blend mode to luminostiy and the opacity to 50% on each of them.

Copy and paste your tube into your canvas again.
This time it's going to go above your frames.
Resize and position as desired.
Filter ---> Xero ---> Porcelain
All at default except the blue channel, set at 0.

Filter ---> Xero ---> Radiance
Use your own settings here.
Something subtle that just brights up the tube a bit.

Fitler ---> Sharpen ---> Unsharp Mask
At default settings.

Add a drop shadow.

Open pp1.
Resize to 600px by 600px.
Copy and paste into your canvas.
Drag this layer to just above the white background
Apply your mask.

Now we're going to add the elements with a Drop shadow.
Do so to your liking but, to do the animation make sure you add couldron to your tag.
Also resize and position to your liking as well

I used the following with a drop shadow:

In between my mask and frame back layers:

smoke1 (I added a bit of a white outer glow to this one as well to help it pop a bit)

Now above the frame and tube layers I added the following with a drop shadow:
Flower 1 (duplicate)
Branch2 (on this one position so it looks like rose leaves and then erase the parts that are extra, duplicate and rotate around and place this behind the duplicated flower1)
spell books

Add your name to your tag.
Image ---> Trim
Top left Pixel color, all boxes checked.
Reisize if you'd like to.

*****Most Important****
Add your copyright info!!!

Now We're going to focus on the animation!
Go to your cauldron layer.
Duplicate it 2 times so you have 3 cauldrons.
Hide the top two layers.
Take your smudge tool.
Get a soft round brush.
I did a size of 13px with the mode at normal and the strength at 50%
go to the 'smoke' in the cauldron and swirl it around, drawing various little swoops outside of it.
Make sure you don't go into the black of the cauldron though since we want that remaining the same!
Do that with each of your layers.

Go to your animation window and make a 3 layer animation with each of the different cauldrons on the three animation layers.
I did mine to loop forever with the delay at .30 secs.
Press play and when you're happy with your smoke animation
Save it and Wah-lah!
You're done!!

I'd love to see what you've come up with!!
