Check out this AMAZING Collab & Raffle: Escaping Chaos! 

Per each $2 you spend, you will get 2 kits, PLUS 2 tickets for our raffle, up to $10!!

The raffle will be giving away gift certificates for tubes from Artistically Inclined Licensing, and also the personal stores of Ismael Rac, Keith Garvey, Arthur Crowe, Elias Chatzoudis, and others, Buy my Store giveaways, Kit Gift Certificates, handmade items, and so much more!

All proceeds go to help a friend and her children (two of them special needs) get out of an abusive home and into a place of her own. A great woman and friend has been put in a very bad situation, where she and her children are victims of verbal and mental abuse daily. We want to help her to get out of this home, but she has limited income and can not afford a deposit to move into a new place. We are trying to raise enough for her to be able to put a deposit down and also be able to pay for any other expenses that might arise from a sudden move. Please help us raise enough to save her and her three children from anymore emotional anguish!

You can find this as Pimpin' Pspers Warehouse HERE

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open Frame2
Add it to your canvas
Scale down to about 70%
Add a dropshadow

Open PP7
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas and have this below the frame layer
Use your magic wand and select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection and on the paper layer, press delete
Deselect
Duplicate
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines, change the width to 3
Change the blend mode to lighten

Open Frame4
Add to your canvas
Resize down by about 90%, rotate -15 degrees
Arrange beneath your other frame and papers

Open PP5
Add to your canvas
Resize down and position inside one of the frames how you'd like
Use your magic wand and select inside the frame of the two you're working on
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert and on the paper press delete
Deselect
Duplicate
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines, change the width to 3
Change the blend mode to screen

Repeat this same process with the other of the two frames

Add your tube to your canvas.
Resize and reposition as you'd like to above the frames
Once you're happy with the size and position
Erase any of the legs that are still over the silver frame
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom layer
Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All a default except the blue channel, slide to 0
Add a drop shadow here
To the top layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to screen
Lower to opacity to 70%

Add your tube in between the circle frame's papers layers
I flipped one of mine horizontally
Once you're happy with how they look
Erase any of the tubes that are outside the frame
Change the blend modes to luminosity
Duplicate them
On the duplicate
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend modes on these to screen
Lower the opacity of both to 50%

Open PP6
Resize to 600 px by 600 px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the mask here

Now if you're wanting to animate follow the next steps, if not you can do it to add some sparkle or skip it, whatever works for what you'd like to do :)
Hide the very top tube layers along with the white background
Ctrl + A (selects the whole canvas)
Edit → Copy Merged
Paste
You may need to reposition your new layer of the merged image so it's directly over the other
Now Ctrl + click on the thumbnail of this image so that you select just around this one
I added a new layer here a filled the selection with black
Now you can delete our merged image
Duplicate the black layer 3 times so we have a total of 4 layer of them
On the bottom one
Filter → Xenofex 2 → Constellation
For the settings just go over to Settings along the top, small star constellation
Change the Background fill to “make selection transparent”
Click okay
Do this for the other 3 layers, just make sure you click random seed once for each one
Hide all but the very first layer of these for now.

Unhide the two tube layers

Open up Puppy and add to your canvas
Resize and reposition where you'd like to
Once you're happy with this
Add a drop shadow that you'd like
Use the Quick Selection Tool and select just the puppy's nose
Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V
You may need to adjust it's position once again so it's back where it belongs
Duplicate this nose layer twice
Change all three blend modes to vivid light
Merge them together
You may need to do a bit of cleanup and erase little bits around the nose
For now though just hide this layer.

Now we're just going to add the elements we want to, to the tag
Do this to your liking with the drop shadow of choice
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

PineBranch
Snowflake2

Add your name
I short of did a similar style as the Jingle my Bells wordart in the kit

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with your result save to your liking and you're done!

Now if you'd like to animate let's get to that, we're all ready and set

Open your animation window, everything should be ready for frame one if you closed out all the ones I mentioned previously so, add a new animation window
Leave the dog nose hid for now but, hide the first frame of the sparkles and unhide the second frame
Add a new animation layer, hide the second frame and unhide the third frame, unhide the dog nose layer as well
Add a new animation layer, hide the third frame and unhide the fourth frame, leave the dog nose layer as is
Add a new animation layer, hide the fourth frame and unhide the first frame, hide the dog nose layer as well
Add a new animation layer, hide the first frame and unhide the second frame, leave the dog nose layer as is
Add a new animation layer, hide the second frame and unhide the third frame, unhide the dog nose layer as well
Add a new animation layer, hide the third frame and unhide the fourth frame, leave the dog nose layer alone
You should now have 8 layers of animation frames

Now set the delay to .2 sec and set to go forever
Press play and watch the sparkles go and the nose blink

Save as a .gif and you're done!

Open your animation window and have all but the very first frame open on all of them
Add a new layer to the animation window
Hide the first layer of all 4 of the animation and unhide the second layer

Now, if you're wanting to animate we're going to continue on!

Open up your animations

Select all of your frames of both of them and click alt + G
This just selects them all as a group
On the bubbles one, if you're using the animation without the shadow go ahead and add the shadow you used on your tag here.

Now add the bubbles to your tag
Resize and reposition as you'd like to.
Mine I just slightly bigger than the mirror frame
It is positioned just above this frame as well
Close all of the frames except for the very first frame once you're happy with the size and position

Now add the flame
Rotate is Counter Clockwise 90 degrees
Have this just above your candle 1 layer
Resize and reposition so it looks like it's on the wick of one of the candles
(I did the one on the left first since it's just slightly bigger of the two)
Once you're happy with how that looks
Duplicate this and move it over to the other wick and resize it so it's just a bit smaller
Hide all of the frame except for the first one of each

Now open up your animation window
have it set to go forever and the delay set to .1
Add a new layer and hide the first layer and unhide the second layer of each of them
Add a new layer and hide the second layer and unhide the third layer of each of them
You're going to continue this until you have all of the layers done.

For the flames, there is not as many as there is bubbles, just revere the frames and go back down once you're to the top.

Once all the bubbles are done I didn't like how it just sort of ended and started over so I duplicated all the frames and of the new ones I reversed the animation

Press play to watch it go.

If you're happy with the result save as a .gif and you're done!
