Morning Glory


I am using the lovely artwork of Emerald de Leeuw. To use her art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrap kit is by the talented Sabre and is a freebie called Morning Glory. You can pick it up HERE. The mask is part of this gorgeous kit.

Plug-in used is Xenofex 2- Constellation (optional)

Let's get started!

Open a new image 600x600 and floodfill with white.

Copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer. I used paper 2. Apply the morning glory mask included in the kit to this paper layer. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disc. Merge group and duplicate the mask layer. Merge the two masks together.

Resize the lacy element 85 percent and copy and paste as a new layer over your mask. Resize the morning glory frame 70% and copy and paste as a new layer. Take your freehand selection tool (lasso) and draw a circle with it through the frame to catch all the ins and outs of the morning glories. Copy and paste a paper of choice over your selection. I used morninglorypaper2. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard and bring the paper under the frame.

 Copy and paste your tube. Erase parts needed so she is inside the frame on the bottom and above at the top of the frame.

Resize the vine 85% and move this under your frame layer and to the left of it so it shows some. Duplicate the vine and mirror. Add the bows to the frame if desired and any other elements of choice. I used the butterfly and single morning glory.

Resize the ribbon 70% and copy and paste it at the bottom of your frame. Crop and resize your tag to your preference, and add your copyright info, watermark and name. The font I used is SilkenScarf.


Animation (optional)

Xenofex 2 constellation.

Make the lacy element active in your layers pallete. Apply constellation to it with the following settings:



Copy your tag merged into animation shop and paste as a new animation. Back to PSP and undo the constellation and reapply it, this time hitting the random seed button. Copy your tag merged to animation shop and paste it after current frame. Repeat this process one more time. Run your animation and save as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
