My Happy Garden


I am using the adorable art work of Suzanne Woolcott. To use her art you must purchase a license at Gorjuss Art HERE. I am using a cute FTU scrap kit called My Happy Garden by Paci and you can pick it up HERE. Mask is by WeeScotLass and you can get it HERE. My supplies HERE.


Let's get started!

Open my template in PSP. Add a new raster layer and drag it to the bottom of your layers palette. Floodfill with white. Take you magic wand and click inside the large black circle. Copy and paste a paper of choice over the selection. Selections-Invert- hit delete on your keyboard. Delete the black circle layer. Do this procedure with each piece of the template, using papers of your choice from the kit. See my tag for reference. Drop shadow all pieces of the template.

Activate your white background layer and copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer. I used paper5. Apply WSL_Mask 254 to the paper layer. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group. Stretch the mask with your raster deform tool to your preference.

Resize the grass 18% and copy and paste as a new layer, place inside the frame, and erase any overhang.

Resize the tree 30% and copy and paste as a new layer, the sun 8%, and the clouds 15%. Resize flowers of choice 15%, 12%, and 10% and add them to your "happy garden". Add any other elements you like. I used the leaf doodle, the lady bug and a bird. Drop shadow your elements. I used 2/2/50/5. Crop your tag and resize it to your liking. Add your copyright info, watermark and name.

Animation (Optional)

Copy your tag merged into animation shop. Open the  animated butterfly in my supplies. Duplicate your tag so it has 15 frames. Activate your butterfly. Edit-select all-edit-copy. Activate your tag. Edit select all- edit- paste into selected frame.

Run your animation and save as a gif!
