Cluster Frame TOU

Thank you SO much for being so interested in my cluster frames. I love that you enjoy using them.

However I do have a request, please do NOT credit me as the cluster frame on your tags. Although I assembled it, I do not believe I deserve any such credit. If anything, please list Scrapkit by, (assuming you didn't add other bit by a different designer to your tag of course). I'd prefer not be given credit for simply assembling the cluster frame. Thank you ♥

This is the tag we'll be making and what you'll need:

• Winter Snow scrapkit made by the awesome Missy Lynn, it is available for purchase at Scraps with Attitude.

• I used 3 tube/images by Suzanne Woolcott and they are available in her store, but any tubes/images from the same artist will do also. Please do not use these tubes/images if you do not have appropriate license to do so.

• Mask I used is available at Creative Misfits blog for download there are some fantastic masks, please be sure to check them out and if you download, please say thank you. ♥

• Template I used was by Tracy and it's available at the Freebie Friends blog for download, please say thank you if you download. ♥

• Filters I used were DSB Flux Bright Noise, Super Blade Pro, Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow, and Eye Candy 5 Impact Perspective Shadow.

• Font used was Kingthings Christmas which is available at Dafont for download.

Okay ready, let's go!

• Open up Tracy's fab template, shift and D to make a copy, delete the credits layer, and change the canvas size to 700 x 700 so there's lots of space to work and stuff. I added a layer on the bottom, flood filling with white, so it was easier for me to see what I was doing. On that white background layer, select all, add a new layer, and paste paper of choice into selection on that new layer. I used paper 9, apply mask of choice (I used LDmask 50 from the Christmas mask selection at Creative Misfits). Merge layer group.

• On the rectangle 1 layer, select all, float, defloat, add a new layer and paste paper of choice into that selection. I continued using paper 9 cuz it was so pretty. Select none and delete original rectangle 1 layer. Do these same steps with the rectangle layer.

• Next lets move on to the smaller squares. I used the image portion of 3 different Suzanne Woolcott tubes. On Square 1 paste the image as a new layer, rotate 10 degrees to the left and size down so that most of it fits in that square. On Square 1 layer, select all, float, defloat, invert selections, and on the image layer you just pasted, hit delete. This will remove all the overlap from the square sized layer. Delete the original Square 1 layer. Repeat these same steps with the images of your choice for Squares 2 and 3 (rotate 10 to the right for square 3). Sharpen each of the images after all the re-sizing is done. It's starting to look purdy right?

• The blue is gorgeous but I chose just to colorize a tad to the color of the blue in the image tubes I was using. My colorize code was hue of 144 and saturation of 53, but whatever your preference is. I colorized the blue rectangle and circle and also certain elements as I went. I also colorized the Happy Holidays text, no need to select the red bits, as the other colors are black it won't matter. I re-sized my tag to what I wanted the ending size to be.

• At this time add elements of choice. I used Frame 5 on top of masked layer and used Perspective Shadow to give it a nice blurry shadow. If you don't have the filter, you can tweak your drop shadow settings. I opened up poinsetta 3, colorized with above settings and pasted one above and below the Happy Holidays. Using bow 4, again I colorized and re-sized putting one on each side of the template. Add rest of elements of choice, however you want your tag to look. As I chose to use the tree in the kit, I selected the green portions with my magic wand tool and colorized them to match the blue in the tag. After re-sizing I selected the snow on the tree, duplicated the layer twice so that I have 3 tree layers. Apply DSB Flux to each of the layers, my number was 40.

• Add the artist's copyright and your tagger information to the tag and do your text. I used Kingthing's Christmas for the font and applied Super Blade Pro Coconut Ice and a nice gradient glow and drop shadow.

• Now let's animate! Hide 2 of the tree layers, copy merged and paste as a new animation into Animation Shop. Go back to your PSP, hide that tree layer, and unhide the 2nd tree layer, again copy merged, and paste after current frame into that same animation. Do the same for the 3rd tree layer. Play your animation at this point to make sure that it looks nice. If it does close the optimize and then save. I always optimize and then save as it always tends to look better that way.

Voila! You're now done with this tutorial, I hope you enjoyed!
