Rosez and Skullz

This tutorial was written on July 25, 2013. Any similarity to any other tut is purely coincidental. I use PSP X5, but you should be able to do this in any version. This tutorial includes both animated and non-animated instructions.









You Will Need:
Tube of choice. I used the one included in the kit.
PTU kit Rosez and Skullz from Crystals Creations.  
Template: Number 10 from Pink at Just Like Candy Designs.  
Mask: 360 from WSL
Animation Shop
Terms to Know:
C&P-Copy and paste
SAFDI-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat>Invert
SAFD-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat
DS-Drop Shadow (The settings I used for all my DS layers were: 3, -3, 50, 5, black)
Crop to Selection- Ctrl+a on the layer below the one you just pasted a paper (or object) on. Back to the paper (or object) and Shift+r.
Center in Canvas- Objects>Align>Center in Canvas
Apply Mask- Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image and choose your mask.
Add Noise- Image>Add/Remove Noise>Add Noise (My default settings are Gaussian, 50%, Monochrome)

All instructions regarding tubes assume you are using the same tube I did. If you use a different one, adjust size/placement accordingly.

©  Open your template. Shift+d to duplicate. Close original, Delete credit layer. Open PP12, C&P, Drag below Purple Circle. Open and apply mask, resize 111%, Center in Canvas, Merge Group.
©  Purple Circle: SAFDI. Open PP4, C&P, Delete, Select None. Effects*3D Effects*Inner Bevel with these settings:

©  Left Sq: Open PP7, C&P, resize 47%, place over the Left Sq. Activate Left Sq, SAFDI. Back on paper, Delete and Select None. Duplicate, Drag above Right Sq and place the paper over it. Merged Down, activate the original pp7, Merge Down.
©  Center Circle: Flood Fill with color of choice, Add Noise. SAFD. Activate Green Right Square, erase on the left side inside the marching ants. Activate Green Left Square, erase on the right side inside the marching ants (the circle is now both over and under each square).
©  Green Right Square: Flood Fill with color of choice, Add Noise. Repeat with Green Left Square.
©  Purple Circle: SAFD. Activate Right Green Square and erase the right side inside the marching ants. Activate Green Left Square and erase the left side inside the marching ants. Select None.
©  Right Sq: Open EE37, C&P, resize 73% and place over the rectangle. Change layer properties to Screen.
©  Left Sq: Open EE18, C&P, resize 123%, and place over the rectangle. Change layer properties to Screen.
©  Green Left Sq: Open EE16, C&P, place in lower center.
©  Open EE11, C&P, resize 51%, place where you like it.
©  Green Right Sq (GRS): Open EE40, C&P, resize 48%, Duplicate, Flip Horizontal, and place slightly above and to the right of the original (so it looks like the stems are connected). DS, Activate original ee40, DS, back to duplicate layer, Merge Down. Place on the upper right of the frame. Activate GRS, SAFD. Back on cherries, erase a bit of the back cherry’s stem (so it looks like it’s draped over the frame).
©  Open EE1, C&P, Free Rotate right 30 degrees. If you are not animating, place it where you like it behind the girl, and move on to the next step. If you are animating, just open the element and minimize it. Skip to the next step.
©  Select your Text Tool and write your name. I used Mya Rose, 200 pt, 1 pt stroke. Place it where you like it, convert to raster, SAFD, Expand 3, Layers*New Layer, drag below text, flood fill with stroke color, Add Noise. Back on text DS with these settings: 1,1,50,5,black, Merge Down.
©  Add DS to any layers you want. Add the kit name and designer (like you would CR info) and you’re done (if you’re animating, move to the next section)! Thanks for using my tut J!
Animation Steps
©  Open up EE1. Copy and paste as new animation in AS. Right click and Insert 5 blank frames before frame 2:

(the pic says 6, but just do 5)Delete the frame with the rose in it. This will make sense later. This animation will be referred to as Animation 1.
©  Back in PS, Using your free selection tool, go around the rose. Make sure you get all of the rose and none of the petals.


Ctrl+f will bring the selection tight around your rose.


Promote selection to layer.
©  Back on the original repeat the steps for each petal: Select around one petal, Ctrl+f, promote. Start with the petal closest to the rose and work your way down. The first petal should end up being named Promoted Selection 1. I will refer to these as ps1, ps2, ps3, and ps4.
©  Activate the promoted rose layer, copy. In AS, paste as new animation. Animation*Rotate*right 30 degrees. Copy this animation and go to Animation 1, Select all frames, be sure “propagate paste” is active, and paste the rose in the upper right:


©  In PS select ps1, copy it and in AS paste as new animation. Pasting each layer as a new animation allows us to keep proportions correct. Copy this animation and go to Animation 1. Select frames 2-6. Paste the petal where you like it (into selected frame). Here is where I put it:
              

©  In PS, select and copy ps2. Paste as new animation in AS and copy. In Animation 1, select frames 3-5 and paste into selected frame where you like it.


©  In PS, select and copy ps3. Paste as new animation in AS and copy. In Animation 1, select frames 4-5 and paste into selected frame where you like it.


©  In PS, select and copy ps4. Paste as new animation in AS and copy. In Animation 1, select frame 5 and paste into selected frame where you like it.


©  In PS, Layer*New Layer, drag to bottom and Flood Fill White (AS doesn’t like DS. A background helps with this). Hide the girl and all layers above her. Copy Merged and paste in AS as new animation. Duplicate the frame so you have a total of 5. Go to Animation 1, select all frames, copy. In the new animation, select all frames and paste into selected frame. Place it about where you would like it. Animation*Frame Properties and change it to 60.


©  In PS, Unhide the hidden layers and hide the unhidden ones. Copy Merged and paste in AS as new animation. Copy and paste into your nearly complete animation. Place where you like it. Run animation to be sure you are happy with it.

©  Save as .gif with default optimization settings, and you’re done!
