CT Tut for Amy Marie: Samaelia Kit

This tutorial was written on September 26, 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.

You Will Need:
Tube of choice. I used Speak No Evil by Michele Ann. You must have a license to use this tube. You can find it here.
PTU kit Samaelia from Amy Marie . You can pick it up here.
Template: Timeline Template 1 from Allison'sAddictions
Font: Diane deFrance. 120 pt, no stroke.
Terms to Know:
C&P-Copy and paste
SAFDI-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat>Invert
SAFD-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat
DS-Drop Shadow (All my DS layers are 5, 5, 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.
