Angel FTU

I did this Memorial for our  2nd child..Candace Mae..Even though she lived a short while, she touched alot of People..
Candy as we called her was born with a rare metabolic disorder. When she was born,the Specialist had only been working on this Disorder for 10 years,and what made it Rare for her,she was the 1st. little girl born with it..the Ugly name is "Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Deficiency Disorder" We had 3 Blessed years with Candy, she enriched our lives,and changed our views about alot of things...Candy loved fast cars,and AC/DC music, and when her Aunt Tricia used to swing her on the swing her Grandma bought her.. she is sorely missed...Love you sweety

1.) Frame 1-- C&P as NRL--place  in Center.
2.) With Freehand selection tool--point-to-point--add (shift)--feather= 0 --smoothing = 0 ---anti-alias-checked.
go around frame..
3.) Paper 2--or one of your choice-- C&P as NRL--place over frame--invert on frame--delete on paper -- Keep Selected, move paper below frame--

6.) Move frame (merged layer) to upper left hand corner-- TR
7.) C&P 2nd Tube/Photo--as NRL--mirror and place it on bottom right corner.  
8.)  If you followed the instructions on adding your pattern--were going to go to materials properties--pattern--look for angel cry 4 --angle/0  scale/100
9.) With  Ellipse tool in Preset shapes--create on vector--retain style--anti-alias checked--line style--solid  width=20--draw out a circle-- then convert to raster layer..
10.) Repeat line2--C&P =Paper23--as NRL--place in center of circle--invert on circle--delete on paper-move below circle frame-KEEP SELECTED--
11.) C&P 2nd tube/photo--place under circle--delete on tube/photo..Select none---now duplicate tube/photo--blur gaussian 6--blend mode=multiply --- opacity = 80%  md.  --DS all 3--to make it easier--rename your frames--IE: frame 1, frame2---move frame 2 to lower right side...bottom--TR

16.) Clouds 1--C&P as NRL--move to upper right corner--make sure you don't get too close to the edge of your canvas...duplicate--move the dup.. below  wings-- on top erase the area that is over frame 1 (I used the free hand selection tool--same settings--as before-) then opacity = 70%
17.) Doodles 3 --C&P as NRL-- mirror--and place on upper left corner--place above frame 2--- DS duplicate and Mirror--flip--MD--TR
