2 Christmas tubes
Drop Shadow = DS = 2,2,50,5 black
900 X 900
1.) EL. 29 -- Frame- Copy and Paste =C&P - as New Raster Layer = NRL-- Place in center and move the frame up a little.
2.) With Magic Wand - Click inside - Selections - Modify- expand - X 5
3.) Paper 10 ( or one of choice ) - C&P as NRL - place over frame -- invert and delete- place paper below frame-- DS on both -- Select None = SN
4.) Tube ( of choice ) --Resize = R = if needed - - C&P as NRL - Duplicate = Dup. - Blur - Gaussian - 6 - Blend Mode = BM = Multiply - Opacity - 75% - Merge Down = MD = DS- with Magic Wand - click on inside of the frame - invert on frame - delete on tube - SN -- OP = 72% - move tube below frame.. now close of bottom layer and Merge Visible = MV - rename layer = Frame
5.) EL. 10 - - C&P as NRL - Place below frame-- move down a little -DS - Tag Reference = TR
6.) EL. 14 - R = 60% - adjust - sharpness - unsharp mask - = USM.-- - C&P as NRL - place it on right side of canvas - above EL10-- DS - EX. 1-- - Dup.- flip - and place it across from the other-- TR- now Dup. again-- And R = 80% continue duplicating and resizing till you are happy with it- MD all these layers and rename it Doodle.
7.) EL. 11 - R = 60% and 80% -- USM -- - C&P as NRL - - place on doodle-- DS - TR - Dup. move to open part of doodle -- EX.2 -- Continue going to left side of doodle--Close out frame and doodle and MV bow layer and then MD to doodle.
8.) EL. 12 - R = 60% and 80% - USM -- - C&P as NRL --- place on left side at bottom -- DS --TR -Dup.- and Mirror-- TR-- MD
9.) EL. 1 -- - C&P as NRL -place on left side -- Dup. - and move this one below doodle layer-- now with freehand selection tool - with these settings -- point to point -- add shift-- feather = 1 - smoothing = 0 - anti -alias - checked - go around the top one only- near the bow -- EX.3 -delete and SN. - DS bottom one.
10.) EL. 15- R = 50% and 80% X2--USM- place lower left side -- DS-- Dup - R = 80% - place on right side -- TR
11.) Tube #2-- C&P as NRL - place it on the right side- I mirrored mine-- now - Dup.- Blur- gaussian - 6
BM = Soft light -- Op.= 100% -- MD -- DS-- TR
12.) EL 21- R= 65 % and 80%- USM- - C&P as NRL - place bottom left-- DS
13.) EL. 22- - C&P as NRL - place on top right-- DS -- TR-- Dup. - mirror- R = 80%-- place below the 1st one--TR-- Keep repeating if you desire.
14.) EL. 26 - R = 60%--- C&P as NRL - place below the frame layer -- Dup.- R = 80% place on both of the left side next to santa. DS
15.) EL. 31-- C&P as NRL - place below poinsetta layer -- do not DS
16.) EL.6 - R = 50% -- USM -- - C&P as NRL -place on right side in front of tube-- DS-- TR
17.) EL. 7 - - C&P as NRL - place on bottom layer -- center-- DS -- TR -- close out bottom layer-- MV all other layers-- R = 56% - sharpen.
18.) Add a paper of choice -- I used ( Paper 9 ) make sure the paper is on bottom-- add mask of choice-- delete mask -- ungroup layers-- then crop -- opaque -- open bottom layer, MV. all layers-
