Tubes - 2 tubes of choice
Let's get started
1.) Iron Fence -Copy and Paste = C&P --- as new raster layer = NRL - place in center of tag. - DS - you might have to duplicate = Dup. and mirror, do this until your fence goes directly across your canvas.
2.) Creepy Tree--Some of these tubes are by "Belles Graphics " Please do not share them unless you have Becky's permission.-(to do so, would be not following her tou's )

4.) Tombstone 2 = Resize = R. = 50% - Sharpen = Unsharp Mask= USM - C&P as NRL- place in center - DS & TR
5.) Tombstone - R = 50% X2 - USM - C&P as NRL- place on right side - move layer below fence layer - DS & TR
6.) Physco house - R= 54% & 80% X2 - USM - C&P as NRL- mirror and place on right side top. Move layer right above bottom layer - close off bottom layer.
7.) Grass - C&P as NRL- place on bottom - Dup. mirror and Merge Down = MD. move layer right below house--Dup. and Flip - bring down - MD - TR - continue making enough grass as you need..
8.) Click on bottom layer- add a NRL - flood fill -with 000000 (black) rename sky

10.) Witch Table - R = 50% - USM - C&P as NRL-place on grass - move layer below witch TR - Don't DS for now.
11.) With Ellipse tool - draw a circle - nice size one - Example in Supplies - when don Convert to raster layer-- with magic wand click on inside of circle
12.) Selection - modify - expand 6 - C&P as NRL- paper 1 ( or of your choice) invert on circle - delete on paper- Select none-
13.) If you want to animate- continue to do these steps. If not skip line #14
14.) 2nd Tube - C&P as NRL- place under circle - and erase any sticking out of circle, try to center the picture where you can see almost all of the tube - DS & TR
15.) Still working on the Crystal Ball - (merge the 2 Down) with Ellipse tool - Material (create on vector) line style - straight- width - 5 - anti - alias- checked. draw a decent circle around image - then go to- effects -EC5 Impact - glass - settings - Clear with reflection -now delete your elipse layer. Dup. Crystal Ball and then close- on duplicate you want to R = 15% USM - make it fit on the crystal ball- once done --Merge Down - MD
16.) Black cat - R = 50% USM.. - C&P as NRL - place on bottom left - DS - Dup. R = 80% - mirror - place on center fence - move layer below tree layer-- TR
17.) Candy Bucket - R = 50% & 80%X2--USM -- C&P as NRL - Place it on center bottom.
18.) Cat on Pumpkin - R = 50% X2 - USM - - C&P as NRL -Place it on right side bottom center--DS--TR- Dup. move this one left top side center - move layer below fence layer.
19.) Cauldron R= 50% USM - - C&P as NRL -move to left side - TR & DS
20.) Ghost - R = 50% USM - - C&P as NRL -place on right side- DS & TR - Dup. R = 50% - mirror - and move lower - TR
21.) Halloween lights - R = 50% USM - C&P as NRL - place on fence - from left to right - Dup.-move it over to other side ,ande next to other one. - Dup. one more time = 4 layers - merge these down to each other once happy crop to fit - opaque = 900X900--DS & TR
22.) Jack -C&P as NRL - place on left side - DS & TR
23.) Mummy - R = 50% & 80% X 2-C&P as NRL -DS - place on center bottom - move beklow crysatl ball layer - TR - mirror - Dup. R= 80% place this one on top center - TR
24.) Spider Web - R =50% USM-C&P as NRL -(DS) place on right side of house - TR = Dup. -R= 50% sharpen--place on bottom of tree - TR - Dup. and mirror - place it on fence.
25.) Witch - R = 50% USM - C&P as NRL -- place on bottom left side--DS & TR
26.) Vamptini - R = 50% X 2 - USM -C&P as NRL - place this one in front of center - DS & TR - Dup. - R = 80% place on crystal ball table in front --TR
27.) Scary Butterfly - R = 50% USM-C&P as NRL -place on top right - DS & TR -- free rotate - left 25 -- Dup. R =80% - mirror - place on bottom left.
28.) Sparkle - place on bottom - move layer right above sky - =Opacity 80%--MD
29.) Go ahead and Merge Vivible all layers below the CB layer -- Now R = 56% = 504 X 504 - Sharpen - now add all thr copy right info and then name-- if you do not wish to animate-delete the CB layer and Merge Visible and then save as PNG.
TO Animate keep going.
30.) let's get started....-on the layers below the CB layer rename them "Bottom" Now working on the top layer - with your Preset shape tool, and with colors to accent your tube, draw an arrow-the examples for all these should be in my files..
31.) DS and rename them R=Arrows - convert to raster layer
32.) Now open CB and close - orginal-- open arrows on bottom
GO To Animation shop- copy as new rastrer layer and paste into AS.
Repeat this by opening the close area as well --TR
do this for a 3 frame tag-- when happy-change frame properties to 45-- view and when happy saves as 80%
thank you for looking at my finished tuts.
