Happy Hauntings Tutorial


I wrote this tutorial Sept/08 any resemblence to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
I'm using the artwork of Laura Nicolodi and you can get her work here
The mask I used is from zuzzanna, mask 15. You can find zuzzanna's mask Here
My freebie scrapkit Happy Hauntings which you can download here on my blog.
This tutorial requires a working knowledge of PSP.
Let's get started.
Open a new image 700 X 500 raster image.Flood fill white.
Choose a paper from the kit, shift d to duplicate and close off the original. Resize your copy by 140%, copy and then paste as a new layer on your working image.
Have your mask of choice open and minimized in PSP. Go to layers,new mask layer,from image. Find your mask in the drop down menu,check source luminance and invert mask data checked, click ok. On the layer pallete delete the mask layer and then merge group.
Copy and paste the haunted house onto your working image, resize as needed.
Add any other elements from the kit that you wish. I added a cat, raven and pumpkins. Resize all as needed. Add your tube.For all these images I used a drop shadow of 0,0,50,7 and black.
Add your word art and copyright and you are done.I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

These are the may NOT'S

--No sharing of files, just because you downloaded it doesn't give you the right to share it.

--Do not repackage as greyscale and resell and do not claim as your own
