The Magic of Dance



Gina aka Kikeka kits has a lovely scrap kit out called Magic of Dance.You can click on either the image or the highlighted title above to be taken straight to the kit.

I've made you a freebie quick page to download & I've done 2 tags with accompanying tutorials.



Tutorial for “Reach For Your Dreams” tag

What I used:
Lovely scrap kit from KiKeKa Kits called Magic of Dance

Poser by Lassie’s Designs http://lassiesdesigns.com (I used a PTU poser from her club membership; please do not use this poser without purchasing it. Lassie also offers an amazing selection of FTU posers.)
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4 (make sure “show transform controls” is checked for easier resizing of elements).

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use the circular selection tool to create a circle & fill with the background of your choice (paper 3).
2. Choose one of the ballerina silhouettes (ballerina 1), copy & paste, positioning a little of center & resizing as necessary. Adjust opacity to 60%.
3. Select other elements (light, beads), copy & paste, resizing as needed & positioning as desired.
4. Copy & paste your poser/tube of choice (LDmct40b), resizing if needed & positioning as desired. Apply bevel & emboss effect so poser/tube stands out a bit.
5. Choose your font & enter your desired text. (I used Freebooter 18.) Remember to use a small font to enter tag information like poser creator, license number if applicable, & tag creator.
6. Merge visible & save.

Tutorial for “Magic of Dance” tag 2

Poser by Lassie’s Designs http://lassiesdesigns.com (I used a PTU poser from her club membership; please do not use this poser without purchasing it. Lassie also offers an amazing selection of FTU posers.)
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4 (make sure “show transform controls” is checked for easier resizing of elements).

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use the circular selection tool to create a circle & fill with the background of your choice (paper 7).
2. Choose a background element (violin), copy & paste, resizing as needed & positioning approximately at center of tag, adjusting the opacity to 65% or whatever looks good with your choice of background paper.
3. Choose other elements (piano, butterflies). Copy & paste each element separately, resizing as needed, & positioning as desired. Make whatever creative choices seem appropriate. For example I allowed the piano keyboard to overlap the circle without trimming & then applied a bevel & emboss effect. I duplicated & mirrored the butterflies.
4. Copy & paste your poser/tube of choice (LDmc10b9b), resizing as needed & positioning as desired. Apply a bevel & emboss effect.
5. Use font of choice to enter desired text. In this case I used Babylon 14 with a Fruit Cocktail bevel 3 from Krissy’s Scraps applied. Use a smaller size font to enter tag information.
6. Merge visible & save.

While I used cu PTU poser tubes from Lassie's membership club, she also has an extensice collection of pu FTU poser tubes that is well worth any taggers time to check out!
