Tutorial for “Keep Cool” tag
What I used:
Kit called “Keep Cool” by Lady Saphira, http://yourscrapaddiction.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_127&products_id=2695 (tag size)
Cookie poser by Lisa of Sophisticated Scraps http://sophisticatedscraps.blogspot.com
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4 (Make sure “show transform controls” is checked for easy resizing of elements.)
What I did:
Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use Circular selection tool to create a circle & fill with background of choice (paper 1).
Choose elements to fit your vision. I used tree, sun chair, hat, ice 3, butterfly 4, and shells 1,2,3. Copy & paste each element, resizing as needed & positioning as desired. Copy & paste your poser of choice (Lisa cookie 4), positioning as desired.
Use font of choice for desired text. I used a cute sandcastle font 12 (http://www.ellies-treasures.com/fonts/alphadings-seasons/alphadings-seasons.html) for main text & name. I used a small font (Arial 3) for tag information.
Merge visible & save.
