Beauty and the Beast



Remember, my tutorials are a guideline only, let your imagination free.

Materials needed:
A scrapkit from A space between

A tube or image of choice
I chose one from ©Simona Candini  @ www.mytubedart.com

Let's begin
The scrapkit is really large so we have to resize a lot.
Sharpen when you feel it is needed.
I started big with a new image 800x800

Copy element26, paste as a new layer.
Resize 35%, Resize 60%

Copy element5, paste as a new layer.
Resize 35%, Resize 60%

Copy element4, paste as a new layer.
Resize 25%, Resize 60%
Move to the right bottom of the frame.
Layers duplicate, mirror.
Merge these 2 layers, move this layer behind the frame layer.
Keep this layer active.

Copy element3, paste as a new layer.
Resize 35%
Move a little to the right.
Duplicate this layer, mirror and merge these 2 layers.

Activate the frame layer.
Copy element15 and paste as a new layer.
Resize 35%, resize 60%.
Move to the bottom left corner of the frame.
Layers duplicate, image mirror, merge these 2 layers together.

Copy element38 and paste as a new layer.
Resize 35% and again 35%.
Move a little to the left ( see my tag for positioning )

Copy element9 and paste as a new layer.
Resize 35% and again 35% and then again with 60%
Move to the bottom left corner of the frame.
Layers duplicate, image mirror.
Merge these 2 layers.

Copy element36 and paste as a new layer.
Resize 35% and again with 35%.
Move it into the middle of the red roses.

Copy element8 and paste as a new layer.
Resize 35%, again with 35% and 60%.
Move it to the middle of the red roses but move it a bit more down
( see my tag for positioning )

Now it's time to add your image/photo, you can use a tube too, choose a paper instead and then add your tube.
Activate the frame layer.
Select the inside of the frame with your magic wand, 
selections expand 8 pixels.
Make a new layer beneath your frame layer.
Copy your image and paste into selection**

**Be careful when pasting images or photos into selection, they may get deformed or stretched
and it doesn't look very pretty.
This image I used is deformed slightly but it still looks ok.
If your photo or image doesn't fit that frame you just paste your image/photo as a new layer underneath the frame layer, selections invert and hit delete.

Give everything a dropshadow you like, Crop your image merged opaque, 
Add the correct ©info, your license number and name after you have resized
Save as JPG or export as PNG
