Plug ins: AAA Frames, foto frame

This tutorial was written using the supplies above.  If you are using a different tube or scrap kit you may need to make adjustments.  I am using a drop shadow of V/H 2 Opacity 50, blur 5, color black through out the tutorial unless otherwise state.

Open a new 600x250 transparent image.

Copy and paste paper of choice.  I am using paper 2, copy and paste as a new layer. 

Add a new raster layer and select all.  Open element 1, copy and close the original.  Edit, paste into selection.  Select none and drop shadow.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer.  Move into the right frame of the window.  Duplicate and mirror.  On the duplicate, change your blend mode to hard light.  Back to the original tube.  Drop shadow.

Open Element 18, copy and close the original.  Select your window layer and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40% and move to the left bottom corner.  Drop shadow.

Open element 10, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 60%.  Move to the right bottom corner. (see mine for placement). Drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror.  Move the duplicate up a little.

Open element 2, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 40% and move to the lower right corner.  See mine for placement.  Drop shadow.

Open element 9, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer, resize 25% and move to the bottom right corner. Drop Shadow.  Duplicate and move the duplicate slightly to the left and down a bit.  See mine for placement.

Open word art, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 40%.  Move to the bottom center of your banner and drop shadow.

Open element 23, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 40%.  Move this under your word art and drop shadow.

Add any other elements you like.  Once happy with your banner, merge visible.

Effect, AAA Frames, foto frame and change the drop down from default to white.  change the width to 5 and click ok.  Using your magic wand, click inside the white part of the frame.  Adjust, add/remove noise, add noise, Gaussian, 100%, monochrome checked.

 Shift + D to duplicate it.  Add your name and copyright on the duplicate.   Save your duplicate as png and your done with the banner.  


Back to the original.  Hit ctrl + Z x4 to remove the border. 

Select your crop tool and change your height and width to 150.  Move the crop box until you find a spot you like.  Hit enter on your keyboard.  Apply the AAA Foto Frame with the same settings as for the banner.  Repeat the steps for the noise.  Add your copyright and initial or name.  Save as png and your done.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.  I would love to see your results.
