6. Open up the misted
tube that from "My Misted World". Right click and copy, go to your chalked
background, right click and paste as a new layer. Note: Notice on the misted tube when you pull it up in PSP that it has 2 layers
to it, close off the layer with the words on it so when you copy it, you will
only get the part that you need.
WOW it looks pretty all ready. But you're not done yet.
7. Let's extend our
path. Make sure you are on your tube
layer. The first thing I did was take a
color from the tubes path used my chalk again and from just a little beyond the
gate I started working the path towards the end of my canvas. When I was happy with how it looked I
converted the art media to a raster and renamed it path 1. I then smudged the path until I was happy with
8. I then took a
lighter color from the path and once again used my chalk tool and placed in
streaks of chalk to give it the appearance of the tube's original path. Once happy with that I converted it to a
raster and renamed it Path2. I smudged
in the streaks so it looked more like the original path.
Let's start adding some flowers to our painting.
1. Right above the
path2 layer add a new raster layer, rename it and call it flower1.
2. Now taking the brushes
that you made let's start adding some flowers to our creation. I used colors from the original tube for my
paint and choose brushes that I have made.
3. But now I would
really like to add some color to the back of it as well so it appears the same
flowers are growing behind the fence. This is how I achieved that look. I added a new raster and named it flower2 and drug it down underneath
the lighthouse layer (or the tube). Make
sure the flower2 layer is active and then start adding flowers. Play with this for a minute as long as the
flower2 layer is active (blue) you can place the flowers over top of the
lighthouse behind the fence and they will go behind that tube. Like so: Note you can hit your back key and delete
what you don't like.
Hopefully I think by now you see why layers are important
and naming them helps you find what your working on, that way if you don't like
something you have done you just delete that layer and add a new one to start
over. It beats starting the entire
Okay my flowers look great what else do I want to add. Well this is where you get to have some
fun. You can drop a shadow if you want
to your flowers. I don't like it so I
didn't it makes the picture to dark for
me. When you're all finished playing with
it remember to merge it all visible and export it as a jpeg.
Finish your project and place a nice frame around it and
send it to the group so we can all admire it. Don't forget to add your watermark or your name. I finished mine all up I hope you like it.
