Happy Halloween 2011

"Happy Halloween"

What you need:

Tubes of choice, I used artwork by Elias Chatzoudis
Photos could also be used (Refer to example #2)

Font of choice, I used Oh {Photo} Shoot!

Graphic Program of choice, I use PSPX2

Let's Begin!

1. Open a new transparent image
Open all of your supplies

2. Open the papers of choice
Using your selection tool, rounded rectangle, create a small round rectangle
Promote background layer
Crop to selection
If this size works for you, use it as a template for your other paper
by C/P as a new selection to the other papers, delete template paper layer and then crop to selection
Do the same steps for the second layer of papers
Add drop shadows as needed
Rotate how you wish or not at all

3. Open a new transparent image
Type any saying, I used BOO!
Cut and paste the word as a new selection back on the transparent image
Crop to selection
Merge all layers visible
Select your airbrush tool and choose a pattern instead of a color
Find the word pattern you just created
Using the airbrush tool, find a size you like. I used 16
Move the mouse around creating a messy shape behind the paper layers
Remember it doesn't need  to be perfect, the messier the better

4. C/P the photos or tubes of choice
Add drop shadow as needed
Rotate as needed
C/P the ribbon of choice

Add any wording, name and copyright info as needed
And you're done!
