 TUBE OF CHOICE & A CLOSE UP 
I USED THE ARTWORK OF ELIAS CHATZOUDIS,

SCRAP KIT OF CHOICE OR KIT I AM USING, HAPPY HALLOWEEN

XERO: RADIANCE EFFECT & EYECANDY GRADIENT GLOW
I DID NOT USE A MASK ON THIS, BUT YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO

OK, LET'S GET STARTED...

OPEN A BLANK CANVAS 700 X 700, YOU CAN EITHER FLOOD FILL WHITE OR LEAVE TRANSPARENT WE WILL CROP & RESIZE LATER IF NEEDED.  OPEN FRAME 4, COPY & PASTE AS NEW LAYER & RESIZE TO YOUR LIKING
OPEN SCENE, COPY & PASTE AS NEW LAYER, RESIZE TO YOUR LIKING & PLACE UNDER FRAME  NOW HIGHLIGHT YOUR FRAME IN THE LAYERS PALETTE ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN CLICK ON YOUR MAGIC WAND, HOLDING DOWN SHIFT BUTTON ON KEYBOARD, CLICK INSIDE EACH OF THE 3 SQUARES OF THE FRAME.  NOW THERE SHOULD BE MARCHING ANTS INSIDE EACH FRAME  GO TO SELECTIONS >MODIFY >EXPAND, AND EXPAND BY 4  NOW HIGHLIGHT SCENE LAYER IN LAYERS PALETTE, GO TO SELECTIONS >INVERT  NOW WITH YOUR ERASER TOOL, ERASE AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME WHERE THE SCENE IS STICKING OUT & UP ALONG THE SIDES, BUT LEAVE THE TOP AS IS. SEE MY TAG FOR REFERENCE,  GO TO SELECTIONS & SELECT NONE

NOW WE ARE GOING TO, AGAIN, HIGHLIGHT YOUR FRAME IN LAYER PALETTE, CLICK ON MAGIC WAND & HOLDING DOWN THE SHIFT BUTTON, CLICK INSIDE EACH OF THE 3 SQUARE FRAMES.  YOU WILL SEE THE MARCHING ANTS AGAIN. GO TO SELECTIONS > MODIFY >EXPAND & EXPAND BY 4.  GO TO LAYERS, NEW RASTER LAYER,  BLEND MODE NORMAL, OPACITY 100%, MAKE SURE LAYER IS VISIBLE IS CHECKED & CLICK OK. LOOK FOR THIS LAYER IN YOUR LAYER PALETTE, IT SHOULD BE THE HIGHLIGHTED ONE. PUT YOUR MOUSE OVER THAT LAYER IN THE LAYER PALETTE & RIGHT CLICK, GO TO ARRANGE & SEND TO BOTTOM.  NOW PASTE YOUR PAPER. MAKING SURE PAPER IS HIGHLIGHTED, GO TO SELECTIONS >INVERT & HIT DELETE ON YOUR KEYBOARD. GO TO SELECTIONS & SELECT NONE 


OPEN THE FILMSTRIP & PASTE ON TOP LAYER & REARRANGE IT NEAR THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FRAME. SEE MY TAG FOR REFERENCE.  WITH FILMSTRIP HIGHLIGHTED, CLICK ON YOUR MAGIC WAND, HOLDING DOWN YOUR SHIFT KEY, CLICK INSIDE EACH OF THE SQUARES ON YOUR FILMSTRIP, AGAIN WITH THE MARCHING ANTS...LOL! GO TO SELECTIONS >MODIFY >EXPAND & EXPAND BY 3.  NOW OPEN & COPY PAPER 12, SELECTIONS >INVERT & HIT DELETE ON YOUR KEYBOARD. GO TO SELECTIONS >SELECT NONE.  GO TO YOUR GREEN PAPER LAYER & MOVE BENEATH THE FILMSTRIP. 


NOW OPEN & COPY YOUR CLOSE UP TUBE, MAKE SURE YOUR PURPLE PAPER LAYER IS HIGHLIGHTED, PASTE THE TUBE & RESIZE TO YOUR LIKING & PLACE IT UNDER THE MIDDLE SQUARE OF YOUR FRAME.  ONCE YOU HAVE THE TUBE WHERE YOU WANT IT HIGHLIGHT YOUR FRAME, TAKE MAGIC WAND & CLICK INSIDE THE MIDDLE FRAME, HIGHLIGHT YOUR TUBE, GO TO SELECTIONS >INVERT & HIT DELETE ON YOUR KEYBOARD.  SELECTIONS >SELECT NONE.  AT THIS POINT A ADDED THE XERO >RADIANCE EFFECT. CHOICE WHATEVER SETTINGS YOU'D LIKE FOR THIS.  I ALSO WENT TO TUBE LAYER IN LAYER PALETTE, RIGHT CLICK & WENT TO PROPERTIES. I CHANGED THE BLEND MODE TO LUMINANCE.  NOW WITH YOUR TUBE STILL SELECTED, GO TO EFFECTS >TEXTURE EFFECTS >BLINDS, SETTINGS I USED ARE: WIDTH 3, OPACITY 30, COLOR: BLACK WITH BOTH BOXES CHECKED.  NOW HIGHLIGHT YOUR PURPLE PAPER LAYER & REPEAT.  NOW HIGHLIGHT YOUR GREEN PAPER & REPEAT AS WELL.  


WITH GREEN PAPER LAYER STILL HIGHLIGHTED, COPY & PASTE YOUR TUBE UNDER THE FILMSTRIP. PLACE TO YOUR LIKING ON THE 2 END STRIPS, LEAVING THE MIDDLE ONES EMPTY FOR NOW.  THE EASIEST WAY I HAVE FOUND TO DO BOTH ENDS IS, PLACE TUBE WHERE YOU WANT IT ON ONE END, RIGHT CLICK OVER TUBE & DUPLICATE,  GO TO IMAGE >MIRROR.  WITH FILMSTRIP HIGHLIGHTED, GET OUT YOUR MAGIC WAND, HOLD DOWN SHIFT ON KEYBOARD & CLICK INSIDE BOTH ENDS.  GO TO SELECTIONS >INVERT & HIT DELETE.  SELECTIONS >SELECT NONE.   NOW ADD YOUR XERO >RADIANCE EFFECTS TO THESE TWO TUBES & DO YOUR BLIND EFFECTS WITH THE SAME SETTINGS AS BEFORE, I ALSO DID THE BLEND MODE TO LUMINANCE (LEGACY) ON THESE.  NOW COPY & PASTE AGAIN YOUR FULL TUBE, PLACE HER ON THE TOP LAYER ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR TAG. AGAIN, SEE MY TAG FOR REFERENCE.

OK, ALL YOU NEED TO DO NOW IS ADD THE ELEMENTS OF YOUR CHOOSING & PLACE THEM TO YOUR LIKING.  I USED ELEMENTS: PUMPKIN 2, 3 & 4, SPARKLES, TEXT, MOON, LEAVES & GHOST.  PLACE THESE TO YOUR LIKING, USE MY TAG FOR PREFERENCE.  ON THE TEXT ELEMENT I ADDED THE GRADIENT GLOW TO IT.  AND THAT IS IT.  IF YOU ARE SATISFIED, ADD YOUR NAME,  COPYRIGHT INFO. RESIZE & MERGE ANY LAYERS IF YOU'D LIKE. 


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRYING MY TUTORIAL...


Now here I would like to say that this is my first tut.  Now it ended up longer than I would have liked, but I am not sure that I could have made it shorter without conveying everything I wanted.  So please bare with me as I am still extremely new at tut writing...lol!  This being said, I would love to hear any feedback, good & bad.  I definitely can handle the criticism. That is the only way I am going to get better.  So please let me know what you think I have done right & what I am doing wrong.  This is definitely a trial & error sort of thing for me.  Okay, thanks again everyone for checking out my tut.  Have a great day!   ♥HUGZ♥JESS♥
