CT PTU Tutorial "Let's Give Thanks Collab" Drea's Creations

Supplies Needed

Photo-Editing Software
I use PSP X3 but any version will work.

"Let's Give Thanks Collab" by Drea's Creations; this is a PTU kit, please DO NOT share.

"Thanksgiving 2010 Tube" by Keith Garvey; this is a PTU tube, please do NOT share or use without proper license.



WSL_Mask58 (found HERE)

Xero - Radiance

Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas (I use 650x650, transparent) and paste DC_58, resize/sharpen if needed.  Open up paper 2, apply your mask and place it on your canvas below the frame layer so just a bit is sticking out from the edges.  After that I opened up my elements and placed them around the frame, resizing and sharpening as needed.  Don't forget to add a dropshadow (I use 2, 2, 75, 6.99, black).  

Next you'll want to add your tube.  On the tube I used plugin Xero-Radiance and added a dropshadow (2, -2, 100, 7, black).  For the setting of Radiance I just pressed random until I got something I liked (it ended up being: 139, 81, 149, 156).  After that you can add your name & copyrights and you're done!

CT Tutorial & Snags "Feelin' Frosty" Jackie's Jewels

Supplies Needed

Photo Editing Software
I am using PSP X3 but any version will work

"Feelin' Frosty" by Jackie's Jewels; this is a PTU kit, please do NOT share.

"Individual 206-1" by PinupToons; this is a PTU tube, please do NOT use without proper license.

Xero - Radiance (tube)


JJS_13 (duplicated x3)
JJS_15 (duplicated x2)
JJS_33 (duplicated/mirrored)
JJS_41 (duplicated/mirrored)
JJS_47 (duplicated/mirrored)
JJS_56 (duplicated x2)


Let's get started!!  First open up a blank canvas (I use 650x650, transparent background).  Copy/paste element JJS_5 onto the canvas, resize/sharpen and place in the upper center of the canvas.  Copy/paste element JJS_41, resize/sharpen and place over to the left and move below the frame layer.  Duplicate the layer and mirror it.  Add desired dropshadow (I use 2, 2, 75, 6.99, black).  Copy/paste elements JJS_47 and do the above steps, placing the snow above the fence but below the frame layer.

Copy/paste your tube and place above the frame layer in the center.  Now open the other elements, resize & place where you'd like (feel free to use my example to help you).  For JJS_36, I copy/pasted, resized/sharpened and placed below the fence layer, positioning it at the top and left of the tube.  Then duplicated/mirrored it and merged those two.  Then I duplicated the merged elements, rotated to fit on the leftmost side of the frame and then duplicated/mirrored that to the other side.

Once you've got your elements where you want them, it's time for the paper.  Highlight your frame layer in the layer palette, grab your magic wand and click inside the circle then Selections - Modify - Expand by 5.  Insert your paper, resize/sharpen and then invert selection and with the paper layer highlighted hit delete on your keyboard.  Next choose two tubes from the same artist & same store to place on either side of the tube behind the frame layer and above the paper layer.  For mine I duplicated the tube and on the top one I changed the blend mode to soft light and on the bottom one I changed the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy) and placed a gaussian blur of 3.  For my main tube I used Xero-Radiance and just clicked Random until I found one I liked (it ended up being 165, 159, 31, 134).

Now you can add your name & make sure your copyright is visible and then your done.  I didn't include a mask with this tag because I made a mask out of elements (as seen in my example).  You can choose to add a mask if you like.  Thank you so much for trying my tutorial.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me at mbalmerswifetuts@gmail.com.
