PTU Tutorial: Saving the Harvest

CT PTU Tutorial for Digi Divas

Scrap kit available at Digi Divas Here.

        Great fall kit. This kit has 150 Elements and 25 papers. The fall, country, Native American and Thanksgiving themed elements. This large, stunning kit will give you hours of creative fun, and some awesome tags to share and show off.
       I paired this kit with a tube by ©Nocturne named feather. You can’t use this tube without the proper licensing and purchas of this tube. Tube is available at Pics for Designs

Legend

C/P = Copy Paste / D/S = Drop Shadow default settings: 3 -3 58 7.92 bg: background, / S/F/D: Select All, Float, Defloat / E or el: Element R: Resize / Unsharp mask Settings: 3 30 3 (Use after resizing if the image looks grainy or blurry )

I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things. This tutorial was written by me on 11/20/2016 and is purely of my own making. If there is any resemblance to any other tut it is purely coincidental. Please do not claim as your own.

Please refer to my TOU on the left sidebar.
