Open paper 5.jpg  Copy over to your new image.

Apply the mask that was in the supplies zip to the paper's layer using the settings below.

Merge/ merge group. Duplicate the mask layer and merge with the other mask layer..

we do this so it shows up better.. add a new layer to the bottom of the layer palette.. fill with white.

#2. Open element 2.png (mosaic frame) copy over to new image.

Apply a 3d drop shadow on it.

#9.  Open the test art that's in the supplies zip... resize it 40% copy and paste it over to your working image.

If you want to resize etc.. now is the time to do it..

This is what my image looks like so far.

#10. Merge all the top layers from the frame on up... don't forget your copyright info..

On the layer palette.. it looks like this

Now duplicate the mask layer 2 times.. so you end up with 3 mask layers.

#11. Apply Eye candy Textured noise.. using these settings   Click the Random seed button on the 2nd and 3rd of the mask layers.

#12. Hide the 2nd and 3rd mask layers... have the top layers, one mask layer & white bkg layer showing.. Right click on window top and

copy merged..

 

Open your animation shop... and right click and paste as a new animation.

Back to PSP  hide the one showing mask layer and unhide the 2nd one.. have all the other layers showing.. I.E. the top layers and white bkg layer

Right click on window and COPY MERGED..

Over to animation shop.. and paste behind current frame on your new animation.

Back to PSP  unhide the last of the mask layers have the other mask layers hidden.. all the rest showing...

Right click COPY MERGE.. over in animation shop.. paste behind current frame.

You should end up with a 3 frame animation.??? if not something went wrong do it again :)

 

Now open the two animations that was in your supplies zip

the candle flame one and the white fireworks.. the flame is 21 frames...even though the white fire works has less frames... this is ok

on your new animation from PSP duplicate its 3 frames... till you have 21 frames also. don't forget to Ctrl + A to select all frames.

when your new animation has 21 frames..  Click , hold and drag F: 1 of the candle flame animation over to F: 1 of your new working animation.

get it positioned just right on top of the candle before you let go of the mouse button.

next.. have all frames selected and click hold and drag F: 1 of the fireworks animation over to F: 1 of your working animation... let go of mouse

when you get it placed where you want.

Check your animation.. to see if all looks ok.. if so.. save as a GIF..

DONE!!

Toodles till next time.
