seems like she stopped making her scrap kits but not sure.. put the
mask into your mask folder

I also used the
cute Punk art of İVery Many

paper15 right click on its layer on the layer palette and
promote background layer.
#2..Go to layer/Load save layer
from disk/Load Mask from disk...Find the mask on the drop down
preview window list..
#3. Apply the riekastarmask2
to the bkg. Use the settings below.
#3. Merge/ group
#4. Duplicate the mask layer 3
times so you end up with 4 of it's layers.. Merge/visible..
With just one layer of the mask it
was too see through for my liking...

it 900 x 900.Can resize later
#6.Open the element frame2.png

in the layers palette. Go to
Selections/ Modify/expand/ 2 pixels Selections/ Invert..
#8. Use your eraser tool

frame layer now.
Apply a 3D drop shadow on the frame
layer using the below settings.

I didn't have to resize any of
them. When you get them placed like you want.. you hide all the
bottom layers just have the
elements unhid then you merge visible on the elements
so all the small elements should
just be on one layer. Duplicate the layer and mirror it.
as shown below use your
deformation tool and pull out the frame to make it look round
Go to objects/ align/center in
#12. I decided I wanted another
layer of mask.. so I used paper11.jpg drug its layer over to the
and applied the same mask that I
used at first. Positioned them kind of staggered from the other one.
Hide all layers except the two mask
layers and the frame.. highlight the first grey mask layer on the
layer palette.. then
used my brush tool set on45 size/

many . Just highlight 14-17 frames and DELETE.

for this to work right you have to have the same amount of frames in
the animation and the new mask animation.
