I have made this Snowglobe alpha for you..
In the supplies zip I have included some Winter snow trees
also the Pixel Snowman set.
Below I did a Video tutorial of this also..
in case you want to download the video tut , you can
#1. Open the snow globe alpha A-F.png I also
opened the PixelSnowmen.psd that was in the supplies zip..
I copied and pasted which ever snowmen I wanted to use, and
positioned them on the letters.
#2 After you get all the snowmen, trees etc onto the letters
you hide letter layer and merge visible on all the other
I applied a 3D drop shadow to the snowman merged layers.
#3. I wanted more snow on the letters.. so I applied VDL
Adrenaline Snowflakes on the merged snowmen layer
Using these settings below.
#4. You end up with the snow all over the snowman layer..
Highlight the letter layer now on the layer palette, use
your magic wand tool and
click on the outside of the letters..
#5. Go to Selections/expand/6 or 8 pixels..(depends on how
close you want it to be cropped.
#6.You should end up with it looking like below.. Unselect
#7. Use your eraser tool and erase the white snow around the
edges that over laps into the drop shadow..
Dont forget inside the A, B and D letters...you might have to
make your round brush
Thickness 50.. shaped like an oval so you can erase in those
You should be done.. In the video it shows how you use the
selection tool to separate the letters.. Hope
you enjoyed the tuts... till next time TOODLES!!
