put your 3D drop shadow on it YET..
like you did all the other elements :)
#9. I merged some of the layers to make it
butterfly dangle is on it's own layer BELOW the top merged
and the Winged
heart is on it's own layer.
#10.Duplicate both the butterfly dangle 2 times
and duplicate the winged heart layer 2 times
The reason were doing this.. is were are going
to apply EyeCandy5/ Textures on the winged heart layers
#11.Just Select all/ float/ defloat the winged
and on EACH
of those winged heart layers just the settings below
on the first one as is.. on the 2nd and 3rd
ones hit the random seed button each time
AFTER you apply the EC 5
Textures on the winged heart layers then put the 3D drop
shadow you used on the frame.
#12. ok now for the dangle butterfly... were
going to make like its swinging side to side... it will have 3
positions.. to the left..
middle and to the right. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO
THE TOP OF THE LOOPS IT WILL BE PIVOTING FROM THERE..
AND EACH TIME YOU MOVE IT FIRST TO THE LEFT
(SHARPEN ONCE) THEN LET THE MIDDLE ONE JUST STAY WHERE
IS... ON THE 3RD
LAYER OF THE DANGLE MOVE IT TO THE RIGHT.. (SHARPEN ONCE
TRY NOT TO
MOVE THE TOP... WHERE THE DANGLES PIVOT... IT WONT LOOK RIGHT
IF YOU MOVE THEM
Now is the time to resize the whole image if
you want.. you might have to sharpen the layers with the tube
tube on it..
have all layers showing but just the FIRST
Butterfly Dangle and the first winged heart showing the
other two of each element hidden.
