Scrap Blend 20

Tutorial By Marleschka

This tutorial was made in PSPX2 but can be done in any version. For this tutorial I used a Scrap Kit from Mysterious Scrapgirl who unfortunately is no longer online. I am supplying the Scrapkit here and because of it’s size I have broken them into 5 seperate files which you can get Here Here Here Here And Here Unzip them all into the one folder.

You can get the pic and the mask I used Here

Place the scrap kit in a folder of your choice. Place the mask in your masks folder.


( 1 ) Open a new 700 x 600 transparent Image. Flood fill with color #440b07


( 2 ) New layer. Selections, select all. From the scrap kit copy MSG Autumn Colors Paper 6 and paste into the selection. Selections, select none.


( 3 ) New layer. Selections, select all. From the scrap kit copy MSG Autumn Colors Paper 1 and paste into the selection. Selections, select none.


( 4 ) Layers, Load/Save Mask and find the mask you saved with these settings, Source Luminance, Fit to canvas & Hide all masks ticked. Layers merge, merge group.


( 5 ) From the scrap kit bring up MSG Autumn Colors Flower frame. This has a selection which you can copy and paste the scrap-blend20-pic into or a pic of your choice. Selections, select none. Layers merge, merge visible.


( 6) Copy the frame and paste as a new layer onto your image. Image resize and resize by 55%. Adjust sharpen, sharpen. ( Please remember to sharpen after every resize, saves me from repeating myself) Place it to the center left of the mask. (see my image) With your pic (deformation tool) pull it out a little on each side to make it a little wider.Scrap Blend 20

Add a new layer and with the tube tool at size 50 stamp some leaves on the lattice part of the mask (see my image) Also go to the layer underneath your mask layer, make a new layer and add some leaves there also. I also clicked on the layers underneath the frogs and caterpillar and added a leaf. (see my image)
