Victorian Christmas

Tutorial By Marleschka

This tutorial was made in PSP 8.1 but I am sure could be done in any version. For this tutorial I used 13 tubes, (please note: all tubes layers are closed on these tubes) all of which are supplied in the zip files.

You can get my zipped files Here And Here I have split the tubes into 2 zip files so as to cut down on size.

The Christmas Ornaments you see in this tutorial are original and made by Charlie and you can find more Here There are 3 Pages of them. I have supplied all of the papers and embellishments for this tutorial but If you would like to know how to do them so you can make this look different then click Here

Bring up the tubes in PSP.


( 1 ) Open a new 625 x 525 transparent Image.


( 2 ) With your foreground on #FAE9CB and your background on #C8CCB0, In your foreground make a foreground background gradient with these settings, style linear, angle 0 repeats 0, invert checked and flood fill your image. ( please note the lighter color should be at the top of your gradient.)
