Autumn Leaves PTU (Animated)

This tutorial was written on August 27, 2009 by Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.
Supplies Needed:

++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++Jasc Animation Shop 3

++Signs of Fall Scrap kit by Crazed Creations can be purchased HERE

++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Suzanne Wolcott and her work can be purchased HERE

++Font and Mask of choice

++Font and Mask of choice

Let’s get Started!

-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.

Open several papers of choice, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I’ve opened (say like paper 2) it tells me what percentage I’m viewing it at. For me it’s usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you’ve done this, minimize for later use.

Open a new canvas of 600x600. Remember you can always resize later. Flood fill the canvas with your choice of paper. Add your mask, and merge the group.

Next open the leaf frame. Copy and paste as a new layer into your working canvas. Open the pinecone frame and copy and paste as a new layer over the leaf frame.

Go back to the leaf frame, and use your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify expand by 8. Add a new raster layer and fill with your choice of paper. Move this layer below the frame layer. Go to selections, none.

Next open the doodle of your choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Angle it and move it to the upper left hand side of the tag. Move this layer down below the frame layers, just above the mask layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then, image flip.

Open the grass with rocks layer, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer and move it to below the leaf layer. Erase any parts that are showing beyond the frame.

Then open your sunflower, resize it if needed and copy and paste as a new layer. Angle it slightly and move to the upper left side of the tag. Move this layer just above the pinecone frame layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add the bow of choice to both flowers.

Open the wooden bench then copy and paste it as a new layer. Center it into the bottom portion of the frames.

Add a pumpkin of choice to either side of the bench. Add two leaves behind the pumpkins.

Open your tube of choice, then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of the tag. Place in front of the bench to look as if she is sitting on the bench or leaning on it.

Next open the moon and copy and paste as a new layer to the top left portion of the tag. Resize it and adjust as needed.

Open three of the leaves you like, copy and paste as new layers, towards the top. Arrange them as you like.

Add your text, license info, and copyrights. Save as a psp image if you choose to animate, if not save as a jpeg or png.


Open your animation shop and minimize it.

This is kind of tedious but the end result is pretty cool.

In PSP, move your moon slightly to the right. Then move and arrange the leaves slightly moving them to the right. Go to edit, copy merged and over to animation shop.

Right click and go to paste as new animation.

Back to PSP, repeat the process, moving the moon and leaves a little more. Edit, copy merged and back to animation shop. Go to edit, paste after current frame.

Back to PSP and repeat the process until you have all the frames you like.

In Animation shop go to animation, animation properties and change it to the speed you like. I changed mine to 30 but you can make it higher to make it slower if you like.

Save as a gif and your done!

Thank you for trying my tutorial!
