Open a new image 300 x 300 - Transparent background - 1.7 million colors. |
Open the 'Layer Palette'
Add a new layer.
Name the layer "graphic".
This layer will be used for the pictures which go inside the snowglobe.
|Add another 5 layers naming them as shown.|
|Activate the 'glass' layer.|
|Click on the 'Picture Tubes' tool |
Find the 'snowglobe glass' tube that we made.
|Set the cursor at 150 120 and apply 1 tube|
Activate the 'base' layer. |
Click the 'Tubes' tool and find the 'snowglobe base' tube.
Apply 1 tube
|Click on the 'Mover' tool |
and push the base snug with the bottom of the glass.
Activate the 'glass' layer
Click on the 'Magic Wand' tool and set up as shown.
|Click outside the circle and then 'Invert' the selection.|
We will next apply the snow to the snow layers.
This can be done by applying each flake separately and you can use stars or whatever instead of flakes.
The only thing to watch is that each snow layer is different.
For speed I will take a shortcut.
|Click the 'Airbrush' tool |
and set up as shown
|Activate the 'snow1' layer and apply to the graphic slightly above center.|
|Activate the 'snow2' layer and apply about center.|
|Activate the 'snow3' layer and apply slightly below center|
