Autism Speaks-FTU-Crafted By Gina

I'm using a wonderful FTU kit of Gina's called Autism Speaks, you can get it on her blog HERE

I'm using the wonderful work of Elias Chatzoudis and you can get his tubes HERE

I'm using a mask of Vix from her goodies section which you can find on her tut site HERE

You will need a font of choice too.

Ok......Lets begin!!

(This is a rather large tag and you can resize if you wish at the end of the tut.
I prefer to work on a larger scale.)

Grab paper02, copy and paste as a new image.
Add your mask and merge group.

Add 2 new layers and on the top layer grab vine01 and place in the center of the mask, copy, paste, mirror and place.
On the middle layer add the close up image of your choice.
Using your majik wand and click on the center of the vine frame we made.
Selections-Modify-Expand-3-Invert and delete the tube layer.
Playing with the blend mode, find a blend you like.
I used hard light.

Merge visible and add your tube as a new layer and mirror, if you want.

Grab flower06 and place behind your tube.
Grab the puzzle pieces and place to the left of your tube.
As a new layer, grab the autism word art re size 55% and place it so it reads AUTISM SPEAKS.
I added a gradient glow.
Grab flower05, resize 55%, mirror, and place above the white flower you just added and also below the white flower too.
You are going to use the same yellow flower and place right above the puzzle pieces.
Grab butterfly02, resize 65%, rotate free-15 degrees- right and place near a flower.

Add your copyright and license info and ENJOY!!

  1. I would really like to try this tutorial out - autism is really close to my heart. I have a son that is autistic. Which #vix mask did you use for this tutorial? Thanks, Charmaine
