Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental

You will need:

Font of choice – I used Chick, FTU font found

Scrapkit by Chica called Denim and Daisies
This a FTU kit and can be downloaded from

Tube of choice. I used Saucy by Keith Garvey. His work can be found at

Mask of choice – I used WSL75

Open new canvas 700 x 700. Fill white

New raster layer – fill with gradient FG #cfd2db  BG #3a495d  45 degrees  1 repeat.
Apply mask WSL75. Merge group.
Apply filter – Jeans using default settings.

Wood Frame 1 Rotate 90 degrees.
Resize 60% Sharpen. Dropshadow.

Paper 5. Resize 40% paste under frame. Sharpen and remove excess from outside frame.

Tube ( waist up one ) resize 80% twice. Sharpen.
Paste over frame and place where desired.

Click on frame. Selections – select all – float – defloat.
Click on tube and erase any parts outside frame that you don’t want seen.
Deselect. Dropshadow

Glitter Swirl resize 50% twice. Sharpen. Paste above frame and move to top.
Duplicate – mirror – flip. DO NOT MERGE DOWN.
Dropshadow both. Arrange the upper swirl under the tube, and the lower one below it.

Close background, and merge visible. Re-open background.

Move merged frame/tube up and to the left. Duplicate – mirror.
Move so that the copy at the bottom is under the top one ( see my tag ).
Merge down, and centralize on canvas. ( I find the easiest way to do this is to cut and paste ).

Posie 3 resize 40%. Sharpen. Paste above frames to the right. Dropshadow.

Tube again – choose the one showing mid-thigh up.
Paste behind frames to the right. Dropshadow.
Apply Jeans on default settings.
Set opacity to 50.

Tube again. This time select the full sized one. Opacity to 56 and paste above previous tube layer. Dropshadow.

Floral set 2 resize 60%. Paste under frames in centre of canvas. Sharpen. Dropshadow.

Tube yet again lol. Choose full sized one and paste to the left. Dropshadow.

Crop & resize if desired.
