Mura Meister Copies


Open frame5. Resize to 600 x 479. With your move tool, show transform controls checked. Click & drag your frame so it is slightly smaller. Apply the transformation.

Open your mask & paper6. Because I include a PNG for PS users, I used the PNG version. Paste your mask onto your canvas. Stretch the edges of the mask so they meet the edges of the canvas. Apply the transformation.

Paste your paper as a new layer. Ctrl + Click on the mask thumbnail in the layer palette. On your paper layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect & delete the mask layer. Move this layer to the bottom.

On your frame layer, use your magic wand tool & click inside each of the frames. Select, modify, expand by 3. Open solid4. Paste as a new layer. Select, inverse & press delete. Deselect & move below the frame layer.

Now to add our remaining elements:

element52 – paste as a new layer above the frame layer. Place centered over the bottom edge of the second row of frames.
element23 – place to the bottom, slightly to the left. Rotate 90 degrees to the left. Click & drag to resize slightly. Duplicate, rotate 180. Place to the top, a little to the right.

Open your tube. Paste as a new layer above the green paper layer, resizing a little bit or to the size of your choice.

Mura Meister Copies, H-Tile(random v-line) preset. Change the number to 11. Click ok. Duplicate this layer. Arrange both layers over the paper to your liking. Merge these two layers together.

On the original merged layer, image, adjustments, desaturate. (in PSP, press Shift+L and set it to 0,0).

On the duplicate merged layer, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to overlay, opacity 60. On the original merged layer, change the opacity to 20. Apply a halftone pattern of your choice to this layer or in PSP you can use the halftone filter.

Paste your tube again, this time just below your ribbon layer. Click & drag to resize. With your lasso tool, select any part of the tube that hangs below your ribbon layer, then press delete. Deselect.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Merge visible & save as a PNG.
