Woah have I been busy!

So since my last post {which was waaaaaaaaaaay to long ago!} I have gotten my GED, started beauty school, been told I am a horrible neglectful mother and that my mother in law is taking me to court for custody of my daughter, then she preceded to kick me out. I had to miss school so I could get all mine and my daughters stuff out of her house in 1 day. Plus on top of all of this my husband is moving to Georgia end of June and the baby and I won't be going with him until March of next year at the earliest. 5 years I been with my  husband and have NEVER been that far away from him. Never more then a couple blocks. I don't know what I'm going to do or how I'm going to handle it. O and I am participating in Tagging Idol with PTE to keep my mind off things so wish me luck with that! Ill try to have some new tutorials and kits out soon. Maybe I'll even throw a few freebies in there =D

Everybody's Fool Animated Tutorial

Photobucket

Tutorial written by ©Stephanie Spriggs aka Stefani for use on http://swaggabystefani.blogspot.com. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. Please do NOT claim as your own. My tutorials are for personal use only, please do not use them for monetary gain. If you wish to share my tutorial please contact me at swaggabystefani@gmail.com first to obtain permission.

Supplies Needed
For this tutorial you will need 3 tubes. The tubes I am using are all by Ralf Straaberg. For the animation I am using “Priceless Piece of Art” and “Masked Pain”. For the background I will be using “Selling The Drama” Available at Dreamscape Imaging 

FTU “School Of Rock” colab kit, We will be using Abstracts part. Available for download here

Font used is “Barbies Jalous Sisters” available at dafont.com

Animation Shop

We will start with the main banner. First open a canvas of 600x250.
Open p03 from the papers.
Copy > Paste as New Layer in the 600x250 canvas
Now we are going to take “Selling The Drama”
Copy > Paste As New Layer
Resize to 400x167
Place on left side making sure the top of her head meets the top of the banner
Duplicate > Mirror
Change blend mode to luminance at 25% for both

Now take the overlay I provided
Paste as new layer
Open RedSparkles
Copy > Paste as New Layer

Go back to the main layer
Select all > Selections > Modify> Select Selection Border
Using the following settings
Photobucket
Next make new raster layer
Flood fill black
Select none

Open BlackShoe
Resize by 50%
Move to lower left hand corner
Duplicate > Mirror

Now open frame1
Copy > Paste as new layer
Resize by 58%
Make sure frame is centered

Add your text
Add your credits
Add name

 Now we are going to start the morphing animation.
Open “Masked Pain” and “Priceless Piece Of Art”
Now we are going to Paste as New Layer “Masked Pain” over “Priceless Piece Of Art”
Lower the opacity to 50% so you can match the tubes up properly.
Now we are going to crop out the parts we don’t need.
Photobucket
Use the following setting to resize
Photobucket

Now we want the dark haired girl to be the end of the animation so we will start with her on top. We are going to copy merged with her on top at 100% opacity.
You will do this in 10% increments until the top girl is at 0%
When you paste them into the banner they should go straight to the middle. All you have to do is make sure the frame is over them all.
Now we select the inside of the frame
This is what you should have. However, I havent added my text, credits, or name yet.
Photobucket
Now you are going to invert > delete for each tube layer of the morph
So you should end up with this
Photobucket
Select None

Now for animating.
Open AS
Starting with the top tube layer copy merged > paste as new animation
Close off top layer Copy Merged > Paste After Current Frame
Do this until all frames are pasted.
Remember to close off each frame as you do it!
One you have all frames posted Edit > Select All
Duplicate Selected
Go back and Select the 2nd set of frames (from the blonde girl to the end)
Animation > Reverse Frames
Animation > Frame Properties
Change to 20
View animation to make sure its how you want it.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Finally an update! I have lost a CT position. I believe the reasoning behind me losing it was wrong on their part but I will not get any farther into it. However, I have gotten a new CT position with Crys' Creative Scraps. I have been trying to post her blinkie since last night but blogger apparently doesn't want me to yet lol. I will have that up as soon as blogger allows. I will also have a new tutorial up either today or tomorrow. I just want to thank everyone who reads my blogs, tries out my tutorials, and are just my friends. Thank you. Without you I wouldn't be who I am or be able to do what I do. =D
