PTU tut Busy Bee

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Scrap kit: PTU kit Honey Bee by Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE

Font of choice, I used WeeHah

Tube: tube of choice, I am using the adorable art work of Caron Vinson HERE
You must have a license to use her work. 

♥ Let's Get started! ♥
Open a new raster layer at 700x700 transparent
For the drop shadow on evertying I am using the following settings:
Verticle: 2, Horizontal: 2, Opacity: 46, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)
Remember to save as you go.

(*Resize everything before you start copy and pasting)
Bee Hive (resize 25%)
Bee House (resize 41%)
Cloud 1 & 2 (Do Not Resize)
Cup 2 (resize 12%)
Cute Bee 2 (resize 12%)
Fence (resize 44%)
Flower 2 (resize 22%)
Flower Cluster (resize 78%)
Frame 4 (resize 25%)
Honey Spill (resize 78%)

Tube (if using the same tube resize 78%)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything! 
So for this siggy, we are going to be layering.  We are going to start with the bottom up.  
copy and paste cloud 1, move to the left side. copy and paste cloud 2 and move to the right side 
copy and paste honey spill, move it to the right side over cloud 2. Remember to add dropshadow
as you go.  copy and paste flower cluster.  center it over the clouds. Copy and paste the fence.
Duplicate and drag it below the flower cluster, and then back on the top fence, erase anything that
covers the large flower, so it appears the flower is above the fence. Copy and paste the bee house
and using your pick tool, rotate it to the right a bit, and move to the right side of the cluster.
Copy and paste the bee hive, and move it to the right side above the bee house, see sample for placement
copy and paste frame 4 mirror, and flip, and place behind the hive. paste flower 2 and move just above
frame 4 below the hive.  Duplicate and move to the left side of the hive and drag below the hive.
copy and paste the cup.  place on the fence..  Copy and paste the cute bees, put one on top above
the fence and then duplicate and move by the bee house.
Now we can add the tube. If using the same tube, mirror and adjust so her hand is near the hive.
Crop and resize, I resized mine to 500. add your name, 
Add the copyright info, any licenses numbers and merge visible
Save and you're done! Simple and easy.  
I would love to see what you made!
