The first image is of wrapping paper that I scanned. I
cut pieces from it and made new layers to paste them on.
The radio and balloons were one layer, Blue was one
layer. I got rid of Mailbox altogether, but cut out his
party hat and put it on a different layer. Tickety Tock
was on her own layer too. I copied pieces of the party
hat to cover the mailbox flag, so it would be complete.
I also resized it a little bit to fit on Connor's head.
I had to move that layer above Connor, so it wasn't
As far as getting the layer of Connor, I used the
magnetic tool to extract him from the slide picture. I
just pasted him into the party image. I did a lot of
moving things around...
The text was created using Pooh font. I gave it a flag
wave, emboss and bevel, drop shadow, and a gradient
overlay of transparent rainbow.
There are some areas that could use some touching up,
but I didn't have time. The print looks much better.
