Country Boogie Tutorial


Scrapkit: Splash of Sunflowers by Country Hollow Creations

Template: Template51 by Simply Devilish Scrapz

Tube: FTU Popeye Wong
My colorized version HERE

OK lets begin...

First we need to prepare our tube

Popeye Wong is one of my favorite artist because he allows us to not only use his wonderful work for free but color alter to fit our needed. On this tutorial, we'll be coloring her clothes to match our kit.

Open your tube. I'm using Orange-Juice
Take your magic wand with the following settings and select the red parts of your tube (her clothes)
I find it easier just to duplicate your tube and select the general area with your lasso tool and then delete the part that shouldn't be colored but you can do this however you feel the most comfortable.

Of course, if your just feeling lazy and don't wanna do this, you can use the tube in my supplies already colorized.
