Peace, Love & Happy Times
Peace, Love and Happy Times-FTU
This tutorial was written on June 22, 2009 by Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.
++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++Scrap kit by Susan aka HippieDaze can be found HERE
++Template 009 by Susan aka HippieDaze can be found HERE
++3 tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Popeye Wong, it is FTU however please give credit where credit is due, and give him credit on the tag. You can find his work HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Let’s Get Started!
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
Open the large rectangle of your choice. Using your keyboard short cut keys, (Shift+D) duplicate the frame as a new image.
Open several papers of choice, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I’ve opened (say like paper 2) it tells me what percentage I’m viewing it at. For me it’s usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you’ve done this, minimize for later use
Next go to the bottom template layer and go to selections, select all, then float, selections defloat. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Add a gradient glow on the fat setting the colors of your choice. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Open the large flower of your choice, copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the round frame layer on the template. Add a heart embellishment of your choice to the center of that flower.
Next open two of the tubes you want to use, crop them and resize as needed. Copy and paste as new layers below the postage stamp frame layers. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the one frame. Go to selections, modify expand by 6. Go to selections, invert then go to your tube layer. Hit delete on your keyboard. Repeat this process for the other frame. Add your final tube to the right of the tag.
Open several butterflies and flowers of your choosing. Place a butterfly each on the postage frames. Place where ever you like also.
Add one flower to the upper left hand part of the frame, the other to the hip of the girl tube. Add any other flowers you like.
Add your copyright info and tagger markings along with any text you like.
Save and your done!
