This tutorial was written on June 21, 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 Monica of Simply Sensational Scraps called Gothic Romance can be found HERE
++Template 117 by Ali can be found HERE
++Two Tubes of choice. I used the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. You can purchase his work from HERE
-Xero Grey Scale
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
-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.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge group.
Open your close up tube, copy and paste as a new layer after resizing. Place below the frame layer. Duplicate it moving the bottom one slightly to the right. Use your texture effects, mosaic antique. I used the default setting. Go back to original tube layer, and use the Xero grey scaler at the default setting. Then use Xero Radiance.
Using your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify and expand by 5. On each of the tube layers, hit delete on your keyboard. Go to selections, none.
Open the fan of your choice and place in the bottom center of the doodle at the bottom of the frame. Add a corset, book and bag of your choice, clumped together to the left of the template.
Add a pin of your choice to the middle tag on the template layer. Add a rose to the top doodle layer, and a flower bunch to the bottom right hand side.
Open your other tube, use your plug in Xero Radiance. Copy and paste as a new layer and add to the right of the tube. Resize as needed.
Add copyright info, text, license info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
