And a sailing we will go....-PTU
And a sailing we will go PTU
This tutorial was written on July 15, 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 Tishia called Sail Away can be purchased HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Suzanne Wolcott and it can be purchased
++Mask and font of choice
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
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.
Open a new canvas, I started out with 600x600. Remember you can always resize and crop later. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge the group.
Open the Lifesaver frame. Copy and paste it as a new layer. Using your magic wand tool click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify expand by 8. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Move this layer below the frame layer.
We’re going to make an ocean “scene” inside the frame. Open the waves, and resize, copy and paste below the frame layer. Adjust as needed.
Add the tug boat, light house, fish and whale where you like it.
Open the kite and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer, go to image, mirror. Then move and adjust it to the upper right hand side of the tag.
Next open the directions pole, resizing it and copy and paste as a new layer. Add a the start of choice to the bottom of the pole.
Add your tube of choice, resizing and placing to the left.
Finally add your text, license info, copyrights and tagger markings.
Save and your done! Thank you for trying my tutorial.
