BRIGHT SUNSHINEY DAY-FTU
Bright Sunshiny Day-FTU
This tutorial was written on July 3, 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 called Summer Brights Add On can be found HERE
++Template 8 by Lollipops Candyland can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of CEI stickers which can be purchased here 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 template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.
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, flood fill with your choice of paper. Load the mask of your choosing, remember to merge group. Move this layer to the bottom.
Open the flower of your choice, copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the circle frame layer.
Go to the template layer where the flowers are. Close off all other layers and merge these together. Unhide all other layers, and go back to the flower layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image flip. You should now have one on the other side of the frame.
Open the heart strings, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the flower layer. Adjust and move where you like, I moved mine towards the bottom. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Move this one up towards the top.
Add your tube of choice. Center where you like, adjust as needed.
Open the sun, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper right side of the tag.
Add two stars of your choosing along with two flowers, alternating down the bottom left of the circle layer.
Add you text of choice.
Don’t forget your license number, copyright info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
