Diamonds are a girls best friend -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 called Diamond Diva by Nee @ Envied and Admired Scraps can be purchased HERE OR HERE OR HERE
++Template 50 by Kristin at Wicked Scraps can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Alice Terraneo which can be purchased HERE
-Eye candy 4000-Gradient Glow
++Font and mask of choice
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. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
**Note do this for the brush layer also!
Add a new raster layer, flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge group. Move this to the very bottom of your layers palette.
Open the frame of your choice, I used one with the flowers on it. Copy and paste as a new layer and move above the circle template layer. You’ll need to resize and adjust so that it fits it just right.
Next open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Center in the middle of your canvas. Adjust as needed.
Open the diamond element, and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer and place to the left of the template. Angle it so the pointy end ends up in the corner of the rectangle and circle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add a bow of choice to the bottom of the diamond.
Choose one of the polish bottles and cell phone. Place below the diamond layer after resizing. Do the same with the shoe element but on the opposite side. Duplicate the shoe to make them a pair. Arrange how you like.
Add a lipstick and glasses of choice to the top of the diamond on the left side. On the opposite side put the wineglass and quill pen.
Finally add your text, copyright info, license and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
