Have a froggy day-PTU
HAVE A FROGGY DAY-PTU
This tutorial was written on July 14, 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 Natasha at Sticky Kisses Designs called Froggy Day can be found HERE
++Template 165 by Missy can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of CEI stickers which can be purchased from HERE
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.
Using your magic wand tool click inside the frame layer. Go to selections, modify and expand by 5. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Go to selections, none. Move this layer below the frame layer.
Open your choice of tags, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right side of the frame. Add a binder clip of choice to the top, angling to the right.
Next open a flower and frog of choice. Resize and copy and paste each as new layers to the left of the tag. Duplicate them three times and alternate them in a line. View tag as example.
Open the kit, resize it and copy and paste as a new layer. I put one up in the upper left corner of the tag and also in the lower right.
Add your tube, resizing and centering in the frame.
Add your text, license info, copyrights and tagger markings.
Save and your done.
Thank you for trying my tutorial!
