Music Is… -PTU
This tutorial was written on June 18, 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 Alyssa called Beautiful Music can be purchased HERE
++Template by Alyssa can be found HERE
++Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Moshilove. You can purchase her work HERE You must have a valid license in order to use her work.
++Mask and font of choice
-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, and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge group. Send this to the bottom of the layers palette.
Open your rain glow of choice, resize and then copy and paste as a new layer. Place it over the smaller rectangle layer. Add a ribbon of choice to the top of the rain to sort of cover it. Choose a gem and open it. Copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it and set each one at the end of the ribbon.
Next open a bow of choice and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer and place at the top center of the template.
Open the rose and stem of your choosing. Resize, then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the template. Duplicate it then go to image mirror. You may have to adjust it later to get the best view possible.
Add your tube of choice. Resize and adjust as you like. I used one of a woman laying down. This is best for this tag. Use your Xero, Radiance plug in at a random setting of your choosing.
Open the musical notes and paste as a new layer. Resize and adjust. Yes this goes over the tube layer.. it just looked better to me that way.
Open the piano, chello and flute. Copy and paste after resizing and place to the right of the template. I placed the chello strategically since her booty was showing lol. Adjust and move where you like.
Add the butterfly’s of choice and resize. Copy and paste as new layers, duplicate and move where you like.
Add your text, license info, copyright info and tagger markings.
Remember to save.
Thank you for trying my tutorial.
