Beautiful View FTU
Beautiful View FTU
This tutorial was written on August 22, 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 Doris @ Scraps Dimensions called by Diamond Blues can be found on her blog HERE
++Template 32 by Bev can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Kate Lightfoot, which can be found HERE She does give permission to use her work, please give proper credit when you do use it.
++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! One you have flood filled the layer for the burnt paper layer, go to blend mode on the layers palette and change it to overlay. Once you did this you can not delete the template layer. That’s ok.
Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame layer. Go to selections, modify expand by 8 and add a new raster layer. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Go to selections, none.
Open your tube of choice and resize it. Copy and paste as a new layer and move it below the frame layer. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame and go to selections, modify, expand by 8. Then go to selections, invert. On your tube layer tap the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge the group. Move this layer to the bottom of your layer palette.
Open the plant element. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, move below the frame and frame background layer. Arrange and adjust as needed. Duplicate it and go to image mirror. Duplicate it once more, and move to the top of the frame. Angel it so that it “sprays” outward toward the right. Duplicate it and go to image mirror. Close off all layers except for these two then merge visible. Duplicate this layer and go to image, flip. Open all layers. Adjust the plants as needed.
Add the heart pin of your choice to either side of the frame. Then add a the rose swag to the bottom of the frame.
Open the bow of choice and resize it. Add it to the top of the frame.
Next open the rose with stem of your choice, resize it then copy and paste it as a new layer. Move it below the frame layer and angle it as needed. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Next open up the flower and butterflies of choice, resize them and copy and paste as new layers through out the tag where you like.
Add your text, copyrights and tagger markings
Save and your done!
