This tutorial was written on July 17, 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 Dana called Pink Flower can be purchased HERE
++Template by Alyssa can be found HERE++Template by Alyssa can be found HERE
++3 tubes of choice or the ones I used. I used the artwork of Suzanne Wolcott can be purchased HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient glow
-Muera Meister Copies
-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. Add a gradient glow of your choice. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Open the charm dangles of your choice. Copy and paste as a new layer below the frame layer. Use your magic wand tool and click inside each of the frames. Go to selections, modify expand by 6. Go to selections, invert and on the charm layer, hit delete on your keyboard.
Open your choice of flower. Resize it and then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of the canvas. Use your plug in, muera meister copies on the encircle option. Set your x and y to 35 and to whatever number of flowers you like. Adjust as needed then add a black gradient glow.
Next open your three tubes, and crop them as needed. Copy and paste as new layers below the frame layer. Use your magic wand tool and click inside the frames again, go to selections, modify expand by 6 and go to your tube layers and hit delete on your keyboard. Go to selections, none.
Then open two of the rinestone flowers. Resize them then copy and paste as new layers below the background frame layer. On the first one, resize a little more and move to the left frame, and angle slightly. Duplicate it and move it the other side of the frame. Add the other one to the center of those two. Repeat this for the right sided frame.
Open both butterflies. Resize then copy and paste the first ones and angle slightly. Move it to the bottom corner of the middle rectangle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add a gradient glow to both of them.
Then on the second butterfly copy and paste after resizing and move to the bottom part of the left hand frame. Add a gradient glow to this one then duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Add a tag of your choice along with a button to the top of the template.
Add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
