For those about to rock PTU
For those about to rock PTU
This tutorial was written on August 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 Alyssa called Good Vs. Evil can be purchased HERE
++Template 12 by Wacky Scraps can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Susan Mcgivergan which can be purchased HERE
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font and Mask of choice
-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 the glitter splat of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move this to just above the mask layer.
Next open the rose with stem of your choice. Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the frame background layer, adjusting and angling to the left slightly. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open the fencing wire, copy and paste as a new layer. Use your magic wand tool and click inside the circle frame layer. Go to selections, modify expand by 6. Go to selections, invert and hit delete on your keyboard.
Copy and paste your tube , and do the same as above.
Add your cloud of choice to the bottom part of the circle frame. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open the cupcake you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the template frame. Add two roses you like, duplicating one and moving it side by side. Add the other one to the center of those.
Next add a guitar to the left part of the frame and a bow to the top center.
Add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
