Hey Sexy PTU
Hey Sexy PTU
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 called Pink Punkby Nee @ Envied and Admired Scraps can be purchased HERE OR HERE OR HERE
++Template 73 by Kristin @ Toxic Desirez can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Jen aka NoFlutter it is a FTU tube and you can find her work HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
-Muera Meister Copies
++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. 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. **NOTE! I removed the word art layer and the large music note layers. We won’t need those for this tag.
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 wire fencing element. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer and move to the bottom layer just above the mask layer.
Next open the pink gem of choice, resize it slightly 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. Click ok then move this to just above the fencing layer. Arrange as a needed.
Open the other gem of choice and repeat the process. Adjust and arrange as needed and move this layer below the pink gem layer.
Next open the lollipop of choice and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer, move it below the frame and background layers to the right. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Adjust as needed.
Open the guitar of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer and place into the center of the canvas. Angle it to the left slightly. Add another guitar and do the same.
Choose the skull and crossbones element, resize then copy and paste into the left and right frames, angling slightly. Adjust as needed.
Next open the juke box, corset, board marker and film reel. Resize them then copy and paste them accordingly into the canvas and move to the bottom right hand side of the tag.
Open two bows you like, copy and paste them both, duplicating each once. Move one of the bows to each of the outside frame in the right corners. Then move the others to the opposite corners on the bottom inside.
Finally add your text and copyrights as well as tagger markings.
Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
