I hope you Dance PTU
I hope you dance PTU
This tutorial was written on August 30, 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 Stargazer Musings called Purple Beauty can be purchased HERE
++Template 89 by Blissfully Beth can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Angela Newman which can be purchased HERE
++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 for the remainder of the template.
Add a new raster layer, and send to the bottom Flood fill with your choice of paper and add your mask and remember to merge group.
Open the doodle of choice, resize then copy and pate as a new layer. Move it angle it, moving it towards the upper left hand corner of the tag. Move this layer below the template. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image flip.
Next open the rose of choice. Copy and paste as a new layer in the center of the frame template layer.
Then open the bow swag of your choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left of the frame, centering it. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add a bouquet of flowers you like. Duplicate it and place each on the bow swag.
Next add your tube of choice to the center of the tag. Adjust and move as you like.
Randomly place the dragon flies and butterflies of choice through out the tag.
Add your text, copyrights and license info.
Save and your done!
