Princess That I Am 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 Glamorous by Stargazer Muzings can be purchased HERE
++Template 24 by Kristin can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Alice Terraneo and it can be purchased
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Mask and Font 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 your gradient glow of choice. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. 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 the group. Move this layer to the bottom of your layer palette.
Open your glitter doodle of choice. Resize, then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper right hand side of the canvas. Move it to the bottom layer below the mask layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror, image flip. Open another one and repeat this process.
Add your tube of choice and move below the word art. A leaning or sitting tube is the best to use for this. I resized her and positioned in to fall on the star a bit.
Next open the two glitter shoes you like. Copy and paste them as new layers, opposite each other on the bottom of the tag. Add a bow and butterfly of choice to them.
Open several flowers of choice, resize them and copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate them and move them randomly through out the tag.
Open another butterfly and resize. Copy and paste through the tag as you like.
Add your text, license and copyright info and tagger markings
Save and your done
