Rock On PTU
This tutorial was written on August 16, 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 Mellibeans called Rockstar can be purchased HERE
++Template 79 by Kristin can be found HERE
++Three tubes of choice or the ones I used. I used the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis which can be purchased HERE
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. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Open the glitter splatter you like. Copy and paste as a new layer, moving it to the bottom of the layer palette. Move it to the upper right hand side. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image flip.
Next open the three tubes of choice. Place in each of the frames as you like. **Note I chose to make them look like they were “jumping” out of the frame. To do this duplicate the tube, move it below the frame. On the top tube layer, use your eraser brush and remove what you don’t want seen above the frame. Go to the bottom tube layer and erase the rest that you don’t want seen, usually towards the bottom.
Open your ribbon of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move and angle as you like to the frame on the right hand side. Do this for the middle frame, but up in the upper right hand corner of it.
Choose the two curled ribbons you like. Copy and paste the first one, resizing and adjusting. Move to the bottom part of the frame on the left. Move this below the skull layer from the template. Repeat this for the other two frames.
Add your flower of choice to the corner of the middle frame. Resize it and adjust as needed.
Open to the two guitars, resize and adjust as needed. Copy and paste as new layers to the left of the canvas. Angle the one on the right slightly and add a bow of choice to the middle of them where they connect.
Now open the skull sticker to the upper right hand side of the tag.
Add your text, copyrights, license number and tagger markings.
Save and your done! Thank you for trying my tutorial!
