This tutorial was written on July 24, 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 Cays Creations called Alexandra’s Garden can be purchased from HERE
++ Template 7 by Wacky Scraps can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Cris Delara which can be purchased HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font of choice 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. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Add the gradient glow of your choice. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Add a raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask of choice and merge the group. Move this layer to the bottom.
Open the leaves element, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it towards the bottom left of the template. Duplicate it then go to image, mirror.
Next open the white/pink flower (not sure what its called lol) and resize it. Copy and paste it as a new layer towards the top left side of the template. Angle it slightly so it looks like its curved slightly. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Add the tulip bunch next after resizing. Move it to the left hand side under the last bunch of flowers you put up. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open another bunch of flowers you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer, below the tulips, but make sure the layer itself above it. Duplicate it then go to image, mirror.
Next open the trellis, resize it then copy and paste it as a new layer. Add it to the center of the template.
Open your tube of choice, then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of the template. Resize and adjust as needed.
Add the purple iris’ after resizing it. Copy and paste as a new layer, move to the left of it. Duplicate it twice, move each of them next to eachother.
Next add the small flower of your choice to the ends of those, but up a little.
Add the wooden fence towards the bottom.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
