Autumn Beauty PTU
This tutorial was written on September 24th, 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 Halo Designs called Autumn Romance can be purchased HERE
++Template 57 by Blissfully Beth can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Barbara Jensen which you can purchase HERE
-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. 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 group.
Open the leaf branch of choice. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper right hand side. Also move below the bottom template layer. Duplicate it, then go to image, mirror then image flip.
Then open your tube of choice, crop as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the circle frame layer. Note I also went to image, mirror and mirrored my tube so she’s facing the other direction. Move and adjust where you want her on the right side of the circle. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the circle frame layer. Go to selections, modify, expand it by 7. Then go to selections, invert. On the tube layer, hit the delete key. Then go to selections none.
Back to the tube layer, use your plug in Penta, jeans on the default setting. Change the opacity to what you like.
Next open the flower of your choice then copy and paste it as a new layer into the center of the tag. Go to your plug in muera meister copies on the encircle option. Set the x and y to 50 and any number of flowers you like. Move this layer to below the bottom circle template layer.
Now copy and paste your tube of choice again, this time placing in the center of the rectangle layer. Adjust and move her where you like.
Open the leaf you like and resize it. Copy and paste as a new layer, moving it to the bottom corner of the rectangle frame. Duplicate it then mirror it so its on the other corner. Add the flower clip you like to each side also. Then add a butterfly you like to the center of it.
Add a tag of choice to the upper left hand corner.
Finally add your text, copyrights, and license info as well as tagger markings.
Save and your done. Thank you for trying my tutorial!
