Fall is in the air ptu
This tutorial was written on September 23, 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 Crazed’s Creations called Fall Fever can be purchased HERE
++Template 3 by Horseplays Pasture can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Leigh Young. At this time I’m not sure WHERE you can get her work, but will update when I get a chance to find out sorry!
++Font and Mask of choice
++Plug ins needed:
-Tramages, Tow the line
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. Because this template is taking up the whole space we need to add more. Go to image, canvas size and make it 600x600.
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.
Go to your rectangle template layer and use your tramages tow the line plug in. I just used the default one.
Open your tube of choice and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right side of the rectangle.
Next open the sunflower of your choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer towards the top of the rectangle.
Choose a doodle you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer towards the left hand side on the bottom of the rectangle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add the leave bundle on top of one of them and duplicate it going to image, mirror.
Then open the leaf and pine cone set. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom left hand corner.
Next open the flower of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it towards the bottom of the tag. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Now open the raffia bow bunch you like. Angle it the way you want it, resize and copy and paste as a new layer and paste into the center of the two doodles on the bottom.
Add the candle bunch you like over it and then a leaf of choice over that.
Open the leaf of choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer towards the bottom of the left hand side of the rectangle layer. Duplicate it then angle it in a different way. Repeat this all the way up the left hand side. Add the butterfly of choice also overlapping the leaves.
Add your text of choice, copyrights, and licensing info.
Save and your done!
