Proud Nascar Babe PTU
Proud Nascar Babe
This tutorial was written on September 21, 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 Me called Hot Rod Dreams can be purchased HERE **NOTE: This kit is EXCLUSIVE to this store, and the only place you will find it.
++Template 124 by Ali can be found ++Template 79 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the FTU artwork of Popeye Wong and you can find it HERE
++Font of choice
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
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.
Open up the horizontal road and resize as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer, moving this layer to the bottom of the layers palette. Also move it to the bottom of your canvas.
Next open up two of the torn papers you like. Resize as needed. Take the first one, then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the road layer. Add the next torn paper layer and mirror it. Duplicate both of them and mirror them opposite of each other and move on up to the top so now you have what looks like colored mountains in the back ground.
Then open a glitter splat of your choosing. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to just above the road layer and center it where you like.
Add a flag of your choice, moving the layer below the template layer and to the upper left. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Now open the railroad crossing sign you like, and copy and paste as a new layer after resizing. Move it to just below the middle circle layer. I moved mine slightly to the left.
Open the flame of choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer, placing in the middle of the center circle.
Then open the pit pass and speed limit signs you like. Resize them and copy and paste to the upper left and bottom of the middle circle.
Open the speedometer, bottle cap, and steering wheel you like. Resize them then copy and paste as new layers into the center of each of the circles on the right side.
Add your tube of choice, centering it where you like.
Then add your traffic light of choice to the bottom left of the tag.
Add any text you like, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done! Thank you for trying my tutorial!!
