Trick or Treat PTU
Trick or Treat
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 Trick or Treat can be purchased HERE
++Template 54 by Tracy at Freebie Friends can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the one from the kit. If you choose to not use any outside tubes, please do credit the designer on your tag.
++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.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge the group.
Open the spiderweb element and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer moving it to the top right hand corner of the tag.
Then open the pumpkin lights and resize. Copy and paste them as a new layer. Move them to the top of the rectangle box.
Now open the haunted house, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left of the tag. Add the tree of choice after resizing and move below the house layer. Make the tree peek out from behind the house. Then also add the broom of choice to it.
Add the moon and ghost to the top left and center of the tag.
Open the cauldron, candy, and pumpkin of choice. Resize then group them at the bottom of the haunted house, arranging them as you like. Open the bag of choice and post to the left.
Open your tube of choice, resize and then paste where you like
Add your text, copyrights, credits and tagger markings. Save and your done! Ty for trying my tutorial!
