Be Aware PTU
Be Aware PTU
This tutorial was written on October 12, 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 Nee of Envied And Admired Scraps called Think Pink can be purchased HERE
++Template 4 by Tracy at Freebie Friends can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the beautiful artwork of Steve Bair which can be purchased HERE You must have a valid UYA license in order to use his work.
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Mask and font of choice.
-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.**NOTE I increased the canvas size by going to image, canvas size and changed it to 600x600. Also I added a gradient glow to the word art.
Add a new raster layer and send it to the bottom. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge group.
Open the glitter rain of your choice. Resize if needed then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the circle frame layer. On the frame layer, use your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify expand by 2. Go to selections, invert. On the rain layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Now repeat this process for the Polaroid frame layers and the rectangle frame layers.
Next open the rose stems that kind of curve at the top of them. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the rectangle layers and to the right. Make it so the bottom of the stem is at the bottom of the rectangle. Duplicate it then go to image, mirror. Duplicate it again and go to image, flip. Then once more duplicate and go to image, mirror.
Open your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the Polaroid frame layer on the right. Use your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand by 5. Go to selections, invert. On the tube layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none. Duplicate this layer and go to image, mirror. Adjust as needed so that it sits in the frame nicely.
Add the support ribbon of your choice to the center frame.
Now open the candle of choice. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it in between the left and center frame. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Add a butterfly of choice to the top of the frame, where the roses meet . Then add the wings of choice to the bottom, along with a gem of choice.
Add your copyrights, license info, tagger markings and text. Save and your done!
