Bewitching Day PTU
Bewitching Day PTU
This tutorial was written on October 10, 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 Tishia called Halloweenie can be purchased HERE
++Template by Melissa can be found HERE
++Tube of choice. I used the clip art witch that was included in the kit.
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++++Font and mask of choice
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
-This a FULL size kit. You will need to resize as you go!
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 deleted the word art layer.
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 haunted house. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the rectangle layer. Add a gradient glow of your choice.
Next open the spider web, resize it and add a gradient glow. Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the first circle layer.
Then open the tree, resize and copy then paste as a new layer. Move it to the left and below the house layer.
Open the spider with the string, resize it. Then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of the canvas towards the bottom of the house. Add a bow of choice at the top of the string.
Add the bat of choice after resizing to the upper right hand corner of the tag.
Open the witch and resize it. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the right of the tag.
Then open the pumpkin and owl to the tree. Make sure your resize and adjust as needed.
Now add the moon after resizing to the upper right hand side of the tag.
Add the cauldron and ghost of choice to the bottom left of the tag after resizing.
Finally add any text you like, and save!
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
