Winter Whispers (PTU)
This tutorial was written on October 15, 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 Baby Cakes Scraps called Shiver can be purchased HERE
++Template 95 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Suzanne Wolcott which can be purchased HERE You must have a valid license in order to use her 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 added a white gradient glow to the template and removed the top doodle layer.
Open the wreath of your choosing. Resize as needed then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the layers palette.
Next open the doodle of choice, resize and copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper left hand side of the canvas. Then move this layer to the bottom below the wreath. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror, then image flip.
Open the snow/bow splatter. Copy and paste as a new layer. On the Rectangle layer (note I merged my rectangles to one layer) go to selections, select all, then selections float then defloat. Go to selections, modify, contract by 4. On the splatter layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections none.
Now open one of the nettings. We’re going to make this look like a window almost. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper left corner of the left rectangle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Then open the doodle two, resize it. Then copy and paste asa new layer, moving to the center between the rectangles. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror and adjust as needed.
Open the corner doodle of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, moving to the upper right hand corner of rectangle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Adjust it as needed.
Next open the bow of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper center part of the tag. Add the snowflake of choice.
Open your tube, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the center bottom of the tag. Add the trio of candles to the bottom also.
Now open the dove of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer on either side of the bow at the top. Add several butterflies of choice through out.
Open a flower of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left hand side of the tag. Add a snow flake of choice to the top of the flower.
Finally add your text, copyrights, licensing info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
