Ringing in the new year PTU
Ringing in the new year PTU
This tutorial was written on December 30, 2009 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 called Celebrate the 2010 by Disyas Digital Desings can be purchased http://www.scrappetizing.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57
++Template 172 by Designs by Ali can be found http://designsbyali.blogspot.com/search/label/TEMPLATES
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Scott Blair which can be purchased from www.mypsptubes.com You MUST have a valid license in order to use his work.
-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.
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. Add a 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 move it to the bottom of the layers palette. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Add the mask you like and merge visible.
Open the gold star splatter and resize as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer into the left hand corner of the canvas. Move all the way to the bottom but above the mask layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip. Adjust as needed.
Then open the flower of your choice, resize it and copy and paste as a new layer into the center square. Adjust as needed.
Next open the gold ornament you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer and move into the upper left corner of the square.
Now open the pocket watch, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the top center of the tag. Add a button ribbon to the top of the watch.
Open the bow of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the middle right hand side of the square. Duplicate it and move this one to the top of the circle template layer.
Next open the tag you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the right side of the tag. Adjust and move slightly at an angle.
Then open the champagne bottle, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the tag in the bottom left corner. Add the champagne flute behind the bottle at an angle.
Open the top hat, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, move this layer above the flute layer but towards the bottom
Next open the pillow sash set, the party favor and the grapes. Resize them then copy and paste as a new layer into the bottom of the bottle. Arrange as you like them.
Add your tube of choice after resizing to the middle of the canvas. Arrange and adjust as needed
Add your text, copyrights, license number and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
