Snow Angel PTU
Snow Angel PTU
This tutorial was written on December 3, 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 by Crazed Creations called Silver Bells can be purchased HERE
++Template 87 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Steve Baier. You must have a valid license in order to use his work. You can purchase it from HERE
-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 your choosing. 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 palette. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask and merge the group.
Open the snow drift, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, below the top rectangle layer. What I did was leave it fairly big, then after copying and pasting I went to the top scalloped layer and did selections, float, selections, defloat then selections invert. Then go to the snow drift layer and hit the delete layer. Go to selections, none.
Add the glitter gems to the bottom below the rectangle layer on the bottom. Repeat the process above.
Next open the wreath, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, to the top portion of the template layer. Move it down just a bit.
Then open the bundle of pine, ornaments and bows. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the top left of the tag. Notice we’re going to put it into center, but you need to angle it as you like. Once you have it, duplicate and go to image, mirror. Then add the mistletoe you like to the center of that.
Add your tube of choice after you have resized it. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move her below the ornamental layer and adjust as needed.
Now open the snowflake you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper right hand side of the tag, move it also below the ornamental layer. Duplicate it go to image, mirror then duplicate it again. Go to image, flip. Duplicate once more and go to duplicate and image mirror.
Open the Christmas tree you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the tag. Add the bells of choice to the top left ornamental layer.
Then open the ornaments you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom ornamental layer. Duplicate it and go to image mirror. Add the poinsetta to each of the top of the ornaments.
Add your text of choice, copyrights, license info, tagger markings and your done!
Don’t’ forget to save.
