Welcome to my fairytale (ptu)
This tutorial was written on December 29, 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 “My Doll” by Polka Dot Scraps can be purchased HERE
++Template 155 by Designs by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice. I used the princess’ from the kit.
-Eye Candy Gradient glow
++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. 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.
Open the doodle scatter. Copy and paste as a new layer, moving it below the frame layer. Duplicate it and go to image, flip. Erase the parts you don’t want seen outside of the frame.
Next open the sun, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of canvas, below the frame layer. Add a cloud to either side of the sun. Make sure the sun layer is above the clouds.
Then open the princess castle , resize it then copy and paste as a new layer into the center of the frame layer. Adjust as needed.
Now open one of the princess’, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the castle.
Open the wrap ribbon/bow and resize. Copy and paste as a new layer, adjusting it so it it looks like it is wrapping around the frame.
Then open the other princess, resize it then copy and paste after mirroring to the right side of the canvas.
Then open the vine, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the frame. Add various flowers you like over the vine.
Now open the doodle string, resize and rotate 90 degrees. Copy and paste as a new layer, moving to the left of the frame.
Open the princess crown and copy and paste as a new layer in the bottom circle over the end of the string.
Next open the bow with clasp you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer at the top of the top circle. Add the butterfly you like.
Now add your text, copyrights and tagger markings
Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
