Feeling Lucky (FTU)
This tutorial was written on February 16, 2010 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 Gina of Kikeka kits called Feeling Lucky can be found HERE
++Template 154 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the posers included in the kit. Please credit the poser maker, Dark Moon’s creation.
-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. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Add a gradient glow of your choice. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your choice of mask and merge group. Move this layer below your template layers.
Now open the clover leaf frame, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, moving it blow all layers but above the circle layer.
Open the bougainvillea flower, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper left portion of the tag. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Then open the horseshoe, hat and mug. Resize then copy and paste as new layers. Arrange them in the left side template rectangle as you like.
Now open the tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the right side rectangle. Add the pot of gold to the center of the rectangles, above both the clip art layers and poser layer.
Next open the ivy branches, resize then copy and paste as new layer. Move to the left of the canvas. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open the feeling lucky word art, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom of the template layer.
Next open the flower bouquet of your choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the left side of the tag then duplicate it. Go to image, mirror and adjust as needed.
Then open the butterfly of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to where ever you like in the tag. Duplicate it and do the same.
Now open the tag of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom lower corner of the tag as you like.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license number if needed and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
