Rain Drops PTU
This tutorial was written on February 21, 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 called Blue Lagoon by Julia Designs can be purchased from http://www.scrappinbratz.com/shoppe/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19_150&products_id=2729
++Template 12 by HippieDaze can be found http://hippiedazetuts.blogspot.com/search/label/Templates
++ Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Suzanne Wolcott and it can be purchased www.gorjussart.co.uk
-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.. 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 your mask of choice and merge group.
Then open the criss cross sticks, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move all the way down just above the mask layers.
Open the ivy, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the right of the square. Duplicate it and go to image mirror.
Next open the rose blossom, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom of the ivy stem on the right. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Then open the small blue blossom. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to where you like on the right side. Duplicate and move it to where you want it on the left side. Do the same with a bow of your choosing.
Now open the heart dangle with bow you like. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right triangle layer. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Open your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Add the gradient glow of your choosing. Center into your canvas.
Finally add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done!
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
