Snow in love with you (PTU)
This tutorial was written on February 11, 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 by Crazed's Creations called Snow In Love can be purchased from HERE
++Template 121 By Ali can be found HERE
++2 Tubes of choice, or the ones I used. I used the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis and you can purchase his work from MPT You must have a valid license in order to use his work.
++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.
Next open the doodle bead swirl of your choosing. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper left of the canvas. Move below the template layers. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip.
Now open the snow drift you like, resize and crop as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer and move below one of the frame layers. Adjust as needed. Duplicate it and move it below the other frame layer.
Then open the tubes of your choosing. Resize as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer and move under one of your frames. Now I chose to make the tubes look like they were popping out of the frame. To do this, duplicate your tube. Move one above the frame layer. Use your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand by 3. On the tube layer below the frame, hit the delete key. Go to selections then none. On the tube layer above the frame erase the parts you don’t want seen outside the frame. Repeat this process for the other tube.
Open the heart beads. Resize and crop as needed. Copy and paste as a new layer and move just above the frame layers. Position them so they are at the bottom of the frame. Duplicate it and move it over to the opposite frame.
Next open the rose with long stems you like. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move one below the top tube layer at the top of it. Move and position as needed. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Move this one below the other tube layer. Again position as needed.
Now open the heart charm, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the top right hand corner of the upper frame. Add a dove to the top of it.
Then open the bow you like. Resize it and copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it several times and move them in between the snowflake layers around the top half of the circle.
Open the broken heart element. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it several times then move in between the snowflake layers on the bottom part of the circle.
Now open the tree, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Add a candy kiss to the right bottom large snowflake.
Add flower of choice to the top frames, bottom left hand corner.
Open the flower you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it a few times and move them all around the tag as you like.
Finally add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
