Welcome to Paradise PTU
This tutorial was written on February 22, 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 Acid Rock by me which can be purchased from HERE
++Template 101 by Yvette can be found HERE
++ Tube of choice, or the one I used. I used the work of Joel Adams. You can purchase his art from HERE You must have a valid license to use his work.
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
-Penta dot and cross
++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 the gradient glow of your choosing. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Add a new raster layer, flood fill with your choice of paper and move to the bottom of the layer palette. Add your choice of mask and merge group.
Then open the rose vine, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Rotate it so that it’s up right. Move it below all the layers but above the circle template layer.
Next open the star trail, add a gradient glow to it. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right of the canvas and make sure it’s just above the circle layer also.
Now open the guitar of your choosing. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Angle it the way you like it and move it to the upper right of the tag, just above the star layer.
Open the button frame, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it at an angle below the rectangle layers. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand and add a new layer. Flood fill with your choice of paper. Go to selections, none. Move this layer below the frame layer.
Next open the flame, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left a bit of the rectangle layers. Make sure this is at the top of the layers Angle it to the left a bit, then duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Adjust as needed.
Then open the microphone and cassette. Resize them then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left of the tag, place them overlapping where you like them.
Now open the speaker. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the tag. Angle it just a bit. Add the drum set to the left of that just a bit.
Add the skull and crossbones after resizing to the upper right hand corner of the rectangles.
Open the ball and change. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom left of the rectangles.
Next open your tube of choice. Resize it as needed then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it into the center of the tag where you like. Duplicate it then on the top layer go to blur, guassin blur and change the blur to 3.00. Change the blend mode on the layer’s palette to overlay. Merge down. Now dulicate it again and on the bottom layer use your plug in, penta dot and cross on whatever setting you like. On the top tube layer, change your opacity to 50.
Now open your winged tag. Resize and add your glow of choice. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the tag, centering as you like it.
Add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings. Save and your done!
