Hello Gorgeous PTU
This tutorial was written on March 3, 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 called Que Sera Sera by Mystical Illusionz can be purchased HERE
++Template by Ali, Valentine 6 can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work Keith Garvey can be purchased from HERE
-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.
Open one of the round frames you like, resize if needed then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the frame layers. Duplicate it and go to image, flip. Using the magic wand tool, click inside the top frame. Go to selections, modify and expand by 4. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Remember to go to selections, none. Duplicate it and go to image, flip.
Then open the lace ups you like. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the hearts layers, but above the frame.
Next open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it above which ever large heart you like. ON that heart layer, go to selections, select all then, selections float then selections, defloat. Now go to selections, invert. On the tube layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none. Do this again for the other heart.
On the top tube/heart layer, duplicate the tube. Go to blur, guassin blur and set it at 3.00. Change the blend mode to overlay on this layer and merge down. Repeat the process for the second tube layer.
Open the flower of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper right hand side, moving it so it sits between the two top hearts. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror and move to the middle on the left. Duplicate it again and move it to the bottom right of the tag.
Next open the tag of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer, moving it to the upper right. Add a bow of choice to the top of it.
Then open the string bow you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left, duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Move it down where you like it on the right side.
Add your tube of choice, adjusting and moving where you like. Duplicate it and go to adjust, blur, guassin blur set at 3.00 Change the blend mode to overlay and merge down.
Now add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings. Save and your done!
