Spring Sprung PTU
This tutorial was written on March , 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 Spring Thing by Tishia can be purchased HERE
++Template Spring has sprung by Daira can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work CEI Stickers and it can be purchased from HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font 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. **Note I adjusted the word art layer a bit to move it out of the way.
Open the hill, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the canvas and adjust as needed. Make sure its below the template flower and leaves layers.
Then open the picket fence, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the canvas. Adjust as needed.
Next open your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the flower template layer and then off to the left a bit.
Now open the house, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom right of the canvas. Add a kite in the upper right hand corner of the canvas. Also add a cloud.
Open the bow and button of your choice. Resize then copy and paste as new layers. Move into the center of the template flower.
Then open the tree, and a flower. Resize them then copy and paste the tree to the right side, and move below the hill layer. Adjust it off to the right a little. Move the flower to the left side of the tag.
Next open the butterflies of your choosing. Resize them then copy and paste as new layers through the tag as you like them. Add a tag where you like it too.
Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
