Spring Sprung PTU
This tutorial was written on March 20, 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 Amanda can be purchased at 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
++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. Repeat this process for the rest of the template.
Now open the long stem roses. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer above the oval layer. Move it to the right and duplicate it going to image, mirror. Move it so it criss cross’ the other rose.
Then open the butterfly, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom lower of the tag. Duplicate it and move it up towards the top. Angle them how you like.
Open up your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom right of the tag. Adjust as needed.
Now open the hibiscus flower, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom part of the tag. Resize then duplicate several times, move them in a line at the bottom of the template. Adjust as needed.
Open the lady bug, resize then duplicate several times. Move them in between the flowers. Also move two around the canvas where you like them. Add the bee to the top left of the tag.
Add your text, copyrights and tagger markings.
Save and your done!
