Sweet Dreams Are Made of these PTU
This tutorial was written on March 27, 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 I Dream of La La can be purchased from HERE
++Template 110 by Scraps of enchantment can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Christina McAllister and you can purchase his work from HERE
++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. Repeat this process for the rest of the template. I removed the word art layer and the heart layers.
Add a new raster layer, flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask of choice and merge the group.
Now open the glitter rain, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to just above the top circle layer. On the circle layer go to selections, select all, selections float then selections, defloat. On the glitter rain layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Then open the piano keys, resize as needed then copy and paste as a new layer above the rain layer. On the circle layer go to selections, select all, selections float then selections, defloat. On the piano layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Open the chandelier. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the top center of the circles. Make sure this is on the top layer. Add the flower of your choosing, on either side of it. Duplicate them several times, and arrange so it looks like they are arcking over the circle.
Then open the rose bud vines, resize then copy and paste to the left of the top circle layer. Also move it towards the top. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Next open the black and white road splat thingy lol, Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the frame layer on the rounded square. Adjust it so it looks good. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame and go to selections, modify, expand by 5. On your road layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Then open the clock, resize it, copy and paste as a new layer. Place somewhere on background layer below the frame. We’ll move it around in a minute.
Open the drapery, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the right side of the frame. Adjust where you like it and duplicate it. Go to image, mirror. Erase the parts you don’t want seen outside of the frame. Add the valance to the upper top of the frame, again erasing the parts you don’t want seen outside of the frame.
Now open the cello, resize then copy and paste into the center of the frame. Add a chair and the piano where you like them on either side. Move the clock where you like it now. Add the rose and candles on top of the piano.
Open your tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste to the left of the tag. Adjust as needed.
Add your text, copyrights, license info and tagger markings. Save and your done!
