All Katie PTU
This tutorial was written on April 15, 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 All About Attitude by Crazed’s Creations can be found HERE
++Template 117 by Ali can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the tubes that were included in the kit by KMA Dezigns
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
-Muera Meister Copies
++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. Add a gradient glow of your choosing also.
Go to the background layer at the bottom of the layers palette, and flood fill the background layer with your choice of paper.
Then open the glitter splatter things. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to just above the mask layer. Open a second one and rotate it and paste where you like it. Duplicate them both and go to image, mirror.
Open the flower of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Using your plug in muera meister copies, use the encircle option with the shift x and y set to 50. Move just above the splatter layer.
Next open the heart key. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move them above the rectangles on the right. Angle it as you like towards the top. Add the guitar of your choosing towards the bottom end of the rectangles.
Then open the bling rain, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the frame layer. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand by 6. Go to selections, invert. On the rain layer hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the frame layer, and to the right. Duplicate it and on the top layer, go to adjust, blur and guassian blur of 3. Change the blend mode to overlay. Merge down one layer. Add your other tube of choice to the left side. Due the same thing as you did before wit the blur. Using your magic wand tool, click inside of the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand it by 6. Go to selections, invert. On the tube layers hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Now open the next tube. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the center of the tag. Do the guassin blur trick again to this tube too.
Then open the candle, cell phone, sachet bag, note, shoe, lipstick and butterfly of your choosing. Arrange them like you want, at the bottom left corner.
Open the looped ribbon, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it and move each one to the upper corners of the frames.
Next open the feather pen, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the frame. Open the butterflies you like, resize them then copy and paste as you like through out the tag.
Finally add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done!
