Jealous Much PTU
This tutorial was written on May 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 Athena Designs called October Romance can be purchased HERE
++Template 346 by Missy can be found HERE
++Tubes of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Keith Garvey and it can be purchased 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.
Add a new layer, flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask of choice and merge the group. Move to the bottom of the layers palette.
Then open the rose of choice. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it below the large circle’s glitter layer. Move it so it’s at a slight angle. Duplicate it and move the rose next to the other one.
Now open the lacey moon. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to just above the bottom left circle layer. Duplicate and go to image, mirror. Move it up to the top circle layer on the right. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the one circle layer, go to selections, float then selections default. On the moon layer hit the delete key. Do the same for the moon at the upper right.
Next open the fan you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left of the frame layer, behind the background. Angle it as you like. Duplicate it and move it to the upper right side. Angle it the way you like it.
Open the wrapped bow, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer at the top of the big circle layer. Erase the parts that are hanging over the circle.
Add the bracket of your choice after resizing to the bottom left of the frame and the upper right of the frame.
Now open your first tube, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the top right of the frame, adjust as needed.
Then open your other tubes, copy and paste after resizing and place where you want them in the frame. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame layer. Go to selections, modify, expand. Go to selections, invert. On the tube layer, hit the delete key. Then continue it for the other frames and tubes.
Open your butterflies of choice, resize them then copy and paste as a new layer. Move them at an angle around the top circle layer as you like.
Next open the flower you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate it then place on either side of the bottom rectangle.
Add any text you like, copyrights, license info and tagger markings. Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
