Friends Forever PTU
This tutorial was written on June 5, 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 Tootypup Scraps called Rainbow Bridge and can be purchased at any of the stores listed on her blog HERE
++Template 190 by Ali at HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork CEI Stickers and you can purchase her 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. NOTE: I deleted the hearts layers and added a gradient glow to the rest of them.
First open the rainbow splatter you like. This will become the “mask” we use for the tag. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it down to the bottom, below all the templates.
Then open three of the flowers you like. Resize one, then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the center of the square layer. Do this again over that particular flower again, and finally a third time. Resizing them just a bit smaller.
Next choose the rainbow with flower scene you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the tag. Move it so it’s towards the bottom of the template layer.
Open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the tag. Duplicate it and go to blur, guassian blur. Add a blur of 3.00. Then change the blend mode on tube layer to overlay. Merge down one layer.
Now open another set of the foliage you like, but the one with animals. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom of the templates (but still the top layer) and over the foliage of the rainbow.
Add a few butterflies and lady bugs through out as you like.
Add the heart tag with bow you like to the upper left of the tag.
Finally add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done!
Thanks for trying my tutorial!
