This tutorial was written on June 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 Tootypup Scraps called Black Rose and can be purchased at any of the stores listed on her blog HERE
++Template 117 by Ali HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the tube that was in the kit. Please credit the artist 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 doodle layers.
add a new raster layer, flood fill with your choice of paper. Add the mask you like, then merge group.
Next open the doodle that has the hearts, lips and stars. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the top of the canvas, still under the template layers. Duplicate it and go to image, flip.
Now open the arch and gate covered in roses. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move below the frame layer. Using your magic wand tool click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify expand by 2. Go to selections, invert. On the arch layer hit the delete key.
Then open the stair case covered in roses that has the tube on it also. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the left of the template, again above the frame layer. Adjust how you like it. Add the table and chair to the bottom of this.
Open the rose vine swag, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the top of the canvas, then duplicate it. Go to image, flip.
Next open the lamp pole. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right side of the frame. Adjust as needed.
Now open the my valentine music scroll, resize then copy and paste it slightly to the right of the lamp. Angle it as you like it. Add the feathered cupid’s bow of your choice to the side of it.
Then open the piano, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom of the scroll. Adjust as needed.
Open the rose bouquet then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right of the piano.
Finally add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done! Thank you for trying my tutorial.
