Fairytale Moments PTU
This tutorial was written on July 4th 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 Designs by Stina called Stinarella can be purchased at any of the stores listed on her blog.
++Template 250 By Missy can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the tube that was included in the kit. The tube is by Medi and you can look at her work further by going 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.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Use the mask of your choice and merge the group.
On the bottom template layer, duplicate it. Go to effects, texture effects, and then click on mosaic antique. Set to the settings you like. Merge down one.
Open the flower heart spray you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the left corner, upper. Move it below the bottom template layer. Adjust where you are happy with it, then duplicate, image, mirror.
Below the frame layer, add the castle you like. Adjust it and move it where you like. Erase the parts you don’t want seen outside the frame.
Now open the silver scalloped frame, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it over the existing frame. Set it as you like it.
Then open the flower on the vine. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the frame. Duplicate it and go to image, flip.
Open the stair case of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to eh left, so it looks like its coming out of the top of the silver frame.
Next open the light pole with the clock. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer.
Now open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom left of the tag. Just at the bottom of the stair case.
Then open the rose cluster, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper left of the silver frame. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip. Move and adjust so that it’s in the bottom right corner of the silver.
Now add the carriage you like to the bottom right of the tag.
Add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done!
