Friendship Tree PTU
This tutorial was written on July 21, 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 A Care Bear For You and can be purchased at any of the stores listed on her blog HERE
++Template 159 by Ali at HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Suzanne Wolcott 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. Add a gradient glow also of your choosing to each template layer.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Add your mask of choice. Merge the group.
First open the vined flower you like. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to above the large rectangle layer. Duplicate it and then go to image, mirror then image flip.
Then open your first tube, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper right of the rectangle. Adjust as needed. Erase parts you don’t want seen outside of the rectangle.
Now open the heart cluster you like with the flowers. Center in the frame, but below the frame. Using your magic wand tool and click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand it by 3. Go to selections, invert. On the heart layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none.
Now open the other tube of choice, resize it then copy and paste as layer over the frame layer. Adjust and arrange as you like it.
Next open the butterfly of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it at an angle to the upper right hand corner of the frame. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image, flip. Move it to the bottom left hand corner.
Then open the flower cluster you like then resize it. Copy and paste it as a new layer to the upper left hand corner of the rectangle. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image flip. Move to the bottom right hand corner of the rectangle layer. Add a bow of choice to the center of the rectangle at the top.
Finally add your copyrights, license info and tagger markings
Save and your done! Thanks for trying my tutorial.
