Natural Beauty PTU
This tutorial was written on July 4, 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 Nikki of Creative Intentionz called Oh So Natural can be purchased from HERE
++Template 333 By Missy can be found HERE
**NOTE: Scroll down on her blog and look on the left hand side to find the bundled template download links.
++ Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the work Jamie kidd which can be purchased from CILM
++Font and mask of choice
-penta, dot and cross
-muera meister copies
-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.
Go to image, canvas size, and change the canvas size to 800 by 650. This gives us more room to work with!
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 word art.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Send it to the bottom of the palette and add your mask of choice. Merge the group.
Open up the daisy flower you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Use your plug in muera meister copies and set on encircle with shift x and y to 80. Which ever number on the flowers you like.
Then open your leaves on the vine. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the left of the tag, and just above the bottom circle layer. Duplicate then go to image, mirror.
Now open the bow and ribbon you like. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the upper left, adjust as you need to. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Next open your tube, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. I used the close up tube that came in the pack I purchased. Move to above the small rectangle layer at the left. Resize and adjust where you like it. Duplicate, then go to adjust, blur by 3.00 then change the blend mode to overlay. Merge down one layer. Go to texture, blinds, and set to 2 and then to the opacity you like. Next add the plug in penta, on dot and cross. Whatever setting you would like. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. On the rectangle layer go to selections, float, selections, defloat and then invert. Hit delete on the tube layers. Go to selection, none.
Open the fog element, resize then copy and paste as a new layer above the top circle layer. go to selections, float, selections, defloat and then invert. Hit delete on the fog layer.
Then open the folded paper hearts trails, resize then copy and paste as new layers. Move to the left of the circle. . go to selections, float, selections, defloat and then invert. Hit delete on the hearts layers.
Open your tube of choice again, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the circle. Duplicate it, we’re going to make it look like it’s popping out of the circle. On the circle layer go to selections, float, selections, defloat and then invert. Hit delete on the bottom tube layer. On the top tube layer, erase the parts on the bottom you don’t want seen outside of the circle. Add the bow of choice to the top of the circle, below the top tube layer.
Next open the rusty key, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the circles, angle it to the left. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror.
Now copy and paste the scroll beading, resize it then angle it to the left. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Add the cardboard heart of your choosing. Add a butterfly of your choosing where you like them.
Finally add your text, copyrights and tagger markings. Save and your done!
