This tutorial was written on November 11, 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 “Beyond Blue, Depression Awareness” kit by Designs by Stina which can be found at any of her stores on her blog HERE
++Choice of photo
++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 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.
Open a new canvas of 800x800 (yes this is large, you can resize it later!) Open the paper of your choice and flood fill your new canvas with it.
Next open another paper of your choosing and copy and paste as a new layer. Move it towards the bottom of the canvas so it’s only showing about a quarter of the way. Open another paper of choice then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the left side with about a quarter of it showing also.
Open the postage stamp frame, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Open your photo of choice, and do what ever enhancements that you want to do to it. Copy and paste the picture below the frame. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Go to selections, expand, expand by 6. Go to seleections, invert. On the picture layer, hit the delete key. Go to selections, none. On the frame layer add your gradient glow of choice. Merge down one layer. Duplicate it and on the bottom one angle slightly.
Now open the bougainvillea flower of your choosing, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper right of the frames, in between them. Duplicate it then go to image, mirror, then image flip. Adjust this one where you like it.
Now open the flower clip you like, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom right hand corner of the frame. Duplicate it and spin it around where you like it. Add a flower you like over the top of these.
Next open a flower you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right side of the frame. Duplicate it several times and move it where you like it as a line down the side.
Then open the wrap ribbon you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer and angled in the upper left hand corner.
Open the awareness ribbon of your choosing, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom left of the frame. Add two butterflies where you like them.
Finally resize if you like, add any copyrights and texts.
Thank you for trying my tutorial!
