Faery Magick PTU
This tutorial was written on December 4, 2011, 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 Paint Shop Pro.
++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++ Tube of choice or the one I used, which is Shanomneya/Purple Mist by Denise Garbis aka SwtMeloDe which is available for purchase from The Art of Giving you can find out more about this cause and how to purchase the tube HERE *Note for the month of December you buy a tube you get a kit for free!
++Scrap kit of choice, I used Garden Magick by Kate aka 2 Irish Bitches Designs and it’s an exclusive to the Art of Giving. you can find out more about this cause and how to purchase the kit HERE *Note for the month of December you buy a tube you get a kit for free!

++Fonts of your choice. I can’t remember what I used! LOL
**NOTE ADD DROP SHADOWS OF YOUR CHOOSING AS YOU LIKE! AND SAVE AS YOU GO!
Open a canvas of 800x800 and make sure it has a transparent background. Remember we can resize this later.
Next open the large wooden frame you like. I used frame 3 and resized it when I pasted it to the new canvas. So copy and paste the frame into your new canvas. Resize as you like it.
Now open the paper of your choosing. I used paper 1 because it gave me a “scene”. Copy and paste as a new layer and move it below the frame. Adjust it and resize as you like it so it shows the scene you like. Click on the frame layer and activate your magic wand tool. Click inside the frame and go to selections, modify, expand by 10. Back to the paper layer go to selections, invert then edit, clear. The selections, none. Now you have a nice new scene!
Then open the purple mushroom cluster. Resize it then copy and paste as a new layer below the frame layer. Place it somewhere in the bottom center of the frame. Adjust it as you like.
Now open your tube of choice. I used the second close up of the fairy, and copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to where you like, I move it to the right of the frame. Once you are happy with the placement, duplicate it then move one below the frame layer. Go back to the frame layer, and activate your magic wand tool. Click inside the frame and go to selections, modify, expand by ten. Then back to the bottom tube layer, go to selections, invert. Hit the delete key or go to edit, clear. Go to selections none. Back to the top tube layer, activate your eraser brush and remove the parts of the tube you don’t’ want seen outside the frame. To make it look like it’s “popping” out!
Open up the ivy branches, which is leaves 1. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer just above the frame layer. Yes still below the top tube layer. Move to the upper right of the frame. You may need to resize it again some. Adjust as you like. Duplicate it and go to image, mirror then image flip.
Then open the snail stand and resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the upper left of the frame. You may need to adjust and resize it some.
Next open up the pond, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer to the bottom of the snail stand in the lower left corner of the frame.
Add the book to overlap the pond.
Now add a new raster layer and move it to the bottom of the layers so it’s below even the scene paper. Flood fill with your choice of color or paper and add your mask of choice!
