Trixie Treat


Snaggable tags for this available in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of KennyK-Individual Tube- 31-3 which you need a license to use.  You can purchase this tube at CDO

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU Kit, BooNita by Amy Marie Kits

Font of choice, I am using Breakable

Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.



Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.


Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

add the following elements to your canvas:
element 44 arrange above center
element 54 arrange below window on left
element 57 resize 80% arrange on the right of element 54
element 55 arrange on bottom right

Copy and paste your tube and arrange on left side of window

element 51 arrange on top left, duplicate, mirror, drag over against the original layer, merge down, duplicate, drag to the right. Arrange them how you want them, merge down then flip and drag back to the top, resize 80%

element 67 resize 40% arrange on top right
element 17 resize 45% arrange to the left of your tube
element 38 resize 45% arrange just in front of the window on the right
element 2 resize 45% arrange on the far left
element 34 resize 45% arrange between element 2 and the tube

element 26 resize 45% arrange over window shutter on the left
element 28 resize 45% arrange over the moon
element 48 resize 45% arrange in center
