Go Go Music




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 Keith Garvey (Dottie Go Go tube)
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU scrap kit, Music, by Schnegge

Font of choice, I am using Mandala Home

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

open frame 3 copy and paste as a new layer rotate left 90, resize 85%
click inside with your magic wand, make sure you get in the little sections of the ribbon that are inside the frame area
selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 7 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,
leave selected, open your close up tube, copy and paste as a new layer
arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard, and deselect
change the blend mode to Luminance(L) and drop the opacity to 70

Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer and arrange on the right side

hand through the tambourine and then erase the part that shows over her hand, then bring the opacity back up to 100. It should look like she's holding it.

element 19 resize 45% arrange above the elements on the left
element 29 resize 32% arrange to the right of element 19
element 17 resize 40% arrange on bottom behind the other elements
