Sexy Witch



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 Alicia Mujica (Drusila tube) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Enchantment, by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me 
 

Font of choice, I am using MF Summertime

Mask: WSL84 by Weescotslass Creations list of links to masks is on the right sidebar

Plugins: no outside plugins
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 your template, shift D to duplicate and close the original
Delete the following layers: CR, 4, 5, 9

Change the canvas size to 900 x 900, unhide the white background and flood fill it with white

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette.
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer,
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

Some layers, you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

I used the following papers for each layer:
layer 1 use paper 23
layer 2 use paper 23
layer 3 use paper 4
layer 6 use paper 20
layer 7 use paper 4
layer 8 use paper 24


On the word art layer add noise, uniform, monochrome 60
then select the layer and go to selections, select all, float, defloat, modify, expand 2
add a new layer below the word art, flood fill with #056f89 and deselect
merge it with the original word art layer


Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 50%
make the big center square active, click on that layer with your magic wand, anywhere outside the square
arrange your tube over the template where you want, then take your eraser and 
erase where the tube overhangs the square on the right
deselect
 add the following elements:
 element 92 resize  50% arrange on bottom right
element 27 resize 60% arrange across the top of the template
element 55 resize  25% arrange on top left
element 78 resize  45% arrange on bottom left, erase the handle

 element 85 resize  45% mirror & arrange behind & above the cauldron
duplicate & mirror, drag down behind ghost
element 60 resize 45 arrange behind other flowers on the right

element 83 resize  25% arrange in front of the right side of the cauldron
element 34 resize  25% arrange on right, in the center area
element 29 resize 40% arrange on bottom behind other elements
element 30 resize  30% arrange in front of cauldron
element 4 arrange just behind tube on right, duplicate & mirror
element 3 arrange behind tube
