September Romance




Snaggable tag set for this tag is 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 Nocturne (Statice tube) which you need a license to use. 


Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, September Romance by BLT Dezignz
I am using the tagger size kit, if you use the full size kit, you will need to resize your elements a bit differently  

Font of choice, I am using Geordie Girl

Mask: DVB Mask 80
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.

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

open frame 2 copy and paste as a new layer resize 85%
