For this tut you will need the following: Any version of Paint Shop Pro. I am using PSP X. Scrap kit Sweet Serenity by Wicked Princess Scraps. Click on the name of the kit and go to her blog. Then go on the right hand side to the blinkies for the stores she sells at, and it is on sale at Twilight Scraps. Tube of choice. For this tut I am using the tube that came with the kit. Font of choice, I used Sweetheart Script. Ok, let's get started! Open a new canvas, size 700 x 700, white. Open element WP_SS_BracketFrame, copy and paste as a new layer, rotate to the left by 35. Click inside the bracket frame with your magic wand tool, selections, modify, expand by 3. Open paper 8, copy and paste as a new layer, and resize by 80%. Selections invert, and on your paper layer, click delete on your keyboard and leave selected. Open your tube, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 150%, on the tube layer, hit delete on your keyboard. Deselect, drop the opacity down to around 28 or 30%. Add a drop shadow to your frame. I used 1, 1, 60, 5 throughout the tutorial. Open the featherstar element, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 70% and arrange it at the bottom of the yellow bracket frame. Open the purple doodle, copy and paste as a new layer, drag it down below the paper background layer (that you filled inside the frame with). Open the moon star dangle element. Take your selection tool set on rectangle and draw around the right half of the element. I drew as far as the white star that was after the 5th purple star to the left of the moon. Copy and paste as a new layer, and move it over to the right of your tag, so that the moon and purple stars are mostly outside your frame. You will have some white stars dangling inside your frame. Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize if necessary. I resized mine by 80%, and add a drop shadow. Add your © info and name, crop and resize as necessary and if you want to save it as a transparent tag, delete the white background layer and save as a .png file.
