Gothic Grunge

For this tutorial you will need the following: Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, but I think any version should work. A tube, I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac which you can purchase at AMI. You must purchase his artwork to use it. Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Addicted2Scraps called Bloody Wedding. Let's get started. Open element 3, which is a square frame, resize by about 50%, then change the canvas size to 650x650. Take your selection tool set on rectangle and draw a big rectangle going around the darker part of your frame. Open a paper, copy and paste as a new layer, selections, invert, and click delete on your keyboard. Drag the paper below the frame. Add a drop shadow to your frame layer. Open element 1, copy and paste as a new layer, bring it to the bottom and resize by 35%. Add a drop shadow. Open one of your tubes, copy and paste as a new layer. Resize if necessary, add a drop shadow and then erase the parts that hang over your frame. Open a paper, copy and paste as a new layer, drag it to the bottom, resize if you'd like and apply a mask. Drop the opacity down to about 65% if it's too dark. Add any elements you'd like. Add your ©info and name.
