Black & White Sophistication

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 Ismael Rac which you need a license to use. You can get at his store. Scrap kit of choice. I am using Sophisticated by Juicy Bits. Font of choice, I am using Riesling Mask: WSL Mask297 by Weescotslass Creations Plugins: MuRa Meisters Copies 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. Let's get started! Open frame 1, window, duplicate and close out the original. Rotate to the right by 90 make sure all layers is checked, then resize by 80% and change your canvas size to 650x600. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame, selections, modify, expand by 5. Open a new canvas about 300x300 white background. Copy and paste a close up of your tube inside it. Apply Mura Meister copies using the wallpaper rotate setting, and don't change anything on it, just use the presets for that one. Adjust, blur, gaussian blur, set at 10. Colorize it by going to adjust, hue and saturation and change them both to 0. Now, take this paper you just made and copy and paste it to your original canvas where your frame is. Arrange it how you'd like it, and selections invert, make sure you're on the layer you made and click delete on your keyboard. Drag that layer below your frame. Add a drop shadow to your frame. I used 1, 1, 40, 5 black. Copy and paste your full sized tube as a new layer, resize if needed, I resized mine by 80%. Add your drop shadow. Open element WA1, copy and paste as a new layer, rotate it to the left by 20, drag it below your tube layer. (You might have to change the amount of rotation or not rotate at all depending on the tube you use). Add your drop shadow. Add any other embellishments you'd like to your tag. Open paper 3, open your mask, copy and paste just above your white background. Go to layers, new mask layer, from image, then in the drop down box look for you mask and click on it. make sure you DO NOT have invert mask checked and then apply your mask. Delete the mask layer and click yes on the pop up box. Merge the layers together as a group. I resized my mask by 75%. Add your name. Add your copyright info and any other credits necessary. Crop and resize your tag as necessary and you're done!
