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 it at his store, here.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Rock Love, a PTU kit by Wicked Princess Scraps. You can find it here on her blog. In the post for the kit, underneath the picture, you can find the link where to purchase the kit.
Font of choice, I am using Sick Capital Vice
Missy tag template 336, which you can find on her blog, Divine Intentionz, here.
Plugins: no outside plugins
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 your template, shift D to duplicate, and close the original.
Delete the "by Missy" and gradient star layers.
Change your canvas size to 800 x 650 to give room to work.
The background layer is hidden, click on the eye so you can see it, flood fill with white.
Fill the layers glitter rectangle right & left, rectangle center, circle 1 center, & rectangle with glitter edges, by clicking on them in your layer pallet, clicking inside them with your magic wand, selections, invert, open paper 4, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard. Deselect, add a drop shadow and delete the original layer.
Do the same with the large circle, star left, star right & thin rectangle center layers but with paper 7. Do not add a drop shadow to the star layers.
Fill circle left, circle right as above using paper 6.
Add a drop shadow to glitter star left and right. Merge the white part of the stars with the middle part it goes to. (that we filled with the pink paper) You want to end up with two stars, both white with a pink center (or whatever color paper you used to fill it)
Click on circle 2 center with your magic wand, selections, invert, open paper 8, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard and leave selected.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, duplicate and hide the top tube layer. Take your eraser tool and erase the bits that hang over the bottom of the circle. Deselect and add a drop shadow to your tube.
Unhide the top tube, drag it up between the star layers, so that the left star is above the tube and the right star is below the tube. Erase the parts of her legs that hang over the bottom of the circle. You don't have to be too careful, you have the bottom tube showing through.
Add the elements you would like. I added the following:
Wire, resize by 60%, image, flip, arrange on the right, duplicate, mirror, arrange on left, merge down, duplicate, flip. Erase any bits that overlap and don't look right.
Keyboard, resize by 40%, drag below right star.
Drums, resized by 40%
Acoustic guitar, resize by 40%, rotate to right by 20
Emo kitty skull, resize by 25%, rotate to right by 20
Music notes, resize by 25%
Crop, resize, add your text, copyrights and credits as needed & save.
