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.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Cat Attack by Alika's Scraps.
Font of choice, I am using Imelda
Plugins: No outside filters used
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!
I use a drop shadow on the tubes and elements throughout as needed, and I use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise note.
Open a new canvas 750 x 750 white background.
Open AS25 (the green and blue frames)
Click inside the blue frame, selections, modify, expand by 3, selections, invert.
Open paper 2, copy and paste as a new layer, drag it below the frame. Click delete on your keyboard.
Do the same for the green section of the frame, using paper 7.
Merge these 3 layers together, add your drop shadow,
rotate to the right by 40.
Open AS21 (pink frame) copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 75%.
Take your magic wand, click in the center of the frame, make sure you also click in the two spots where the bow crosses over into the center part of the frame.
Selections, modify, expand by 3.
Open paper 5, copy and paste as a new layer, drag below your frame, selections, invert,
make sure you are on the paper layer, click delete on your keyboard, leave selected.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange it in the frame how you want it, resize if necessary.
If you are using the same tube as me, I resized by 85%.
Open AS26, resize by 50%, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange along the bottom of the frames.
Add any elements you like. I used the following, with any resizing info beside it.
AS7, 75%, rotate left 25
AS47, 85%, rotate right 25
AS70, duplicate, flip
AS45, 20% rotate right 25
Crop, resize, add text, copyright and credits as needed
