Little Love Notes

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 Tearful Love by Alika's Scraps. 

Font of choice, I am using Dagobert.

Plugins: No outside plugins 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!

Add a drop shadow to the elements as you need to throughout the tut. I used 1, 1, 50, ,5 unless otherwise noted.

Open a new canvas 750 x 750 with a white background.

Open element AS26, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 50%, rotate to the right by 90.
Click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 3, invert.

Open paper 10, copy and paste as a new layer, drag below the frame, click delete on your keyboard.

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange where you want, take your eraser tool and erase the bits that hang over the frame.

Add the following elements resized to the amount beside it:

AS46, arrange on top left, duplicate, mirror, flip, merge together
drop opacity to about 60
AS95, 65%
AS81, 75%
AS70, mirror
AS83, 45%
AS54, 45%
AS85, 35%

Crop, resize, add text, copyright info and/or credits as needed.
Save and you're done!
