Times Past

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 Times Past, which is an exclusive collab that you can purchase at Designer Scraps. I am using Krissy's portion of the kit for this tut. 

Font of choice, I am using Pushkin

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.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open a new template 750 x 750, white background.

Open frame 1, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 70%, click inside with your magic wand, expand by 3. Open paper 6, resize by 70%, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard & leave selected.

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer just above the paper we just put inside the frame, arrange how you want, click delete on your keyboard, deselect.

Paste your tube on again, this time resize it by 45% (if using the same one as I am, otherwise, resize it to whatever size fits your tag). Arrange it over the top of the frame (see tag for reference).

Open bird ornament 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 50%, mirror, arrange somewhere on the top of the frame.

Open foliage, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 80%, arrange along the bottom.

Open flower 1, copy and paste as a new layer, resize about 25%, duplicate, arrange each on on opposite ends of the foliage. Duplicate one and resize that one by about 80%, arrange somewhere along the top of foliage.

Open clock 1, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to about 33%, arrange on the right side of the foliage, drag this layer below the foliage layer.

Open leather gloves 1, resize by 20%, arrange by your tube & foliage.

Crop & resize.
