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 Charming, a PTU kit by Pimp'd Designz.
Rectangle template 3 by Melissa's Creations which you can find on the Creative Misfits blog.
Font of choice, I am using Riesling
Plugins: Xero Porcelain
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 your template, shift D to duplicate, close the original.
Delete Raster 5
Resize to 650 x 650 pixels
Change canvas size to 850 x 850 pixels
Add a new layer, drag it to the bottom and flood fill with white.
Fill each of the layers of the template with your papers. Do this by clicking on the template layer with your magic wand, then selections, invert, copy and paste the paper as a new layer, then click delete on your keyboard. Deselect and delete the original layer of the template.
The raster 2 layer is not going to work very well clicking with the magic wand, so instead, go to selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, then do as instructed above.
Make the front square layer active, selections, select all, float, invert,
open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if needed, arrange in the square,
click delete on your keyboard. Deselect and duplicate.
On the top tube layer, adjust, blur, gaussian 3, set the blend mode to soft light.
On the bottom layer, adjust, hue & saturation, change both to 0.
Apply Xero Porcelain with the default settings, except change the blue to 0.
Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if needed, I resized mine by 55%
Arrange on the tag to the left.
Add any elements you'd like to the tag,
Print02, used as a mask, turn to right 90 and drag down just above the white background layer.
I also dropped the opacity to about 70.
