Spring Dreams

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  VeryMany which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit called Dreaming by Designs by Sarah 

Punk Template 1 by Brutal Designs

Font of choice, I am using Ventography

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 it.
Delete raster 15 layer that has the credits on it.

I resized mine to 600 x 600 pixels then changed the canvas size to 800 x 800 and flood filled the background layer white just to have extra room to work and the white background to see it better. You can do this or skip that step.

Fill each of the layers of the template with papers from the kit by making each layer active, clicking on it with your magic wand, selections, invert, open the paper you want, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange it, then click delete on your keyboard. Then deselect the layer (selections, select none) and then delete the template layer from your tag leaving just the papers that you filled the layers with.

Add any elements you'd like. I used:

Grass - place along the bottom of the template

Flower 8, resize by 45%, place along bottom right side of grass,
duplicate, mirror, place behind and slightly above the first flower layer.
See tag for placement.

Flower 11, resize by 90%, place along right side of template.

Flower 7, resize by 60%, arrange on top left of template above the other flowers.
Duplicate and mirror

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if needed. Arrange on the hill of grass.
Apply Xero Porcelain with default settings but change blue to zero

butterfly 2, resize by 45%, arrange on the top left side of tag

Flower 9, resize 25%, arrange on bottom left over the bottom of the flower vine.

Flower 3, resize by 25%, arrange on bottom left, drag layer below flower 9

Sparkles 1, copy and paste as a new layer, drag the layer down so it's behind the tubes but above the other layers.

Butterfly 1, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 25% arrange on the right above the flowers (see tag for placement)

Butterfly 6, copy and paste as a new layer, mirror, resize by 50%, sharpen, arrange on the vine of the flowers on the left side.

Crop your tag if needed, resize, add your credits and copyright info and your name, then save.
