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 Roman Zaric, which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching scrap kit to go with Roman's tube called Burlesque by Sandy's Design This link will take you right to the tube & kit combo you can purchase together.
Font of choice, I am using Dagobert
Plugins: No outside plugins
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 canvas 850 x 850 white background
Open frame 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 85%
Click inside the center rectangle of the frame with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 4,
open paper 3, copy and paste as a new layer, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard and then deselect. Drag this layer below the frame layer.
Do the same for the two outside rectangles using paper 1, but leave it selected.
Open your tube, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer. Arrange it how you want in the right side, click delete on your keyboard. Copy and paste it again, arrange it on the left side, click delete on your keyboard.
Change the blend mode to Luminance (L) and drop the opacity to about 50.
Mirror the tube so it's facing how it originally was, then copy and paste as a new layer. If you're using the same one as me, resize by 45%. Arrange in the middle of the frame.
Now we'll add our elements. Check my tag for placement.
