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. At the time of this tutorial the tube was not yet in the store, but it will be coming out later today or tomorrow
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching scrap kit called 2013XGirl by Sandy's Design, which is also available at Ismael Rac's store. This will be available when the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Brave Mountains
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
Copy and paste frame 1 as a new layer, resize by 85%
click inside it with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert.
Open paper 7, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard, drag below the frame, leave selected.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, arrange inside the frame, click delete on your keyboard and deselect. Drop the opacity to about 75%
Hide the white background layer and merge visible, then unhide the background, drag the frame layer down a little lower in the canvas.
Open city scene, copy and paste as a new layer, pull it up a little higher than the frame and drag that layer below your frame layer in the layer palette.
Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if needed (I resized mine 40%), arrange on left.
Add your elements. I used:
(see my tag for reference)
Car 2, mirrored
handbag 2, resize by 50%, rotate right 25
cocktail 2, resize 45%
lipstick, resize 50%
Stars 2 arrange on the bottom
