Alaina's Dream

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 Keith Garvey which you need a license to use.  

Collab template 4 by Deb & Tammi available at Creative Misfits Creations blog.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Magical Dream a PTU kit by Inzpired Creationz  available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps.

Font of choice, I am using Penabico

Plugins: no ourside plugins needed

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 7, 10, 12 and copy of  Vector 11

Change the cavas size to something like 950 x 850 so you have more room to work

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette. 
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer, 
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

Some layers, like the frames or dotted lines, you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

I used these papers for each layer:
Raster 3 & 5 use paper 3
Raster 2 & 4 use paper 1
Raster 6 use paper 2
Raster 1 use paper 11
Raster 11, 9 & 8 use paper 5

Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange on your tag, and erase the bits the hang over where you don't want them.

Add the following elements, check my tag for exact placement

Branch 1, resize 65% duplicate, mirror, duplicate again and drag over toward the empty area in the bottom middle
Rose 1, resize 28% duplicate a few times and arrange around on the leaves
Flower 2, resize 31% duplicate and arrange around on the leaves
Flower 4, resize 28% duplicate and arrange around on the leaves
Bow 1, resize 55%, duplicate & mirror
Bow 2, resize 60%
Bird resize 30%
Fairy dust resize 50%
scattered petals drag layer below tube and above template layers
Doodle 1 drag just below scattered petals layer
Lanterns, resize 75% arrange on left just under the tube, duplicate & mirror

Open paper 12, copy and paste as a new layer just above the white background layer and apply your mask
My mask wasn't quite dark enough so I duplicated it a couple times and merged the layers together.

Crop & resize
add your copyrights & credits as needed
add text and save
