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 Tony Tzanoukakis which you need a license to use.
This tube is a preview of one of the tubes coming soon to Tony's store and has yet to be released.
It will be in the store within a day or two of this tutorial being posted.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Bang Bang by Wicked Creationz Scraps, which matches the tube and is also coming soon to Tony's store and will be released at the same time as the tube.
Font of choice, I am using Mont Royal
Mask: gemsmask 158
Plugins: No outside plugins used
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 with a white background
Open element 26, copy and paste as a new layer
Using your selection tool, click inside the frame
selections, modify, expand 3, invert
Open paper 8, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard
drag this layer below the frame
Open element 20, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 67%, drag that layer below the frame
layer in your layer palette and drag it up so it's showing across the top of the frame
Open element 22, copy and paste as a new layer, drag below the frame but above the paper layer,
arrange in the frame where you want it resize 67%
Do the same with element 15
Open element 19, copy and paste as a new layer, flip, arrange on bottom left, duplicate & mirror
Element 25, arrange on top left
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange on the left. If you are using the same tube as me, resize it 40%
Open element 24, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 80%
Open element 23 copy and paste as a new layer, resize %
Open paper 10, copy and paste as a new layer right above the white background,
apply your mask. Mine wasn't big enough or dark enough so I resized it
by 105% and then duplicated it and merged the two layers together.
now just crop & resize
