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 a FTU kit by Wicked Princess Scraps called You Are Beautiful.
She has a link on here post sending you to here mediafire folder to download FTU kits.
When you click my link to go to her page, it will have a link in that post to go to her mediafire page and you will have to scroll through the pages to get the kit. They are posted in alphabetical order though, so it's not too hard to find. :)
Font of choice, I am using GeeKnee
Plugins: Eye candy 4000 gradient glow, Penta.com color dot
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 3 & small squares layers
Change the canvas size to 850 x 850 pixels
Flood fill the background layer with white
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, 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
I used these papers on each layer:
Raster 2 & copy of raster 2, use paper 4
rectangle shape left & right, use paper 3
square left & right, use paper 2
rectangle back, use paper 10
For the three white frames, add/remove noise with these settings:
Rectangle: No paper, apply penta.com color dot with the following settings top to bottom
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange on right
Add the following elements, see my tag for placement
Flower swag 2
Flower cluster 3, resize 50%
wire drag down below all the frames
Doodle, resize 50% apply gradient glow of 4 white
flower scatter, resize 50%
Open paper 9, copy and paste as a new layer right above the white background layer, apply your mask
crop and resize
