Baddest Witch

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,called Halloween Witch is a preview of one of the tubes coming soon to Tony's store and is not yet out. It will be out within a day or two of the date this tut is posted.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Witch Broom'n,  by BLT Dezignz which is also for sale at Tony T's store. It was made to go with the Witch Broom'n tube. 

Font of choice, I am using Grenouille

Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show. 

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 and close the original
Delete the CR layer
Change the canvas size to 850 x 900 to give yourself some 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, 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

These are the papers or colors I used for each layer
layer 1 use paper 11
layer 2 use paper 2
layer 3 use paper 2
layer 4 use paper 6
layer 5 use paper 1 resize 60%
layer 6 use paper 7
layer 7 use paper as is add drop shadow
layer 8 use paper 7
layer 9 use paper as is add drop shadow
layer 10 use paper 7
layer 11 use paper as is add drop shadow
layer 12 ad noise monochrome, uniform, set at 65

Make your right front square layers active, selections, select all, float, invert
copy and paste a tube as a new layer, resize 55% arrange in frame, duplicate & mirror

Open your main tube, resize 40% if you're using the same one as me, place in center below the word art

Now for our elements
Hat resize 40% arrange on the bottom left
Cat resize 40% arrange on bottom left
Wiches Brew resize 45% arrange on bottom left
element resize arrange

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
