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.
This tube is a revamp of an older tube, called Double Pleasure. This revamp is not yet in the store, but
will be within a day or two of this tut being posted.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching kit, called Double Pleasure, by Kandii Popz
which will be available in Isnael's store when the tube is also released.
Font of choice, I am using Alice In Wonderland
Plugins: No outside plugins
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 a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
open Frame 1 copy and paste as a new layer resize 75%
click inside 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, leave selected
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 55% arrange in frame, erase the bits you don't want hanging over the edge
