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.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Fall Fancy by Pimp'd Designz
Available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps
Font of choice, I am using Cinnamon Cake
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 a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 40% if using the same one as me
For the elements, I used the following, you can check my tag for exact placement if you'd like.
twig 2, resize 45% arrange by pumpking, duplicate, mirror
pumpkin (the one that came with the tube) resize 45% arrange to the right & behind the tube
flower 3 resize 40% arrange in front of left pumpkin, duplicate, move by right pumpkin,
duplicate & resize 75% arrange on left in the twig
Twig resize 40% arrange between pumpkins, duplicate arrange around tag
leaf 1, resize 25% arrange behind one of the flowers, duplicate a couple times, arrange around tag
leaf 2 resize 25% duplicate a couple times, arrange around the tag
leaf 3 resize 35% arrange in front of pumpkin on right, duplicate, mirror arrange over other pumpkin
umbrella resize 45% arrange on left below all the layers
mushrooms resize 15% duplicate, arrange in a couple of the empty spots in tag
acorns resize 25% arrange in a couple empty spots in the tag
pincone resize 35% arrange in an empty spot around pumpkins
crop and resize
