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 called Lady V and is not yet out in his store, but is coming soon and will be released
within a day or two of this tutorial being posted.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching PTU kit for this tube, called Lady V and it's by Kandii Popz
this will also be available in Ismael's store when the tube is released
Font of choice, I am using Black Night
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 coffin element copy and paste as a new layer resize 80% rotate right 75
Open tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 40%
Add the following elements, you can check my tag for a better idea of placement
blood drops resize 45% arrange along rigth side of coffin, duplicate, and drag to the left, erase any extra
candles resize 35% arrange on right
drink resize 30% arrange on right
grass resize 60% duplicate a couple times arrange around tag, you may want to resize some a little smaller.
cat resize 55% mirror, arrange on left
tree resize 80% arrange on the right behind everything, duplicate & mirror
moon resize 45% arrange between the tree layers
Batty, resize 30% arrange over moon
batty 2, resize 30% arrange over moon
