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 limited edition bonus tube that was available between August 13 to September 13, 2013
with a $10 purchase she is no longer available, but you could use another witch tube
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Hocus Pocus by Inzpired Creationz
available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps
Font of choice, I am using Nevermore
Mask of your choice
Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 for name (optional)
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
Add the following elements, check my tag for exact placement if you'd like
Grave 1 resize 85% arrange slightly left of the center
Grave 3 resize 85% arrange to the right of grave 1
Grave 2 resize 85% arrange to the right of grave 3
Book on stand arrange in front of grave stones
Cauldron 1 resize 65% arrange to the right of stand
Grass arrange on the left, duplicate & mirror, drag the copy layer below the cauldron layer
Leaves resize 85% arrange in front of cauldron, duplicate, mirror
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 55% if you are using the same one as me
Add paper 4 right above the white background and add your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
