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 Arthur Crowe, which you need a license to use.
This tube is not yet released but will be in the store shortly after this tut is released, usually within a day or two.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching kit for this tube called Touchdown by Misty Lynn's Creations
and it will be released in the store when the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Play The Game
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
This one is just going to be elements with no frame, so here goes
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 55%
element 6, copy & paste and arrange behind the tube
element 5 arrange on the right
element 2 resize 65% arrange on right
element 2 resize 35% arrange on right
element 12 resize 50% rotate left 30 arrange on left side of scoreboard
element 23 resize 40% rotate right 30 arrange on left
element 1 resize 40% arrange on left
element 15 arrange across top of scoreboard
element 17, resize 40% arrange on left
