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 Roman Zaric, which you need a license to use.
This tube is a preview and will be released in the next day or so after this post being published.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU by Sandy's Design, it's called Yami, and it matches the tube
It will be available in Roman's store as soon as the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using My Princess Likes a Frog
Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (optional) for text
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 3 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 12 copy and paste as a new layer
arrange in the frames, click delete on your keyboard
Open a tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, arrange on the left, click delete on your keyboard
Change the blend mode to Luminance(L)
Open your main tube, resize 35% arrange on the right
