Crazy Love

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.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a revamped kit called Crazy Love by Rieneke, that matches the tube,
and it is available in Arthur's store.  You can get it here without the tube and here with the tube

Font of choice, I am using My Oh My

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 element 18 copy and paste as a new layer 
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2
make a new raster layer and make sure that layer is active
open paper 10 copy and paste into selection, leave selected, selections, invert
Open your close up tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in frame, click delete on your keyboard
change the blend mode to Luminance(L) drop the opacity to 70

Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 80%, pull over to the left

Now we'll place our elements

element 8 resize 110% arrange behind frame & paper & pull a little to the right
element 5 resize 75% arrange across bottom of frame
element 1 resize 35% rotate left 90 arrange on left side of banner, duplicate & mirror
element 4 resize 30% arrange behind flower on right, duplicate, mirror and arrage behind left flower
element 37 arrange on right, duplicate, mirror, & drag the duplicate slightly right
element 40 resize 45% arrange between banner & frame
element 29 arrange on the right, under the tube & rose, erase the parts that go past the tube on the left side
element 7 resize 65% arrange behind heart on right
element 32 resize 65% arrange behind feathers on right

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
