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 (2013 Dress Attitude) which you need a license to use. This tube has not yet been released, but will be in the store within a day or two of this tutorial being posted
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching scrap kit by Rieneke Designs, Dress Attitude
which will be released in Ismael's store when the tube is released
Font of choice, I am using Carrington
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 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 3 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard
Duplicate the tube, on the duplicate, adjust blur, gaussian 3 change the blend mode to Soft Light
on the bottom layer change the blend mode to Luminance(L)
Copy and paste your tube again, mirror and resize by 45% arrange on the right side of the frame
now we'll add our elements
element 34 arrange across top, duplicate, mirror & flip
