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 Zlata M (Festive) which you need a license to use.
The tube I am using came from Scraps & The City, but she is no longer there, so I linked to
Pics for Design for that artist. The tube is not at PFD right now and I do not know if it will be available anywhere else. You can always substitute another tube for this tutorial.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Winter Rose a PTU kit by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Scriptina
Plugins: Xero Porcelain
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 2 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 10 copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
Open your tube, copy & paste the mirrored image as a new layer,
arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard & deselect
duplicate the tube, on the top on, adjust, blur, gaussian 3 change the blend mode to soft light
Apply Xero Porcelain using the default settings except change the blue to zero
Copy and paste the original tube (not mirrored) resize 75% and arrange it on the right side of frame
For the elements I used:
element 12 arrange behind tube on the right
element 15 resize 60% arrange on bottom center of frame
element 43 resize 50% arrange to the left of element 15
element 36 resize 59% arrange to the left & a little above the other rose
element 53 resize 50% arrange on left
element 47 resize 45% arrange on left
element 83 resize 30% arrange on left
Copy & paste paper 2 just above the white background & add your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
