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, (Sexy Tribe Girl) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Fall Down Home by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Intrique Script
Plugins: No outside plugins
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 64 copy and paste as a new layer drag down near the bottom, duplicate & mirror merge together
open 65 copy and paste as a new layer, duplicate 3 or 4 times arrange around in front of 64
element 63 resize 55% arrange on right
element 61 resize 55% arrange behind rocks
element 89 arrange in the little valley in the grass
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 45% arrange on the right
