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 (Natural Beauty) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching PTU kit, Natural Beauty by Creation by Sanie also
Font of choice, I am using A Little Pot
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 Frame 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 7 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Copy & paste your tube, resizer 80%, arrange in the frame,
erase the parts hanging over the frame where you don't want them.
For the elements I used:
element 1 resize 60% arrange in the middle on the bottom of the frame
flower 1 resize 60% rotate right 35 arrange to right of element 1, duplicate & mirror
sunflower 2 resize 40% arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 3 arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 11 resize 40% arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
leaf 4 resize 50% & flip arrange on right, duplicate & mirror
sparkle 3 arrange in between some of the flower & leaf layers, duplicate & mirror
Open paper 11 copy and paste just above the white background
apply your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
