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 which you need a license to use.
This tube, BB Sexy Raincoat is a preview of a coming soon tube, and is not yet in the store but will
be released into the store within a day or two of this tutorial being publishes.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching scrap kit called Sexy Raincoat, by Sandy's Design, which will
also be available in Ismael Rac's store as soon as the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Running For a Cause
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, making sure you get all the little areas inside the bow part, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 3 copy and paste as a new layer
Leave selected, open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard. If you used the same tube as me, copy merged, then paste as a new image, mirror it then copy and paste into the frame
Copy and paste your main tube as a new layer, if you use the same one as me, resize 45% and arrange on the left side
Now for the elements:
autumn fruit basket 2 resize 60% arrange on the bottom left
autumn candles 1 resize 60% arrange on the bottom right
Pumpkin candle 1 resize 60% arrange in the middle of the other 2 elements
Fox arrange on the right
beads 1 arrange on the right, duplicate and move to the left, merge together
duplicate, mirror & flip, then erase any odd beads that don't look positioned right
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
