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 Alicia Mujica which you need a license to use.
this tube is a CDO exclusive which you can find here
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Cherry Mint by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Caneletter Script
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
Plugins: No outside pluginsD
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 1000 x 1000 pixels with a white background
Add the following checking my tag for exact placement
element 48 resize 80% arrange on the right
element 36 resize 80% arrange to the left of 48
element 6 arrange on right
element 26 arrange behind & between buildings
element 27 resize 75% arrange to the left of 26
Add your tube, arrange on the right side of the candy store
element 20 resize 50% arrange over pink building on left
element 47 resize 50% arrange on the left side of candy store
element 44 resize 50% arrange on the far left
element 46 resize 55% arrange on right
