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, (Roller Skull Candy) which you need a license to use. This tube is coming soon to Arthur's store and will be in the store within a day or two of this tut being posted.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching PTU kit by Desirena Designs, which will also be available in Arthur's store when the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Crazy Rascals
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 element 27 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 8 copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard
Open your medium sized tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75% arrange in front of the frame, erase the bits of legs that are below the frame
