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 Di Halim, (Gothic Angel) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Dark Princess by Made by Justine
Font of choice, I am using Angelic War
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 Photo frame 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 5 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on the keyboard
copy & paste the tube, resize 55% click delete on the keyboard, deselect
hide the white background layer, merge visible, unhide white background
