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 (Pecas) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Love N Fairyland by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Ribbon In the Sky
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
Copy & paste your tube as a new layer in the canvas
Add the following elements:
element 12 arrange behind & to the right of the tube
element 11 resize 40% arrange on bottom right
element 9 resize 35% arrange on bottom right against the house on the little stones
element 41 arrange on the top of the house on right side
element 47 resize 40% arrange below element 41
element 79 resize 40% arrange on right
element 78 esize 40% arrange on top right
element 54 resize 40% & mirror arrange on left side of house
element 49 resize 40% arrange below element 54 layer on left
