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 (Happy New Year) which you need a licence to use
Scrap kit of choice, I am using a PTU kit by Alicia Mujica (My Best Wishes)
Font of choice, I am using Segoe Script
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
Copy and paste Reloj, resize 60%
Copy and paste your tube, resize 50% arrange to the left of the clock
Copy and paste Estrellas deco, resize 50% arrange behind clock layer
Copy and paste 2 of the balloons, resize one 30% and the other 25% arrange on right
Copy and paste brindis, resize 35% arrange by tube
Copy and paste one of the banners, resize 45% arrange across bottom of clock
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
