Santa's Helper

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 Isamel Rac (Festive Girl) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Santa's Helpers by Amy Marie

Font of choice, I am using Magnolia

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

Add the following:
element 38 arrange in center
copy & paste your tube, resize 45% arrange in front of tree
element 77 arrange behind & to the right of the tree layer
element 20 arrange above & behind post box layer & tree layer
element 12 resize 65% arrange on right
element 10 resize 65% arrange on left
element 71 arrange behind tree on left

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
