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 The Hunter (Snow Queen) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Bibi's Collection, Snow Queen, which is a match to the tube
Font of choice, I am using Dreamer
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
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 1000 x 800 pixels with a white background
Add the following, you may have to check my tag for a good idea of placement
element 62 resize 45% arrange below the frame
element 36 resize 45% arrange to the right of and behind 62 so it runs along the side of the frame
element 32 arrange between 36 & 62
element 22 resize 35% arrange at the bottom, just above the tower element layer
element 63 resize 35% arrange on left
element 15 arrange on right, duplicate mirror and drag back to the right
element 64 resize 35% arrange along the bottom in the center
element 1 resize 45% arrange between logs on bottom left
element 66 resize 45% arrange on bottom right
element 68 resize 45% arrange by tube
element 53 resize 20% arrange on pine tree in center
