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 (Cecile) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Waiting for Cecile by Bibi's Collection which was made to match the tube.
Font of choice, I am using Leatherwork
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
element 25 resize 65%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 2 copy and paste as a new layer resize 50%
click delete on your keyboard and deselect
copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize 60%, arrange so she is sitting on the frame
Add the following:
element 29 resize 65% arrange on the left
element 57 resize 65% arrange on top right, duplicate & mirror
element 59 resize 65% arrange on right, below element 57
element 60 resize 65% arrange across top towards the right
element 17 resize 65% arrange below frame on the bottom
element 32 resize 40% arrange on bottom right
element 34 resize 60% arrange on bottom right
element 15 resize 60% arrange on top left, duplicate & mirror,
erase the bits that stick out over the tube's head & most of what sticks up on the top of the right side one
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
For the text, open paper 3, set it as your background
set the foreground at #0d2128 stroke width at 1 and write out the name or text you want on your tag
