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 Ismael Rac (2013 Classy Girl & 2013 Sexy Lingerie) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Amy Marie called Lady In Red
Font of choice, I am using Scriptina
Plugins: Xero Porcelain
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 800 x 800 pixels with a white background
open 23 copy and paste as a new layer resize 90%
click inside with your magic wand set on add, click into the corner where it doesn't go all the way up to the edge of the frame, selections, modify, expand 3, selections, invert
open paper 11 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Copy and paste your close up tube, arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard, deselect
Duplicate the tube, on the top layer adjust blur, gaussian 3, change the blend mode to soft light
On the original, change the hue and saturation to 0
Apply Xero Porcelain with the default settings except change the blue to zero
Add your main tube, resize 45% mirror and arrange on the left side of the frame
Add the following elements:
element 83 resize 75% duplicate & mirror, arrange on bottom left & right
