Easter Bunny

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 (Easter Surprise) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Graphics of Fantasy, which you can buy at

Font of choice, I am using Nella Sue

Mask of your choice, the one I used is no longer available online

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

open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 40%

add the following elements

element 44 arrange below the tube layer
element 50 arrange below the stones layer
element 36 resize  20% arrange to the left of and below the tube layer
element 98 resize  20% arrange in front of element 36, behind the tube layer
element 64 resize  20% arrange in front of the tube's foot on the right
frame 4 resize  75% arrange between the stones & grass layer
element 57 resize  65% arrange on left side of frame
element 101 resize  45% arrange on left, just below stones layer, duplicate & mirror
element 19 resize  40% arrange between the frame and grass layer on the left
element 46 resize  30%  and mirror, arrange on left, below stones layer
element 20 resize  30% arrange in one of the cracks in the stone on the right
element 1 resize  15% arrange in front of element 20 on the stones
element 21 resize  15% arrange by the flower in the stones
element 6 resize  15% arrange behind the leaves on the stones
element 109 resize  15% arrange on lantern on the left
element 33 resize  35% arrange on right side of frame, duplicate & mirror

Add paper 1 just above the white background layer
