Let It Rain

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 (Hot Attitude) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Let It Rain by Creative Crazy Scraps

Font of choice, I am using Masterics

Mask: of your choice

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 CCSE5 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 110%
Selections, select all, float, defloat, invert
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 70% arrange over the window frame
take your eraser tool and erase what hangs out past the bottom of the window frame

Copy and paste paper 3 above the white background, add your mask
Now add whatever elements you like, I used the following (see tag for exact placement)
 element 7 arrange over bottom of frame
element 3 resize  65% arrange on upper left, duplicate & mirror
element 25 resize  30% arrange on bottom right
element 28 resize  30% arrange on bottom right
element 4 resize  30% arrange on bottom right, paste again, resize 45% arrange on bottom left corner
element 40 resize  55% rotate right 70 arrange on right side
element 39 resize  55% arrange on the top left, behind the tube
element 8 resize  45% arrange on left, behind the flower
element 20 resize  25% arrange on top of toadstood
element 14 arrange just on top of the tube layer, erase the bits that hang out of the bottom and 
show below the other elements
element 31 resize  65% arrange across bottom
element 27 arrange above the mask layer

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