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 (Maleficia) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Maleficent 1 by Bibi's Creations
Font of choice, I am using Darks Skyrim Font
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 1000 x 850 pixels with a white background
Add the following, you can check my tag for reference:
element 155 resize 70% arrange slightly to the right of the center
duplicate & mirror
element 5 resize 75% arrange to the left of 155
element 28 resize 45% arrange to the left of the brick wall
element 128 resize 75% arrange behind the other stump and brick wall
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 35%
arrange to the right of and below the brick wall layer
element 158 resize 75% mirror & arrange on the upper right
element 58 resize 75% arrange across the bottom
element 105 resize 45% arrange in front of stumps & wall on the left
element 38 resize 35% mirror arrange so it looks like it's coming from her hand
crop and resize
