Firecracker Goldie

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 Derzi at Beehive Studio, (Goldie USA) 
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, July Celebration by Tiny Turtle Designs.
This kit was made to match several tubes of Ninaste and Derzi at Beehive Studios, and it's great for all your 4th of July tags.

Fourth Of July Template 1 by Melissaz Creationz

Font of choice, I am using Animated

Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
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 your template, shift D to duplicate and close the original
Delete the following layers: Raster 3, Raster 12

I resized the canvas by 800 x 800 pixels to make a little working room.

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette.
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer,
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

Some layers you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

Fill the following layers with papers or colors (I listed them in order from the bottom up)
Raster 2 use paper 78
Copy of Raster 2  use paper 78
(Dark Grey Rectangles) Merged use paper 12

(Light grey rectangles) Merged use paper 16, add noise using the following settings:
add/remove noise, add noise, random, monochrome, 50

(Stars) Merged use paper 10 add a gradient glow, width 3 in white
Raster 5 use paper 34
Raster 11 use paper leave as is
Raster 7 use paper 28
Raster 8 use paper 28
Raster 9 use paper 28
Raster 4 use paper 16 add the same noise settings to this layer

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 55% arrange in the center of the template
 Add the following elements:
element 32 resize 20% arrange on top right

element 24 resize  25% arrange by the tube's feet, arrange below the tube layer, duplicate
drag the duplicate above the tube layer, and erase the parts that go over the tube's feet
This way it looks like it's behind her legs, but in front of her seat.

element 28 resize  25% arrange to the right of the purse

(Light grecrop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
