Sandi's Garden

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 (Sandi tube) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Graphics of Fantasy called Crystal Magic Forrest
available at Graphics of Fantasy Store and Pics For Design 

Font of choice, I am using Rosewood

Mask: DVB80  by Vabys

Plugins: No outside plugins
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 frame 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 3 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 50%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

 Now add your elements:
 element 85 resize  55% arrange on bottom right
element 95 resize  75% twice arrange across the top, duplicate & mirror, merget together, duplicate & flip
element 30 resize  60% arrange above 95 on the right side, duplicate, mirror
element 14 resize  25% arrange just left of the chest
element 119 resize  45% arrange on the right, behind the chest
 element 15 resize  20% arrange in front of the chest
element 93 resize  45% arrange behind cat on the left, duplicate, mirror, arrange behind the chest

add paper 4 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group, resize 110%

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