October Girl

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

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Golden Girl, by Niqui's Designs

Font of choice, I am using Sweet Memories

Mask: Vix big mask 1

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 element 45 copy and paste as a new layer resize 65%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 12 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,
copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 70%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

 add your elements:
element 34 resize 45% arrange on bottom left
element 14 resize 30% arrange on bottom right on the right side of the bag
element 7 resize 30% mirror arrange to the left of the purse, in front of the bag
element 47 resize 45% mirror & arrange on bottom right
element 39 resize 30% arrange between purse and cat on bottom
element 36 resize 60% arrange behind cat
element 51 resize 25% arrange above & behind bag layers

element 42 resize 45% arrange between the two flowers, duplicate, rotate right 90, drag down
element 2 resize 45% rotate right 90 arrange behind flowers on left
