September Romance

Snaggable tag set for this tag is available in my Fotki album

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 Nocturne (Statice tube) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, September Romance by BLT Dezignz
I am using the tagger size kit, if you use the full size kit, you will need to resize your elements a bit differently  

Font of choice, I am using Geordie Girl

Mask: DVB Mask 80
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 frame 2 copy and paste as a new layer resize 85%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 60%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them
 Now add your elements:
branch 3 resize 45% arrange on bottom left, duplicate, mirror, 
duplicate again, rotate left 30, drag down so it's below the original, duplicate, mirror

wreath resize 35% arrange between 2 leaves on left, duplicate, mirror, 
arrange between the other two leaf layers

heart 1 resize 35% arrange on bottom center
branch 4 resize 45% arrange below wreath on left, duplicate, mirror arrange below other wreath

flower 5 resize 35% arrange behind heart on left, duplicate & mirror
flower 4 resize 35% arrange behind flower 5, duplicate & mirror
 flower 7 resize 30% arrange between branch and leaves, duplicate & mirror

 apply paper 5 above the white background
