Dragonfly Picnic

Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Ian Daniels (ID-AA1 Tube)which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Spring Browny by Amy Marie's Kits 

Font of choice, I am using Vtks Rash

Mask of your choice

Plugins: no outside plugins

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

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 85%

Now we'll build our tag by adding the elements:
element24 arrange under tube, duplicate 4 times, arrange around so you have a good sized patch of grass, then hide the tube and white background, merge visible, unhide the hidden layers

element 47 arrange in front of tube on left
element 7 resize 75% arrange in front of tube on bottom left
element 1 arrange behind tree stump, duplicate, drag down to the left

element 27 arrange in front of tube on left, duplicate, drag the duplicate below the tube
take your eraser tool and erase just what is over the face & body of your tube but leave where the tree is covering her legs

element 45 mirror horizontal arrange behind tube on right
element 20 resize 55%  flip vertically duplicate 2 times arrange across top of wall

copy and paste paper 18 as a new layer above the white background
apply your mask, merge group

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