Dream Of Dragons

Snaggable versions of this tag 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 Natacha Chohra (Naptime tube) which you need a license to use.  
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Fairy Dusk by Amy Marie's Kits 

Font of choice, I am using Mahrpedig Sans

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 120 copy and paste as a new layer, 
duplicate, drag up to the right, duplicate and mirror, 
get all 3 layers arranged how you like, then merge the 3 together
duplicate, flip, drag back down so it touches the original layer, merge these two together

add the following:
element 91arrange on the left edge of the grass, duplicate & mirror
element 15 mirror, arrange in between the two castle layers

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 60% arrange in the center of the grass

element 13 resize 55% arrange on the right side of your tube
element 106 resize 55% mirror, arrange on the right side of the tube
element 61 resize 55% mirror arrange on left side of tube
element 104 resize 35% arrange in front of the castle on the left
element 53 resize 45% arrange in front of tube

copy and paste paper 9 above the white background
apply your mask & merge group

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