Fall In Love

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 Alehandra Vanheck (Champagne tube - a PFD Exclusive) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Fall In Love, a PTU kit by BLT Dezignz 

Font of choice, I am using Scriptina

Mask: Becky Mask 23 - 
her masks are no longer available for download
if you don't have it, just use another that you like

Plugins: Optional Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow for text

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 80%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2
add a new raster layer below the frame
open paper 5 make sure you are on the new layer, 
copy and paste into selection
leave selected, selections, invert

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 35%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

Now add your elements:
flower 1 resize 55% arrange on bottom left, duplicate & mirror
flower 5 resize 60% arrange between the two flower 1 layers
flower 1 resize 40% arrange on top of flower 5

foliage resize 75% rotate right 90 arrange on bottom right, under flowers, duplicate, mirror
duplicate each one one time, drag the one on the left over to the right, 
drag the one on the right to the left

branch resize 55% rotate right 45 arrange between flower and leaves on bottom right
duplicate & mirror

buckle arrange under roses on left, duplicate & mirror
duplicate the one on the right, drag under silvery flower in center to the right side of it, 
duplicate & mirror

heart 1 resize 20% arrange between the two red rose layers in center and on left
bird resize 28% arrange on bottom right

add paper 6 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group

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

I used #a2001a for the text and a gradient glow of 4 #ffadbb
