The Beginning

Feel free to use my tutorial in any way you would like. Although it is my ideas that will guide you, please feel free to do whatever you choose with it!

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed supplies:

Scrap Kit of choice or the one I am using. This kit is by Pimp'd Tag Scraps and can be purchased at Sophisti-Scraps in the full Saga Collection or as a separate kit.

Masks of Choice: the masks I used came from Chelle under downloads. Her site can be found here

I used Chelle's WSL233.

Plugins: EyeCandy4000, Gradient Glow

Image of choice. My image is by David Desbois. You can visit his deviantart site here. I have permission from him to use his artwork in my tutorials.

Open all supplies needed for this tutorial. Add the mask to your mask file or open them in PSP. I use these quite a bit.

Copy and paste pp8 as a new layer. Layers, Load/Save Mask, Load mask from Disk, choose Mask233 by WSL. Merge Group. Copy and paste pp12 as a new layer. On the mask layer click selections, select all, selections, float, selections, defloat, selections, invert. Now hit delete on the pp12 layer. Reduce the transparency of this layer to 18. Do not deselect.

Copy and paste your image of choice. After it is centered using your move and resize tools, hit delete on your keyboard. Move this layer under pp12, which will create an overlay effect. Selections, Select None.

Add your elements of choice. See tag for exact placement and resize as necessary. I added:

green-01 to the bottom most layer, moved toward the top and mirrored.
green-01 to the bottom, moved toward the bottom.
rr-bow-01 to the top and a white 3.0 medium gradient glow.
flower-03 to the top left of the mask frame.
flower-04 to the bottom right of the mask frame.
flower-02 to the top right of the mask frame.
flower-01 to the bottom left of the mask frame.
feather-heart to the middle bottom of the mask frame, and a light drop shadow. I used 2, 2, 58, 4.

Add any other elements of your choice.

Drop shadow your layers and merge them where you would like.

Add your copyright at this time for the scrapkit. I added a gradient glow to my copyright.

Add your text of choice, I used Pea Sue Print. You can google to find it. I added a medium 3.0 white glow to my font. I also added "The Beginning" to the top of the tag.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Please feel free to send me your results!
