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.
Scrap Kit of choice or the one I am using. This kit is by Pimp'd Designz and can be purchased at Sophisti-Scraps called Twi-Girl Combo Pack by Cora's Creations.
The Quick tag I used is also by Cora and the direct link is here.
Masks of Choice: the masks I used came from Chelle under downloads. Her site can be found here.
I used WSL_297.
Image of choice. My images are by Irena Shpak. You can visit MyPSPTubes here to purchase them.
Plugins: If so desired I used EyeCandy4000, Gradient Glow which is no longer available but you can substitute EyeCandy 6.
Open all supplies needed for this tutorial. Add the mask to your mask file or open them in PSP.
Open cc-quick-tag-02, Shift+D to duplicate the frame which will be the working layer. Image, Canvas Size, change to 600x600, center the image. Starting at the bottom add a new layer and flood fill with white. Add cc-pp-10 and move to the right, duplicate and mirror. Apply WSL_297 to the paper layer. Merge group.
Add cc-pp-09 and stretch it a bit to fit inside all of the frame layer and then using your selection tool, make a box shape around your frame layers. Layers, invert and hit delete on your keyboard.
Add tube/image to the right 2 frames. See below for misting.
Misting an image is very easy. Using your magic wand, freehand selection, use these options:
Click on the image and choose Promote Background Layer. Now, start anywhere in the image you want to begin. What you are going to do is left click to place the pointer and then move the line to the next point and click again to make a rough cutout of the portion of the image you would like to mist. When you are done, right click and the selection will be made. Then, hit delete on your keyboard once or twice to feather the image around it.
Duplicate the step above for the other image on the right side of the frame. Merge down with the other misted tubes, then duplicate.
Add your elements of choice. See tag for exact placement and resize as necessary. I added:
cc-wa-02 move to bottom right. Using your selection tool, select the small words. Add a fat 3.0 white gradient glow.
cc-heart-02 under the word art and slightly rotated.
cc-feather over the words dazzle and the ribbon.
cc-button-02 top right of the frame.
cc-greens-03 under the frame in the first one to the left.
cc-flower-03 to the left of the chess piece.
cc-heart-01 over the moon layer.
cc-sparkle over the entire tag.
Add any other elements of your choice. Drop shadow your layers and merge them where you would like.
Add your copyright at this time.
Add your text of choice. I used A&S Snapper Script Light a pay font. Add a 3.0 fat white gradient glow. I also added a drop shadow to my text.
