This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use Version 9).
Artwork courtesy of Ismael Rac and you can find him here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate Xeracx artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube of choice
Scrapkit: "Wings of Love" by "Missy Lynn Scraps" and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Mask of choosing.
Font(s): The NautiGal
Here we go!
Open a new image, 600x600 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open frame1 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize to your liking, rotate depending on what tube you are using.
Open paper1 - Click inside of frame1 with your magic wand, expand selection by 5, add new layer, floodfill, move layer underneath frame.
Add a new layer, floodfill with paper1, apply mask of choice, merge group, move to bottom.
Open a variety of elements - copy, paste as a new layers, resize to your liking, and arrange. I started with the books and finished with the greenery.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Open tube of choice - copy, paste as a new layer, resize if necessary, duplicate, add gaussian blur of 3 to top layer, change blend mode to multiply, change opacity to 48.
Add a new vector layer for your name.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
