This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use Version 9).
Artwork copyright to Cris Ortega.
Tube of choice
Scrapkit: "Timeless" by "Missy Lynn Scraps" and can be purchased here.
Mask(s): Dreaming2 by Sabre, you can find it here.
Font(s): AL Afternon Delight
Here we go!
Open a new image, 700x700 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open paper3 - Copy, paste as a new layer, apply Sabre mask dreaming2, merge down.
Open frame3 - Copy, paste as a new layer, rotate 90 degrees right.
Open paper6 & 16 - Click inside of frame3 with your magic wand, add new layer, floodfill with paper 6, move layer underneath frame, while still selected, add a new layer, floodfill with paper16 and change opacity to 44.
Open tube of choice - Copy, paste as a new layer, effects-artistic effects-aged newspaper, use a setting of 20.
Now that you know the size of your frame, use the raster deform tool to move the top and bottom of the mask in and drag the sides out a bit so the mask is showing equally underneath the frame.
Open a few flowers, the butterfly, & other accessories - copy, paste as new layers, resizing each to your liking.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your name. Try to choose a font that is a handwritten style.
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!!
