Hocus Pocus

This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use
Version 9).

Image courtesy of Sheila Craig, it is a free to use tube and she can be found here.

Supplies Needed:

Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Hocus Pocus" by Grunge and Glitter and can be found here.
Mask: Weescotslass 218 & 222, that you can find here.
Plug Ins: Alien Skin Xenofex 2 -> Little Fluffy Clouds (not a necessity)
Font(s): Angelic War

Here we go!

Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.

Open frame 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking.

Select inside of frame with magic wand, expand by 5, add new layer, floodfill with paper 8, Effects ->Little Fluffy Clouds (100,30,50,Puffy,Perspective checked,default settings on Camera & Sky, except uncheck sky background,move underneath frame layer.

Copy and paste paper 6, move down to bottom, apply mask WSL222,lower opacity to 54.

Copy and paste paper 2, move down to right above last paper, apply mask WSL222.

Open all the goodies that you want to add, copy and paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating as you go. Both the lightning and the ghost I lowered the opacity down.

Open your tube or image of choice - Copy and paste, arrange and resize 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,convert to raster layer, I floodfilled with one of the orange papers. To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy Gradient Glow or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with a colour of your choosing.

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!!
