This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use
Artwork by Anna Marine and she is a pay to use artist, you can currently find her here at Creative Design Outlet. Please make sure that you have the appropriate CILM or Creative Design Outlet artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Living Dead Girl" by Grunge and Glitter and can be found here.
Mask(s): Weescotslass 128, and you can find that here.
Font(s): A&S Wizard
Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open frame 4, wire, and paper 2 - copy and paste frame as a new layer, resize. Use magic wand and select inside of frame, copy and paste paper 2 as a new layer, copy and paste wire as a new layer. Move all layers underneath frame.
Copy and paste paper 5, apply mask, move underneath all layers.
Open your tube or image of choice - copy and paste, arrange and resize to your liking, duplicate, change blend mode of top layer to multiply, lower opacity to 72, add gaussian blur of 5. Only dropshadow bottom layer.
Open your choice of extra goodies - copy and paste as new layers, resizing as you go. Don't forget the gargoyle!!
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, floodfill with paper 5, convert to raster layer. 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 black, drop shadow with white.
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!!
