This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use
Artwork by Grant Turner and he is a pay to use artist, you can find him here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate My PSP Tubes artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Madame Midnight" by Grunge and Glitter and can be found here.
Mask(s): Weescotslass 128, and you can find that here.
Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open frame 1 and papers 1, 2, and 6 - copy and paste frame as a new layer, resize. Use magic wand and select inside of frame, add new layer, floodfill with paper 1, repeat with papers 2 and 6. Change papers 2 and 6 blend mode to overlay, move underneath frame in the order that you added them.
Copy and paste paper 18, apply mask, move underneath all layers, resize, duplicate, select all, floodfill top layer with paper 17.
Open your tube or image of choice - copy and paste, arrange and resize to your liking, duplicate, change top layer blend mode to 70, lower opacity down to 70, add gaussian blur 5. Dropshadow only bottom layer
Open your choice of extra goodies - copy and paste as new layers, resizing as you go.
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, background with #800000 foreground null, 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!!
