Artwork by Keith Garvey and he is a pay to use artist, you can currently find him here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate My PSP Tubes or PSP Tubes Emporium artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Burst of Spring" by Created by Jill Scraps, a list of stores that sell her product are on her blog here.
Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Copy and paste frame 5, resize as necessary, using magic wand, select inside of frame, expand by 5, flood fill with paper 01, add a new layer, floodfill with paper 11, move both layers underneath frame. Lower opacity of the top layer.
Copy and paste doodle 1, resize, move underneath frame layer, duplicate, move on top of frame layer.
Copy and paste any other elements that you would like to use, resizing and rotating as you go.
Copy and paste the tube of your choice, duplicate, change blend mode to overlay, lower opacity to 75, apply gaussian blur of 3.
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 text - (I floodfilled mine with black) To make it stand out, duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, expand by 2, flood fill 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!!
