Irish Dream Tutorial

You will need:

Leprechaun Font supplied *here
'IrishDream' scrapkit from Tony'a Temptations
Tube of choice - I used one from ©CraftKid.
You can find her at Devianart
Plugin Filters:
DBS Flux-Bright Noise
Tramages-Toe The Line

New white canvas 700x700

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer
Give the tube this Drop Shadow (we will be using this drop
shadow all the way)

Copy & paste Horseshoe-1 from scrapkit
Drop Shadow
Move the Horseshoe below tube layer
Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked

Copy & paste Frame-2 as a new layer. Resize 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked
Move the Frame down under Horseshoe. Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat
Make Horseshoe layer active - Eraser Tool, erase the section of Horseshoe that overlaps
the Shamrock in the frame

Selections-Select None.

Make top layer active - copy & paste one of the Signs - resize 65% Bicubic-all layers unchecked
Drop Shadow

Copy & paste one of the Pipes - resize 30% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Place the Pipe
on or near tubes mouth. Drop Shadow

Copy & paste one of the Shoes as a new layer. Resize 30% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Place the shoe to the left & bottom of the sign. Drop Shadow - duplicate-Image-Mirror.

Now, what I did for the Blurred background was copy & pasted Shamrock-3 as a new layer.
Moved it down to to just above the white background - Duplicated it-Image-Flip-Merge Down.
Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 35%. Then I used Tramages Filter - Toe the Line - default setting.

Once you have everything in place for your tag, cross out the eyes on background layer (white)
Merge Visible all other layers. At this stage I resized my tag by 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.

Add your name & correct copyright - Merge Down - Magic Wand, click on Shamrocks & shoes like this

Duplicate 3 times to give you 4 layers.

Cross out eyes on top 3 layers, make layer one active.
Effects-Plugins-DBS Flux-Bright Noise with these settings

Make next layer active, cross out the eyes on previous layer & un-cross the eyes on next layer.
Filter effect - click 2 times on MIX - procede to do this for other 2 layers, remembering to cross out
& un-cross the eyes as you go, clicking MIX for each layer.
When finished - Selections-Select None.
At this point you may want to resize again. I resized mine 80% Bicubic-all layers checked


Make bottom tag layer active-uncross the eyes, making sure all other eyes are crossed out.
Copy Merged - Animation Shop - Paste as a new animation. Back to your PSP, next layer, do the same,
AS Paste After Currant Frame - continue doing this till you have your 4 frames in AS.

Edit-Select All - save
