Dream Girl Tutorial





You will need:

Tube - I used one of Keth Garvey's ladies. You need to be
a registered member of MPT to purchase his tubes, but any
tube will do.
Wordart Template 14 from Missy at DivineIntentionz
HERE

Scroll down the page & you will see Wordart Templates on the
left side with the link 1-25
Template 14 from Missy At DivineIntentionz - scroll down to about mid way to
find it.
HERE
Scrap kit called ' Donatella' from FantasyDreams Designz
HERE
Font I used is called Basketville Old Face that came with my PSPX1.
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy 4000-Gradient Glow (optional)
Flaming Pear-SBP-M_cocnutice (optional)

There is a bit work with this tutorial & a few screen shots, so please
bear with me. Think you will need a cuppa beside you as you work through the tut.

Open up the Template 14 - click Shift D to copy it. Delete the original Template.
Make bottom layer (white) active - go to Image-Canvas Size with these settings



Flood Fill with white. Go to the top layer of the template & delete Missy's TOU.
Make the Circle layer active on the template - Select All-Float-Defloat - copy &
paste a Paper from the scrap kit as a new layer. I resized the paper 65% Bicubic-all
layers unchecked. Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Delete the original
Circle layer. Give this drop shadow



Make Thin Rectangle layer active on the template. Select All-Float-Defloat - copy &
paste another Paper from scrap kit as a new layer. I resized again the same as before.
Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Delete original Tin Rectangle layer.
Give drop shadow as before.

Make Rounded Edge Rectangle active - Select All-Float-Defloat - copy & paste a Paper
from scrap kit as a new layer. Once again I resized. Seletions-Invert, hit delete.
Delete original Rounded Edge Rectangle. Give drop shadow, then drop shadow again but change
the V to -1 & H -3



Copy & paste Deco 28 From scrap kit as a new layer.
Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked - Mirror - move over to the left side of the template.
Adjust-Sharpen.

Copy & paste Bow 6 from scrap kit as a new layer - resize 60% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Adjust-Sharpen. Move the bow over to Deco 28 (see mine for example)

Copy & paste Deco 4 from scrap kit as a new layer - move to the right of the template - Adjust-
Sharpen.

Copy & paste Deco 2 from scrap kit as a new layer - resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Go to
Image-Free Rotate - Rotate 25 right. Move Deco 2 over to right side of template over Deco 4.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer, placing the tube where it looks nice. Give drop shadow



I just darkened the colour from the initial drop shadow - that choice is yours.

Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) Merge Visible all other layers. Open the eyes up on bottom
layer. Resize your merged image 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Duplicate your Merged Image.
On the bottom Merged Image go to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 25. Go to Effects-Texture Effects-Texture,
with these settings I used the Bricks Effect.



Make top layer active - Merge Down. OPen up the Wordart Template 'DreamGirl' copy wordart emplate,
paste as a new layer on your canvas. Select All-Float-Defloat- copy & paste a Paper from scrap kit
as a new layer - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Delete the original wordart layer.(I resized the Paper
as before)

*This is where I used Eyecandy 4000 Plugin Filter. If you don't have it, you can use a nice
drop shadow*

Still on the Wordart layer, go to Effects-Plugin Filters-Eyecandy 4000-GradientGlow with these settings



Then I used the 1st drop shadow on the wordart. Back to Wordart tempalet, copy Words & paste on your canvas
as a new layer - move the words over the Wordart so the 'girl' is on the left (see mine for example)
Select All-Float-Defloat - new raster layer - Paint Brush Tool, colour white, with these settings



paint over the words. Give the same Eyecandy 4000 GradientGlow as before but reduce the size to 5.
Give drop shadow as before. Merge Down, place the word art where it will look nice. I resized the wordart
80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked, but that choise is yours.

Add your name & correct copyright. Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) Merge Visible all other layers.
Open eyes - Crop Tool - crop excess white background. Copy & paste as a New Image on your workspace.
Your merged image now should have a transparent background. I resize my merged image 87% Bicubic-
all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png
