Sing Me A Lullaby Tutorial

Click on image to see larger version

I created this tut in PSPX4 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP.  Not much to in
this tutorial but your imagination

You will need:
A tube plus a close up tube - I used one of Keith Garvey tubes.
You need to be a registered member of TheArtOfGarvGraphix
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrapkit from Scrap- Mystic/Gothic from FantasyMoments
(you can colourize the elements to suit your tag)
Mask #126 from Gems Taggin Scraps
Font I used is called 'Lovers Quarrel'
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy 4000-GradientGlow
Xero-Porcelain (I used this on all elements & tubes-default setting)
MuRas Meister-Copies

Open up your tubes & mask. Minimise the mask.
New white canvas 750x750

Copy & paste a paper from scrapkit as a new layer. You can colourize it to suit your tube.

all layers unchecked. Image-Free Rotate-Rotate right 90. Move down to bottom of the round frame.

Now, we will go back to our round frame layer, make it active - Magic Wand, click inside it. Copy & paste
your close up tube as a new layer - position the tube nicely inside the round frame. Selections-Invert,
hit delete. Selections-None. Move the tube layer below the round frame layer
Reduce the opacity of the close up tube to about 75% or to your liking.

Make top layer active - copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Position the tube to your liking.
Add your name & correct copyright. When you have done that, cross out the eyes on the bottom layer
(white) Merge Visible all other layers. Click COPY & paste as a New Image on your workspace. Your
merged image should now have a transparent background. Resize to your liking. I resized mine 75%
Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png image
