Colours of Mine 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, preferably a sittin one - I used one of ©Misticheskaya's tubes.
You need to be a registered member of Pics For Design
to purchase her tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrapkit is called 'Colors Of Mine' from Butterfly Kisses Scraps
Mask #112 from DesignsByVabs
Font I used is called 'Beware' from Simply the Best Fonts

Open your tube & the mask. Minimise the mask
New white canvas 800x800 (we will resize at the end)

Copy & paste a paper from scrapkit as a new layer.
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings
Merge Group - resize 90% Bicubis-all layers unchecked.
Copy & paste FRame 3 from scrapkit as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
You can colourize the frame to suit your tube.
Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 45 left or right, doesn't matter.

Magic Wand, click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 5,
Copy & paste your paper as a new layer - SElections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None.
Move the paper down below the frame layer.

Make the frame layer active, click inside the frame once again with you Magic Wand.
Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - positioning the tube so it looks as though it is sitting
inside the frame - Selections-Invert, Eraser Tool, erase any of the tube protruding below the frame

When you have done that, Selections-None.
Copy & paste one of the Charm Bows from scrakit as a new layer. Position the Charm Bow up
on top corner of the frame. Move down under you tube layer.

Have top layer active. Copy & paste the 'Flowers'  from scrapkit as a new layer. Resize 65%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Move acros to sidecorner of the frame. Move under Tube layer.
Duplicate-Image-Mirror. Duplicare once more-Image-Flip, move down to bottom corner of the frame.
Then move that Duplicated flowers up above your Tube layer, duplicate once more-Image-Mirror-Merge Down.
Have them positioned similar to mine.

At this stage you can add any other of the elements from the scrapkit you like. I added the RibbonHeart-1
& placed it behind the flowers.
We have almost finished. 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 mergedimage should now have a
transparent background. Resize to your liking. I resized mine 76% Bicubic-all layters CHECKED.
Save as a *Png Image
