Mellow Yellow 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 close-up tube - I used one of ©Keith Garvey tubes.
You need to be a registered member of PSP Tubes Emporium (PTE)
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Elements from scrapkit 'Yeh, Spring Is Coming' from Bastelgalaxy Scraps
Template #90 from ScrapsRebellion
Font I used is called 'GE Twill Script Normal' from Font Place
Plugin Filters:
Xero-Frittillary & Porcelain
Eyecandy 4000-GradientGlow for your name

**You can colourize the elements to suit your tube**

Open up your tube. Open up the template #90 - click Shft D to copy it. Close off original template.
Delete top layer (TOU). Make bottom layer active, uncross the eyes. Go to
Image-Canvas Size with these settings. Make sure you click the centre diamond.

Flood Fill with white.
Make Raster 6 layer active on the template - Select All-Float-Defloat, new raster layer, Flood Fill
with a colour from your tube. Keep selected-Effects-Plugins-Xero-Fritillary with these settings

Selections-None. Add this drop shadow

Make Raster 7 on template active, do the same as above, but flood fill with a lighter colour
from your tube. Add the plugin effect.

Make Copy of Raster 9 layer active - Merge Down to Raster 9. Select All-Float-Defloat - new
Raster layer, Flood fill with your darker colour. Add Xero plugin effect. Add drop shadow as before.

Make Copy of Raster 8 active, Merge Down to Raster 8. You can flood fill this layer or leave it as
the black.

Delete Raster 1 layer (nothing on it).
Make Raster 3 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat, copy & paste a paper from scrapkit as a new layer.
Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-Invert again - Modify-Select Selection Borders with these settings

New Raster layer, Flood Fill with your dark colour - add the Xero plugin effect as before. Selections-None.
Add drop shadow. When you have done that Merge Down to the paper layer.

Make Raster 5 layer active - Merge Down to Raster 4 layer. Select All-Float-DEfloat, new Raster layer,
Flood Fill with dark colour. Selections-None. Merge Down.
At this stage you can either keep the WordArt on the template or you can add your own.
I deleted the WordArt & added 'Mellow Yellow' to mine. Merge Down. Now position the plate down to just
under the horizontal line below the big circle
Copy & paste your close-up tube as a new layer, positioning it over the big circle, them ove it down under
the plate layer. Effects-Plugins-Xero-Porcelain to your tube & then add drop shadow.

Copy & paste Doodle-03 from scrapkit as a new layer. Resize 120% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Colourize it to suit your tube. Image-Mirror - position over to the top left of the template. Duplicate-Image-Mirror.
Position the duplicate Doodle down to just above the Plate. Merge Down. Now move the Merge Doodles down
under your tube layer.

Make top layer active on the template - copy & paste Ribbon-01 from scrapkit as a new layer. Resize 120%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen. Add drop shadow. Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 5 left. Position down
so it sits over the horizontal line above the plate layer (see mine).

Copy & paste Heart-01 from scrapkit as a new layer - position over to the left top verticle line of template.
Add drop shadow.
Copy & paste one of the Bows from scrapkit as a new layer - position over the Heart-01 - Merge Down. Add drop
shadow.
You have now completed the tag. All you need to do now, is add your name & correct copyright.
When you have done that, cross out the eyes on 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 layersCHECKED. Save as a *Png image
