Latticed Heart Tutorial


Click on image to see larger version

At the time I created this tutorial, all tubes, scrapkits, etc were
in working links. Sorry if the links no longer work
With scrapkits, if the link or site is missing, choose a similar scrapkit

I created this tut in PSPX4 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP. You need to have a good understanding of
your PSP program to do this tutorial

You will need:
A close up tube - I used a tube from Angela Newman
You need to be a registered member of PTE
to purchase her tubes, but any close up tube will do.
My LatticedHeart Template
Font I used is called 'Opilio' from Dafont.com
Plugin Filters:
Xero-Fritillary


Open up my LattiedHeart template - click SHIFT D to copy it. Close off original template.
Delete my copyright layer. Flood Fill background layer black or any dark colour from your tube
Colour Change the Mask layer to your liking - I used the red from my tube.
Make the Lines layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat - new raster layer, Flood Fill with a gradient to suit your tube.
Selections-None. Delete the original Lines layer. Effects-Plugins-Xero-Fritillary with these settings

Effects-Edge Effects-Enhance. Give this drop shadow

Blend Mode - Luminance(L)
Copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer - move the tube across to the left side & under the lines layer.
Blend Mode - Luminance(L)

Make the Heart layer active - Magic Wand, click inside the heart - new raster layer, Flood Fill with your gradient.
Selections-None - move this layer below the heart layer - add the Xero Fritillary effect once more

Back on the heart layer, make it active - Select All-Float-Defloat - new raster layer, Flood Fill with gradient.
Selections-None. Effects-3D Effects-Inner Bevel with these settings

Copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer - resize down - I resized mine 50% SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Move your tube across to the right side just so you can see the side of the heart (see mine for placement)

Make frame layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat - new raster layer, Flood Fill with your gradient. Selections-None.
Give it the Inner Bevel effect as before.
Add your name & correct copyright - Merge Visible - save as a *Png image
