Little Girl Dreams 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 PSPX1 (11) 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 misted head shot tube - I used one from ZindyZone Tubes
but any face/head tube will do.
Scrapkit called 'Stirling' from Heartfelt Perfections
Mask #34 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs
Font I used is called ' CafeNoir' from TTFonts
Plugin Filter - Xero-Porcelain

New white canvas 800x800

We will resize at the end.
*Scrapkit is full sized, so we will have some resizing to do with it*

Open the mask & minimise it
On your white canvas - go to Selections-Select All - new raster layer.
Copy & paste a paper from scrapkit into selection - Selections-None.
I used paper 8
New mask layer - from image with these settings

Merge Group - resize mask layer 85% SmartSize-all layers unchecked.

Copy & paste Ribbon Frame2 from scrapkit as a new layer - you won't see it, so we have
to resize - 20% SmartSize-all layers unchecked. Move the frame down a little. Magic Wand,
click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 12 - copy & paste another paper from scrap
kit as a new layer (I use paper 6 & resized it 60% SmartSize-all layers unchecked). Selections-Invert,
hit delete. Selections-None. Move the paper layer below the frame layer. Still on the paper layer, go
to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 8. Back to top layer - frame layer, Magic Wand - click once more inside
the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 2 - copy & paste your misted head tube as a new layer. You may
have to resize the tube if you used a different one to mine. Position the tube to the side of the frame like
mine, SElections-Invert - Eraser Tool, erase parts of the tube around bottom & top of the frame.
Selections-None when you have done this.
To give my tube a little more depthness I duplicated the tube & on the original layer I went to Adjust,
Blur-Gaussian Blur 8. Then I gave the top tube layer this drop shadow.

I also added that drop shadow to the frame.
Merge the top tube layer down to the blurred tube layer - Effects-Plugins-Xero-Porcelain - default setting.
Same with the frame .

Have top layer active. Copy & paste the Flower element from scrapkit as a new layer - resize 40% SmartSize-all layers

unchecked. Move the Flower across to sid of the frame & up near the top - Dulicate the flower, move the duplicated layer
down & out a little - duplicate once more & move this layer down (see mine for placement) Merge Down the 2 layers
of the Flower so there is one layer of the flowers - go to Effects-Edge Effects-Enhance. Add the drop shadow.

Copy & paste the WBow from scrapkit as a new layer - no need to resize the bow - move it up & across to top
corner of the frame & then move the bow layer below your tube layer. Effects-Edge Effects-Enhance. Drop Shadow.

Copy & paste the white Butterfly from scrapkit as a new layer - resize 60% SmartSize-all layers unchecked. Image-Mirror,
move down to bottom corner of the frame - Effects-Edge Effects-Enhance - add drop shadow.

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 image should now
have a transparent background
Resize to your liking. I resized mine 80% SmartSize-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png Image.
