Feeling Lost 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 close up tube - I used one of Verymany's lovely tubes
You need to be a registered member of PicsForDesign
to purchase his tubes, but any standing tube will do.
Scrapkit called 'Steampunked' from Designs by Vabs
Mask #3 from Melissaz Creationz
Font I used is called 'Pea Aimee' from Fonts For Peas
Plugin Filter:
Eyecandy4000-GradientGlow for your name

New white canvas 750x750

Select All on the canvas - new raster layer - copy & paste a paper from scrapkit
into selection - I used paper 2. Selections-None.
Open up mask#3 & minimise it - make your canvas active, new mask layer-from image with these settings

Merge group - resize 93%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Copy & paste Element 2 (clock) from scrapkit as a new layer-resize90%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Duplicate the clock & on the original layer, go to Adjust-Blur-GaussianBlur 15. Make top clock layer active
& give it this drop shadow

Copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer - you may have to resize the tube so it sits within the clock nicely.
Do the same with your tube as with clock. This gives a nice soft effect.

Copy & paste one of the flower elements (I used flowers 2 & 4) as a new layer. Resize 80%SmartSize-all layers
unchecked. Position to the side of the clock - same with another flower from scrapkit-resize the same.
Duplicate both flowers-resizing the the 80% again & arrange like mine

When you have done this, make top flower layer active - Merge Down all 4 flowers. Duplicate the merged flowers,
Image-Mirror - make top merged flower layer active - Merge Down once more. Duplicate, make bottom merged flowers
layer active - blur as we did before.

Copy & paste one of the Bows from scrapkit as a new layer - position the bow between the merged flowers,
covering the bottom of your tube. I resized the bow 80%SmartSize-all layers unchecked, but that is up to you.
Duplicate & blur the bottom bow layer - add drop shadow to top bow layer.

Copy & paste one of the Key elements from scrapkit as a new layer-resize 80%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Effects-Edge Enhance-Enhance - add drop shadow & position over over one of the merged flowers.
Add your name & correct copyright. Once 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 new image
should now have a transparent backgrouns. Resize to your liking. I resized mine 80%SmartSize-all layers CHECKED.
Save as a *Png image
