Fairy Tales 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.

This tag is made in two (2) parts, so bare with me.

You will need:
2 tubes  - I used tubes of ©Alex Prihadka
You can get his tubes from PicsForDesign (PFD)
But any tubes will do.
Scrapkit is called "Lust" Bel Vidotti Scraps
Mask #1 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs
Font I used is called 'Mordred' from
Plugin Filters:
AAA Frames-Foto Frame
Eyecandy4000-GradientGlow for your name & copyright

Open up the mask #1 & minimise it. Also open up the tubes you will be
using & set it aside.

New transparent canvas 650x250

Select All - new raster layer - copy paper from scrapkit & paste into selection
Selection-None. Effects-Edge Effects-Enhance

Copy & paste the tube as a new layer - resize & move to right side of canvas.
Duplicate - Image-Mirror.
Make the bottom tube layer active - new raster layer - Select All - copy the paper & paste into selection.
Selections-None - Blend Mode - Screen.
Give each tube this drop shadow

Lower the Opacity of the top tube to about 80.
Cross out eyes on top tube - Merge Visible all other layers.
Effects-Plugins-AAAFrames-Foto Frame with these settings

When you have done that - uncross the eyes on top tube layer & then Merge Visible.

New white canvas 700x700

Select All - new raster layer - copy paper once more & paste it into selection.
Selections-None - New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group - move the mask up a little (we can move it again once we have everything
else in place)
Duplicate the Mask - Merge Down.
Copy the first framed tag you made & paste as a new layer over the mask
Resize the framed tag 85%SmartSize-all layers unchecked. Move the framed tag so the tops
of the trees in the mask are showing

Copy & paste element #09 from scrapkit as a new layer - resize 12%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 90 left. Move across to right top side of framed tag - Adjust-Sharpen - add drop
shadow.  Duplicate - Image-Mirror. Merge Down.

Copy & paste your 2nd tube as a new layer. Resize as required - move the 2nd tube in centre of framed tag.
Freehand Selection Tool, draw around the tube like this

Selections-Modify-Feather 50 - then hit your delet key once or twice to get a nice feathered effect.
Add drop shadow to the tube.

Add your name & correct copyright. When you have done that, cross out eyes on bottom layer (white)
Merge Visible all other layers. Click COPY & paste as a New Image on your work space. Resize to your liking.
I resized mine 87%SmartSize-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png image
