Grecian Beauty 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 sitting tube  - I a tube of ©Gennadily Koufay
You can get his tubes from CDO
But any sitting tube will do
Scrapkit is called "Greece" from Eileens Design
Template #31 from Eileens Designs
Mask #25 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs
Font I used is called "UKIJ Moy Qelem" from
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy4000-GradientGlow for your name & copyright

Open up the mask #25 & minimise it. Also open up the tube you will be
using & set it aside.

Open up template #31, click SHIFT + D to copy it. Close off the original template.
Delete Eileens copyright TOU layer (top layer)
Also delete raster layer 7.
Make Vector 1 layer active - new raster layer - Layers- send to bottom. Flood Fill with White

Copy & paste paper #8 from scrapkit as a new layer -
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group - Duplicate - Merge Down - Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 90 left
We will resize at end of tutorial so you will see the mask better.

Make Vector 1 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat - copy & paste paper #8 into selection
Selections-None. Adjust-Sharpen.
Delete the original vector 1 layer (we will be deleting each original layer after we have filled
with papers)
Add this drop shadow

Make Vector 2 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat - copy & paste another paper from scrapkit
into selection. Selection-None. Add drop Shadow.
Paste papers into selections with all the other Vector layers.

Now we will add some of the elements from the scrapkit
Copy & paste element #54 from scrapkit as a new layer - move down a little.
Copy & paste element #43 from scrapkit as a new layer. Move down under the fence layer
& across to the right a little. Duplicate -Image-Mirror. Merge Down.
Copy & paste element #7 from scrapkit as a new layer - move down & across to the left a little -
Copy & paste element #19 from scrapkit as a new layer - resize 70%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.
Image-Free Rotate-Rotate left 60. Duplicate-Image-Mirror-Merge Down-Adjust-Sharpen
Add any other elements you like.

Have your top layer active - Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Once you have done that,
cross out the eyes on the bottom layer (white) & the mask layer - Merge Visible all other layers.
Resize your merged layer 90%SmartSize-all layer unchecked.. Open up the eyes on the other 2 layers.
Add your name & correct copyright.
When you have done that - cross out the eyes again on the bottom layer (white) Merge all other layers Visible.
Click COPY & Paste as a New Image on your workspace. Resize to your liking. I resized mine 74%SmartSize-
all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png Image
