Think Of Me

This tutorial was written by me on May 23rd, 2011 and is the result of my own ideas.  Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP version used: X2, but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies Needed

Scrap kit of choice: I used a gorgeous kit by Tootypup Scraps called "Lily Of The Valley".  This is one of my favourite flowers and Susan is one of my favourite designers so it goes without saying that I adore this kit!  Check Susan's blog HERE to find out where you can get it.  Thanks so much Susan!

Close-up tube of choice: I used the beautiful pinup art of Jennifer Janesko with a valid license.  Jennifer was with CILM when I purchased this tube but can now be found at CDO.

Mask of choice: I used one of Gem's awesome masks, #200.  Download from her blog HERE.

Font of choice: I used Aphrodite Pro, a pay font.

Drop shadow used throughout: H&V 2, Opacity 50, Blur 12.

~~ Remember to save often! ~~

Place the mask in your PSP masks folder or a folder of your choice.

Open a new image, 750 x 750, white background.

From the kit, open cameoFrame-1 and resize 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.

Using the magic wand, click inside the frame and expand the selection by 5.

Open a paper of choice, resize 70%, copy and paste as a new layer and move below the frame.  Invert the selection and tap delete.  Do not deselect.

Open your tube and resize 80%; copy and paste as a new layer above the paper layer.  Arrange as shown and tap delete to remove the excess.  Deselect.

Add your elements, I used:

heart-2: resize 25%; free rotate 15 degrees left and sharpen.
deco-1: resize 40%
netDeco-1: resize 35%
giftbox-2: resize 35%
lilyOfTheValley-5: resize 50%

Apply drop shadow to all layers.

Hide the background layer and merge visible.  Unhide the background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste a paper of choice into the selection, deselect.  Apply the mask and merge the mask group.  Use the raster deform tool to adjust the size and position to your satisfaction.

Crop and resize your tag, then add your name and all applicable copyright and license information.  Save as a png or jpeg and you're finished!  Thanks for trying my tutorial!

I'd love to see your results, email me!

Hugs, Carol
