This tutorial was written by me on October 24th, 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 was written with the assumption that you have a general knowledge of PSP, its tools and functions.
Scrap kit of choice: I used a breathtaking kit by Tootypup Scraps called "Serenity". This is an exclusive kit, you can find it at Aussie Scrap Designs. Thanks so much for this gorgeous kit hun!
Tube of choice: I used the beautiful fantasy art of Rebecca Cox with a valid license. Becca was with CILM when I purchased this tube but you can now find her work at Artistic Dreams Imaging.
Mask of choice: I used one of Bev's wonderful masks, #1. Download from her blog HERE.
Font of choice, I used Mutlu Ornamental, HERE.
Drop shadow used throughout: H&V 2, Opacity 55, Blur 8
~~ 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 gardenRocks-1 and resize 60%. Copy and paste as a new layer, move to the left side of your workspace (see my tag for placement).
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, arrange in front of the rocks on the right side.
Now add your other elements, I used:
wordart-1: resize 50%
flowerDeco-3: resize 40%
flowerDeco-5: resize 35%; mirror
bird-1: resize 25%, then 85% twice
mushrooms-2: resize 15%
butterfly-6: resize 10%, duplicate twice, mirror one of the copies
fern-1: resize 40%, then 85%; duplicate
flowerLeaf-1: resize 10%, then 85%
Apply drop shadow to all layers. Hide the background layer and merge visible. Unhide 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.
Crop and resize your tag, add your name and all applicable copyright and license information. Save as a png or jpg and you're finished!
