This tutorial was written by me on December 2nd, 2012. You will need the following supplies:
"Vintage November" is a lovely kit by Designed by Stina. Please visit Stina's blog HERE to find links to her stores. Thanks so much hun!
I used mask #80 by Vaybs. Download from her blog HERE.
Eye Candy 4000; Gradient Glow
Font: I used Hummingbird, a pay font. If you don't have it and don't want to buy it, any nice script font will work well. Try Hancock, available HERE.
Drop shadow used: H&V 2, Opacity 62, Blur 10.
~~ Remember to save often! ~~
Place the mask in your PSP mask folder or a folder of your choice.
Open a new image, 750 x 750, white background.
From the kit, open Frame04 and resize 80%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Free rotate 90 degrees right.
Using the magic wand, click inside the frame and expand the selection by 5.
Open a paper of choice and resize 55%. Copy and paste as a new layer and move below the frame. Arrange as desired; invert the selection and tap delete. Deselect.
Open Window01 and resize 40%. Copy and paste as a new layer inside the frame and move to the left side.
Using the rectangle selection tool, draw out a selection around the window , like this:
Tap delete to remove the paper and you will have something that looks like the window above.
