Love Is In The Air
This tutorial was written by me on February 9th, 2013 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP. You will need the following supplies:
I used the gorgeous art of Mitzi Sato Wiuff. This tube is entitled "Romanza" and is breathtaking! You can purchase Mitzi's tubes at PSP TubeStop. You must have a license to use.
I used a lovely FTU kit called "Love Me Love You" by Mirella at A Space Between. Please download from her blog HERE.
"Hearts On Ice" template #4 from Twyzted T's Playroom.
Plug-in used: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (for name).
Mask #3 from DeeSign Depot. Download from her blog HERE (scroll down).
Font used: Shalimar Swash, a pay font. Any fun script font will work, try Susie's Hand, HERE.
~~ Remember to save often! ~~
Place the mask in your PSP mask folder or a folder of your choice.
Open the template in PSP, shift + d to duplicate and close the original.
Delete Raster 11 and all the shadow layers. Resize all layers 80%, then change the canvas size to 800 x 750.
Unhide Raster 1, activate and flood fill the blank area with white.
Activate Raster 5, select all, float and defloat. From the kit, open Paper 11 and resize 65%. Copy and paste as a new layer and move into place. Invert selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete original layer. Apply a drop shadow of choice, I used H&V 0, Opacity 62, Blur 12.
Repeat the steps above for Copy of Raster 5 layer.
Activate Raster 6, select all, float and defloat. Open Paper 16 and resize 70%. Copy and paste as a new layer, invert selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete original layer.
Activate Raster 8 and apply drop shadow. I used H&V 2, Opacity 62, Blur 10.
Activate Raster 7, select all, float and defloat. Open Paper 4 and resize 75%. Copy and paste as a new layer, invert selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete original layer.
Activate Raster 9 and apply drop shadow above.
Activate Raster 2, select all, float and defloat. Open Paper 1 and resize 70%. Copy and paste as a new layer, invert selection and tap delete. Deselect and delete original layer.
Activate Raster 3 and apply drop shadow above.
Activate Copy of Raster 2, select all, float and defloat. Copy and paste Paper 1 as a new layer (it will still be on the clipboard), invert the selection and tap delete. Do not deselect. Open the Romanza Girl tube and resize 120%. Copy and paste as a new layer and move into place within the selection. See my tag for placement. Tap delete and deselect. Change the blend mode to Multiply and reduce the opacity as desired - 50% to 65%. Apply drop shadow above.
Activate Raster 4 and apply drop shadow. Repeat for Raster 10 and Copy Of Raster 10.
Copy and paste the Romanza Girl tube as a new layer. Move to the left side of the tag. Apply drop shadow.
Now have some fun and add your elements. I used:
#3: resize 20%, then 80%
#6: resize 40%; free rotate 85 degrees right. Duplicate and mirror.
#11: resize 25%, then 85%. Duplicate as desired, mirror some and resize some copies a further 85%.
#12: resize 20%; free rotate 20 degrees left and sharpen. Duplicate and mirror
#13: resize 60%; free rotate 65 degrees right
#14: resize 60%
#21: resize 50%
#22: resize 20%
#32: resize 30%, duplicate and mirror as desired.
Resize the butterfly that comes with the tube 35%. Copy and paste as a new layer.
Apply drop shadow above to all elements.
Hide background layer, merge visible all other layers. Resize merged layer 85%.
Unhide background layer and add a new raster layer. Select all. Copy and paste Paper 12 into the selection. Deselect. Apply DeeSign Depot mask #3 and merge the mask group. Use the raster deform tool to adjust mask size and placement.
Crop and resize your tag. Add your name using colour #5a1102 and apply Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (if using). Under the Colour tab, select "Medium" and change the colour to #f8ebc2. Under the Basic tab, change the settings to this:
