Dreaming Of You

This tutorial was written by me on April 23rd, 2013 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP.  You will need the following supplies:

I used a gorgeous scrap kit called "Elegance In Black" by Lady Noelle Buttons & Bows Scraps.  It's available at Scraps From The Heart.

I used the stunning art of Katerina Koukiotis.  This tube is entitled "Dreaming of You" and is available at PSP Tube Stop.

Plugin: VM Natural: Sparkle

Mask #82 by Signature Collections.

Font: I used Young Love, HERE.

~~ Remember to save often! ~~

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

Open a new image, 800 x 700, white background.

From the kit, open frame 08 and resize 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.

Click inside the frame with the magic wand.  Selections > Modify > Expand > expand by 5.

Open paper 5 and resize 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and move beneath the frame.  Invert selection and tap delete.  Do not deselect.

Open drapes and resize 30%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and arrange as shown.  Tap delete, do not deselect.

Resize the tube 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer and arrange.  Tap delete and deselect.  Apply drop shadow, I used V 2, H 6, Opacity 65, Blur 15.

Open frame 07 and resize 25%.  Duplicate twice and arrange side by side to create a window (see my tag for reference).  Merge these three layers together and move below the drapes.

Using the magic wand, click inside each of the "windows".  Expand the selection by 5.  Add a new raster layer and move beneath the merged layer.  Flood fill the selection with black.  Deselect.

Apply VM Natural: Sparkle using these settings:

(Click to see full size image)

Open Frame 10 and resize 34%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.  Click inside the frame with the magic wand and expand the selection by 5.

Add a new raster layer and move below the frame.  Flood fill with black, do not deselect.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, do not resize.  Arrange within the round frame and tap delete.  Deselect.

Activate the black layer once again and apply the Sparkles plugin using the same settings as before.

Now add your elements, I used:

fan 01: resize 35%
glass: resize 28%
perfume bottle 1: resize 25%
perfume bottle 2: resize 25%, then 85%; mirror
lipstick: resize 20%
vase crystal: resize 50%
wordart 01: resize 35%

Apply drop shadow to all elements.  I used H&V 2, Opacity 75, Blur 10.

Hide the background layer and merge visible.  Unhide background layer and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste paper 6 into the selection; deselect.  Apply Signature Collections mask #82 and merge the mask group.

Crop and resize your tag.  Add your name (Young Love font, Size 95, Stroke 0, colour white).  Apply drop shadow, I used H&V 2, Opacity 75, Blur 5.

Add all applicable copyright and license info.  Save as a png and you're finished!  Thanks for trying my tutorial!

Hugs, Carol♥
