Autumn Beauty Queen

This tutorial was written by me on October 12th, 2013 and was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.  You will need the following supplies:

"Autumn Sunset" is a stunning kit created by Bev of Horseplay's Pasture Designs and is filled with the beautiful elements and colours of fall.  You will find it at Scraps From The Heart.  Thanks so much Bev!

I used the gorgeous art of Camilla Drankenborg, available at Up Your Art.  This beautiful tube is entitled "Beauty Queen 2". 

Mask #19 from Moonbeams & Spiderwebs.

Font: I used Grand Prix ES, HERE.

~~ 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 Element 30 and resize 80%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.  Using the magic wand, click inside the frame and expand the selection by 5.

Open Paper 9 and resize 70%.  Copy and paste as a new layer.  Move below the frame and arrange as desired.  Invert the selection and tap delete, do not deselect.

Open Element 55 and resize 80%.  Copy and paste as a new layer above the paper layer.  Tap delete and deselect.

Using the magic wand, click inside the frame again but do not expand the selection.  Resize the tube 75%, copy and paste as a new layer and arrange as shown on top of the frame.  Invert the selection and use the eraser to remove the sections of the tube that overlap the frame at the bottom and on the left side.  Deselect and adjust the placement of the tube if necessary.  Apply a drop shadow of choice to the tube, I used Vertical: -7, Horizontal: 2, Opacity: 35, Blur: 15.

Apply drop shadow of choice to the leaves and frame, I used H&V: 2, O: 55, B: 8.

Add the other elements, I used:

El6: do not resize; erase the trunk and arrange on the right side, behind the frame, above the background layer.  Duplicate and arrange on the left side.  See my tag for reference.
El13: resize 65%
El19: resize 50%
El46: resize 50%
El47: resize 50%, then 70%.  Free rotate 12° right and arrange on top of element 46.
El64: resize 67%; arrange across the top of the frame.  Duplicate and arrange the copy on the bottom of the frame.
El66: resize 30%
El80: resize 50%; duplicate and mirror.

Apply drop shadow above to all elements.

Hide the background layer and merge visible.  Unhide the background and add a new raster layer.  Select all.  Copy and paste Paper 3 into the selection; deselect.  Apply Moonbeams & Spiderwebs mask #19 and merge mask group.

Crop and resize your tag, add your name and all applicable copyright and license information.  Save as a png and you're finished.  Enjoy your new tag and thanks for trying my tutorial!

If you'd like to show me your tag, please email me HERE.  I love to see what people do with my tutorials!  :)

Hugs, Carol♥
