Alannah's Blues


[Click image above to go to full sized image.]

This tutorial was written on February 26, 2009, using Paint Shop Pro, version X.03. It should be okay to do with other versions as well. I just find X.03 more comfortable for me. You may download a free trial of Paint Shop Pro, version X2, from Corel. Any similarities between this tut and any others you may see are purely coincidental.

You will also need:

Tube of your choice. I'm using the awesome artwork of Jasmine Becket-Griffith. You must have a license to use her work. You may purchase that license at CILM.

Scrap kit by Mirella of Scrap It Sassy. It is a *beautiful* PTU kit, called Let It Be. I have another tut, posted right below this one, with the same kit.

Filters: Mura's Meister > Copies

Font: I used Inscription LET

Supplies: Becky_Mask023, available here.

Okay, let's begin.

Open a new image, 700 x 700, white.

Add a new raster layer. Selections > Select All

Open Paper4. Copy and paste INTO SELECTION. Selections > Select none

Apply your mask. Delete the mask layer, answer "yes" to the pop-up question and merge group.

Open Flower2. Resize 65%. Copy and paste as new layer.

Effects > Plugins > Mura's Meister > Copies with the settings below:

Hit okay.

Add your tube. Resize if needed, position and drop shadow

Highlight your floral circle layer.

Grab your magic wand and click inside the floral circle. Selections > Invert

Highlight your tube layer.

Grab your eraser brush and erase any part of your tube that is hanging over the bottom of the floral circle. Selections > Select none.

Open Bow6. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position where desired. Drop shadow.

Open Butterfly2. Resize 80%. Copy and paste as new layer. Position where desired. Drop shadow.

Open Doodle2. Copy and paste in the upper right area of your tag. See mine for reference purposes. Duplicate this layer and Image > Mirror. Merge these two layers down and drop shadow. Duplicate this layer and Image > Flip. Position where desired. Merge these two layers down, and drag that layer to below your mask layer.

Add your name. I used color #b59a79. Drop shadow your name.

Add your copyright, license information and taggers'/watermark.

Resize your tag to your taste and save! We're done! Quick 'n` easy! Have a great day!
