Don't Stop the Music


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

This tutorial was written on March 18, 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:

A tube of your choice. I'm using the great artwork of Ismael Rac. You must have a license to use his work. You may purchase that license at My PSP Tubes.

Scrap kit is by Bluey at Bluedream Designs. It's a FTU kit, called Club!. Be sure to leave some love for the beautiful freebie!

Filters: No outside filters used in this tut!

Font: I used Fashion Victim

Supplies: The music score, which you can find here. This was made by Jen Caputo. I just got her e-mail allowing me permission to use this! YAY!

Open your music score supplies and minimize in PSP.

Let's do it!! This is another quickie!

Create a new file, 700 x 700, white.

Open Frame2. Copy and paste as a new layer.

Open Paper3. Copy and paste as a new layer, under your frame layer.

Highlight the frame layer. Grab your magic wand and click inside the frame. This includes clicking inside all the outer holes in the scallop part of the frame, too!

Selections > Modify > Expand by 5. Selections > Invert

Highlight your paper layer. Hit delete. Selections > Select none.

Open the record. Copy and paste as a new layer. Drop shadow your record.

Add your tube. Resize, position and drop shadow to your liking.

To make the tube "come out" of the frame:

Highlight your frame layer again. Click inside just the center of the frame this time, with your magic wand. Selections > Invert.

Highlight your tube layer.

Grab your eraser brush and erase any of the tube that is overlapping the bottom of the frame. Selections > Select none.

Drop shadow your frame.

Open Label3. Copy and paste as a new layer. Rotate 35° left. Place to your liking. See my tag for my placement. Drop shadow this label.

Open iPod1. Copy and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%. Rotate 20° left. Place to the left of your frame. Again, seem my tag for placement. Drop shadow the iPod.

Open Label1. Resize 85%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position where you like it. Drop shadow this label.

Open your "music-score-notes-swirly" by Jen Caputo. Resize 125%. Copy and paste as a new layer. Duplicate this layer twice. Move one down to the bottom of your tag and one to the middle. Position how you like them. See my tag for reference. Merge these three layers down.

Add your name. I used black. Stroke width of 3, color #c34471.

Drop shadow your name.

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

Resize your tag to the size of your choice. Merge your layers, and save! We're done! I hope you enjoyed this tut!
