This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of psp.
I use paint shop 9, but any version should work.
All of my tutorials are of my own creations any similarity with any other tutorial is purely coincidental.Please do not copy my tutorials please link back to my blog!
Tube of choice.
I am using artwork by Elias Chatzoudis. A PTU Artist. You must purchase and obtain a license to use his work. You can purchase this tube here.
Scrapkit PTU Black'd Emo Girl by Purples Kreationz.
You can get this kit here.
2 masks of choice
Font of choice. I used LDJ Jilly Nilly
Filters needed: none, I don't tend to use them much, lol
Don't forget to save often.
LET'S GET STARTED
Open a new image 700x700
When you see C/P in the tut that means Copy and Paste.
Add drop shadow as desired. See my tag for exact placement.
C/P frame1 resize80%. Using your magic wand click inside of frame, selections-modify-expand by 7-selections-invert, C/P paper of choice or paper19, hit delete. Move under frame in your layer palette.
C/P tube of choice place on the left side of the frame.
C/P elements of choice or use mine below. See my tag for exact placement.
C/P bunny resize85% place at the bottom on left side.
C/P mp3 resize80% beside the bunny move under your bunny in the layers palette.
C/P cake resize50% place beside the mp3.
C/P candle resize50% place beside the cake.
C/P cake2 resize50% place beside the candle.Move the candle above the 2 cupcakes in the layers palette.
C/P ribbon1 place towards the bottom of the frame.
C/P ribbon2 also place at the bottom of the frame.
C/P sparkles move just above your paper layer in your layers palette, place in the lower right of the frame, duplicate and flip. If using the same tube as I am this will look good, if using something different you might need to play with them to make them look right.
C/P flower3 resize75% place on the right side of the frame in the middle.
C/P heart2 resize50% place over the flower.
C/P butterfly resize60% at the top of the frame to the right a bit.
C/P wire move to the left top of the frame, send to bottom layer duplicate-mirror, duplicate again-flip, duplicate again-mirror. Move them around so that only some of it is showing around the frame.
C/P paper11 apply mask, merge down. Add a drop shadow to this mask.
C/P paper18 apply and different mask, merge down.
Crop merged opaque.
Merge visible. Re-size to desired size.
