Batter Up

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!

I am always interested in seeing what you create using my tuts. You can send your results to me at


Tube of choice
I am using artwork  by Alexander McMillan. A PTU Artist. You must purchase and obtain a license to use. Which you can get at SATC here  

Scrapkit of choice or the one I used. I used FTU Batter Up by QueenBrat Designs which you can get here scroll down a little bit to find it

Mask of choice of the one I used. I used mask340 by WSL which you can get here

Font of choice.

Open a new image 700x700.

C/P  frame01 resize75%, place in middle of image, using your manual color correction tool, click on the black part of the frame to change it to match a color from your tube.   Using your magic wand click inside of the circle. Selections-modify-expand by 6. C/P paper01-selections-invert, hit delete, change the color of the paper the same way as the frame. Move the paper under the frame layer. C/P close up of tube, duplicate and close the duplicated tube, click on original tube and hit delete. Select none. Move paper and original tube under frame.
