New Tag and My Very first Tutorial

Wanna Be My Valentine?


I wrote this tutorial on Jan.27th/09,
and any resemblance to others online is purely a coincidence.

This Tutorial assumes that your familiar with using Paint Shop Pro.


Materials Needed: Scrapkit of your choice,or the one I used which is called''Sweet Valentine''.
It's a FTU Kit which I got from Scraps Dimensions .You can visit her blog
HERE"
Mask: WSL_84 by Weescotlass Which you can get
HERE"
Also you will need a Tube of choice.I used the beautiful artwork of Popeye Wong with general
permission.

You can get his tubes from his site HERE"

Ok Let's get started!

Open all your material in psp and put your mask into your mask folder in psp.
Now onto the fun stuff.lol...

Go to File and click on new.Make your canvas 600 by 600.Floodfill with white.
Open your Rose frame, edit,copy and paste as new layer onto your white canvas.
Resize the frame 80%.
On frame layer, with your magic wand click inside the frame.Selections Modify expand by 12.
Now open the paper you want to use and resize it 80% then go to edit,copy,and paste as new layer. Then go to selections,invert,then hit delete on your keyboard.
Move paper layer under your frame.Your frame layer should be the first layer in your layers palett now.
Make your frame layer active.Give it a drop shadow of your choice.I used H 2 V 2 Opacity 50 and Blur 5 color Black.
Now open your tube and copy and paste it as a new layer.You may have to resize it to suit your needs,and give it the same drop shadow as frame.
Open the candy box tube and resize 50% edit,copy,and paste as new layer.
Open the rose tube and resize 50% three times,then 80% once and edit,copy,and paste as new layer,and place it on the cover of the candy box.(Refer to mine) Give the candybox a drop shadow aswell.
Now make your white background layer active.
Open another paper of choice,or the one I used,then edit,copy,and paste as new layer.
Then go to layers,Load/Save Mask.Load Mask from disc.Find the WSL_84 mask.
Use the settings sourse luminance checked,Fit to layer checked,and Hide all mask checked.
Click load. Then on your layer palett,click merge group.
Now you can add your name and /or your watermark,copyrights,etc.
Now merge all layers down.
Save your creation as a jpeg file.


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
