Please do not rip this tutorial apart or claim it as your own work.
This tutorial is done in PSP 9 but maybe done in other versions as well. A basic understanding of the program and it's tools is needed.
Tube of choice .. I am using the beautiful tube by Akubaka called Beautiful Oblivion which you can purchase at The PSP Project.You can find it here http://www.thepspproject.com/
The kit is a FTU add on (Limited Time) by Fanette Design called Rain Over Me, which you can download here http://digital-crea.fr/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=8769 - this kit is just gorgeous.
PlugIns : Eye Candy HSB Noise and Gradient Glow
Fonts : Carpenter and Haettenschweiler
Let's Get Started :)
Open a new 650 x 650 image - you can always resize later
Open up your tube - copy and paste as new layer. (We are doing this now so we have the tube and can check the position of elements etc.)
Now back to the kit :
Open Element 16 - copy and paste as new layer, resize by 55% and rotate to the left by 90degrees.
Click inside the frame with your magic wand, Selections, Modify by 5, Selections Invert.
Move down to your tube layer and hit delete, making sure your tube is sitting exactly how you like inside the frame.
Selections Invert again, and then make a new layer, and fill with a color from your tube. You can also use a paper from the kit if you like. I added HSB Noise effects to this layer. Move this layer down below your tube layer.
Open Element 33 - copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 22% and move to the right of the frame.
Open Element 26 - copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 18% and move to the right of the frame ... moving down below the stump element.
Open Element 28 - copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 22% and place in front of the frame.
Open Element 27 - copy and paste as new layer, resizing by 22%, and moving to the left of the frame.
Open Element 18 - copy and paste as new layer, resizing by 22%, and moving to the left of the frame.
Open Element 25 - copy and paste as new layer, resizing by 22%, and moving to the left of the frame, dragging this layer down so it sits behind the bucket.
Open Element 4 - copy and paste as new layer, resizing by 22% and moving to the left, sitting the lamp in front of the stump.
Open Element 29 - Copy and paste as new later, resizing by 22% and lowering the opacity of the layer to 44.
Open Element 17 - copy and paste as new layer, resizing by 22%. Make this layer your top layer. I added HSB Noise to the ribbon element as well.
Be creative ... this tut is only a guide so feel free to add any other elements you like to finish off your tag.
Add a new layer and floodfill with a color from your tube. Using your mask of choice, apply the mask (Layers, New Mask Layer, from image. Merge Group).
Add your Copyright Information, and your name and save as a PNG file.
As always, I would love to see any tags you make from this tutorial.
