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.
Please note : explore your creativity when doing tuts - it's the only way to get your tag as an extension of you. If you like, add your own effects ... don't use all the elements I did ... tutorials are just a guideline.
SUPPLIES NEEDED :
I am using a tube by Charlie called LOOKING AWAY which you can purchase at The PSP Project http://www.thepspproject.com/
You need a licence to use this tube
Kit I am using is from Wicked Princess Scraps called a Little Birdie Told Me which you can get here http://wickedprincessscraps.blogspot.com.au/2011/08/freebie-alert-ftu-little-birdy-told-me.html which is a FTU Kit
Filters : Eye Candy HSB Noise and Gradient Glow
Fonts : Century Gothic
Let's Get Tagging
Open up a 650 x 650 transparent image.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer (we will do this now to act as a guideline) Resize image by 77%
Now onto the kit
Open up Frame 5 - copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 77% and move so the tube is showing through the frame. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame, then go to Selections, Modify, x 9 and Invert. Move to the tube layer and hit delete.
Selections Invert, then add a new layer and drag this below the tube layer. Using color #605d60, flood fill this area. Selections, Select None. Apply HSB Noise - using default settings, changing the Lump Width and Height to approx 100. I then used Toadies Posterize with default settings.
Open Element Bird 3 - copy and paste as new layer. Image resize by 66%, then mirror image, and move to the left hand side of the frame. Adjust Hue & Saturation with these settings
COLORIZE: HUE 4 and SATURATION 0
Opene Element Sand Sprinkly - copy and paste as new layer. Duplicate image, and mirror. Layers, Merge Down. Colorize with the same settings as before. Move this layer down, so it is the bottom layer.
Open Element CallaLily - copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 66% and move to the left of the frame, sitting it behind the bird. Colorize with the same settings as before.
Open Element Fence - copy and paste as a new layer. Resize by 63%, and move this so it sits at the bottom of the frame. Colorize as before.
Open Element Flower 2 - copy and paste as a new layer. Resize by 63% and move this to the right of the frame. Colorize as before.
Open Element Flower Spray - copy and paste as a new layer. Resize by 63% and move this to the bottom of the tag. Colorize as before.Adjust Opacity to 74%
You can add any sparkles/twinks etc that you like. I found this butterfly spray in my collection but have no idea where I got it from, so can't point you in the direction to get it - SORRY :(
Using Century Gothic - type out the words WISHFUL MEMORY in black - add a Gradient Glow and postition towards the bottom of the tag.Convert to Raster Layer.
Now - using Carpenter Font Size 48, and color white - type the same words ... and lay them over the top of the wording already there. Add Gradient Glow. Convert to Raster Layer.
Now add your name - in the same way ...
