Beauty and The Beast






Beauty and The Beast
Written 12/11/2019
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube or scrap kit to make your tag unique.
If you want your tag to look just like mine, then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge
of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is completely coincidental.

Supplies Used:
Tube by Laguna called Beauty and The Beast. You can purchase this tube at http://picsfordesign.com  You must have a license to use this image.

Scrap kit by Hania’s Design called Girl from the North. You can purchase this kit at http://picsfordesign.com

Font of your choice.

Mask of your choice. I am using mask #133 by Weescotslass Creations. You can get her awesome masks at http://weescotslasscreations.blogspot.com/2009/04/masks.html


Plugins: (plugins are most generally optional)
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 – Nature (snow drift)


Let's Begin:
Open paper 2 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote the background layer to a raster layer. Resize all layers by 70 % and then resize just the paper layer by 80%. Apply your mask. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open element 46 and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size to a size that you are happy with. Position to the far right of your mask area. Open the Eye Candy 5 Nature snow drift plugin and apply the preset Small, A little white snow.
Open element 74 and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size until it just larger than the house/castle element. Position in front of the house/castle element. Apply the same Eye Candy 5 Nature snow drift plugin using the same settings.
At this time open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size to how you want. Position in front of the gates but leave the pillar on the far right un covered.
Open element 36 and resize until it is nearly the same size as the gates. Copy and paste as a new layer and place in front of the far right pillar.
Open element 27. Re-size 50% and then again by 75%. Image mirror horizontal. Drag to just below the house/castle layer. Position at the top to the left of the house/castle.
Open element 67 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag to just above the moon layer. Re-size until happy. It doesn’t matter at this point because it is behind everything you can move it to where it shows from behind the house/castle and the gates.
Open element 68. Copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size by 75%. Drag behind your tube. Move to the far left. Duplicate. Image mirror horizontal. Move if you need to. I also erased a couple of the stars that were overlapping and I didn’t care for the look of it but that is entirely up to you.
Open element 37. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move behind your tube. Position at the bottom. Move to where it shows out the right side in front of the light and the pillar.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
Thank you for trying my tutorial.

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube or scrap kit to make your tag unique.
If you want your tag to look just like mine, then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge
of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is completely coincidental.
Supplies Used:
Tube is called Potions Master by Veleri. You can download it at http://picsfordesign.com
Scrap Kit is called Dark Witches by Elfairy scrap. You can download it at https://elfairyscrap.com/category/free-scrap-kits-halloween-pu/
Font of your choice. I am using Fire Wire. This is a PTU font.
Mask of your choice. I am using mask #113 by Designs By Vaybs. You can find her blog at http://designsbyvaybs.blogspot.com/
I am using an animation by Scrappy Bit Of Fun. I am using animation # 71 from the bling series. You can download this animation and loads more of her amazing animations at https://scrappybitoffun.blogspot.com/2014/02/massive-download-page.html
Plugins: (plugins are most generally optional)
No plugins were used in this tutorial.

Let's Begin:
Open paper 001ef. Shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote your background layer to a raster layer.  Resize all layers by 75%. Make your canvas size 750x750. Resize again but just this layer by 85%. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group. Add a nice dark drop shadow to your mask layer. I used 0 0 85 12.50 black.
At this time open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize as needed to your desired size. I chose to leave mine a little large. Keep positioned in the center of the mask. Add a drop shadow of your choice to the tube.
Open element 001ef. Copy and paste as new layer. Drag under your tube layer and move to the bottom so your tube is sitting on the book. Resize the book so it looks good sitting under your tube. Add a drop shadow of your choice to the book.
Open element 011ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under your tube layer. Place at the top of the mask area behind the head of your tube. Resize as desired.
Open element 014ef. Copy and paste as new layer and drag under your first book layer. Resize as desired. Move to the far right side kind of near the top of the first book. You want to have the white and red candles and some of the books showing. Add a drop shadow of your choice to this layer.
Open element 009ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under your first book layer. Move to the far left size. Resize as desired. Place so the foot of the candelabra is at the bottom corner of the book your tube is sitting on. Add a drop shadow of your choice to this layer.
Open element 005. Copy and paste as a new layer at the top of your layer palette. Resize as desired. Move to the bottom right corner. Place so that the bottle on the far left is in front of the corner of the book. Add a drop shadow of choice to this layer.
Open element 008ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize as desired. Move the bottom left corner. Place so that the leg of this tube is in front of the corner of the book. Add a drop shadow of choice to this layer.
Open element 021ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize as desired. Move to the bottom and to the right of the crystal ball. Place so its overlapping the crystal ball and in front of the book. Add a drop shadow of choice to this layer.
Open element 029ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize as desired but not too small. Image mirror horizontal. Move to the bottom of the tag and drag to where it is just above the first book layer. Place so it is running along the edge of the book behind the other elements. Add a drop shadow of choice to this layer.
Open element 031ef and copy and paste as a new layer. Resize as needed but you want it quite small. Paste as a new layer. Move to the top right of your tag area. I duplicated this tube and moved the copy to where it was slightly behind the head of my tube. Add a drop shadow of choice to both if you duplicate.
Add your copyright information at this time.
Now if you want to animate like I have then we will continue. If not then simply add your name. Crop and save your tag.
If you are coming along for the animation then lets go…..
 Crop your tag.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill with white and drag to the bottom of your layer palette.
Add your name.
Edit copy merged.
Open animation shop and right click and paste as a new animation. 
Now you need to duplicate your tag to have the same amount of frames as your animation. If you are using the same one as I am then it is 31 frames.
Once that is done select all of the frames in your tag and in  your animation.
Now grab the first frame of your animation and drag it onto the first frame of your tag.
Place right in the center of the crystal ball.  You might have to undo and redo this step until you get the placement where you are happy with it.
View your animation.
Once you are happy you can optimize and save.
Thanks for giving my tutorial a go.
