Time For Love




Time For Love
Written 1/18/2017
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 them 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 of your choice. I am using a tube by Mariel Designs called Perfect Love. She was created for the Perfect Love Collab at Scraps N Company. You can get this entire collab free with your $13.50 purchase. Check out the collab at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=587_144&products_id=25373
The scrap kit I used is also called Perfect Love and is by Chili Designz. This kit is also part of the awesome collab.
Font of your choice. I am using Saldina. This is a PTU font.
Plugins:
NONE
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 30 3.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open frame 2 from the kit. Shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Re-size if you wish. Make your canvas large enough to work with. Using your magic wand select the inside of all sections of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 5. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Open paper 1 and copy and paste into selection. Selections select none. Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size until she is just barely bigger than the frame. Move to where she is standing between the main part of the frame and the 2 smaller parts to the right. Add a drop shadow.
Open the floor element from the kit. Copy and paste as a new layer. Drag to the bottom. Move to the bottom of the frame as we are going to make the tube stand on it.  Re-size until it just slightly larger than the frame on both sides. Now if you notice there are some pretty sharp lines and angles and we want to get rid of those. There are 2 ways you can do this. Use your eraser tool and set your hardness down to about 25 and the opacity to about 4. The size to medium to large and just around the edge and erase some of the bits and get rid of the straightness. The second way is to use your freehand selection tool set to freehand and just draw around the edges in an imperfect manner. Selections invert and hit delete. You can use your eraser again to get rid of any sharpness or you can use your soften tool. Just check out the tools in psp they are pretty handy.

Now let’s dress the tag up with elements from the kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use other elements to make your tag unique. Placement of the elements is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
Elements I used:
balloons
clock
corner2
deco
gate
Hearts2

If you want your tag to look just like mine them 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 of your choice. I am using a tube called Rebel Girl by Andy Cooper. You can purchase this tube at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_652_304&products_id=25314
The awesome matching scrap kit is also called Rebel Girl by Blissful Designs. You can purchase this scrap kit at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=25323
Mask of your choice. I am using mask # 161 by Insatiable Dreams. You can get her masks at http://insatiabledreams.net
Font of your choice. I am using Blanche de la Fontaine. You can download it at http://www.fontspace.com/octotype/blanche-de-la-fontaine
Plugins:
Eye Candy 5 Nature Snowdrift (optional – I used on my name)
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 14.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open paper 7 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote the background layer to a raster layer. Re-size if you wish. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Position at the bottom of the mask in the center. Add a drop shadow to the tube.
Open element 14 and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size by 75%. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Now we are going to clone part of your tube into the frame using the clone tool. I just learned this nifty trick (Thanks Vix A Roo) in all the years of psp’ing I have never used the clone tool and now I will be cloning everything LOL .. OK let me walk you through it.
Ok Open your tube or whatever image you want to clone into the frame. Open your clone tool and select a brush shape that you want. I used a rounded square one so it would fit inside the frame. Set the settings like below : (thanks Vix again for the settings)
Size 200
Step 32
Opacity 50
Right click on the area of your tube that you want to clone. You will see an outline around the area with an x in the middle. Go back to your tag. Make sure you are on the blank new layer under the frame. Left click and it will place the area that you cloned. You can left click multiple times if you wish to make the image darker. This part is completely up to you.
Add a drop shadow to the frame. Merge the frame and tube together. Image free rotate to the right by 24 degrees. Adjust sharpen. Move under your main tube and place near the top so you can see the framed image from behind the tube.
Now let’s dress the tag up with elements from the kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use other elements to make your tag unique. Placement of the elements is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
