Mermaids Have More Fun


Mermaids Have More Fun
written 2/27/2016

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies that I have used. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:

Let's Begin:
Open the tag template and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Remove the following layers from the template:
Raster1, font info, mermaid blue, mermaid white, mermaid d/s, be your own kind of white, be your own kind d/s and bg.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Starting at the bottom and working up fill each of the layers with papers from the kit.
On the bottom oval layer add another layer underneath it and make it a little large and fill with white and apply noise.
On the waves layer add the same noise as you did to the white layer.
On the inner blue circle and outer blue circle apply the same noise.
Once done add a drop shadow to all layers.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer at the top and re-size if necessary.
Position in the center of the tag template.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 71 and re-size by 80%.
Copy and paste as a new layer and drag under your tube.
Move to the bottom and set so your mermaid is sitting in the clamshell.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 67 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag under the clamshell.
Move to the far left so it is peeking out from behind the bottom of the clamshell.
Add a drop shadow.
Duplicate and image flip horizontal.
Move this one to the top right of the clamshell.
Open element 59 and re-size by 50% and then again by 60%.
Copy and paste as a new layer drag under the clamshell.
Move to the right side and make it peek out from the side of the shell.
Open element 48 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size as you wish.
I duplicated mine a few times and re-sized each of them and placed them randomly around the tag.
Open element 24 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag down to just above the squarish layer.
Move to the far left side so it is peeking out behind the wheel layers.
Add a drop shadow.
Duplicate and image flip horizontal.
Move to the far right.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop.
Now lets get ready to add the animation.
Merge together all layers from the top down to your tube (include your tube in this first set of merged layers.
Hide this new layer.
Merge together the rest of the layers.
Layers new raster layer and drag to the bottom.
Flood fill with white.
Copy merged the white layer and the layer with the clamshell on it.
Open animation shop and right click and paste as a new animation.
Open the animation you are going to use.
I am using the bubble fountain.
Take note of the amount of frames in the animation. For me its 18.
Duplicate your tag layer to match the frames.
Select all frames in both your animation and your tag.
Grab frame 1 of the animation and drag it onto frame 1 of your tag.
Place where you want.
Now back to psp and copy the layer that has your tube on it.
Back to animation shop and paste this as a new animation.
Repeat the same steps as above.
Duplicate and drag onto the tag.
View your animated tag.
Optimize and save.
