From This Day Forward


From This Day Forward
written 4/21/2016

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 I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:

Tube of your choice. Preferably one with a close up. I am using a tube by Very Many. You can purchase her at http://verymanytubes.com/

Beautiful Scrap Kit by Amy Marie. You can purchase it at http://amymarieskits.com/store/ It is called Roses are Pink.

Font of your choice. I am using Vampire Kiss. You can download it at http://www.1001fonts.com/vampire-kiss-demo-font.html I also used Hobby Horse for the text on the book.

Plugins:
Xero Porcelain
Penta Color Dot

Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 40 12.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open element 8 and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame.
Selections modify and expand by 4.
Open paper 24 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag under the frame.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections invert again.
Open the close up of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Position within the frame area.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections select none.
Change the properties of this layer to luminance legacy.
Apply the Xero Porcelain filter using the default settings.
Apply the Penta Color Dot filter using the default settings EXCEPT change the top value to 45.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Merge all of these layers visible.
Open your full version of the tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size as needed.
Move to the far left side of the frame.
Apply the Xero Porcelain filter again using the default settings.
Add a drop shadow.
Open element 11 and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
We are going to work with this a bit before we place it on our tag.
Using a font of your choice add some text .. maybe some brushes. Just kind of dress it up and make it fun.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Image free rotate to the right 20 degrees.
Adjust sharpen.
Drag under your full tube.
Place to the right of her so it is peeking out from behind her and above her legs.
Add a drop shadow.
Now lets dress this up with some of the very gorgeous elements from the kit.
I will list the elements I used.
Placement is entirely up to you.
If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
Feel free to switch it up and use elements I didnt use to help make your tag unique.
