It's Been Awhile

It’s Been Awhile
Written 7/13/2016
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 one by Stan Dudin. You can purchase her at
Beautiful scrap kit called Blue Jean Patty by Amy Marie’s Kits. You can purchase this kit at
Font of your choice. I am using Biancca. This is a PTU Font.
Xero Porcelain
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 11.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open element 79 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Image free rotate to the left 90 degrees. Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 2. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Flood fill with a gradient of your choice. I made my own by using a darker color and lighter color from the kit. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer under the frame. Position just her face within the framed area. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Apply the Xero Porcelain filter using the default settings. Change the properties of the layer to Luminance Legacy. Add a drop shadow to the tube. Merge the tube and paper layer together. Apply the Dot and Cross filter but change the top value to 35. Add a drop shadow to the frame. Merge all of these layers together.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Place so it is opposite of the tube in the frame. So in my case I image flipped horizontal. Add a drop shadow to the tube once you have her in place.
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:
Using one of the papers from the kit as your fill add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
