English Portrait




English Portrait
Written 8/12/2016
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 the work of Jennifer Janesko. I purchased this particular tube while she was licensed with CILM however you now purchase her work at http://cdoestore.com
The beautiful kit is a mini kit by Amy Marie’s Kits. It is called Liyan Mini. You can purchase it at http://amymarieskits.com/store/
Font of your choice. I am using Bananas which you can download at http://www.1001fonts.com/bananas-personal-use-font.html
Plugins:
NONE
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 9.00 Grey

Let's Begin:
Open f1 from the kit 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 6 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame. Move around until you see the part of the paper you want inside of the frame. Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections invert again. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame and position within the selected area of the frame. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none.
Add a drop shadow to both the tube and the frame.
You can merge these 3 layers together if you like to keep your layer palette tidy like I do.
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:

Add a drop shadow to each element.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.

Crop and save.
