"Fall" 'ing Apples - Forum Set



“Fall”ing Apples – Forum Set
Written 8/25/2016
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:
No tubes used in this tutorial however if you wish to use one that is up to you. I have used the bears from the scrapkit.
Adorable scrap kit by Amy Marie’s Kits. It is called Apple Of My Eye. You can purchase it at http://amymarieskits.com/store/
Font of your choice. I am using Kids Play. You can download it at http://www.fontspace.com/jonathan-s-harris/kids-play
Plugins:
NONE
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 5.00 Black

Let's Begin:
We are going to start off with the tag itself.
Open a new blank canvas that will give you plenty of room to work with. Make sure it is a transparent canvas.
Using your rectangle preset tool turn off the background color and set the foreground color to whatever color you choose. Set the width to 4.50. Draw out a rectangle to the size you want for the base of your tag.
Using your magic wand to select the inside of the rectangle. Selections modify and expand by 1. Open a paper of your choice from the kit and copy and paste as a new layer and drag under the frame. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Open element 8 and copy and paste as a new layer. Place to the left side of your canvas. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 6 and re-size by 50% and then again by 85%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place to the right of the tree. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 12 and re-size by 50% and then again by 75% and copy and paste as a new layer and place to the left of the tree. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 9 and re-size by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer and place at the top of the frame to the right of the tree. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 19 and re-size by 75%. Copy and paste as a new layer and drag to the bottom. Move to the far right side of the frame. Make it appear to be coming out of the word “Fall”. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 33 and re-size by 50%. Copy and paste as a new layer and move to the far bottom right of the frame. Add a drop shadow.
Add your name in the center.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
Now lets make our avatar to match.
Open a blank canvas the size you want it to be. Usually a good avatar size is 150x150.
Open the paper of your choice from the kit and copy and paste as a new layer.
Open the tube from the kit or the tube you are using and copy and paste as a new layer and re-size. Place in the bottom right corner of the avatar. Add a drop shadow.
Add any another elements you want.
Add a 2 pixel width border in the color that you wish.
Add your name or initial.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
