Summers Last Fling
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.
Tube of your choice. Preferably one with a close up. I am using the work of Zlata M. The tube is called Barely and can be purchased at http://picsfordesign.com
The scrap kit is called Sea Breeze by Purple Dreams Scraps and can also be purchased at http://picsfordesign.com
Mask of your choice. I am using mask#451 by Vix. You can download her masks at http://www.freewebs.com/vixpsp/
Font of your choice. I am using Vallerie. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 6.50 Black
Open paper 5 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote the background layer to a raster layer. Make your canvas large enough to work with. Re-size the paper if you wish. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group. Selections select all float and defloat. Open the close up of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Position over the mask how you want within the selected area. Selections invert and hit delete. I hit delete a couple of times to bring mine in a little bit from the edges but this is completely up to you and the mask you may be using. Once you are happy selections select none. Change the properties of the tube layer to luminance legacy. Lower the opacity to 60. Merge these 2 layers together if you like to keep your layer palette organized like I do.
Open element 26 from the kit and copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the far left side. Drag under the mask layer. Duplicate and move this duplicate over to the right side. Merge these 2 layers together.
Open element 49 and copy and paste as a new layer on top of the layer palette. Place in the bottom left of the mask area. Duplicate and move this one down and to the right a bit.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Place on the bottom right so she is sitting in the sand. Add a drop shadow.
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.
