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. I am using a tube called Rebel Girl by Andy Cooper. You can purchase this tube at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_652_304&products_id=25314
The awesome matching scrap kit is also called Rebel Girl by Blissful Designs. You can purchase this scrap kit at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=25323
Mask of your choice. I am using mask # 161 by Insatiable Dreams. You can get her masks at http://insatiabledreams.net
Font of your choice. I am using Blanche de la Fontaine. You can download it at http://www.fontspace.com/octotype/blanche-de-la-fontaine
Eye Candy 5 Nature Snowdrift (optional – I used on my name)
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 14.00 black
Open paper 7 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Promote the background layer to a raster layer. Re-size if you wish. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Position at the bottom of the mask in the center. Add a drop shadow to the tube.
Open element 14 and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size by 75%. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Now we are going to clone part of your tube into the frame using the clone tool. I just learned this nifty trick (Thanks Vix A Roo) in all the years of psp’ing I have never used the clone tool and now I will be cloning everything LOL .. OK let me walk you through it.
Ok Open your tube or whatever image you want to clone into the frame. Open your clone tool and select a brush shape that you want. I used a rounded square one so it would fit inside the frame. Set the settings like below : (thanks Vix again for the settings)
Right click on the area of your tube that you want to clone. You will see an outline around the area with an x in the middle. Go back to your tag. Make sure you are on the blank new layer under the frame. Left click and it will place the area that you cloned. You can left click multiple times if you wish to make the image darker. This part is completely up to you.
Add a drop shadow to the frame. Merge the frame and tube together. Image free rotate to the right by 24 degrees. Adjust sharpen. Move under your main tube and place near the top so you can see the framed image from behind the tube.
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 your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and re-size if you wish.
Save your tag.
