Addicted 2 Rac tutorial

Addicted 2 Rac

This tutorial was written by Dianna Richards of Digicats (and Dogs)/Di Before Dawn Tutorials. Any resemblance to any other tutorial, published or unpublished, living, dead or undead, is purely coincidental.

Please do not rebroadcast, redistribute or otherwise claim this tutorial or any part there of as your own work.

Items you will need to complete this project:

The Addicted to Rac taggers kit by Crazed's Creations. This is a PTU kit, which currently available as part of the Addicted to Rac collaboration at Just4Taggers.com. You may buy this collaboration outright for $10, or you may get it free with a $10 purchase.

Tube of choice. I am using Bad Barbie by Ismael Rac. You must have a license to use this tube, which is available at artisticmindsinc.com.

Wee Scots Lass mask #225 which you can download HERE.

Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Verdana which is a windows system font, and the Goth Chic alpha by Sarah Bryan. This is a FTU alpha which may be downloaded from Sarah's Blog.

Note that H# and V# refer to Horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas grid. Make sure you have View, Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.

When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise state in the tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X1, but should work in PSP 8 and up.

Open a new raster layers canvas, 800 x 800 pxls, flood filled white.

Open Crazeds_paper11_ATRT. Go to Layers --> Load/Save Mask --> Load Mask from Disk and locate Wee Scots Lass mask #225. Make sure the "Fit to canvas" button is checked, then click on load.

Edit --> Copy Merged and add to main Canvas, centered.

Open Crazeds_doodle3_ATRT and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V200.

Open Crazed_Stars1_ATRT and add to main Canvas, centered at H600, V400. Go to Image --> free rotate --> rotate right, 20 degrees. Duplicate the layer, and mirror.

Open crazeds_frame5_ATRT and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V450.

Open Ismael Rac's Bad Barbie03 and select tube with hair color that appeals to you. Copy and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V450.

Dupilicate the frame layer and drag the duplication over the tube. Set your selection tool to Selection type: Rectangle, Mode: Replace, and select the top half of the duplicated frame. Delete.

Selections --> Section none.

Open Crazeds-starchain1_ATRT and resize to 75%. Add to main canvas centered at H180, V500.

Open Crazed-guitarpick3_ATRT, resize to 75% and add to main canvas, centered at H200, V550.

Open Crazeds_guitar2_ATRT and add to main canvas, centered at H250, V500.

Image --> Free rotate, rotate left, 25 degrees.

On the materials pallet, set your foreground color to transparent, and your background color to very dark purple (#400040). Using font of choice, add the copyright information to the tag. 

For the Bad Barbie tube, that information is (c)Ismael Rac www.xeracx.com Your_AMI_LIcense#

You may now save the artist's version of your tag as a .pspimage file.

Using font or alpha of choice add name of choice to tag. I am using the Goth Chic alpha by Sarah Bryan. I have centered my name at around H450, V580. Actual location will depend upon size and length of name.

Delete the white background layer, and merge visible. Resize to 75% (600 x 600 pxls) and save a .png file and your all done!
