Items you will need to complete this project:
The Summer Breeze taggers kit by Gothic Inspirations. This is a PTU kit which is currently available as part of the Summer Breeze collab at Scraps with Attitude.
Tube of choice. I am using psp15906-PlatinumPirate by Celine. You must have a license to use this tube, which may be purchased at My PSP Tubes.com.
Wee Scots Lass mask #340 which you can download HERE.
Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Georia which is a windows system font, and the 100 Days alpha from Shel-Belle Scraps.
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.
To begin, open a new raster layer canvas 800 x 800 pixels, flood filled white.
Open Paper14-GI_SummerBreeze. Layers --> Load/Save Mask --> Load Mask from Disk and locate Wee Scots Mask 340. Make sure the fit to canvas button is checked, then click on load.
Copy merged and add to main canvas, centered.
Open Sun-GI_SummerBreeze and add to main canvas, centered at H200, V200.
Open Netting-GI_SummerBreeze, copy and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V500.
Open Parrots-GI_SummerBreeze and add to main canvas centered at H450, V275.
Open Trees-GI_SummerBreeze. Resize to 85% and mirror. Add to main canvas, centered at H550, V400.
Open psp15906-SCCeline-PlatinumPirate, and copy the Layer1, and add to main canvas, centered.
Open Bow2-GI_SummerBreeze, resize to 85% and add to main canvas, centered at H400, V660.
Using your eraser tool, erase the parts of the tree and netting that fall below the bow.
Add a drop shadow of choice to the tube layer (Raster 6). I am using offsets, vertical and horizontal of 8 each, opacity of 85, blur of 35, color dark brown (#34200a).
Using your eraser tool, erase the parts of the tube and the drop shadow what fall below the bow.
On the materials pallet, set your foreground color to transparent and your background color to black #000000. Using font of choice, add copyright information to the tag.
For the Paltinum Pirate tube, that information is: (c)Celine http://celinart-pinup.blogspot.com Your-MTPLicense_#
I am using Georgia, 4 points, bold and centered and have the information located at H400, V75.
You can now save the artist's copy of your tag as a .pspimage file.
Using font or alpha of choice, add desired name to tag. I am using the 100 Days alpha by Shel-Belle Scraps which was a FTU Full Size alpha I have scripted down for use in tagging. I have further resized it by 75%, and added it to the canvas, centered at H500, V650. Actual location will vary depending upon size and length of name.
You may now drop the white background layer, and merge visible. Resize to 75% (600 x 600 pixels) and save your tag as a .png file, and you are all done!
