Still life in Pink

Still Life in Pink
Hi my name is
Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn
I'm still kind of new to writing tutorials.
If you have any hints for me please share them.
No copy rights intended here, this is just
for fun and as a learning tool.


Graphic of choice
PSP I'm using 9 for this tutorial.

Plug ins

Supplies I used HERE

Find the graphic you want to use.
Duplicate it and close the original.
If to large re size it to your liking.
This is the one I used.

Pick a color for your background.....#932b40
Also pick one for your foreground........#b0686d
these are the colors I will be using.

Hint.........if at any point you don't like what you see or do, remember
edit undo is your best friend in psp and you won't need to start over.

1. Add a border of 2 pixel any color besides what is in your graphic.
Click on it and flood fill tool, and fill with the gold bead pattern, or one of your choice.
Angle 0
Size 80
Keep selected and go to selection and invert.

2. Now to effects 3D cutouts with these settings.

Now reapply but change the vertical, and horizontal to -5
Select none.

3. Add another border of 2 using your foreground color

...there you will see the background, and foreground colors you have picked,
so no need to go back and forth to your color pallet.

4. Add another border of 2 using your background color.

selection and none.........magic wand and click on the white and flood fill with
your back ground color keep selected.

9. Filter graphic plus quick tile 1~~~Settings 188, 142, 119
can play until you get something you like.
Then apply, go back and apply once more using the default settings.
Can add a bevel if you wish........I didn't this time. Then selection and none.

10 Add another border 3 pixel make it a color that is different from the rest so it will not bleed thru.
Then magic wand and select this border and flood fill with the gold pattern.

11. Add another border of 2 using your foreground color.

12. Add another border of using your background color, then magic wand and select this border.

13. Add a inner bevel

If happy with what you see select none.

14. Add another border of 3 and select and flood fill with the gold, invert
and add your cut out once again.......5, 50, 5, keep selected and repeat but
change the vert, and horz. to - 5 then deselect.

15. Add another border of 1 background color.
