Special Times

Tutorial by Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn
I do these tutorials for fun and not
for any profit. I use them also as a learning tool to
help others learn the fun and art of paint shop pro.
All things I use are collected, the only thing I claim
Is the tags I make with these as my work.
Feel free to share my tutorials, but link them back
to my site please.
My tutorials are written with the idea that you have
some knowledge of PSP.
Remember to save often in case your psp closes.
I did this in PSP 9 but sure you can
do it with other versions.
Graphic of choice
Tubes for accents
Font of choice>I use Brock Script>In supplies
Mask of choice
Presets for eye candy in supplies.
Double click on the preset icons in the supplies
and they will install for you.
 Plug ins
Carolaine and Sensibility HERE
Xenofex 2 HERE
Eye candy 5 Impact HERE
xero (optional) HERE
 Settings are the same except when mentioned.
Open your supplies and minimize them in psp

Open Template and duplicate, close the original.

Layers in my template

 We will start with Rectangle 1
Magic wand and select on the brown part

Flood fill with a color of choice.
 Eye candy Alien skins Xenofex 2>crumple
 Keep Selected
Add eye candy 5 Impact glass>pre set
Or this is the settings I used.
Layers>Merge down

In layer pallet highlight frame 1
flood fill with color you want your frames to be.
If you installed the preset this is what you look for

If not the settings I used are below change the color of the
glass to your liking.

High light the large rectangle and flood fill with color of choice.
Effects plug in Carolaine and Sensibility>CL-LDots>repeat if you want it to stand out more.
Give this the same glass as we give the other rectangle.
Highlight Circle>Select in side the frame>selection>modify>expand by 3
Open graphic of choice>copy and paste into selection.
Effects>plug in Xero Porcelain/XL I used default settings.
Highlight the circle frame, and flood fill with color of choice.
Add same glass effect you added to the other frame.
If your not adding any thing else in the frame you can merge down.
Highlight small rectangle 1 Flood fill with color of choice.

I gave this one the Caroline and Sensibility CL-texture
Give it the same glass effect and earlier
Highlight the small frame 1 and flood fill it with color of choice
Give it the glass effect


Merge down
High light small rectangle 2>flood fill with color>Effect texture of choice
I gave mine the Caroline and Sensibility CL-Dots>give eye candy glass effect


Highlight the rectangle 2 frame>flood fill and give it the glass effect as before.

Layers merge down
High light small rectangle 3>flood fill with color>Effect texture of choice.
I gave mine the crumple effect same as before.

Eye candy glass effect same as before.

Highlight small rectangle frame 3>flood fill>glass effect

Merge down.
This is where I am right now.

You can take your mover tool and move your rectangles how you want them.
It's all up to you.
 We are now ready to add our accents and tubes of choice.
Add the ivy if you wish>Place at the top, of the small rectangles>duplicate and with mover tool arrange
how you want it. When your pleased with how it looks merge them together>
Add a drop shadow
I added the little dachshund and resized by 50 percent>place at the top
of the ivy see my sample or place where you want him.

Add drop shadow

Next I added to the right the 2 dachshunds and resize to 50 percent>place how
you want them.
Add drop shadow

I also place some of the ivy behind them.
With easer tool get rid of what you don't want.
Next I added my text>you can do it how you want it.
I have put in the supplies the one I made and used....Its all up to you.

I used my deform tool to make some of the rectangles the way I wanted them.

If you have every thing on there and are happy with your tag>then merge all layers.

Add a new raster layer>flood fill with the color you want your mask
Arrange and send to bottom>I used a mask called warped>it is in
the supplies, but if you have one you like better feel free to use that.

Add Mask>merge group>I gave mine the crumple effect>then
changed the Opacity to 60
Merge all
Add your water mark
Add your name or any thing else you wish to.
Crop any extra you don't want on the tag, and your ready to save your

wonderful work of art.
Would love to see what you do with this.

something new.
