"Blue Beauty Tutorial"

"Blue Beauty"
This Tutorial was created and written by me using Psp9.
If there is another tutorial similar to this tut online, it's purely coincidence.
You will need Psp9 or higher. You must have a good knowledge working with masks.
You must also have a good knowledge working with Psp tools.
"Supplies Needed"
Scrap Kit "Blue Heaven" by FantasyMoments-Scraps. Here
Wsl_Mask61 or a similar mask will work very well with this tutorial. Here
Tube of choice, Font of choice.
I am using the artwork of ©Ismael Rac. You may purchase a License. Here
Please Do Not use the same tube as me without a proer license.
"Let's Go"
1. Open a blank 600x600 canvas and floodfill with white.
2. Open the Wsl_Mask61 or a mask that you would like to use and minimize in Psp.
We will get back to the mask in a few minutes. Now copy and paste a paper of choice
Onto the canvas. Open your mask and apply. Duplicate the mask layer and on the original
Go to adjust, blur, gaussian blur of 25%, click ok. Hide the white background.
And merge the two mask layers visible. Unhide the white background.
3. Copy and paste element 41 from the kit and resize 2-3x's. Place it to the top left.
Add a drop shadow. Duplicate, image, mirror. Duplicate again, image, flip, image mirror.
Do Not merge them visible. You may move them outwards to your liking.
4. Copy and paste element 33, resize it 2-3x's. Place it to the top middle. Drop shadow.
Layers, duplicate, image flip. Layers duplicate, image mirror, Place this layer in the middle
Using your mover tool. Layers duplicate, image mirror. You may have to move them outwards
A little bit. Add a drop shadow, sharpen if needed.
5. Now we are going to make a circle frame. In the layer pallette, set the top color box
In a paper pattern from the scrap kit. Background color box is null. With your
eclipse tool, width-size 10, holding down the shift key, draw out a large circle making
Sure to not go over the mask layer. We want the circle to fit nicely.
Add a drop shadow to the circle frame. With the magic wand tool, click inside the circle.
Copy and paste a paper of choice, Selections invert, hit delete, select none.
Move the paper layer below the circle frame we just made. Drop shadow.
Highlight the paper layer, Selections all, float, defloat, Copy and paste element 25.
Place it in the middle of the paper layer, Selections invert, hit delete, select none.
Add a drop shadow. Sharpen if needed.
6. Open a new canvas, any size. Copy and paste element 45 and resize it small.
With your selection tool set on rectangle, Settings on replace mode, Feather=0, Anti-Alias checked, carefully draw around one of the beads being careful not to go over it.
We don't want overlapping of the other beads on the selection.
7. Go to edit, copy, paste it as a new layer onto your tag. Duplicate the bead and place.
Around the circle frame, Hide all layers except for all the bead layers, merge visible.
Add a drop shadow to the beads layer and sharpen if needed.
8. Highlight the paper layer. Now depending on whether you want the tube positioned in the middle of the paper layer or having her come out of the frame. See my tag.
To have her positioned inside the circle, this is what you should do. Go to selections
All, float, defloat, position tube inside the circle, Selections invert, hit delete. Select none.
This removes all the excess tube that sticks out of the frame and paper layer.
9. If you want the tube looking like she is coming out of the frame, Just move her up.
See my tag. Add a drop shadow to the tube.
10. Now copy and paste flowers of your choice, Resize them to your liking.
Place them on the bottom of your tag. Add drop shadows. See my tag for placement.
11. Copy and paste different flowers of your choice, Resize them to your liking.
Place them on the top left side. See my tag for placement. Add drop shadows to them.
12. Now on my tag, I placed flowers behind her head because there was a space there.
So I decided to put flowers there. I thought it looked better since I couldn't use a bow there.
13. Copy and paste the butterflies of your choice, Resize them small, Place them
On each side of your tag and angle the butterflies slightly. Add drop shadows to them.
14. Copy and paste a flower, Resize it and place it to the top right side. Add drop shadow.
Copy and paste a bow of your choice, Resize it to your liking and place it on top of flower.
Add a drop shadow to the bow.
15. Copy and paste element 45, Resize it small and place it on one of the flowers
Making it a different color from the flower. Add a drop shadow, Sharpen if needed.
Repeat the same step for the other flower. Repeat the same step for the flowers
On the bottom middle of your tag.
16. Add your name in font of choice, Add a drop shadow, sharpen if needed.
17. Add all artist copyright info and your watermark.
"All Done".
