Select your tube layer and then go to Selections - Invert - Then hit your delete key which will remove any extra parts of the tube you dont want. Move the tube layer below the frame.

Fly Girl


This tutorial was written for those with a working knowledge of PSP
Written for PSP XI (Will work in other versions)

Select your tube, I chose the wonderful artwork from Elias Chatzoudis found My PSP Tubes

Scrap Kit called My Fantasy Scrap Kit from Passionate Scraps. Thanks to Mandy.

I used a mask from Candy's Treats for this tutorial found Here

Filters Used Eye Candy 5 Impact: Gradient Glow
Font of choice. I used Saginaw and Pixelette.


Lets Begin

1. Start by opening up a blank tag 500 x 500 and then flood fill with white. Open your scrap supplies you plan to use for your tag and minimise.

2. Go to Layers - New Raster Layer - Flood fill with a contrasting colour from your tube. Open up your Mask layer and go to Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image -
Select the Mask from the drop down list. Ensure that Invert Mask Data is selected as shown below.


3. On the Layers panel right mouse click on the mask layer and select Merge - Merge Group.

4. Open the tube you plan to use and reduce to size. I reduced mine by 85%. Minimise tube and we will come back to it later.

5. Open your doodles and copy and paste to your tag. Reduce to fit if needed. Place them where you think they will be of the most effect.
Add a drop shadow. O = 3 and H = -3, Opacity 60 and Blur 2 Colour Black.


6. Open your frame you will be using and copy and paste to your image. Resize if needed. Add drop shadow same settings as the doodles.

7. Select a paper from your scrap kit to match the tube or use a contrasting colour and select the circle preset shape. Make sure that the circle is just a little bit bigger than the centre of the frame. Right mouse click on the circle layer and convert to layer. I then wrote the words Fly Girl and duplicated and positioned where I wanted it to show on my paper. Merge your multiple layers so that you only have the one layer showing with the words. Now move these layers below the frame.

8. Open your tube and place between the scrap circle and the frame. Add a drop shadow to the tube as used above.

9. Add your embellishments to the tag as you desire. Adding drop shadow for effect.

10. Add your copyright information to the tag. I used Pixelette font for this. Size 8 Anti Alias off.

11. Now add your name. I set my font size to 72 anti alias Sharp with stroke width at 1.00.
Set your forground colour to a dark shade in your tag and the background colour for a lighter colour used in your tag.

12. Write your name and position where you want it on your tag.
Right mouse click on the layer with your name and convert to raster layer.

13. Next go to your Effects - Plugins - Eyecandy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow - Select the settings as shown below and then select OK.


14. Apply the same settings for the drop shadow to the name.

15. Now go to Layers - Merge - Merge All (Flatten)
Save as a JPG image.

You are finished.

Pretty in Pink

Written for PSP 9 (will work in other versions)

Supplies Needed

Mask of choice, mine was from a resource center which is no longer available.

Remember to save often

to match your tube. I used #a57799 now go to layers, new mask layer, from image and
select the mask, (I used) tp_edge15 from the drop down list. Tick the box to source luminance and invert mask data. In your layers palette delete the mask layer and merge group.

4. Using two colours from your tube, set your foreground colour to another
dark shade on your tube and the background to a lighter shade in your tube.

5. Now select your circle shape and with the line width set to 3 and line style as solid draw out your circle so that it covers a good portion of the tag.

6. Select your tube you are going to use for the tag and go to >Image - Resize - Increase the size so that the image will not be distorted but large enough to fill the circle. I enlarged my image in the second image by 150%.

7. Select your magic tool and select the circle. Go to your tube and copy the tube and paste as a new layer on your tag. Make sure that your tube layer is still active.

8. Go so selections - select Invert then hit your delete button.
Now reduce the opacity of the image.

9. Hide all the other layers in your layer palette other than the circle and the image and then go to Layers - Merge - Visible.

10. Select a dark colour from your tube and type in the lyrics from a song you like. I chose the lyrics from Mary J Blige. Using a font of your choice. I used Pristina font set at size 14.

Don't you get that?
Doesn't matter if
you're going on with
their plan
They'll never be happy
Cause they're not happy
with themselves.

11. Resize your tube to fit onto your tag and place where you would like it.
I resized mine by 85%. Apply drop shadow to the image. Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow - V3 & H-3 - O50 & Blur 8. Make sure that shadow on new layer is unticked.

12. Now add your © copyright information and your name I used Regular font size 48 for my name, using the dark colour for the background colour and contrasting colour for the stroke width set at 2. Apply the same drop shadow to your name. Go to Layers - Merge - Merge all (Flatten) and save as a jpg image.

You are finished.
