Subtle Autumn

 This tutorial was written for those with a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.


* Paint Shop Pro or similar. I used PSPXII but you should be able to make this tag in earlier versions.

* Tube of choice. I am using the artwork of Anna Marine. You can find her work HERE

* Scrap Kit. I am using the awesome kit Subtle Autumn by Hungry Hill which can be purchased HERE

* Font of choice - I used Tiger Rag LET which you can download it HERE

* Filters used was Eyecandy Gradient Glow (can substitute with a white drop shadow).

* Mask of choice.


1. Open your tube and scrap supplies in PSP. Open your font (by double clicking on it in Windows Explorer) and minimise to use later.

2. Open a new image 500 x 500 with a transparent background.

3. Add a new raster layer. Flood Fill with a Paper from the kit.  I chose Paper-10 for mine.

4. To apply your Mask of choice go to Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load Mask from Disk - Select your mask from the drop down list - Load. 

5.  Right mouse click on the layers palette and Merge Group.

6. Once you have your background set, open your scrap kit and select the elements you wish to use in your tag.  I chose the Tag element to use as the next layer, then applied a drop shadow as shown below.

 7. Place your elements on your tag where you think they look the most appealing and move them around till you are happy with the way it looks.

8. Now add your tube of choice and then add the © to your tag.

9. Add your name to your tag.  You can use a colour of choice for your name or use one of the papers from this fantastic kit. I used Paper-9 for the font.  Open your paper in your PSP and minimise. Now go to your background and fill properties in the colour palette and select pattern.

10. Select the drop down arrow and find your paper you have chosen for your font.  Reduce the scale to 70% and then click on OK.

11. Once you have your name to the size you like, apply the gradient glow filter to make your name stand out. Apply a drop shadow if desired.

12. Save your tag as a png or jpg and you are finished.

Here is another version of the same tag but with a different artist.

I hope you enjoyed doing my tutorial.
