What you will need:


Paint Shop Pro - I used PSP X2 but any version will do.

Scrap Kit used - As Times Goes By from our wonderful Alison from Hungry Hill. You can get it Here.

I used the gorgeous artwork by Dominic Marco.  You will  need a license to be able to use these images.  Please don't use his artwork without a license. You can purchase the image Here.

Music Princess

  

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

You will need:

Paint Shop Pro - I used PSP X2 but any version will do.
Scrap Kit used - FTU Music Princess Mini Kit. You can get it Here.
I used the gorgeous artwork by Ismael Rac.  You will  need a license to be able to use these images.  Please dont use his artwork without a license. You can purchase the image Here.
Mask of choice. I used Vix Mask 42. It can be found Here
Filers used - Eye Candy Impact - Glass and Gradient Glow.

Lets Get Started:

Remember to save your tag often.

Open an image 550 x 550 background transparent.

Select one of the papers to use for your mask.  I used MP_pp5_CCO.  Copy your paper to your image and reduce in size by 50%.  Go to Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load Mask from Disk - Select the mask you need for your tag.
Select Load and merge group.

Select your star element and copy and paste to your background and resize by 85%

Select your Rectangle Tool and draw out a rectangle to a size so that you can make a speaker box for the speaker elements.

Duplicate the box and hide the fill layer. Go to Layers - Convert to Raster Layer. With your Magic Wand tool, click on the frame colour and select. Eye Candy - Impact - Glass



Merge the two layers so that the speakers look realistic.  Add the speakers to the box and reduce one so that it can sit above the bottom one.


Position your speaker on your tag and copy and reduce if you desire.

I then added the film strip element and then posted a tube in different positions and posed different parts of her body in the strip.  I used the same tube and just erased the parts I didnt want to show with the Eraser tool.

Once I had them as I liked, I then grabbed my selection tool and highlighted just inside the black frame and  added a new raster layer while the frame was still selected. Moved it below the tubes and then grabbed my flood fill tool and filled the selection with this new colour.

Go to Effects - Texture Effects - Weave (With the following settings)




Place your feature tubes on your tag and position as desired, then add a drop shadow to them. V2, H-2, O50, B2.

Add your copyright © to your tag and then add your name.
Save your tag as either a PNG or JPG.
You are now finished making your tag.
I hope you enjoyed doing my tutorial.

Dark Vs Light


I wrote this tutorial for those who have a working knowlege of Paint Shop Pro for those with an intermediate level of understanding.

You Will Need:

Paint Shop Pro (PSP) - I used PSPXII but an earlier version will work just as well.

Gorgeous artwork by René Kunert.  Although you cannot purchase her art in a store, her art is available at her Forum which can be found HERE.  Tubes by René are only available as a gift after donating towards her forum.  You will need a licence for her artwork and this can be obtained from René when you receive your gift.

I used the fantastic Scrap kit by CBJ and can be purchased HERE

Font used was Brush Script Std, you can get it HERE

Lets Get Started:

First off open a new image 500 x 500 with a transparent background.

Then open the elements you wish to use in your tag.

I didnt use a mask for this tag as the elements used were enough.  I used the splatter as the base for my tag. Then placed the flowers on a 25% angle to the left.  Then I placed the leaves on the right side to offset the flowers on the other side.

I then placed the frame on my tag reduced by 60% applied a drop shadow of O2, H-2, O50, B2.

Once you have your tag how you like it, I copied Paper 15 onto the tag and placed behind the frame. Selected my Selection tool, Rectangle, Add, Anti-Alias on.  

Highlight the paper layer in your layers, draw out a rectangle just a little bigger than the inside of the frame and then select Selections - Invert - Delete.

Once you have the inside of your frame closed with the paper of your choice, take your tube and paste to the frame where you like.  I placed the tube under the frame and then used my eraser tool to carefully erase the layers that covered the frame elements on the tube.  Or you can duplicate your tube, placing one above the frame layer and one below and erase where you need to on the top layer so it looks perfect.

Once your tube is right, add a couple more elements to make your tag look complete.

Add your copyright © to your tag and then add your name.

Save your tag as either a PNG or JPG.

You are now finished making your tag.

I hope you enjoyed doing my tutorial.

Scrap Kit - I used the gorgeous kit by Hungry Hill called Pearl of the Carribean. You can find it HERE.

Mask of Choice - The mask was provided in the kit, but any will do.
Font of Choice - I used Booter which is a free font and can be found HERE.

2. Open your kit and select the mask provided.  Copy and paste into your canvas and reduce by 85% Reduce Opacity to 70%

4. Place your tube on your tag and give it a slight shadow. As used on the elements Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow - V1, H-1, B50, O 2, colour Black.

5. Now add your copyright © on your tag.

6. Add your name to your tag in a colour that is complimentary to your tube. I used Black with an outline of white set at 1.00 and added a drop shadow of Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow - V2, H-2, B50, O 2, colour Black.

7. Save your tag as either a PNG or JPG and you are done.

Here is another version of the same tag with a different artist.  I used Lady Mishka for this tag.  You can find this at Pics For Design (PFD)
