how to use psp/scrapkit/forum style tags

Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using
a tube by Keith Garvey
You can purchase his tubes at
his store

Supplies:
Tube of choice
Scrap of choice.
I am using one called Happy New Year by
Amy Marie. It is also available
at her store.

Open a 600x250 new image.
Open up your tube & scrap
supplies of choice.

Select your magic wand tool.

Click on your new image.
Open a paper of choice.

Copy and paste the paper
as a new layer.
Selections - invert.
Press delete button on
your keyboard.

Open a banner element.
Copy and paste as new layer.
Move to the bottom of the tag.

Move over so it covers
only half of the bottom
of the tag.

On your layer palette in your psp,
right click on this layer.
Duplicate once
& go to Image menu - mirror.

This way it covers along the
bottom of the whole tag.
Select none.

Using your move tool,
position your tube where
you would like it on your tag.


Open a drink element.
Image -Menu tab

Copy and paste the drink
element as a new layer.

Now click on your tag image. You should have a
text box pop up to type out the artist
copyright information in.


To do the copyright symbol ©
Hold down Alt button & press the

Move the color layer to above the image layer
in your layer palette.

Click the color layer with your magic wand
tool. Selections menu - modify -expand by 5.
Press delete button on keyboard.

Select your text tool again.
This time you only need the artist name
& license for the copyright. Avatars only
requrie that much due to size.

Convert your text to raster.
Merge layers visible.

Add whatever name you perfer on your
tag sets with a font of choice.
Save both the tag & avatar as png
or jpeg - whichever method you perfer.

This tutorial was written
by Sarah Fiack on
December 5th, 2013
Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using 1 tube by Anna Marine.
This tube is available at
CDO


I am also using the PTU scrap Mythic
by Hungry Hill which is also available
at CDO.

Moonbeams & Spiderwebs Mask
MB and SW Mask 19 which you can find
Here


Open a 700x700 new image.
Open up your tube and scrap
supplies.

Open a doodle element.
Resize 70%.
Paste as a new layer onto your tag.

Open a leaf branch. Resize 80%
Paste below your doodle layer.
Take your eraser tool & erase
part of the branch sticking out
at the bottom.

Open a flower bead cluster element.
Resize 60%.
Paste as a new layer at the bottom of
the doodle & branch.

Copy and paste your tube as
a new layer onto your tag.
Move your tube layer to below
the previous layers except for the
leaf branch element.
You want that one below the tube layer.

Open a 2nd branch element.
Resize 60%. Paste as new layer
above the 1st branch layer. I chose a branch
that goes behind my tube directionwise.

Drop shadow your tube, cluster and doodle layers.
2,2,50,5 black.

Open a castle tower element.

Resize 50%.
Paste near the bottom of the
tag. Move this layer to in front
of the castle tower but keep
near the bottom of the tag still.
Duplicate once. Move this layer
so the shrubs are side by side.
You want the shrubs peeking
out on either side of the tag.

Open a deer element.
Resize 50%.Position on the right side
of the tag. You want the deer layer
on a layer above the shrub layers.
Have the deer appear
to be coming out of the plants
and on or over the shrub.
Also drop shadow the deer layer
as well.

Choose your font tool & a font of
choice to fit your tag.
On your Materials palette,
choose two colors from your tag.
On your tool options, set stroke to 1.0
Type out text of choice.
I used " Tower Walk."
But you can change it for your tag.

Convert to raster once you are
happy with the text and size.
Add the earlier drop shadow to the
text layer as well.


Paste a paper of choice as a
new layer - making sure it is
the bottom layer of the tag.
