Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated
And see my finished tag for placement
*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits Words, Word Backing, Blue Strip, White Strip and Blue rectangle,canvas Size 650x600 and floodfill the background with white, we can resize later i just like to have enough room to work.
Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 5 c/p into selection, Open tube copy and somewhere on the PSP workspace and paste as a new image, c/p arrange and invert/delete/deselect duplicate tube Guassian Blur 4.00 and change the blend mode to Soft Light, on the original tube layer change the blend mode to Lumiance(L) and add d/s and delete template layer.
Circle Frame : Add d/s.
Black Rectangle : Select all/float/defloat open paper 1 c/p resize by 75% invert/delete/deselect and delte template layer, add d/s.
White Rectangle : Add d/s.
Frame Backing : Repeat the same steps as you did for the Circle Back, resize tube by 85% and dont mirror the tube.
Square Frame : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 8 c/p into selection/deselect add noise Uniform/55/Monochrome Checked,add d/s and delete template layer.
Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used the following
Flower 3 : 30% duplicate.
Flower 1 : 20% duplicate and place on top of the daisies.
Greenery 1 : 40% duplicate and cluster behind your flowers.
Cluster all your flowers and greenery together merge and duplicate.
Butterfly 2 : 45%
Frame 4 : 30% free rotate/left/30/all layers unchecked
Glitter Spray : 80% filp and move above your white background layer.
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers
Take your wordart and i find its easier to add it as a brush so resize 550x392 and go to File/Export Custom Brush and name it Precious Gift and click OK, now select your brush tool and in the drop down find the brush we just made, add a new layer and choose a color from the pallete that has come with the kit I chose the darker green, and make the size of your brush 300, apply brush tap a few times I tapped 6 times, then add noise Uniform/15/Monochrome Checked, and then a fat white gradient glow with the 3rd tab the same green color, add d/s and position.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize .
Open paper 2 c/p apply mask/merge group resize by 95%.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name in font of choice.
