Tutorial using the Dark Souls scrap kit by Waggish Sparkles, and featuring the Wings tube by Zlata_M  

Supplies Needed

Paint Shop Pro - I am  using X5, but any should do


The Dark Souls kit by Waggish Sparkles,  which is available for purchase at Scraps and the City   HERE

The Wings tube by Zlata_M, which is available for purchase at Pics for Design      HERE

Any color or gradient and font of your choosing

Any mask of your choosing

Okay, let's begin. The first thing you will need to do, is to start a new image in Paint Shop Pro (PSP for short). To do this, look at the top left corner, and click on FILE>NEW> a pop up will open...set width and height to 600, make background white, and make sure the transparent box is not checked. Click okay, and you now have a blank size base for your tag, already sized and ready to go.

***(NOTE: there is a layers menu on the right side of your screen..if u do not see it then look up top and click VIEW>PALETTES>LAYERS and it will open up...u use this layer to bring things to the front..say for example u put a shoe on the tag but it went behind a bucket and u want it in front of the bucket...while holding the left click button on your mouse or touch pad down, you would slide the shoe to the layer the bucket is on..it would now be in the front...use this anytime u want to bring something to the forefront.)*** 

I have chosen a mask from the kit, mask #1.  Okay, in Paint Shop Pro (PSP) click FILE>OPEN>and open the mask you have chosen, then start a new image FILE>NEW>600x600 and transparent needs to be checked.  Choose color or gradient on the right side layers menu; I chose a metallic silver gradient...flood fill the new blank image with the color or gradient..the flood fill is the paint bucket shape. Now go to the top layers menu and click NEW MASK LAYER> from image...a pop up opens..click on the title of the mask you chose in the drop down menu. now go back to the side layers menu and click on the square that has the layers combined...right click it then click merge..the merge group..and voila..you have a mask layer now! :) Now, let's add a nice paper to add some color to your tag. To do this, click on FILE>OPEN> find paper #9 and open it, then click on the pick tool on the tool menu on the left (it looks like an arrow)..a white dotted line will surround the paper, now click EDIT>COPY> find the image 1 tab at the top and click on it...you will do this every time to paste new items as you want to keep building on Image 1 (this is your tag), now click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. 


Now, let's add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag!  Now find  the Wings tube by Zlata_M and open her, you will want to hide all the layers that you do not want seen..you want: the girl in full view and the wings...merge the visible layers, and then reduce her size by 65% and center her on the tag.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the Rose #1 and open it, decrease the size by about 80% and place one in each of the 4 corners, making sure the sides go opposite directions.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the chain skull with a flower and open it  and reduce the size by 15% and place it at the top of the tag, use the side layers menu to slide the red roses back to the forefront. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the cat #2 and open it... increase the size by 90% and place it at the right bottom of the tube.  

 Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the font and open it, increase the size by 50% and  center it behind the tube.  Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the  candles #3 and open it...reduce it by 40% and place it centered at the top of the font.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the book #2 and open it, and then  reduce the size by 80% and place it at the right bottom of the font, at an angle.   

 Now find the skull #3 and open it and then, decrease the size by 75% and place  it at the top right of the font, duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the top left of the font; use the side layers menu to slide them to the chain layers so they are in the forefront.    Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the tree #2 and open it, reduce the size by 85% and place it on the top right behind the chain skull, then duplicate and flip it horizontally ..now repeat this process on the top left side. Now open the cross #4 and reduce the size by 90% and place one on each front side of the font. 

  Now find the skull #1 and open it, reduce the size by 90% and place on the bottom left side. Now find the bat #3 and open it,reduce the size by 90% and place  it angled on the right top by the skull, and then duplicate and flip it horizontally and place it on the top left by the skull.   Now find the spider #2 and open it and then, decrease the size by 80% and place  it on the bottom front left of the font, then duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the bottom right of the font.  Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the coffin #1 and open it, reduce the size by 80% and place on the left side towards the bottom and then duplicate and flip it horizontally and place on the right side. Now find the web #1 and open it,  and leave the size as is..place it on the top left, then duplicate and flip it horizontally and place it on the top right. Now use the side layers menu and slide it down until the items are back in front of the webs. 


You did it! You now have finished this tag. You will need to add copy wright info to your tag, as it is the law. Finally, add a name in any font and color of your choosing.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you did, please follow my blog and pass it along to others. If you make a tag using this tutorial, please send it to meat robynebutts@gmail.com, so I can place it on my blog.

Hugs and blessings,
Robyne
