Mask #84 from Wee Scott Lass

Template #308 by Millie's PSP Madness

Any color or gradient and font of your choosing



Okay, let's begin. The first thing you will need to do, is to open the Template # 408 by Millie's PSP Madness. Next, let's create our mask. I have chosen a mask #84 from Wee Scott Lass. Okay, in Paint Shop Pro (PSP) click FILE>OPEN>and open the 1st 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 purple and teal dual toned 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! :)  Just copy and paste it to the tag, and increase the size by 10%...move it around until you are happy with the amount that shows.  

***(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.)*** 

Now, let's add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag! The first thing we want to do, is place papers on parts of our template. The following is where your papers should be: cloudy paper plain on rasters 1 and 2, smudged paper on rasters 3 and 4, flake paper on rasters 5 and 6, and christmas tree paper on raster 7.   

The next thing we want to do is to start adding our elements to make this tag come to life!! The very first thing we will want to do is to add our fairy poser. Find and open the #2 Kayla Fairy poser and reduce her size by 8% and place her on the bottom, centered...decrease the size of the word art and move it to the right of the poser. Next, find and open the El # 4 and leaving the size as is, place it on the bottom right...duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the bottom left. (You can keep duplicating these to make them appear darker if desired). Next, find and open the candle wreath and reduce it by 90% and place it in the bottom left corner, in the forefront. 

Next, find  and open the metal flower blue and reduce it by 80% and place it in the top left corner. Next, find and open the teal feather and reduce it by 95% and place it angled on the bottom left of the candle...duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the bottom right of the candle. Next, find and open the teal satin bow and reduce it by 90% and place it angled on the top right corner. Next, find and open the green brad and reduce it by 90% and place it in the center of the bow on the top right. 

Next, find and open the doodle and reduce it by 10% and place it angled center top on the left right above the poser's head...duplicate it and place center right. Next, find and open the teal brad and reduce it by 95% and place one in the center of each of the doodles. Next, find and open the ribbon flower green and reduce it by 80% and place on top left side.

Next, find and open the el 2 doodle and leaving the size as is, place it above the poser's head...duplicate it and flip it horizontally. Next, find and open the metal flower green and reduce it by 90% and place it on the right side below the bow. Next, find and open the satin bow and reduce it by 85% and place it at the bottom of the candle, in the forefront...duplicate and flip it horizontally. Next, find and open the teal brad and reduce it by 97% and center it on the bow.


Lastly, add 3D drop shadows wherever you would like them to be.  Make sure at this point that you add the copyright information (VERY IMPORTANT)!!

You did it! You now have finished this tag. 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.

Mask #38 from Wee Scott Lass

Template # 187 from Addictive Templates

Any color or gradient and font of your choosing



Okay, let's begin. The first thing you will need to do, is to open the template #187 by Addictive Templates. Next, let's create our mask. I have chosen a mask # 38 from Wee Scott Lass. Okay, in Paint Shop Pro (PSP) click FILE>OPEN>and open the 1st 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 dual toned brown 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! :)  Just copy and paste it to the tag, increasing the size by 30% and place it centered on the tag...make sure the mask is on the very back layer. 

***(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.)*** 

Now, let's add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag! The first thing we want to do, is place papers on parts of our template. The following is where your papers should be. Paper # 10 on raster 5, paper # 5 on rasters 2 and 4, paper # 6 on rasters 1, 2, 3, and 7, paper # 7 on raster 10, paper # 8 on raster 6, paper # 3 on raster 8, paper # 4 on raster 9, and paper # 9 on raster 11. The next thing we want to do is to add our tube images. Find and open the full view of the Blue Sugar Skull poser tube and decrease her size by 65% and place her on the left side of the tag, in the forefront. Next, erase all but the head of the poser and reduce it by 50% and place it in the top circle on the right side...duplicate and reduce by 25% more...flip it horizontally, and place in the bottom left circle. Use the effects menu and illuminate with lights the top right one; use the effects menu and make this bottom one canvas fine. 

Next, find the print #4 and leaving the size as is, place it in the top left...duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the right, on top of the mask layer. Next, find and open the print #1 and reduce it by 45% and place it on the top left on the layer behind the tube. Next, find and open the swirl #1 and reduce it by 45% and place it at the top right, behind the circle pic.

Next, find and open the bow # 2 and reduce it by 40% and place on the the right corner, in the forefront.

Next, find and open the sugar skull 3 and reduce it by 90% and place it on the bottom left. Next, find and open the flower #2 and reduce it by 95% and place on the bottom left, slightly behind skull 3.
