Any mask of your choosing

Template # 427 by Millie's PSP Madness 


Any color or gradient and font of your choosing



Okay, let's begin. The first thing you want to do is open the template #427 by Millie's PSP Madness. Then, let's create our mask. Open whatever mask you choose to use; I have chosen a mask  made by Souldesigner. Okay, in Paint Shop Pro (PSP) click FILE>OPEN>and open the mask you have chosen, then start a new image FILE>NEW>700x700 and transparent needs to be checked.  Choose color or gradient on the right side layers menu; I chose a dark pink 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 and moving it around until you are happy with its position. 

***(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.)*** 


The next thing we want to do is to start adding our elements to make this tag come to life!! First, we need to put our papers on our template. The papers should be as follows: paper 29 on raster 1, paper 25 on raster 3, paper 10 on rasters 2 and 7, paper 28 on raster 5, paper 20 on rasters 6 and 8, and paper 9 on the winter word art.  

Next, find  and open the Snowgirl tube by Alex_Prihodko...choose group 2 with the darker hair...copy and paster her to the tag, reduce her by 40% and place her on the left side of the tag. go back to the original and erase everything from the top of her chest down; copy and paste it to the tag and flip it horizontally...size to fit top square, erasing any extras...duplicate and flip it horizontally and fit to bottom square. Use the effects menu and make both black and white, and then use a pink filter on them. 

Next, find and open the el 129 the box with snow at the top and ribbon on the handle and reduce the size by 85% and place center bottom, to the right of the tube. Next, find and open the el 169 the sparkle balls on the stem and leaving the size as is, place it behind raster 5 at the top center. Next, find and open the el 79 flower and reduce it by 80%, and place it on the bottom right-hand corner, in the forefront. Next, find and open the el 52 butterfly and reduce it by 95% and place it angled on the top right corner. Next, find and open the el 156 the polka dot candy and reduce it by 95% and place it angled on the corner of the bottom right flower. Next, find and open the el 117 the sparkle beads, and reduce them by 60%, and place them on raster 5, moving them up a bit. 

Next, find and open the el 147 the striped mitten and reduce it by 95% and place it angled on the bottom right of the box. Next, find and open the el 90 the bells with the bow and reduce it by 95%, and place to the right of the mitten. Next, find and open the el 35 the candle and reduce it by 90% and place it at the bottom, between, and behind the bells and the candy. Next, find and open the el 161 the stocking and reduce it by 85% and place it at the bottom behind the bells and mitten, flip it horizontally. Next, find and open the el 100 the frozen grapes and reduce it by 95% and place them on the bottom left of the box at an angle. Next, find and open the el 131 flower and reduce it by 90% and place it in the top left corner of the bottom square. next, find and open the el 15 the special selection bottle and reduce it by 95% and place it between the grapes and the mitten. Finally, find and open the el 3 the beads on a hanging string, and leaving the size as is, place it on the right side of the tag, and move them upwards until you like where they are. 


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.

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 # 407 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 yellow dual-toned gradient....flood fill the new blank image with the color or gradient..the flood fill is the paint bucket shape.

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 6 on raster 2, paper 2 on rasters 1 and 3, paper 1 on raster 4, and paper 4 on rasters 5 and 6. 

The next thing we want to do is to start adding our elements to make this tag come to life!!

Next, find and open the Jack 2 poser and reduce him by 10% and place it on the left side.

Next, find and open the eyeball 1 and reduce it by 85% and place in the bottom right corner.

***(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.)*** 


The next thing we want to do is to start adding our elements to make this tag come to life!! First, we need to put our papers on our template. The papers should be as follows: paper 3 on raster 1, paper 2 on raster 2, paper 1 on rasters 3 and 4, paper 4 on raster 5, and paper 7 on rasters 7 and 8. 

Next, find  and open the Sparrow poser tube, leaving her in the blue shirt...copy and paste her to the tag, reduce her size by 60% and center her on the tag. Go back to the original and erase/cut all but her face...copy and paste it to the tag...flip it horizontally and reduce it by 70% so it fits to the left of the poser...duplicate and flip horizontally and place on the right...make both sepia toned. 

Next, find and open the el 48 the screen, and leaving the size as is, place it on top of raster 2. Next, find and open the el 10 the burgundy ribbon and bow and reduce it by 60% and place it on the top left above the screen layer; duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place it on the top right. Next, find and open the el 4 the white flower and reduce it by 90% and place on top of the burgundy bows. Next, find and open the  el 3 the brown flower and reduce it by 95% and center it on the white flowers. Next, find and open el 8 the blue butterfly and reduce it by 95% and place centered in the left top brown flower; duplicate and flip it horizontally and place in the right flower. Next, find and open the burgundy stone and reduce by 98% and place in the center of both butterflies. 


Next, find and open the el 23 the blue frame and reduce it to fit the square area behind the small close up on the left..duplicate and place on the right..make sure the closeups are in the forefront, not the frame. Next, find and open the el 46 the small fence piece and reduce it by 80% and place it on the bottom left; duplicate it and flip it horizontally and connect the 2...repeat on the other side...make sure they are behind the tube. Next find and open the el 19 the grass and place it on the bottom left in front of the fence...duplicate it...duplicate again and flip it horizontally..duplicate again; repeat process on the bottom right. 

Next, find and open the el 44 the tree and reduce it by 85% and place on the bottom left, in front of the fence and grass; duplicate and flip it horizontally and place it on the bottom right. next, find and open the el 32 the hand print and reduce it by 80% and place it in the bottom right corner; duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place on the bottom left. Next, find and open the el 20 chained hearts and reduce it by 90% and place on the right bottom corner of the right close up; duplicate and flip it horizontally and place on the left side. Next, find and open the el 36 the sunglasses and reduce them by 95% and place them like they are hanging from the poser's hands. 

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 me at robynebutts@gmail.com, so I can place it on my blog.

Hugs and blessings,
Robyne
