Tutorial using the Live to Ride scrap kit by Kim's Korner.

Supplies Needed

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

The Live to Ride scrap by by Kim's Korner, which can be purchased at The Enchanted Dreams Boutique HERE

Any mask of your choosing; I used a mask from Charmroyal.com

Any color or gradient, and font of your choosing for personalization

FREEBIE cluster frame for you to snag and use. I created this with Kim's Korner's Live to Ride scrap kit. Feel free to snag the frame, but do not claim as your own work...please link back to my blog..TY :)



Okay, let's begin. The first thing you will need to do, is to start an 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 CharmRoyal.com. 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 fills 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 #5 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. Decrease the size to fit. Slide the mask to the layer the paper is on in your side layers menu, so your mask is on top.

Now, let's go ahead and add our poser, as we will be building everything else around her. Okay, click FILE>OPEN> find your biker #4 poser and open her then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.  reduce her size by 50%, and size to fit. Now click FILE>OPEN find the pink chain fence and open it, then click EDIT>COPY> Click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.
