Tutorial using the American Pride scrap kit by Kim's Korner, and featuring the Liberty poser by Dazzlin Divas. 

Supplies Needed

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

The American Pride scrap kit, which is available for purchase at The Enchanted Dreams Boutique   HERE

The Liberty poser by Dazzlin Divas, which is available for purchase at the Enchanted Dreams Boutique   HERE

Any mask of your choosing, I chose a mask from VixMasks

Any color or gradient and font 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 Vixmasks.  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 blue 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 #14 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 add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag! Click FILE>OPEN> find the full pose #9 of your Liberty Poser  and open it.  Reduce her size by about 45% and place her centered on the tag. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the fireworks #2  and open it, and then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab, then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Leave the size as is, and place it at the top of the tag, then duplicate and flip it horizontally and place at the bottom of the tag....use the side layers menu to slide the poser to the forefront. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the AP heart and open it, then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab, then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. reduce the size by 80% and place one in each corner...angled...look at tag for exact placement, as sides should be going in opposite directions.   


 Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the bow #6 open it, then and reduce the size by 90%. Place  one angled in the center of each of the 4 hearts in the corners.  Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the bear and reduce the size 80% and place it on the bottom right side of the poser. Duplicate it and flip it horizontally and place it on the bottom left side of the poser. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the star #3 with blue on it and open it, and reduce the size by 80% and place one on the right top side of the bear, and then duplicate it and flip horizontally and add to the top of the bear on the left side.Use the side layers menu and slide the bear back to the forefront.   Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the star #2 and place it on top and to the left of the other star...duplicate and flip it horizontally and add to the right side ...use the side layers menu and slide this star ti the forefront. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the medal and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size by 90% and place it angled on the right bear's foot, and then duplicate and flip it horizontally and add it to the bear on the left; use the side layers menu to make sure the medal is in the forefront. Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the ribbon #3  and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 85% and place it on the upper area of the right side...duplicate and flip vertically and attach the 2...repeat this process on the other side.  Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the bow #7 and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 90% and place  one at the center of where the blue side ribbons meet, on both side of the tag...use the side layers menu to slide the bows to the forefront.  

Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the bee #1 and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 90% and place it in the top right corner at an angle...duplicate and flip it horizontally and place it on the top left side.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the fan and reduce the size by 80% and place one on the left side at and angle, above the bee...duplicate and flip it horizontally and place angled on the other side. Now click FILE>OPEN>find the hat #2 and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 90% and place one hanging on the top point of the stars on both sides.


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



Hugs and blessings,
Robyne
