Tutorial using the June Birthstone scrap kit by BLT Dezignz, and featuring a poser by Lisa K  

Supplies Needed

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

The June Birthstone Scrap kit by BLT Dezignz, which can be purchased at Scrappin Dollars   HERE


Any mask of your choosing, I chose a mask from VIX-Masks

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 VIX-Masks.  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 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 #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 cookie 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 75% and place her centered on the tag.  Now click on the bow #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 85% and place in the top left corner, and then duplicate and flip it horizontally...then repeat these steps for the other 3 corners.  

Now, let's add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag! Click FILE>OPEN> find the chair and open it , reduce the size by 70% and place on the left of the tag.   Now click FILE>OPEN> find the cat and open it, then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab, then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.  Reduce the size by 85% and place it in the chair. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the bird cage 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 it at the top right of the tag.   

 Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the pearl circle frame and open it, then click EDIT>COPY>click on the Image 1 tab again then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size by about 80% and then place it centered behind the poser...slide the cage and the chair back to the forefront. Okay, click FILE>OPEN>find the swirl and open it and then click EDIT>COPY>click on the image 1 tab and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.

 Now click FILE>OPEN> find the cameo and open it then click on EDIT>COPY> click on the image 1 tab again and then click on EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce its size by 85% and place one hanging from each of the 2 top bows.  Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the bubbles and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Leave the size as is and place on the tag in quarters...top quarter..next quarter...and so on.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the perfume bottles 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 80% and then place it on the bottom right corner.    

Now click FILE>OPEN> find the dragonfly and open it then click on EDIT>COPY> click on the image 1 tab again and then click on EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce its size by 85% and place it on the bird cage.  Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the deco #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 85% and place one on each side, centered.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the flower #6 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 then place it above the perfume and then slide the perfume to the forefront.        

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,
