This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP. 

SUPPLIES

I used the "Flower Fairy" tube from VeryMany.  You can purchase that tube at PicsforDesign; please do NOT use any PTU tubes without the proper license.

:|: Kit :|:
I am using the fantastic kit "Boy Meets Girl" created by Designs By Sarah.  This kit can be purchased at PimpMyTagswithScraps.

:|: Plugins :|:
EyeCandy4000-Gradient Glow
EyeCandy4000-Glass

:|: Fonts :|:

:|: Elements :|:
sb_pmt_boy-meets-girl_bow 1
sb_pmt_boy-meets-girl_button 1
sb_pmt_boy-meets-girl_button 2
sb_pmt_boy-meets-girl_flower 1

:|: Papers :|:
sb_pmt_boy-meets-girl_pp4

Lets get started!  Begin a new project (700x700-transparent), open your frame, copy/paste & resize/sharpen as preferred.  Next grab your magic wand and click inside the frame - Selections - Expand (expand by 5).  Open your paper, copy/paste, resize/sharpen - Selections - Invert and hit delete to delete the excess paper outside the frame.  Move the paper layer below the frame layer.  Open the heart line, resize/sharpen.  Activate the paper layer - Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat - Invert.  Activate the heart line layer & hit delete on your keyboard to delete excess line.  Apply the glass effect using the following settings:


Position below the top of the frame towhere some is poking out (use my tag as an example of placement), duplicate and position that one at the bottom to match the top.  Next open up the rest of the elements (on the bow I deleted everything but the ribbon in the center attaching the two bows), resize/sharpen as preferred and arrange to your liking (use my example for reference).  Now open your tube, copy/paste & resize to your liking and position just below all the elements, erasing any leftover foot peeking out at the bottom.

Apply dropshadow to all layers except paper layer.  Add name (I did Guitar On Stage in ALL CAPS then did the same name using Carpenter Script above the CAPS name layer) and all copyrights then you're done!  No mask for this one.  If you make this tag, please send me a copy to display on my blog!!

PTU Tutorial "SteamPunk Princess"

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies Needed:

:|: Tube :|:  
I am using a fab tube from VeryMany.  You can purchase this tube at PicsforDesign.  Do NOT use VeryMany's tubes without the proper license!

:|: Kit :|:
 Steampunk Dreams by Designs By Sarah.  You can purchase this kit at PimpMyTagsWithScraps.  Please do NOT share this kit.

:|: Font :|:
Penshurst & Victor's Pixel Font (both are FTU and can be found at dafont)

:|: Plugins :|:
EyeCandy4000-GradientGlow, EyeCandy4000-Glass

:|: Mask :|:I used a mask from weescottslass; download WSL_236.

:|: Elements :|:
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-frame 3
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-eyelet 1
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-butterfly
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-beads 1
 sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-flower 1
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-flower 2
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-greenery 2
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-leaves 1

:|: Papers :|:
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-pp2
sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-pp1

Lets get started!!  Open a new project; copy and paste sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-frame 3, resize/sharpen as preferred.  Open sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-pp2, Layers -> Load/Save Mask -> Load Mask From Disk and choose WSL_236.  Merge group, resize & sharpen as preferred or so that only a little bit of the mask peeks out behind the frame.

Open sb_pmt_steampunk-dreams-pp1, use your magic wand click inside the frame, expand by 3, invert.  Activate paper layer and hit delete on the keyboard twice.  Now open up all other elements except the beads, resize/sharpen as preferred and arrange like my example or however you like them.  I mirrored everything so they were equal on both sides.  

Open up the beads, resize/sharpen and place above paper layer but below frame layer. Duplicate as many times as needed so they cover the paper evenly.  Then add the tube below the frame layer.  Use your eraser tool to erase any excess tube below the flower arrangement.  Activate your frame layer and zoom 200% to see the outlines better.  Erase the frame that overlaps her face (I kept her ponytail behind the frame cause I think it looks cool that way but you can erase that part of the frame as well).

Add a dropshadow of 2, 2, 75, 6.99, black to all elements, the tube & the frame.  Add your name ( I used EyeCandy4000-Gradient Glow & Glass on my name) and all copyrights.  You're done!  If you make a tag using this tutorial please email it to me!  I'd love to see what you guys make!
