postheadericon Friends Make Everything Better Tut

Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and
have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies & Filters :

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from Bits n Bobs called Back to Nature,
which can be purchased here.

Tube of Choice .. Part of the Back to Nature kit.

Template of Choice .. I have used Vix Template 11 which can be downloaded from her blog here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask81
which can be downloaded from her blog here.

Font of Choice .. I have used Sweetness.

Let's get started !

Open your mask & template in PSP. Delete copyright and heart layers.

Copy and paste Paper 10. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask81, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group.

Copy and paste Tiny butterflies 2, resize 90% and drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Element 6, resize 85% and drop shadow.

Select Rectangle fill layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste paper 2, resize 50%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original rectangle layer.

Select Rectangle frame layer, select all/float/defloat, new raster layer and floodfill with color #253b16. Select non and delete orginal frame layer. Drop shadow frame.

Copy and paste element 7 and drop shadow. Copy and paste Flower 8, resize 65% and drop shadow. Position to the right of your frame. Layer duplicate and mirror.

Copy and paste your tube and drop shadow.

Copy and paste Cloud 1 layer and drop shadow. Position this just below your tube's feet. Layer duplicate and flip. Drag this layer down just below the string bead layer (element6).

Copy and paste ribbon 4, resize 75%, drop shadow and mirror. Position just below your word art layer.

Using your selection tool, select only the FRIENDS part of your word art and colorize with color #235b16. Select none. I added a gradient glow size 3 fat white and drop shadow to my word art.

Copy and paste Butterfly 1 & 3, resize 30% and drop shadow. Copy and paste Element 8, resize 50% and drop shadow. Position these to you liking.

X out white background, merge visible.
Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).

Add copyright & Add your name. I used Sweetness size 36 white and a gradient glow with #253b16 and then drop shadow.

Save and you are done.
