postheadericon Rac Drive Me Crazy 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 :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Ismael Rac which you must have a license to use. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc. but they are now closed. You can now find Ismael's artwork licensed through his own store. Pls do not use his work without purchasing through here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from KatNKDA called Girlish, which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used zuzzanna_mask07
which can be downloaded from her blog here.

Word Art of Choice .. I have used word art from Lilmama which can be downloaded from her blog here.

Font of Choice .. I have used Comic Sans MS.

Let's get started !

Open your mask. New image 600x600. Floodfill with white. New layer, select all, copy and paste Paper 12 into selection. Select none.

New mask layer from image, zuzzanna_mask07, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Resize 90% and to add a lil sparkle, add the following Xenofex/Constellation settings.

Copy and paste Frame 01. Using your magic select all the open areas of your frame. If you find it easier, use your free hand selection tool to select around the area. Copy and paste Paper 10, resize 50%, selections/invert and hit delete. Do no deselect.

Copy and paste tube and resize 85%. Layer duplicate. Make certain you have one layer above your frame layer and one below.

Hit delete on the tube layer that is below your frame layer. Select none. I also trimmed the longer ribbon a piece. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4.

On your tube layer that is above your frame to make it appear your tube is coming out of the frame.

Copy and paste Element 03, resize 50% and position bottom right. Copy and paste Element 4, resize 40% and position top left. Merge down both element layers.

Duplicate twice and rename layers Doodle 1, Doodle 2 & Doodle 3. On yourDoodle layer apply Dsb flux/bright noise/intensity 30/mix checked.

Apply the same bright noise to your next doodle layer and mix twice. Apply again to your last doodle layer hitting mix 3 times. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice and bright noise portions of this tut.

Copy and paste Element 1, resize 20% and dark shadow. Position above your bow. Layer duplicate and resize 65%. Position a lil next to the first flower.

Copy and paste word art of your choice and resize as required. I applied the following gradient glow and then dark shadow.

Resize 500x500. Add copyright and your name. I have used Comic Sans MS size 36 and added the same gradient glow and drop shadow as my word art.

If you are choosing not to animate, then you can save your tag.

To animate, close off Doodle Layer 2 & 3 (the lil eye icon in your layer palette), Edit/Copy Merged and paste as new animation in Animation Shop. Close off Doodle Layer 1 and open Doodle Layer 2, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Close off Doodle Layer 2 and open Doodle Layer 3, Edit/Copy Merged and paste after current frame in AS. Save as a gif.
