postheadericon Ringing in the New Year 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 Tom Hoover which you must have a license to use. Please do not use his work without purchasing through MPT here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from Puddicat called Nathalie New Year's Ball which be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask105 which can be downloaded from weescotslass here.

Font of Choice .. I have used Levenim MT.

Let's get started !

New Image 600x600 and floodfill with white. Open your mask in PSP.

New raster layer, select all and paste into selection Paper 9. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask112, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Resize 110%.

Copy and paste Frame 2 & resize 75%. Using your magic wand, select the middle of your frame. Selections & modify expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 7, selections invert, hit delete and do no deselect. Move this layer below your frame layer. Copy and paste your tube & hit delete. Select none. 

Copy and paste your tube again, but this time above your frame layer. Erase the bottom portion of your tube that covers your frame.  Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Doodle 2, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner, just above your mask layer. Layer duplicate and mirror. 

Copy and paste Ribbon 3, resize 50%  & drop shadow. Position bottom of your frame. Copy and paste Streamer 4, resize 75%,  rotate right 75% & drop shadow. Position just above your ribbon. 

Copy and paste Noisemaker 3, resize 65% & drop shadow. Postion left hand side of your frame. Copy and paste Glass 2, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position a lil to the left of your noisemaker. Copy and paste Champagne bottle 2, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position just on your glass and noisemaker. Reposition so that all elements are visible nicely. See my tag for placement. 

Copy and paste Balloon 3, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position top left hand side hanging down to your glass. 

Copy and paste Flower 5, resize 55% & drop shadow. Position right hand side of your frame. Copy and paste Flower 7, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position just above your other flower.

Copy and paste Hat, resize 50%,  rotate right 45 & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand side just over the stems of your flowers. 

X out white background, merge visible.

Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).

Add copyright & add your name. I used Levenim MT size 48 navy blue and added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow. 

Save and you are done.
