postheadericon Garvey True Love 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 Keith Garvey 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 FTU kit from Soxsational called Kiss Kiss which can be found on here blog here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask84 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 11. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask84, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. 

Copy and paste Frame 1 &  rotate left 90. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 5 below your frame layer,  selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. 

Copy and paste your tube below your frame layer, selections invert and hit delete. Select none. Copy and paste your tube again but this time above your frame layers. Erase the bottom portion of your tube so it appears she is coming out of the frames. I have added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Blood roses just above your frame layer. Rotate right 15 and position top right hand corner. Drop shadow.

Copy Blood roses 2, resize 65%, image mirror & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner going up on the side of the frame.

Copy and paste Candle 2, resize 35% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner. Copy and paste Candle 1, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position next to your other candle.

Copy Flower swirls 2, resize 30% and add the same gradient glow as previously and drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner of your frame. 

Copy Pearls 1, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner of your frame. Copy and paste Elegant bow 1, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position above your pearls. 

Copy and paste Doodle 1, resize 65%, image flip/mirror and drag this layer just above your mask layer.

Copy and paste Butterfly 3, resize 30%,  rotate right 15 & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner. 

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 black and added the same gradient glow and then drop shadow as before. 

Save and you are done.
