postheadericon Garvey XOXO 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 PTU Kit from Creative Intentionz called Funky Valentine which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask84 Weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. I am using Gwendolyn Bold

Filters of Choice .. DSB Flux/Bright Noise

Let's get started !

Open your mask in PSP. New image 600x600 and floofill with white. New raster layer, select all, copy into selection Paper 5. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask84, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group.

Copy and paste Gem Frame 3 and resize 65%. Copy and paste Gem Frame 4 and resize 55%. Merge down both gem frame layers. 
Duplicate layer twice and rename frame 1, 2 & 3. On your first layer apply DSB Flux/Bright Noise 35%. On your 2nd layer, apply bright noise again, hitting mix twice. On your 3rd layer, apply again hitting mix 3 times. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip this part of the tutorial.

Copy and paste Bunched Ribbon 1 and position top left hand corner of your frame and drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Roses 1, resize 75%, mirror, rotate left 25 and drop shadow. Position just above your ribbon. Repeat with Roses 3 and position just a little lower.

Copy and paste your selected tube and drop shadow.

Copy and paste Word art 2, resize 75% and add the following gradient glow and then drop shadow. Position bottom centre.

Copy and paste Butterfly 1, resize 35%, rotate right 25 and drop shadow. Position top right hand corner.

Copy and paste Butterfly 3, resize 35%, rotate left 25 and drop shadow. Position just bordering your word art.

Copy and paste Tag 3, resize 75% and drop shadow. Position just below your butterfly layer on the right so it appears the tag is dangling.

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Gwendolyn Bold 30 black. Position on your tag.  

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

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

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.
