postheadericon Beautiful Heart 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 Susan McKivergan which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through Up Your Art here. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc. but they are now closed. 

Mask of Choice .. I haved used zuzzanna_mask9 which can be downloaded here.

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

Font of Choice .. Waterbrush ROB 

Filters used .. Xenofex/Constellation & Eye Candy/Gradient Glow 

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, floodfill with gradient of your choice. I have used a standard PSP one called Ocean Blues.

New mask layer from image, zuzzanna_mask9, invert mask data checked, and merge group. Resize 75%.

Using your selection tool, select the middle area like this.

Copy and paste your image, selections invert and hit delete. Select none. Change blend mode of your image layer to overlay.

Apply the following Xenofex/Constellation.

Copy and paste your word art. I changed the color of mine from black to #11358d by using adjust color balance/manual color correction.

I then added a gradient glow size 30 color #acd7e4 and then drop shadow. I used 2/2/40/4.

Drop shadow your mask layer.

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

Add copyright and your name. I have used Waterbrush ROB, Size 36, color #11358d and then added the same gradient glow as before but size 10 as well as drop shadow.

Save and you are done.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Pls feel free to experiment and use my tutorial as a guide.

Please feel free to send me your results. I'd love to see what you came up with.
