  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 Suzanne Woolcott which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU Kit from Clarey called "Love Bugs" which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask106 which can be downloaded 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, select all, paste into selection Paper 8. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask106, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group.

Duplicate twice and rename your layers Mask 1,2 and 3. On your first Mask layer apply the following Xenofex/Constellation.

Apply the same effects to your next Mask layer and hit random once. Apply again to your last Mask layer hitting random twice. Select none. If you decide not to animate your tag, then just skip the duplicate twice.

Copy and paste Dot Frame 3, resize 90% & drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Branch 2, resize 85% & drop shadow. Position on the right hand side.

Copy and paste String 1, resize 75%, flip & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side. Repeat with String 3.

Copy and paste Rectangle Frame 1, resize 65% & rotate left 15. Position top left hand corner. Layer duplicate and mirror. Position bottom right hand corner.

Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your top frame, selections modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 3 below your frame layer, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect. Copy and paste your first tube below your frame, resizing as necessary and hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow your frame & tube.

Repeat with your 2nd frame using a different tube and I have chosen Paper 2.

Copy and paste Curled Ribbon 3 and drop shadow. Position along the bottom. Copy and paste Curled Ribbon 6, resize 75% and drop shadow. Position along the bottom. Copy and paste Scatter 2, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position along the bottom as well.

Copy and paste Caterpillar, resize 75% & drop shadow. Position along the bottom on the right hand side.

Copy and paste Butterfly, resize 75% and drop shadow. Position top right hand corner. Copy and paste Flower 2, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position at the base of your branch just at the top of your bottom frame.

Copy and paste Bow 3 & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner of your top frame.

Copy and paste Silver word 5, resize 75% & position top left hand corner. I then added a size 5 fat white gradient glow and then a drop shadow.

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Waterbrush Rob Size 60 color #50897a and added the same gradient glow and drop shadow as with the word art.

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

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