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 :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Michael Landefeld which you must have a license to use. Please do not use this work without purchasing through CDO here. I am licensed through CILM which is now closed.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU Kit from Bello Scarto called "Lil Miss USA" which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask215 which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Impact & TheNautiGal

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 9. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask215, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group. Repeat using Paper 16 and resize 85%.

Copy and paste Element 3, resize 65% & drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Position top left hand corner. Repeat with Element 2 and position top right hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 29 and resize 85%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of both frames, selections modify/expand 5. Copy and paste Paper 16 below your frame layer, resize 65%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none. Drop shadow your frame.

Copy and paste Element 6 & drop shadow.

Copy and paste Element 43, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position at the top of your star frame.

Copy and paste Element 14, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position on the right hand side. Repeat with 13 and position next to your first balloon.

Copy and paste Element 30, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position hanging from your frame on the left hand side.

Copy and paste your tube, resize as necessary & drop shadow.

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

Add copyright and name on your tag.

For the Word Art, I used Impact, Size 65, Paper 16 as the background color #388600 to type out "Miss USA". I then added the following gradient glow and drop shadow.

For the name, I used TheNautiGal, Size 72, Color #fd0404 and then added a noise effect (Adjust/add remove noise/random & monochrome checked/75%) and a size 5 fat white gradient glow and then 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.
