postheadericon Piling Up The Memories 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 :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Sweet-PinUp which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through The doll Shop here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous FTU kit by Fantasy Moments called "Midnight Sky" which you can download here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask84 & WSL_Mask366 which can be downloaded here.

Word art of choice .. I have used word art by Word Art Fun which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Cutie Pie

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 4. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask84, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group. Resize 110%.

Repeat using Paper 6 & mask WSL_Mask366.

Duplicate twice and rename your layers Mask 1,2 and 3. On your first Mask layer apply Dsb Flux/Bright Noise/65. On your 2nd layer, apply bright noise again, hitting mix twice. On your 3rd layer, apply again hitting mix 3 times. If you are deciding not to animate, skip this part of the tutorial

Copy and paste Element 23 & resize 55%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 5, copy and paste Paper 1 below your frame layer, resize 65%, selections invert, hit delete & select none. Drop shadow your frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Merge down the frame with it's background layer. Layer duplicate and rotate right 25. Layer duplicate and mirror. I also dragged the first frame layer to the top.

Copy and paste Element 42, resize 65% twice & drop shadow. Position at the bottom of your frame.

Copy and paste Element 50, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position top centre of your frame. Copy and paste Element 6, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position hanging from top right hand corner of your frame. Copy and paste Element 17, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position at the top of your heart chain.

Copy and paste Element 32, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner. Copy and paste Element 45, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner. Repeat with Elements 47 & 48 and position next to your first flower.

Copy and paste Element 12, resize 30%, rotate left 30 & drop shadow. Position next to your flowers.

Copy and paste Element 77 & drop shadow. Centre. Copy and paste Element 63, resize 50%, mirror & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner.

Copy and paste your first tube layer, resize 50%/55% & drop shadow. Position sitting inside your top frame layer. Copy and paste your 2nd tube layer, resize 40% twice, mirror, rotate right 30 & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner.

Copy and paste your word art & resize 40% twice. I then added a size 6 fat color #f1b09b gradient glow. Select all/float/defloat/modify contract 6/invert and then adjust/add remove noise/add noise/monochrome gaussian checked/65%. Select none and drop shadow.

At this point if you need to, resize your tag. I have used 500x500. Add your copyright and name. I have used Cutie Pie, size 60 black. I then added all the same effects as were added to 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.

Save as a gif.
