This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open a 750 X 750 canvas. Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Negative Frame 1 as a new layer. Use your magic wand and click inside of each square, including the piece of a square at the very top. Copy and paste a paper of choice below the frame layer. Selections/Invert. Hit the delete key. Deselect.

Use your magic wand and click inside the top square. Selections/Modify/Expand by 3. Copy and paste a tube beneath the frame. Hit the delete key. Repeat this step for the other 2 squares. Merge visible the frame, tubes, and background paper. You should not have only your white canvas and the merged frame layer.

Copy and paste a Journal of choice as a new layer. Position behind the frame.

Copy and paste a Butterfly of choice as a new layer. Resize 40%. Free rotate right 20 degrees.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Copy and paste word art as a new layer. Resize 60%. Move into position behind your tube.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Ribbon: Resize 30%
Heart: Resize 50%.

Copy and paste the Lips as a new layer behind your tube. Resize 40%. Free rotate right 15 degrees. If you intend to animate then duplicate twice for a total of 3 and rename Lips 1, 2, and 3.

On Lips 1 apply the DSB Flux/Bright Noise with these settings:
Intensity: 47

On Lips 2 apply the same accept hit the mix button twice. On Lips 3 apply the same accept hit the mix button 3 times.

Close out all lip layers, word art, and white canvas. Merge visible. Duplicate the word art. Close out the duplicated word art layer and move the other word art layer behind the merged layer. Close out your white canvas and merge visible. Duplicate. Open up your white canvas. Highlight the merged layer. Adjust/Blur/Gaussian Blur:
Radius 35.
Duplicate/Mirror/Merge Down. Apply your mask to this layer. Merge group.

Now open up your word art layer and move behind the Copy of Merged Layer.

Yikes! That was a lot of copying, merging, duplicating, opening and closing, merging down! I hope you’re still with me...hehehe.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.

Onto the Animation:
Be sure Lips 1 layer is open and Lips layer 2 & 3 are closed. Copy merge. Carry into Animation shop. Edit/Paste as New Animation. Go back into PSP. Close out Lips layer 1 and open Lips layer 2. Copy merge. Carry into AS. Edit/Paste after Current Frame. Go back into PSP. Close out Lips 2 layer and open up Lips 3 layer. Carry back into Animation Shop. Edit/Paste after Current Frame. View your animation. If you’re happy with it then save.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
