“Family Portrait” is a FTU tagger size scrap kit created by Franny of Scraps from an Angel and can be downloaded from her blog here. Please leave a thank you when downloading. It’s a small gesture for hard work given freely and it would really make the designer feel appreciated.

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 1 as a new layer.
Resize 30%
Using my tag as a reference move the frames into position.
Close out your white canvas.

Reopen your canvas.

Using your Magic Wand click inside each of the frames.
New Raster layer below the frames.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.

Move the larger tube slightly up toward the corner of the frame.
Tap the Delete key.
Change the Properties to Soft Light.
Highlight the other tube.
Tap the delete key.

Repeat the above step with the other 2 remaining frames.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Ribbon 4: Resize 25% Free rotate right 60 degrees
