“Dragon‘s Breath” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Dee of Scraps by Dmg and can be purchased at The North Wing. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Dee - this kit is more than awesome!!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Quick Note:
First we’re going to assemble the entire tag and then go back and add the extra layers for the animation. It seems the easiest way without losing anyone.

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

Copy and paste Frame 8 as a new layer.
Resize 85%
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 3.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 14 Into Selection.
Copy and paste Dragon 1 as a new layer.
Move into position - see my tag for reference.
Selections/Invert
Tap the delete key.
Deselect.
Lower the Opacity to about 48 or so.
DO NOT give the frame a drop shadow yet if you intend to animate the tag.

Copy and paste Frame 5 as a new layer.
Resize 85%
Move to the left just a bit.
Click inside of all the openings with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 24 Into Selection.
Deselect for now.

Copy and paste Fire Tower as a new layer.
Resize 40%
Move into position below the frame - see my tag for reference.

Copy and paste Glass Bobble Hanger as a new layer.
Resize 40%

Copy and paste Dragon 1 as a new layer.
Free rotate right 25 degrees.
Move into position - see my tag for reference.
Change the Properties to Luminance Legacy.

Highlight the frame layer again.
Click inside of all the openings with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6
Selections/Invert
Highlight each of the elements below the frame and tap the delete key.
Deselect.

(I erased the part of the dragon that you could see in the left frame)

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Brad 2: Resize 25% and 30%/Duplicate to decorate the corners of the frames
Candle: Resize
Frame 11: Resize 50%
Dragon 2
Gem 12 through 16: Choose which stars you want/Resize 60%
 
Highlight your white background.
Select All
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Deselect.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Add your credits.

Add your name.
Give it a slight inner bevel:


Resize all layers 80%.

If you’re not going to animate then save.

If you are then lets continue…

Highlight the Candle layer.
Create 4 layers above it.
Name them C1, C2, C3, and C4

Highlight the Candle layer again.

Create 4 layers above it.
Rename them F1, F2, F3, and F4.

Highlight the chain frame.

Highlight F1 layer.
