Blue Dreams


1 tube of choice – I used the beautiful artwork of Meg Baker which can be purchased from PSP TubeStop.  You just have a license to use.  The butterflies used in this tutorial came with the tube.

Font of choice - I used Clipper Script here

Monti Circular Mask here

“Blue Dream” is a FTU tagger size scrap kit created by Cindy of Puddicat Creations and can be downloaded from her blog here.
 Thank you Cindy for your wonderful generosity!

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

This tutorial is a quickie!

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

Copy and paste Frame 5 as a new layer.
Resize 65%
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Contract by 17.
Copy and paste Paper 13 Into Selection.
Copy and paste Bling 1 as a new layer over the paper layer.
Tap the delete key.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Move into position in front of the frame.
Highlight the paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the tube layer.
Use your Eraser Tool to erase any part of the tube you don’t want to hang outside of the frame.

Add your elements.  I used:

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 16 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
