Image and Attitude

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice - I'm using the artwork of Keith Garvey which you can purchase here
Font of choice - I'm using Bibliotheque which you can get here
Mask of Choice – I’m using WSL Mask 119 which you can get here
Scrap kit of choice. Once again I’m using "Oh So Pink" a PTU kit by Monica’s Sweet Addiction and you can download it from here. Monica, this kit is fabulous!! Thank you once again!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a canvas 600 x 600. Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Cluster Frame as a new layer. Resize 70%. Free rotate left 90 degrees. Move to the left side of your canvas. Use your magic wand and click inside the frame. Section/Modify/Expand by 4. Select/Invert.

Copy and paste Paper 16 as a new layer beneath the frame layer. Colorize to match your tube. Hit the delete key.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer to the right of the frame. Duplicate, image/mirror. Move that layer beneath the frame layer. You may need to move the duplicated image to the right a little. Use your judgement – see my tag for reference. Once happy where it is highlight the frame layer. Use your magic wand and click inside the frame. Select/Modify/Expand by 4. Highlight the tube layer and hit the delete key. Select none. Lower the opacity to about 63.

Copy and Paste a ribbon of choice as a new layer. Colorize to match your color theme. Resize 50%. Move into position.

Copy and paste any of the flowers as a new layer. Again, colorize if need be. Resize 20% (or whatever you choose). Move into position where you like.

Copy and paste an Envelope of your choice. Colorize if you like. Resize 30% and again 85%. Free rotate left 15 degrees.

Copy and paste a butterfly of your choice. Resize 25%, again 80%. Move into position.

Copy and paste Love Heart Frame as a new layer just above your plain white canvas layer. Resize 80%.

Highlight your plain white canvas. Add new raster layer. Select all. Paste paper 18 into selection. Select none. Duplicate the layer. Colorize each paper layer to match your tag, but make one a dark color, the other a lighter color – keeping the lighter color on top of the darker. Apply your mask to both layers making sure your merge group. On the lighter color layer lower the opacity to 30.
