using PSP X 6



#1. Create a new image 900 x 900

Open paper 4.jpg  drag it over to your new image

Apply the mask that was in your supplies zip with these settings


#2. Merge/ merge group.

Use your deformation tool to enlarge the mask layer pulling it out on the corners

#3.  Sharpen the mask layer twice.

Fill the bottom layer on the layer palette with white..

Open element 43.png (frame) Using your selection tool make a selection on the inside of the frame..

don't cut any of the black off.. just the inside red.. click delete when done just copy and paste over to your new image.


#4. Open paper 1.jpg  resize 80%  drag over to your working image below the frame layer.

#5. Use your magic wand tool and click on the inside of the frame.. go to selections/ modify/ expand  10 pixels..

 INVERT and cut or delete the extra outside parts of Paper 1.jpg

Open the element Dark.png that was in the supplies zip Copy and paste it to your working image.

#6. Duplicate the layer and flip it.. Be sure not to cut any of its layers off..

Well I think I'm going to resize all the layers (running out of room :)

Resize all layers 88%  then go to image/ canvas size 900 x 900 again.. sorry about that :)

Refill on the bottom layer the white so that it's completely filled..

Doing this.. you can move out your black dark.png deco out some where it looks good.


#7. Apply a 3d drop shadow to your frame also

Open element 35.png (necklace) resize 65% copy the necklace over to your image under

 the frame layer but above the red rose bkg behind the frame

#8. Open element 52.png (accordion deco) resize 80% copy and paste over to your working image.. place

in the right hand corner below the frame and  bkg paper.. but above the mask layer.

Then open the rose cluster that was in the  supplies zip.. I resize it 77% and mirrored it.

Your image should look like the one below.

#9. Open element 72.png (red bow)  copy it over to your image.

Open element 62.png resize 50%

Open the Dark Love text art that was in the supplies zip... resize 65%

Open element 88.png resize 65 % sharpen

#10.Open the tube your going to use too.. resize her 80%.. use your erase tool

to erase the bottom of the tube.. so its not so straight across...

Now is a good time to resize your image if you want it smaller.. after you do that.. COPY MERGED

Open your animation shop and paste as a new animation.  Open the animated candle file that was in your supplies zip

it has 21 frames.. so duplicate your new animation till you have 21 frames also.. Ctrl + A to select all frames in both animations.

Click, hold and drag F: 1 of the candle animation over to F: 1 of your new animation.. let go of mouse button when you place the

candle where you want it.. Check your animation.. to see if it looks ok..

if so.. save as a GIF..


till next time friends
