I used a PTU kit by
Jumpstart Designs ' Settling into Autumn'
Also a lovely tube by
ŠAlex Prihodko my
Tube and kit are not included in the supplies
zip... you must purchase those.
I used PSP X6. You could use any version of PSP
#1. File/New image 900
x 900, 300 dpi This is your new working image.
#2. Open the Frame.png that is in
the supplies zip.. I made the frame in Photoshop...my next tutorial
will be on how I did THAT :)
I also put the dotted paper on it
in Photoshop but will show you how to do it in PSP X6.
#3. Resize the frame by 50%, Drag
its layer from layer palette over to your working image
Close the original.
#4. Selections/ Select All
Selections/Float Selections/ Defloat
#5. Add a new layer on top of the
frame layer. Open the paper, JSD_SettlingIntoAutumn_PattPaper_2.jpg
minimize it on your PSP desktop.
In your material properties box ,
click the pattern tab, in the current pattern box ,
choose the opened paper I
mentioned above in the Current Pattern window.
Set it at 40%. Or what ever size you
want the dots on the frame.
Click on your fill tool and
fill the empty layer, by clicking inside the frame selected outline.
Delete the original black frame
In PSP there are always more than
one way of doing the same thing...This below is one of the ways to
darken the frame edges.
#6. Click on your Magic Wand tool
Use the magic wand tool settings below and Click on
the OUTSIDE of the Frame.. make sure the frame layer is highlighted
in the layer palette.
#7. Go to ADJUST/ Brightness
and Contrast/Curves. Click on the exact center of the line.
This makes a point dot.. drag
the dot down and all the way to the bottom right.
Like it shows here below in this
sample. This action will darken the outside edges of the frame..
making it look a lil bit more dimensional.
#8. If you don't want to do the
frame yourself.. I put the finished frame in the supplies zip.
I also put the paper
JSD_SettlingIntoAutumn_PaperBlend_2.jpg paper from the scrapkit
behind the frame.
FYI ALL elements have to
be resized.. and I didn't mention what percentage.. sorry.. will do
#9. I used Splatter_3 element
under the frame layer.. Duplicated the Splatter layer twice so there
are 3 layers of the splatter
I also used the Bubbles_1.png
element and duplicated it twice. So there are 3 layers of the
bubbles there too.
I used ALOT of elements in the
finished image... This is always.. up to the creator on how you want
your image to look.
All the elements of this kit has
JSD_SettlingIntoAutumn in front of the name of the elements... I
wont put that.. but its assumed ok?
This is the list of the elements I
Flower_3, 5, 9, 12, 13, 14
You can see how I arranged them
below. Each element has a 3D drop shadow on it..
I used the same settings on all
Once you have all the elements
positioned the way you like... You can put the Text png on the frame
I supplied the word art in
the supplies zip. It was done in Photoshop OR you can do your own
