Carita's scrapkit 'Pink Kisses' was used for this tag/tutorial
ęBarbara Jensen artwork was used in the tag,
(Tube Layered 55-2.)
You must purchase and have a license # to
use her tubes
My License is CDO-2339 OR BJ3511
I used PSP X 5 for all the tutorial, except for
the text art ' Pink Kisses'
I used Photoshop CS3 Extended. I will show you how
to do the text too in
DBV Mask 156 found
Font used: A&S
In the supplies folder is the
round pink fan, sparkles, jewels & Pink Kisses word art.
Let's get started..
#1. Open a new image 900 x 900 I always
Plenty of room to move things around just like you
like then resize later.
#2. I Opened all the elements out of the scrap
kit, Pink Kisses.. that I planned on using.
Barbara Jensen's tube on the pink layers..
same color pink as the elements of the kit..
so I used the recolor tool so that all matched.
#3. You can use any scrap kit really...using the
same techniques but different elements and tube.
#4. Open a frame ( ele9.png) Copy and paste it
into your new image 900 x 900. You don't have
to resize it.
#5. Copy & paste a bkg paper out of the kit.. I
pp5.jpg to your new working image. Drag its
the frame layer...Good habit to get into is
name your layers.. less confusing if you do.
#6. Highlight the paper layer on the layer
palette. Go to
Layers/Load /Save Mask/Load Mask from Disk.
Find your mask on the drop down list
you saved on computer. After you apply the
mask if you will look on the layer palette, the mask
has 3 layers... highlight the top on.. right click
Use these settings below.
#7. Open another bkg paper out of the kit you're
using and copy and paste it to the working image.
Make sure its layer is under the frame layer but
above the mask layer.
#8. Select your magic wand tool set on 20
tolerance. Have the frame layer
selected on the layer palette , click the inside
of the frame. The inside of frame should be selected now ,
Go to Selections/Modify/ Expand by 15 pixels or
Selections/Invert and making sure you are on the
new bkg paper layer you just pasted there.. CUT or Delete.
Your image should look like mine below. Select
#9. Copy and paste the tube you're using on top of
the frame layer.
#10. Place all the elements you're using on to
your working image. You don't have to
have your elements exactly like mine.. Artistic
license here :)
This is how I did mine.
#11. The fan circle element I resized 83% and
copied & pasted it to my working image
dragged its layer to right above the mask layer,
under the bkg behind the frame layer. (2nd from the bottom)
Apply a 3D shadow , Duplicate the fan layer and
position it right across on the other side.
#12. I decided I wanted to animate my tag.
So I added a layer and dragged it
to the bottom of the layer palette.. filled with
This is what I have so far.
#13. Animating the tag. I duplicated the
layer bkg under the frame. 2 times..
so you end up with 3 layers of that bkg.
Hide two of the layers...Highlight the un hid layer on the
layer palette. Go to Effects/Plugins/Alien Skin
Eye Candy 5 Textures/Texture Noise
Use the settings below
#14. On each of the other 2 identical layers
go to the Eye Candy 5 but just click the
Random Seed Button.. no need to change any of the
#15. I have supplied the word art for those of you
don't have Photoshop CS 3 or any version for
But thought I would show you how I did it in
Text is one of the ways that Photoshop outshines
PSP and I love my PSP
Take whatever bkg paper your going to use to make
your text fill and
open it in Photoshop CS-3. Click F11 or go
to Edit/Define Pattern. click OK on the
next lil window. Close the paper out.
#16. File / New Make sure its on pixels and
not inches.. I think by default its set on inches..
800 x 400 should work
#17. Click the T tool for text and type the Pink
Kisses or whatever you want.. choose your font.. etc
have it in black.. where you can see it better.
About like this
#18. Down on the bottom right.. of your
layer palette in PS 3 Click the FX button.
it don't matter what you click on.. it will bring
up the layer style box.
#19. When your layer style box comes up..
click on pattern overlay on the left
in the middle click on the drop down menu... to
pick the pattern you want to use as your fill.
you can see that I have the pattern at 70%. If you
see a part of the pattern you don't like
or a seam.. while the layer style box is open and
you're on pattern overlay you can click and drag the
pattern on the image and move it.. to where you
want to line it up better.
#20. keeping your Layer style box open you
you can do the bevel, 3d drop shadow.. and alot
Cool thing about Photoshop you can work on all
your layers adding more and more.. and if you
change your mind about a 3d shadow.. or anything
else.. you don't have to undo all of it.. just
get on that layer.. open the layer style box again
and change things.. In PSP you have to UNDO
a million times
#21. Ok this is what I ended up with.. I didn't
use a pattern fill.. There is alot of settings to this.. but the
results is worth it.
I always make my word art BIG in Photoshop shop
the results are much better..
save it as a PNG then open in PSP and resize
Here are the settings to achieve this word art.
#22. After you finish
your word art.. Back in PSP copy and paste it onto your working tag
To animate.. all you have to
do... is hide 2 of those layer bkgs you used the Eye Candy 4
Right click on top of
working image window and do Copy Merged.. Open your
Animation shop and right
click on the AS desk top.. Paste as a new animation. Back in
hide that textures bkg layer
and unhide the next one...right click on top, Copy Merge. Back to AS
and right click on the new
animation... paste after current frame, Back to PSP. Hide that layer
the textured noise and
unhide the last one (there are only 3) Right click on top Copy
Back to AS and right click
and paste after current frame again..
You should have 3
frames to your animation.. SAVE AS a GIF
Toodles till next time
