While working on a tag for Kaci's CT I came up with a word art that I wanted to share!
And here it is!

My friend Becca (found here) decided to play tube fairy yesterday after seeing me drool over some gorgeous Jensen tubes.  So I made her a pretty tag and turned it into my second tutorial.


Tutorial written by Mavy Storme
Just a note but if you are new to PSP you might not fully understand this tutorial as sometimes my thoughts do not come out quite the way I mean for them to when I write them down and I can be very hard to follow. I will explain to the best of my ability and hopefully you can follow my thoughts.


Kit: Exclusive kit from the Tagger’s  Den by Alika’s Scraps found here.
Tube: Barb Jensen’s tube layered 23 found here
Mask: my own mask , see image below, and WeeScotsLass mask 148 found here

Font: Edwardian Script, and Pixlette for copyright
Plug ins: Eye candy 3.1 glow and drop shadow, Lokas Software 3D shadow, Plug in Galaxy Noiseee, Xero Friltillary
PSP Version: I use X4, but if you have a good knowledge of psp you should be able to use any version

I usually open everything I’m going to use while to create the tag right then, some I actually use, others I tend not to, depends on how the tag turns out.  In this case, I didn’t use everything I opened but I’ll give a list of just what I opened: as paper 5 and 11, as09, as73, as24, as73, as36, and as60, and my word art that you’ll find just below.

(To see a larger size and save click on the image and then right click)


Now let’s see if I can explain how I made the tag…

To start open a new paper 600X600 with a transparent background and make sure your DPI is 72.000.  It can be cropped/resized before you put your copyrights on later if you don’t like the size.

Get as paper 05 and copy and paste on your new image.  Make sure the TD mask is in your masks folder and you can go to selections, load mask from disk, otherwise you’ll have to open it on your workspace and go to layers, new mask layer, and make sure you select td mask.  See image for reference.
  
Next merge group and resize to 50%.

Copy and paste your second paper (as paper 11) as a new layer to the new image (your tag).  Go to selections, load mask from disk and use WSL_Mask 148.  Merge group and move the image below your TD mask layer.  Go to effects, Zero, Fritillary.  See settings below.


Go to your Ellipse tool (the oval on the preset images tool) and make sure your colors are white and white. On your presets make sure your image is an oval.  Make an oval about the width of the WLS mask, but not quite as tall.  Convert it to a raster layer, flood fill it a dark red, go to effects, Plug in Galaxy, Noisee.  See the settings on the image below.


Get element AS09 copy and paste under the TD mask layer, resize to 50%
Get element AS73 copy and paste as top layer, resize to 75%.
Get element AS24 copy and paste under the beaded circle layer.

Copy and paste your tube as the top layer, resize to 65%.  Go to your move tool, move the tube slightly to the left so that you can see the skull and rose just beside it.  Then go to effects, Eye candy 3.1, and use a drop shadow on it.  See settings in image.

  If you want to make it look a little neater, you can erase the slight shadow just under the edge of the bottom of the legs.

Get element AS60 copy and paste, and resize to 50%.  Move to the bottom right of your tag.  Effects, Lokas 3D shadow.  See settings in image.


Get AS36, copy and paste it, then resize to 75%.  Move it down under the layer with the TD heart, and then move it over to where it is just slightly under the wings.  Try to get it as centered as possible.

Copy and paste the word art to your tag, go to your move tool and move it to the top right corner of your mask as the top layer.  You’ll want to let it be slightly above the mask just for looks.

Add your copyright credits, I use pixlettte at size 10, with anti-alias off, and stroke width at 0.  I convert to raster and add a glow (eye candy 3.1).

After that you can use your font and give it to your friends!

Hope you enjoyed and made use of this tutorial, thanks for looking!

With Kaci's new kit Rockabilly found here on her blog I made another tag
My fiance got me this Barb Jensen pack a while back and I hadn't used this particular tube much, never seemed to have a kit that fit her, I do now, even though Kaci made it to go with a Myka Jelina tube.

I'm pleased to say that Kaci of Scrappin' Krazy Designs has been kind enough to let me CT for her with tags!  And so using Kaci and Viki's Collab kit Raven I created some tags!
Here is a link to her blog where you can find her stores where Raven is being sold.

The first is a Tony Mauro tag:
The second is a Camilla Drakenborg forum set:

Tutorial written by Mavy Storme

 

 

Just a note but if you are new to PSP you might not fully understand this tutorial as sometimes my thoughts do not come out quite the way I mean for them to when I write them down and I can be very hard to follow. I will explain to the best of my ability and hopefully you can follow my thoughts.

Kit: PTU Kit Fireball from Scrappin’ Krazy Designs found here
Her stores are listed on site.
Tube: Arthur Crowe’s Spikette found here
Mask: Moonbeams and Spider webs mask 21 here
Font: Splendid Ornamenty, and Pixlette for copyright
Plug ins: Eye candy 3.1 glow and drop shadow, Lokas Software 3D shadow

I usually open everything I’m going to use while to create the tag right then, some I actually use, others I tend not to, depends on how the tag turns out.  In this case, I used everything I opened, which was papers P01, and P05, Frame1, Dice, safety pin, devil heart, and metal swirl.

Now let’s see if I can explain how I made the tag…

Open new paper (you can resize when done before you add the copyrights if you don’t like the size) 600X600 with a transparent background.  My new images are automatically sized to 72.000 dpi, if yours isn’t you’ll want to set it to that.
Copy and paste paper P05 to your new image, go to layers, and load your mask.  Merge the group in your layers section before continuing.
Get your second paper, copy, and paste to your tag.  Copy and paste the frame to the tag next.  At this point, you should have 4 layers, your transparent background, your masked paper, your second paper, and your frame.
Get your magic wand tool and highlight the inside of the frame, go to selections and invert.  Click on the layer with the paper and delete, then go back to your frame, there should be a nice paper square inside your frame and nothing on the outside.
Go to effects, Lokas Software, 3D shadow and use the settings in the image provided below.

(click img to see larger)


Get the metal swirl, copy and paste to your tag under the frame.  Resize to 65% of original size, then go to your move tool and move it to the left, yet still inside the frame.
Get the safety pin, copy and paste, and resize to 25% .  Go to move tool, move to the top of the frame.  Duplicate layer, move one below the frame layer.  Go to the erase tool, and on the top safety pin layer remove one side of the safety pin to make it appear that the pin is going around the frame.
Get the dice, copy and paste to your tag.  Resize to 25% also.  Move up to the bottom half of the pin, duplicate layer, and if you have to zoom in to remove one side of the top layer to make it appear to be on the pin.  I had to zoom to 150% to get it correct.  Just a note but if you are using a large eraser size you’ll remove more than you mean to.  Mine was set to size 5.
Zoom back out if you had zoomed in.
Get the devil heart, copy and paste, and then move to the lower right hand side.  Go to layers, eye candy and use the drop shadow, see settings on the image below

Merge down the following layers, copy of raster 6, copy of raster 5, raster 6, raster 5, and raster 3.
Open your tube, if you aren’t using Spikette, try to make sure you have one with a close up included.  Get your close up tube and copy and paste under the frame.  Click on your frame layer, go to your magic wand, highlight the inside of the frame, go to selections, modify, expand 3 see image.


 Then go to selections and invert.  Select the tube layer and delete.
Click on the tube layer, right click for your properties, change the opacity to 50% so that she is very opaque.
Get the full tube, copy and paste under the devil heart, go to image, and flip horizontal (for other versions I believe it is mirror) move slightly to the right so that you can still see the face of the closeup.  Effects, eyecandy 3.1, glow, see settings on the image. 

Then do a drop shadow, settings on image.



Add your copyright credits, I use pixlettte at size 10, with anti-alias off, and stroke width at 0.  I convert to raster and add a glow (eye candy 3.1).
After that you can use your font and give it to your friends!
Hope you enjoyed and made use of this tutorial, thanks for looking!

My daughter (who thinks she's a princess) said this to me yesterday, and my first thought was Oh hell that would make a great word art. My second was to tell her to take her crown off then.

I have recently learned that a wonderful designer named ASmah RieKa, http://riekarafita.blogspot.com/, has passed away as of the 21st of December. Condolences to her friends and family. She was a wonderful person from what I knew of her, and I am certain she will be missed.
