This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.
It is done in PSP 8 but can be completed in other versions


Tube of Choice
*I am using the always stunning artwork of Zindy S.D. Nielsen. You MUST have a license to use the same tube*

Love of Autumn ScrapKit
*This is a gorgeous PTU kit by Rieka_Rafita of Scraps with Attitude*

Template 109
*This is a fantastic template by Scraps of Enchantment. You can download this and a TON of other template goodies on her blog. Please leave some love if you download*

Font of choice
*I am using International Palms*

Plugins (All optional)
Eye Candy 4000~Gradient Glow

Lets Get Started:
1). Open all supplies
Delete the copyright layer on your template

2). Make sure your Circle Background layer is active
Selections~Select All
Copy and paste a paper of choice
Select None
Delete the original layer
*Do this for ALL layers EXCEPT the brush and stars layer. Use a different paper for each layer*

3). Duplicate your 2 small square frame backgrounds
On the duplicate:
Adjust~Blur~Gaussian Blur
Setting of 5
Change Blend Mode to Soft Light

4). Copy and paste your tube of choice
Position where you want it
* I chose to make her look like she was coming out of the frame*
Xero~Radiance (default settings)
Change the blend mode to Soft Light
Lower the opacity to 75

5). Colorize your brush layer to match your tag

6). On your stars layer:
Selections~Select All
Flood fill with a color of your choice
Select None

7). Add any elements or wordart you want
*I decided to make a cluster of leaves tied with a ribbon. To do this, open a 400*400 transparent canvas and simply resize and rotate the leaves until you are happy. I then merged visible and cropped and resized the leaves before placing them on my tag*

8). Add your name
*Resize your tag now if necessary*

9). Add all copyright and any license information needed

10). Save in your desired format and you are all done
