Notice and TOU

Most of my tutorials are written using PTU art and scrapkits! That however should not stop you from trying them. I understand not everyone can buy scrapkits and/or art but there are tons of FTU artist and freebie scrapkits that you can use. I only write tutorials as a guide. What YOU do with them is up to your imagination
All Tutorials have been written in PSP 8. They are just a guideline on how to make a tag look a certain way and do not have to be followed word for word!
If you are a group manager please feel free to link to my tutorials but if you don't mind could you leave me a link to your group in my chatbox or you can email me
I love to see what people make using my tuts
Thank you.

Dark Fae

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written using PSP 8 but can be done in other versions

6-8 Tubes of Choice from the same artist
*I am using the fantastic artwork of Jessica Galbreth. You MUST have a licences to use these same tubes*

Feeling Grungy
*This is a gorgeous scrap kit by DigiMania. You can purchase this kit (and all her others) at I Got Lucky Skraps*

2011 Template 4
*This is a template by me and can be downloaded HERE*

Lets Get Started:
1). Open all supplies in PSP
Shift + D to duplicate the template
Close the original

2). Delete the copyright layer off the template
Make your Circle 1 layer active
Select All
Copy and paste your paper of choice as a new layer
Select None
*Do these same steps with your Circle 2 layer and your Rectangle layer changing papers for each shape*

3). Make your Rectangle layer active
Copy and paste your tubes of choice and arrange them until they look the way you want them on the canvas
Once you have them arranged hide ALL your layers EXCEPT the tube layers
Right click and Merge Visible
Make your Rectangle layer visible again
Select All
Make your Tube layer active again and delete the part hanging over your rectangle
*Make sure your tube layer is ABOVE the paper layer you have on your rectangle*
Select None

4). Make your merged tube layer active
On the duplicate use the Gaussian Blur set at 5
Change the blend mode to Soft Light

5). Make your original merged tube layer active again
Select all
Copy and paste another paper of your choice
Select None
Move the paper ABOVE the duplicate tube layer but below the Lines layer
Change the blend mode to Overlay
*You may have to play with this setting depending on your tubes. I lowered the opacity of my top layer to about 80*

6). Add any embellishments you would like

7). Resize if you feel necessary

8). Add all copyright and any license information needed

9). Add your name
*I added a Gradient Glow and a slight dropshadow to make the name stand out*

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