FYI about my Templates

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm just now finding out about DPI and didnt realize that it is against licensing TOU so probably all of my templates are higher than they are allowed to be. So if you use any of my templates before now you will need to change the DPI to 72 before using them. All those made from here on out will be made at 72 DPI. I honestly didnt realize when I started making templates that there was a difference. So I'm still learning, lol. Sorry for any confusion and hassle. Hugs, Dawn

NEW TUTORIAL~WITCHES ARE HEXY

WITCHES ARE HEXY


This tutorial was written by myself, Dawn on September 30, 2009. Any similarities to any other tutorials is purely coincidental.
Still a bit new to the tutorial writing and its been awhile since I've done one so hope its OK.


Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice. I'm using the work of the amazing Keith Garvey and as of now you can find his work at MPT

Xero/Radiance ~ optional

DSB Flux Bright Noise ~ optional

Gaussian Blur ~ optional


OK lets get started, remember to save often.


Open all your supplies including the template in your PSP program of choice.

Delete the copyright layer from the template.

On all frame layers of the template go to Effects, Plugins, DSB Flux, Bright Noise Intensity 25 Mix, or a setting of your choice. Then add a dropshadow of choice to all frame layers.
Make a gradient color of black #000000 and orange #fb7f1a angle 45, repeat 3 and make as your foreground color. Click on the circle layer of the template, selections, select all, float, defloat. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your gradient. Selections, select none. Effects, Plugins, DSB Flux, Bright Noise, Intensity 25 Mix or a setting of your choice. Add dropshadow of choice to this layer and then delete the original circle layer. Click on the large rectangle layer, selections, select all, float, defloat. Copy and paste sb_halloween_pp1 from the kit, selections invert, delete. Selections, select none. Delete the original large frame layer. Click on the medium rectangle layer of the template, selections, select all, float, defloat, add new raster layer and floodfill with black #000000, selections, select none.

Take 2 or 3 tubes of choice, copy and paste them into your selections. Selections, invert, delete. Selections, select none. Bring tubes below frame layer.

Copy and paste your main tube of choice and place where youd like. I put mine to the right coming out of the large rectangle layer and used my selections tool to get rid of any excess of my tube that I didnt want by selecting that part and hitting delete. I then duplicated my tube and on the duplicate layer, adjust, blur, gaussian blur, radius 3, blend mode, soft light and then add a drop shadow of choice to the original tube.
Click on the wordart layer, selections, select none, float, defloat. Add new raster layer and floodfill with orange #fb7f1a. Selections, select none and delete the original wordart layer.

Template, tag and soon to be tutorial...


Well recently I became part of the CT for Pimp My Tags With Scraps and I am super excited about it. Its been awhile since I've written any tutorials. After my BIL was killed in Afghanistan real life took priority. I still wish more than anything I could take this pain away from my sister. PSP was kinda on the back burner for me cause I couldnt really concentrate for anything. I've always been a fan of PMTWS so thought if any place could get me kickstarted again, they would be it. So wish me luck and I will try my best. I made a template that I used in the tag shown and it will be the tag I write the tutorial for, probably tomorrow as I'm about to head to bed. You can pick up the template for download on my 4shared HERE. In this post is a preview of the template and the tag I made and will be tutting. Hope it is OK. Hugs, Dawn

Just an Update

Hey everyone!!! Sorry I havent been around much, just alot happened and I kinda got into a mood. My Mom had come out for my birthday and just left to go back home today, I miss her already. We had a great time!!! I'm going to start paying attenton to my blog again and start writing tutorials again. I hope to have some new stuff soon!! Hope everyone is doing well. Hugs, Dawn

Go to layers, new mask layer, from image, from your drop down menu choose Vix Mask 147, click OK. On your layers pallet on the right click on your original mask and merge group. you can lower the opacity of this mask layer if you would like, I did mine at 75 opacity. Add a new raster layer on top of the mask layer you just did. Make your foreground color #96413c and your background color #4e5275. Click on your foreground color and make it a gradient Angle:45, Repeats:3. OK. Flood fill your new raster layer with this gradient. Go to layers, new mask layer, from image, from your drop down menu choose Vix Mask 147, click OK. On your layers pallet on the right click on your original mask and merge group. You can also lower the opacity of this layer as well if you would like, I also did 75 on this one as well. With this mask layer you will go to image, flip, image, mirror.
On your rectangle 1 go to selections, select all, float, defloat and copy and paste paper of choice, I used Paper 14. Selections, invert, delete on your keyboard, selections, select none. Delete the original rectangle 1 layer. On your new rectangle 1 layer go to Adjust, Add/Remove noise...Add noise with settings: Uniform, Noise 30%, Monochrome checked and then add drop shadow of choice.
On the white ring layer just add a drop shadow of choice.
On rectangle 2 layer go to selections, select all, float, defloat and copy and paste paper of choice, I used Paper 3. Position in your selection where you want your paper to be and the parts you want showing. Selections, invert, delete on your keyboard, selections, select none. Delete the original rectangle 2 layer and add a drop shadow of choice to your new rectangle 2 layer.
Click on strip 1, selections, select all, float, defloat. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with black. Selections, select none. Delete original strip 1 layer and add a drop shadow of choice to your new strip 1 layer. Do the same exact thing for strip 2.
On the circle layer, selections, select all, float, defloat and copy and paste paper of choice, I used Paper 13. Selections invert and delete on your keyboard. While my circle layer was still selected I copied and pasted a part of a tube into the circle as well and hit delete on my keyboard to get rid of the excess. Selections, select none. I then changed the blend mode on that tube layer to luminance legacy. Delete the original circle layer and drop shadow your new circle layer.
I then closed off my white background layer and both mask layers and merged visible. Open back up the layers you just closed off. On your merged layer, image, resize, width and height 115. Make sure you dont have all layers checked.
Copy and paste your tube and add drop shadow of choice.

CLICK ON TAG TO VIEW FULL SIZE

For this tutorial I am using the amazing works of Pinup Toons which you can purchase from CILM HERE.
I am using an awesome scrap kit called Spring Into Happiness from Jessica and you can visit her blog HERE. It is a PTU kit so I can not supply it. But please go to her site and check out this kit along with the many other beautiful kits she has. There is so much more to this spring kit than you see in my tag.
Template #43 from Beth at Blissfully Beth and you can download the template from her blog HERE.
Mask 09 by Yarrow that you can get from her site HERE.
Lets get started.
On your template #43 delete copy right layer.
Drop shadow your O frame and your black stripes with a drop shadow of choice.
On your bottom white layer copy and paste a paer of choice above this layer. I used SIH_paper15_JD. Then go to layers, new mask layer, from image, from your drop down menu choose Mask 09 by Yarrow, click OK. On your layers pallet on the right click on your original mask and merge group. I lowered the opacity and resized mine a bit but thats totally up to you.
On your O frame background, selections, select all, float, defloat and copy and paste paper of choice, I used SIH_paper11_JD. Go to selection, invert and hit delete on your keyboard. Selections, select none and delete frame background layer.
Using your magic wand click inside the lighter gray area of your stripe1 layer. Copy and paste paper of choice. Selections, invert, delete. Selections, select none. Using your magic wand again, click inside the darker gray area of your stripe1 layer. Add new raster layer and flood fill with black. Selections, select none. Delete your original stripe1 layer and bring your color paper below the black frame layer and add drop shadow of choice to the black frame layer. Do this same process for stripe layer2 and 3, using different colors and not forgetting to add the back frame layer along with bringing the color layer under the frame layer and adding the drop shadow.
On the top layer add your tube as a new layer, resize to your liking and add drop shadow of choice. i chose to duplicate mine and bring one below the frame O layer and erased parts of it so it looked like she was weaving in and out of the O. This part is totally up to you and takes a little play to get right.
You can then add and if need be resize any elements of choice. I used SIH_ribbonwithflowers1_JD and SIH_wordartsticker1_JD. But there are so may more elements that you can add to yours. Add drop shadows of choice to your elements.
Add your copy right info. Add your name. All done!!!
Hope you've enjoyed this tut.
