PTU- Innocence

*Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed:
Scrapkit is My Angel Above from Stef at Stef's Scrapkits
This is a PTU kit & is part of a beautiful exclusive collab at SATC.

Template: Template7 from the always awesome Angi Rique.

Mask: MB and SW Mask 20 from MoonBeams & Spiderwebs.
* Make sure to leave some love when downloading the temp & mask.;)

Tube: of choice. I am using the lovely artwork of Dark Yarrow, named Innocence. 
You can find this & many others from at Dreamscape Imaging
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 

Font: Anglican Text.
Let's do this! =)

Save your progress often.
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 4 -4 48 4.

Each time I add my papers, I crop my tag to canvas (CTC)-
(surround the whole tag when cropping) before adding gradient glows & drop shadows.
This eliminates those nasty 'phantom shadows' on the edges of your tag.;)

Open up the template. Duplicate it & close original. 
Delete the credit layer at the top.
Resize the the template so it's 600 X 600 px.
Working from the bottom of the template up:

On the LeftRowDots- Selections- select all. Float-defloat. New raster layer. 

Using your airbrush, colour the dots # 8d83b5.
Select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip.
Delete the RightRowDots & original LeftRowDots layers.

TopLeftTexturedSquare- Selections- select all. Float- defloat. Invert.
Delete layer in layers & copy paste pap10, resized 60%.
Hit delete & select none. Crop tag to canvas. 
Duplicate this layer. Mirror & flip. 
Delete BottomRightTexturedSquare.
Add a drop shadow to both your papered layers.

CenterSquare- Selections-select all. Float- defloat. Invert.
Delete layer in layers & copy paste pap02 resized 65%.
Hit delete & select none. Add a drop shadow.

BottomLeftCircle- First, move this in more so it's not so close to the edge.
Selections-select all. Float- defloat. Invert.
Delete layer in layers & copy paste pap03, resized 60%.
Hit delete & keep selected. Add your closeup, resized to 50%.
Hit delete & select none. CTC & change the opacity of your tube to 45%.
Add a thin gradient glow set at 3 to your circle layer:
 & then drop shadow.

Use the same paper for the TopRightCircle, resized at 60%. 
Add the same gradient glow & drop shadow.

Next, delete the CenterCircle layer.
Copy & paste your closeup as a new image.
Apply MB and SW Mask 20 & merge group. 
Copy & paste this merged tube mask.
Resize about 85%. Drop the opacity to about 80% 
& change the blend mode to Luminance (L)
Drag this layer so it's below your circle layers in the layers palette.

Now, copy & paste your main tube. Apply Xero: Radiance at these settings:
The add a drop shadow.

Now it's time for some elements.
ele55- place this so that it 'shines' over your masked tube: 
Drag it below your right circle layer in the layers palette. 
Then position it so the top of it under the right circle layer.

ele20- Resize 60%. Move to the bottom of the tag.
 Drag this layer below your tube layer in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow.

ele62- Copy & paste so it's below your tube in layers palette.
Resize 60%. Add a drop shadow. Position on the right of your tag.

ele45- Resize 37%. Place this so it sits on top of the bottom left circle.
Add a drop shadow.

ele64- Resize 60%. Sharpen & add a drop shadow. 
Place over on the bottom left in front of the circle.

ele51- Resize 23%. Put this little guy on top of the 'note' on the left.
Add a drop shadow.

ele37- Resize 45%. Move to the top left corner. Add a drop shadow.
ele72- Resize 60%. Sharpen & add a drop shadow. Move to the top left corner.

ele61- Resize 45%. Sharpen & add a drop shadow. Place this on the lower right.

Next, add your proper copyrights & watermarks. 
Then add your name. Duplicate. On the top layer, add an inner bevel:
On the bottom, add a gradient glow:
Then give it a little sparkle with some noise: Uniform/ Monochrome/ 65%.
Add a drop shadow.

Delete the white background layer at the bottom.
Merge all layers visible & save as a PNG. All finished. =)

I have to give one to Angi, too:

I hope you enjoyed trying this tutorial. 
I'd love to see your results. =)
