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.
Tube: I'm using the rockin' Vince 2 from Kittrose,
which you can find at Artistic Reality Talent.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license
to do so & have purchased the tube.
Scrapkit: I'm using a PTU kit named Guitar Star 2
from Tamie at Addictive Pleasures.
Filters: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Fonts: Downcome for the word art
Jailbird Jenna for the name
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 2 2 50 5.
Let's do this! =)
Save your progress often.;)
Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Add the first frame from the kit onto your canvas.
Resize 85%. Move down in your canvas a bit.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert. Copy & paste p1.
Resize 70%. Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Move your frame above the paper.
Then add a drop shadow to your frame.
Next, copy & paste your tube above the frame.
Resize about 62%. Position so it sits right
in the center of the frame. Add a drop shadow.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.
Wire2- Resize 90%. Send to bottom.
guitar- 55%. Rotate 17 left.
guitar4- 50%. Rotate 17 left.
guitarpick2- 30% Rotate 12 right.
pass2- 30% Rotate 15 right.
Use your lasso to go around the string at the top.
Hit delete & select none.
musicnote- 40%. Rotate 10 left.
Add any other elements you want at this time
to make the tag more 'yours'.
Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Now add your word art of choice.
Add a bevel:
Add a gradient glow:
Then give it a drop shadow.
Now, add your name. Add the same bevel.
Give it a gradient glow:
Then add a drop shadow.
Finally, merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy.
