PTU- Autumn Romance

* 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: I'm using an beautiful PTU kit from
  Tasha's Playground, named Autumn's Kiss. 
You can find more info where to find it here.

Tube: I'm using the gorgeous art work of 
Freya Langford-Sidebottom. I had gotten this tube 
at PSP Asylum when it was open, but you can now find 
this & all her other amazing tubes at AIL.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Template 141 from Punky Butts Productions.
You can find it here on her blog. 
* Leave some love when snagging the temp. ;)

Glitter(s) of choice- from me here.
* These are 600 X 600 px sheets made at 300 DPI & seamless.
Also included is a set of CU styles made with these sheets. ;)

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Breathe Pro Script

Drop shadow: 2 2 48 4, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open up the template. Duplicate it & close original. 
Delete the 'Font used' info & credit layers at the top.

Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

left square- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste paper2, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip.
Delete right square.

left square frame- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste a glitter sheet of choice, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none. Duplicate. Mirror & flip. 
Add a drop shadow. Delete right square frame.

large circle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper4, resized 70%. 
Hit delete & select none. 

large circle frame- Do the same as the left square frame,
using the same glitter sheet or another of choice 
(just don't resize the sheet).
Crop to canvas & add a drop shadow.

left circle- resize 80%. Select all- float. Defloat- Invert. 
Delete this layer & paste paper7, resized 70%.
Hit delete. Select none. Link it as 2.

left circle frame- resize 80%.
Do the same as the other frames, resizing the sheet 70%.
Link this as 2 also. Now move these to the left so the edge 
of the circle lines up with the thin rectangle. Un-link them. 
Duplicate each & mirror. Add a drop shadow to the frames.

Delete both right circle & right circle frame.

left rectangle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper8, resized 70%.
Hit delete. Keep selected. Add your closeup, 
resized 70%. Hit delete. Select none. Crop to canvas. 
Apply Xero- Radiance to your tube layer:
Duplicate & mirror both the paper & tube layers.

left rectangle frame- do the same as the other frames, 
resizing the glitter sheet 70%. Duplicate & mirror.
Delete the right rectangle & right rectangle frame layers.
Add a drop shadow to your frames.

large rectangle- Select all- float. Defloat- Invert.
Delete this layer & paste paper1, resized 75%.
Hit delete. Keep selected. Add your closeup, resizing 80%.
Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas. Duplicate. 
On the bottom one, change the blend mode to Luminance (L) at 50%.
 No drop shadow. On the top one- Gaussian blur at 3. 
Change the blend mode to Dodge at 35%.

large rectangle frame- same as the other frame layers.
No resizing the sheet.

Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Add a drop shadow.

Romance wordart- Select all- float- defloat.
Delete this layer & flood fill with a gradient:
Angle- 45/ Repeats- 3.
#d7ae42 & #df3540 for the colours.
Select none. Add a bevel:
Link to 1. Add a drop shadow to this layer.

Romance border wordart- Sharpen.
Do the same as above with the Autumn wordart & 
Autumn border wordart layers. Link your flood filled layer to 1.
Move these linked word art layers slightly to the right.

Next we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added 
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.

flowers- 60%. Duplicate & resize the second one 80%. 
Place these behind the word art, to the left.

squirrel- 50% 
Place to the left in front of the word art.

flower1- 55% 
Position in the bottom right corner. 

mouse- 30%. Duplicate. Place one on the word art, 
the other on the bottom right corner on the flower.

clock- 50%. 
Place in the top left corner of the tag.

leaf scatter- rotate 90 right. 
Move below your main tube in layers palette.

bird- 30%. Place to the left, 
below the clock on small rectangle frame.

mushroom1- resize 20%. Duplicate. 
Place one in front of the word art 
& the other behind the flower on the right of the tag.

mushroom2- 20%. Duplicate. 
Place these in front of the word art.

acorn- 25%. Duplicate for a total of 4. 
Place one by the flower.
Mirror two of them. Place 2 in front of the squirrel 
& the last one place in front of the word art.

basket- 45%. Mirror. Place by the flower. 

leaves2- 50%. Now, for my tube, her arm isn't fully 'there', 
making the artwork look 'off', so I duplicated the leaves 
& mirrored it. Then duplicated again & flipped it to create 
a cluster. On the top one- the flipped one- erase the stem 
that overlaps on the other leaves.

apple- 40%. Place in front of the leaves cluster.
Duplicate. Rotate the duplicated one 27 left.

Add any other elements, if you prefer at this time.

Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Next select a glitter sheet of choice for your name.
* If using a script font, you may want to set your stroke 
at .05 & use the same glitter sheet for it, to ensure a nice/
even gradient glow.;)
Next, add a bevel:
Then add a gradient glow:
Now, add your drop shadow.

Merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. 
I hope you enjoyed creating this tutorial.
I'd love to see your results.=)
