PTU- Dotty 4 You

*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 X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using Dotty For You from Tasha's Playground.
You can find information on where to buy this kit on her
blog here.

Tube: I'm using the always gorgeous artwork of Barbara Jensen.
You can find more of her beautiful artwork here.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Mask: Mask 71 from ButterflyFlutterby Creations
You can find that here.
Leave some love when downloading the mask.

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy Imapct 5- Gradient Glow

Font: Alexandra Script

Drop shadows: 0 0 50 5, black for the frames
-2 2 40 4, black for everything else.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 615 X 615 px.
Copy & paste paper11. Apply the mask & merge group.
Resize the mask 110%.

Next, add frame6. 
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 35. Invert.
Copy & paste paper6, resized 70%.
Hit delete & select none.
Move the paper below the frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to the frame: 0 0 50 5, black

Now add frame7. Resize 60%. Rotate 8 left & place to the left
of the other frame. With your magic wand, click inside both squares.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert. Copy & paste paper3, resized 70%. 
Hit delete. Keep selected & add your tube to both squares,
hitting delete on both. Select none & crop to canvas.
Erase the excess from both tubes in the squares of the frame.
Merge one down onto the other.
Drop the opacity down to 75%.
Move this & the paper below the frame in layers palette.
Then add a drop shadow to the frame.

Add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Apply Xero: Radiance at these settings:
Add a drop shadow to your tube: -2 2 40 4, black.

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

paint2- 70%. Place at the top of the frame. 
Move to just above the mask in layers palette. 
No drop shadow.

dots- 50%. Position over by the 2nd frame.
Duplicate. Mirror & flip. Move this one below your main tube
in layers palette.

flower3- 70%. Place in top corner of 2nd frame.

ribbon2- 65%. Place around the bottom of frame 2.

hearts2- 60%. Move to the bottom left of frame 2
with the ribbon. Move below the ribbon in layers palette.
* Optional- you can erase a bit of the ribbon like on my example, here:

cupcake- 55% Move to the right of the tag.

envelope- 40% Rotate 30 left. Place in front of the cupcake.

candy hearts- Use your deform tool to rotate them around.
duplicate each & create another cluster by the cupcake.

wordart2- 60% Use your lasso to draw a selection around the word 'dotty'.
Promote this selection to a new layer & on the bottom layer hit delete.
Select none. On the bottom 'for you' word layer, 
add your drop shadow. On the 'dotty' layer, add a gradient glow:

Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Next, add your name. Rotate 12 left.
Add a gradient glow at these settings:
Duplicate this layer & on the bottom one, 
add the same gradient glow, using this colour: #fed1d2
Add a bit of noise to this layer: 
Uniform/ Monochrome/ 45%. 
Then add your drop shadow to this layer.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.=)

I hope you have fun trying this tutorial.
