PTU- What's Your Fetish?

*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 a hot kit from Tasha's Playground.
This is her part of the awesome Toxic Fetish collab 
that can only be found at The PSP Project.
Tube: I'm using the amazing artwork of Keith Garvey.
You can find more of his hot artwork by visiting 
his store at Garv-Girls PSP Tubes.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Mask(s): a nice grungy of choice
& an optional text mask
Filters: Xero-Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow
Font: Art Studio
Drop shadow: 2 2 50 4, black 
Save your progress often.;)
Let's do this! =)
Open a new canvas 600 X 600 px.
Copy & paste paper5. Apply your mask & merge group.
* I also pasted paper paper4 on top of the mask layer
& applied a second mask that was just text.;)
Next, add the cage. Resize 90%. 
Rotate 10 right. Add a drop shadow.
Open up frame2. Copy & paste. Resize 65%.
Place off to the left. Using your magic wand, 
click inside each part of the frame. 
Selections- Modify & expand by 4. Invert. 
Copy & paste paper1, resizing 75%.
Hit delete & keep selected.
Now add your tube or closeup to each selection.
Hit delete on each. Select none.
Crop to canvas & erase any excess as needed
on the tube layers. Now, merge those tube layers 
down onto each other. Duplicate. On the top one, add a 
Gaussian blur of 3. Change the blend mode to Soft Light.
On the bottom one, change the blend mode Luminance (L).
Add a drop shadow. Move your frame above your paper & 
tube layers and add a drop shadow.
Now, add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Apply Xero-Porcelain:
Finally, add a drop shadow to your tube.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one, I added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.
scatter- Move below your tube in layers palette.
Place near the bottom of tag.
heart trio- 65%. Rotate 10 left.
Place on top left of the cage.
star box- 35%
Place on the left.
skull spray- Mirror. 50%
Place on left on top of the star box.
spikey bomb- 45%
Place on the right.
nailed heart- 55%. Rotate 12 right. 
Place on right side of cage.
gasmask- 47%
Place just off to the left, in front of your tube.
choker- 37%. Rotate 22 right.
Hang this off on the top right corner of the cage.
sparkle1- 90%. Sharpen.
No drop shadow. ;)
Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.
Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Now add your name.  
Add a gradient glow at these settings: 
 Then add your drop shadow to this layer.
Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy. =)
I hope you enjoy trying this tutorial &
 have a lot of fun with Tasha's kit. =)
