PTU- When Love Starts To Die

* Click for bigger

I'd written this tutorial shortly after I'd made the kits.
I'd seen the artwork from Alex Prihodko
& saw how beautifully she'd go with the kit. =)

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 my PTU kit
W.L.S.T.D (When Love Starts To Die)
You can find this kit in all the stores I sell in,
located on the right.

Tube: I'm using the beautiful artwork of Alex Prihodko.
You can find this & more stunning artwork at PicsForDesign.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: Template0029 from me.
Instead of making you chase down the blog post for it,
you can use this handy- dandy download here:

Mask: of choice

Filters: Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 5- Nature: Fire
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Font: Aphrodite Text

Drop shadow: 4 2 50 4, black.
Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Delete the credit layer at the top.
Working from the bottom layer of the template, up:

Paste paper 20 above the bkgrd base layer.
Apply mask of choice & merge group.

Delete this layer & paste paper 7, resized 80%.

Customize the word art & word art background
layers to your own preferences.
Move the word art up & to the left on tag.

Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Position on the left of the tag.
Apply Xero- Porcelain at these settings:
Add a drop shadow.

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

cellphone- 80% Rotate 15 right. Sharpen.
Position on the right.
Move below your tube in layers palette.

roses- 80%
Position with the cellphone.

plushie- 55%. Mirror.
Place by your tube, on the left.

charm- 45%.
Place on the upper left.

candles- 40%. Place on the right.
Add your drop shadow.
Then with your selection tool,
draw around the top part of the wicks
like my example:

Now add some flames with Eye Candy 5- Nature: Fire
at these settings (Small, candle):
Then select none.

skull bow- 50%. Sharpen.
Place in the top right.

capsules- 35%.
Place with the plushie.

inkwell- 50%.
Position in the bottom center.

quill pen- 60%.
Place with the inkwell.

rose- 30%. Sharpen.
Place on the left of the candles.

bottle- 47%.
Place on the left of the plushie.

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 add your name. Next, add a bevel:
Then add a gradient glow:
And a drop shadow.

Finally, delete the white background,
merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy.

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