Drops of Love



This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need

Scrapkit. I am using a PTU kit called Tear Drops of Love by Foxy at http://foxysdesignz.blogspot.com/. You can purchase the kit here: http://www.fall3nangel.com/store/


Tube of choice. I am using the work of Keith Garvey, you must purchase a license from MPT, http://www.mypsptubes.com/, to use his work.

Lets begin.New Image-600x600-transparent.

Paste a paper of choice as a new layer. If needed resize by going to image resize- i usually start with 85%. Make sure all layers is unchecked and lock aspect ratio is checked.If the paper is still too big, repeat this step until it is the right size.

Paste a frame as a new layer. I used a heart frame. If needed, resize either using the method we used above, or you can use the pick tool, the little arrow tool, and drag the box byone of the corners to the size you want it.

Choose a paper for the inside of the frame. Click on your background paper layer and paste the paper you chose as a new layer.

Grab your magic wand tool, Set it to the freehand mode. selection type is freehand, mode is add, feather 0, smoothing 0, anti-alias checked.

Draw a selection carefully the same shape as your frame but slightly larger then the inside of the frame without going over the outside edge.Selections-invert. Make sure your paper layer is active and hit delete. Select none.

Give the frame layer a drop shadow of choice.

Paste your tube as a new layer. If it is a sitting tube like mine, postition toward the bottom of the frame. Resize if needed. See my tag for reference.

Paste one of the cushions as a new layer. If needed, resize. Move this layer below your tube layer and position at the bottom of the frame so it looks like your tube is sitting on it. See my tag for reference.

Paste the envelope as a new layer. Position to one side of your frame. If needed resize it. Move this layer below the frame and frame paper and position so it sticks out of the side. Againsee my tag for reference. Duplicate this layer and go image mirror. Now you should have one on each side.

Paste one of the bears as a new layer. Make sure this layer is above the frame and tube layer.Resize if needed. Position on the left side in the middle of the cushion and envelope. See my tag for placement.

On the opposite side of the frame, paste a heart in the middle of the envelope and the cushion, and move it below the tube layer.

Paste one of the bows as a new layer. Resize, and position in the top center of the frame. See my tag for reference.

Choose one of the charms and paste as a new layer. Resize and position at the top left side of the frame. Once happy with it, duplicate and go image mirror. You should now have one on each side.

Paste the raindrops as a new layer. Move this below the frame layer. Resize and position as i have mine. You may need to use the eraser tool to erase any bits that hang out of the frame.

Give your tube layer a drop shadow of choice.

Now hide your paper background layer and go layers-merge visible.

Duplicate this merged layer. Give the duplicate a drop shadow of choice.

On the original, go to effects-reflection effects-kaleidoscope. Image area settings are -100, -100, 355, 90. Kaleidoscope settings are 6,0,29. edge mode is wrap.

Right click on this layer and lower the opacity to about 50.

Now is the time if you wish to resize your whole tag to do so. Just use the image-resize method, make sure all layers is checked this time.

Now add your copyright so it is clearly visible.

Add your name. Give it a drop shadow.

I also added noise to my layer that was kaleidoscoped. Go to adjust, add noise, and choose the percentage you like.

Thats it, you are done.

Do You Believe

here is another tutorial with no scraps used



This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need
Tube of choice. I am using the work of Sue Dawe, you must purchase a license from CILM,
http://www.cilm.com/, to use her work.

Mask of choice, i used sg_fairyland-frame by Essex Girl. You can find her masks here
http://www.essexgirl.uk.com/sg_masks.htm.

Filters: DSB flux- bubbles, Eye Candy 3.1- glass, Fantastic Machines -paint engine

Lets Begin.

New Image-600x600-tranparent.

New raster layer. Flood fill with white.

Get your preset shape tool and find a heart shape. Width is 10, create as vector and anti alias checked. Draw out a decent size heart. See my tag for reference.

Paste your tube as a new layer. Position the part you want to show through the heart. Resize if needed by using the little pick tool, which is the arrow tool, and drag the box by one of the corners to the size you want.

Make your heart layer active. Grab your magic wand, mode is add, match mode is rgb, tolerance 20, feather 0, anti-alias and contiguous checked. Click in the center of you heart shape. Selections-modify-expand by about 3.Selections-invert. Now if you are using a unicorn tube or something similar, do not hit delete. Grab your eraser tool, size about 32, and Make your tube layer active. Do not erase the front hooves or paws or whatever, only erase the other parts that stick out. See on my tag i erased the back hooves and tail parts but left the front so it looks like it is coming out of the heart. If you are using a different tube, then just simply hit delete, and Select none. Move the tube layer below the heart layer.

Right click on your heart layer and convert to raster.

Grab your magic wand again, same settings. Click inside the border of the heart, the colored part. Go to effects, plugins, eye candy 3.1-glass. Width 9, spacing 30, thickness 30, opacity 50, refraction 30, glass colormid to dark grey, i used #808080, brightness 100, size 40, direction 127, inclination 76.

Select none. Now click again inside the center of the heart. Selections-modify-expand by 3.
Make your white background active and add a new layer. Flood fill the inside of the heart with a color or gradient of choice.

Keep selected and use the same glass effect we used above. It will look different. Select none.

Make your tube layer active. Give it a drop shadow. I used -3,0.100,8,black.

Hide your background layer, the white layer, by clicking the little eye next to it. Now make one of the visible layers active and right click on it and choose merge visible. Now unhide your white background.

Add a new layer. Flood fill with a color or gradient of choice. Go to effects, plugins, fantastic machines paint engine. Just click random until you find one you like.

Now go to layers, load/save mask, load from disk, in the drop down box, find your mask, source luminance, hide all, and fit to canvas all checked. apply.

Right click on the mask layer and choose merge group.

Now duplicate your merged heart layer. On the original, go to effects, plugins, dsb flux bubbles. Settings are 21,50,50,51. Resize this layer by going to image, resize, choose 95%, and make sure all layers is unchecked.If there are any bits you dont like the looks of, use the eraser brush to erase them.

Duplicate the heart layer with the tube in it. Using your pick tool, the little arrow tool, drag by one of the corners till it is a small size. Place this in the lower right corner. See my tag for size and placement. Duplicate this smaller one and go image mirror.Now you should have one in each corner.

Grab your text tool, choose a scripty font, and type out the words Do You Believe..., or a saying of choice.Give this layer the same glass effect we used above. Give a drop shadow of choice. I used -2,-2,100,5, and black.

Now is the time to resize your entire tag if you think it is too big. Go to image, resize, in the first drop down box choose pixels instead of percent. Make sure lock aspect ratio is checked. Now change the height and width to the size you want. When you change one,the other will automaticly adjust.

Now add your copyright so it is clearly visible.

Add your name. Convert to raster. I used eye candy 3.1 inner bevel on mine. I just played with the settings till i found one i liked. Then give it a drop shadow of choice.

Thats it, you are done.

Here is my brand new tutorial with no kits at all called MoonShine. Click on the tag to see it full sized. Thank you to my dear friend kitty for inspiring me to get back into writing my own tutorials!

Photobucket


This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need:

PSP

Animation shop

Tube of choice. I am using the work of Jessica Galbreth, you must purchase a license from CILM,
http://www.cilm.com/, to use her work.

Filters: Fantastic machines paint engineDSB flux-bubbles and bright noiseEye Candy 4000 or 3.1

Lets begin. New image-600x600-transparent.

Flood fill with white.

New layer, flood fill with a color or gradient of choice to compliment your tube.

Go to effects-plugins-fantastic machines-paint engine. You can just click random till you find one you like or use my settings:under brush- .58,.9,.00,.88,.8,.00-effect-.78, wrap edges unchecked- under stroke-type is uphill, input checked, .28,1.16,-120,120,144,-155direction channel select R.

Grab your preset shape tool. Choose the half moon1 shape or another half moon shape you may have. Create as vector and anti-alias checked,line style is solid,width is 6. Choose two colors or gradients lighter than your paper. Draw out your shape and position to the left of the tag. See my tag for reference of size.

Now right click on this layer and convert to raster. Selections-select all-selections-float. Then go selctions-modify-contract by 6. Again, go to selections float. Keep selected.

Effects-3d effects-cutout- offset is -5,-5, opacity 100, blur 36, shadow color-choose a slightly darker color than your shape, fill interior unchecked. Select none.

Back to your preset shapes, find a star shape. Use the same colors and settings as you did for the moon. Draw out a star. Position it so it sits kind of inside the empty spacenext to the moon. See my tag for reference. Convert to raster.

Now follow the same steps we used on the moon to do the cutout effect.
Merge the moon and star together by right clicking on whichever one is the top layer and choose merge down.

Duplicate the moon and star layer. On the original Go to effects-reflection effects-kaleidoscope- Image area settings are -72,68,157,90, Kaleidoscope settings are 8,0,30, edge mode is wrap.

Give this layer a drop shadow of 0,0,54,15,black.

Duplicate this layer again. On the original, go to effects-plugins-dsb flux-bubbles-all settings at 50.

On your moon and star layer, give it a gradient glow or a glow by going to plugins-eye candy-I used 4000 but you can also use a plain glow in eye candy 3.1. In 4000, I used a size of under basic, i used a glow width of 5, soft corners 65, and 100 for opacity, draw only outside checked. Under color the opacity is 100, I chose the fat setting, you may or may not have to go back and fix you basic settings after choosing fat, I made the first color tag a darker color that complimented my shape, the second tab a very light color, and i added a third tab the same as the second, but you can play around and do it how you like.If you use eye candy 3.1, i would use a width of 10, opacity 100, opacity drop off is fat, draw everywhere unchecked, and use a very light color.

Duplicate your moon and star layer twice for a total of 3. On the top one, go to selections-select all-float-then defloat- selections-modify-contract by about 15. Selections invert-selections float-then defloat. Now the outline and the glow of this layer should have the little marching ants around it. Keep selected.

Effects-plugins-dsb flux-bright noise-56 and mix. Keep selected and hide this layer by clickin the little eye next to it. Make the next moon and star layer active, repeat the bright noise filter but this time click the mix button once. Hide this layer and make the last moon and star layer active and again repeat the bright noise and click mix twice this time. Selections-select none.

Now add your tube, resize if needed either by going image-resize and start with about 85%, all layers unchecked, or you can use the little arrow tool and resize it by dragging one of the corners till it is the size you want. Position where you likeor how i have mine. Give it a drop shadow. I used 2,5,75,9, black.

Now is the time to resize your entire tag if you think it is too big. Go to image resize-choose your percentage or you can change the box to pixels and make sure that lock aspect ratio is checked, then choose the size you want it to be, make sure alllayers is also checked.

Now add your copyright so it is clearly visible.

Add your name. Give it a glow of choice, then a drop shadow of choice.

Now we are going to animate. Make sure the two moon and star layers we hid earlier are still hidden. Click on the visible layer. Go to edit, copy merged. Now open animation shop and paste as new animation. Back in psp, hide the visible layer, and unhidethe next moon and star layer and click on it to make it the active layer. Go edit, copy merged. Back to animation shop, edit, paste after current frame. One more time, back to psp, hide this layer and unhide the last moon and star layer and make it active. Edit,copy merged, back in animation shop, paste after current frame. Click view animation and save and your done.

Chocolate Vinson




This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need: Scrapkit. I am using a PTU kit called Teal, Chocolate and Cream by Melisa. You can purchase the kit here http://cottoncandykreations.com/shop/

Tube(s) of choice. I chose 6 tubes. I am using the work of Caron Vinson. You must purchase a license from CILM, http://www.cilm.com/, to use her work.

Lets begin.

New image-600x600-tranparent.

Flood fill with white.

Choose a paper for your background layer. Paste as a new layer. Resize if needed by going to image-resize-about 85%-all layers unchecked. You can repeat this step if needed.

Choose a frame. I used a triple frame. Paste as a new layer and resize if needed. Duplicate this frame. Position one of them toward the top of your tag and one toward thebottom. Once happy with the positioning, right click on the top one and go merge down.

Choose a paper for the inside of the frames. Grab your magic wand, mode is add-match mode is rgb-tolerance 20-feather 0- anti-alias and contiguous checked, outside.Click in the center of each frame. Selections-modify-expand by 3. Paste your paper as a new layer. Selections-invert-delete. Select none. Move this layer below the frame layer.

Now for the tubes that go inside the frames, you can either use the same tube, just different parts, or you can do as i have and use different tubes. Paste the tubeyou want to use in the first frame. Position so the face, or part you want, shows through the frame. Resize if needed. Make sure this layer is below the frame layer but above the paper. Grab your magic wand, same settings as before, and making sure the frame layer is active, click inside the first frame. Selections-modify-expand by 3.Now make your tube layer active and go selections-invert-hit delete. Select none. Give this layer a drop shadow. Repeat these steps for any other frames you have.

Once your are done with the tubes, give the frame layer a drop shadow.

Now add your main tube. A sitting or laying one works best. Position how you like or how i have mine. Resize if needed. Give it a drop shadow. I used -1,-1,100,10,black.

Copy and paste a doodle as a new layer. Move this layer to just above the background paper. Resize to your liking and position to one side of your tag how you like. Once happy,duplicate and position on the other side to your liking. Give them both a drop shadow of choice.

Paste a bracket type frame as a new layer. Resize and position to the right side of your tag in the center. See my tag for reference.Grab your selection tool and change the type to rounded rectangle, that is the shape of my frame so that is what i used, mode is add, feather 0, anti-alias checked. Draw out a rectanglethe same size as your frame without going over the edges, this may take a few tries to get it just right. Keep selected.

Choose another paper and paste as a new layer, resize if needed and go selections-invert-delete. Select none. Move this paper layer below the frame layer. Give the frame a drop shadow of choice.

Paste a pendant or charm as a new layer. Resize to fit on the frame. Position on the right side of the bracket frame so it looks as though it is hanging from the corner. You may need to use your eraser to erase just a tiny bit of the metal circle so it looks as though it is hooked on the frame. See my tag for reference. Give a drop shadow.

Grab your text tool and type your name inside the bracket frame. Make sure you this layer is above the paper for the frame. Give it a drop shadow, i used -1,-1,100,10 and black.

Add any other embellishments your wish.

Now is the time if you wish to resize your entire tag to do so. Go to image resize-choose your percentage and make sure all layers and lock aspect ratio is checked.

Now add your copyright so it is clearly legible.

Save and you are done.

Treasured Moments



This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need:


Scrapkit. I am using a kit called Treasured Hearts by Foxy from Foxys Designz. You can purchase this kit at Digital Chaos here http://www.fall3nangel.com/store/

Tube of choice. I am using the work of Caron Vinson. You must purchase a license from CILM, http://www.cilm.com/, to use her work.

Frame type Mask of choice. I am using mask_89 from PSP-Pals, you can find them here http://psp-pals.com/ Save your mask in your psp masks folder.


Lets begin.New image-600x600-transparent.

Flood fill with white.

Paste a paper of choice as a new layer. If your paper is too big, resize by going to image-resize-I start with about 85%. Make sure all layers is unchecked.If it is still too big you can repeat this process.

Go to layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk, in the drop down box find your mask, source luminance, fit to canvas, hide all mask, and invert transpaprency all checked.Right click on you mask layer and merge group. Give this layer a drop shadow. I used 0,0,100,5,black.

Now choose another paper for the inside of the frame mask. Grab your magic wand, mode is add, match mode is color, tolerance 20, feather 0, anti-alias and contiguous both checked. Click in the center of the mask layer, where the empty space is. Paste your paper as a new layer and go selections, invert, and hit delete. Select none. Move this layer below the mask layer.

Paste your tube as a new layer. Do not resize this one. Position to one side of your tag so the part you want is showing through the frame. Once happy, double click this layer and change the layer properties to luminance(legacy). Now make your mask layer active again and with your magic wand, click inside the empty space like we did for the paper. Keep selected and make your tube layer active. Selections, invert, delete. Select none.

Now paste your original tube again as a new layer. Grab your deformation tool, also known as the pick tool, and then grab one of the corners of the box around your tube layer and drag it proportionately to a size that fits nicely inside the frame mask. See my tag for reference.Give this layer a drop shadow.

Choose a flower and paste as a new layer in one of the top corners of the frame mask. Resize to your liking. Duplicate it and go image mirror. This should put the duplicate on the opposite corner. Duplicate this one and go image flip. Now you should have one on the bottom corner also. One more time, duplicate and go image mirror. Now there should be one in each corner of the frame mask.

Copy and paste one of the butterflys as a new layer. Resize to your liking. Position on one side of your frame how you like, or see my tag for placement. Once happy, duplicate and mirror, and move this one up slightly.Again, see my tag for placement.

Paste on of the feathers as a new layer. Resize and rotate it using the pick or deformation tool and place to one side along the bottom of the frame mask, how i have mine. Once happy, duplicate and mirror. Move both of these layers under the flower layers.

Open the bow that looks like a fan. Paste as a new layer. Resize and position along the bottom of the frame mask in the middle. See my tag for placement. Move this layer below the feathers if it is not already there.now duplicate twice and position one to each side of the middle one. Move the middle one above the other two. Give only the middle one a drop shadow.

Now is the time to resize your whole tag if you think it is too big. Go to image-resize-choose your percentage and make sure all layers is checked.

Now add your copyright so it is clearly legible.

Now add your name. Give it a drop shadow. Save and your done.
