Thank you for taking the time to do my tutorial. I hope you enjoy it, and would love to see your results, and receive your feedback! This tutorial was written by Mellie on June 12, 2014 and is copyright to me, the way I word thing's and the images that I use. All other images are copyright to their respective owners, including tubes/art, font, scrapkits and templates and should not be used without purchasing or written permission, nor without reading their terms of use. This tutorial is for education purposes only and is in no way intended to be used as any other purpose. This tutorial was written with the tube and kit in mind that is being shown, therefore, you may have to adjust your setting's should you choose to use images not suggested here, in this tutorial. For this tutorial, you will need to know several things. Paint Shop Pro (I am using version X), and a good working knowledge of how to operate it, layer palettes and plug-in filters, masks, templates...etc. I will also assume that you add your desired drop shadows to each and every layer. :)

You will need the following in order to duplicate my tag:

Kit by MontiScrap at CDO
Tube by Pin Up Toons at CDO
Font - Segoe Print
Mask 89 

Let's begin!

1) Open the mask. Open paper 2, duplicate (shift + D) and close he original. Apply mask, layers>merge>group. Image>resize 75%.

2) Open frame 1, copy/paste onto your canvas and close the original. Resize as desired. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame, and go to selections>modify>expand 3 pixels, add a new layer and fill with paper 2 at 50% size. Deselect and drag this layer below the frame layer.

3) Open element 5, copy/paste and close original, resize as desired. Position behind the frame, but above the mask layers. Repeat process with element 17, only position opposite the wolf. :)

4) Open your tube, copy/paste as new, top layer and resize as desired. I used my magic wand tool to select the area inside the frame layer, and then clicked my tube layer and selections>invert, to erase the pixels stuck outside of the frame. I wanted her to appear to be coming out of the frame. Deselect.

5) Open element 2, copy/paste as a new layer, just below the frame but above the tree layer. Resize as desired.

6) For the next step, I made a sort of cluster area on the bottom right of the frame. I used elements 21, 23 (mirror), 14, 8 and 20, in that order. I resized as needed and arranged. You can view my image as a guide.

7) Now, open the word art element, copy/paste as a new layer. Resize as desired and position to the bottom left.

8) Almost done! Add your name to the tag and your copyright information. Merge layers visible, copy/paste as new image and save as. That's it, you're done :)
Thank you for doing this tutorial. I'm glad you stopped by. I hope to have more tutorials in the near future, so keep checking back. :)
