Xmas Diva

This is what we will be making

For this tutorial your going to need

Paint Shop Pro

EyeCandy3

A Tube of your Choice

My tile

just right click and save to your own hard drive

Font i used is Saint Petersburg you can find it here

if your new to paint shop pro this Screen Shot of the tools will come in handy ..just right click on it and save to your own hard drive

you will also notice i have a lot of words underlined they are links to more screen shots to help you :o)

ok are we ready to get started :o)

open up your psp and open a new workspace about 600 by 600 we can always resize later

set your stroke to null, any colour for the fill will do as we will be changing it

grab your text tool from the taskbar and click in your workspace and use these settings see pic below

you will now have something that resembles this picture, see pic below

the arrows i put in are pointing to liitle boxes if you place your cursor over these boxes you will notice you get a double arrow, now click on the box but don’t let go! keep holding and drag your text out, you can repeat this procedure for the boxes at the top and bottom until you get the desired height and width you like

after you have done that go up to layers on taskbar and scroll down to convert to raster layer and click

open up the striped tile background i supplied and minimize it for now

go up to selections and scroll down to select all and click then go back up to selections and click on float

now go up to selections on taskbar scroll down to modify then across to expand and click…another box will appear..put 3 in the box

now fill the text with red the one i choose was #C70E13 then go back up to selections and down to modify but this time go across to contract and put 1 in the box

now go over to your colour palette and click on your pattern now click inside the pattern fill box and another box will appear… as you can see from that pic the red arrow is pointing to a black arrow.. click on that and it will open up all the patterns you have, scroll to the top of the patterns and there you should see the striped tile pattern i supplied, now click on it then use the same settings as the pic above

now grab your flood fill and right click inside the floating text, your text should now be filled with the striped tile pattern :o)

now we want to apply a inner bevel go to effects scroll down to plugin filters then across to eyecandy3 and click on inner bevel apply these settings see pic below

now we want to go to eyecandy again only this time click on dropshadow instead of inner bevel with these settings see pic below

now open the tube and press shift and the letter d to make another copy and close the original, delete the watermark layer

now go to edit and copy and go back to the workspace with your name on it and right click inside it and click paste as new layer

resize your tube by 80% see my settings here

now arrange your name and tube where you would like them to be apply eyecandy dropshadow to the tube, same settings as before, you might have to re-adjust your tube again

grab your presets shape tool so we can draw a star with these settings, make sure your stroke is set at null, for your background colour you could either use the striped tile or a solid colour its entirely up to you, now draw your star,

go to layers on taskbar and scroll down to convert to raster layer and click

apply the same eyecandy inner bevel then the same eyecandy dropshadow

you can now eitheir draw a cirle to hang your star with your pencil draw or you can use preset shapes again, i have tried both but must admit using preset shapes is easier :o)

grab your preset shapes again only this time select elipse with the same settings as before only this time i set background at null and stroke set to solid colour i choose red, when your drawing your circle don’t draw a full one see pic below

go to layers on taskbar and scroll down to convert to raster layer and click

add a dropshadow to your circle then hang it over a letter of your name like so

now we want to erase some of the circle so it looks like it wrapped over the text, so grab your eraser tool making sure the size is set to 1, you might need to zoom in a bit so you can see better, see pic below

now move your star up so it looks like its hanging from the circle,

now merge visible and resize if you wish, at this point you could take it into animation shop and save as a gif file, as you can see from my preview on the first page saving it as a jpeg distorts the colour a bit.

now sit back and admire your new tag :o)

In most of my tutorials if not all i use various artists images some i have permission to use and some i have paid a liscence for usage, under no circumstances would i claim or would claim © to these images i have used in my tutorials, they are soley © to the artists themselves

i created this tag in dreamsuite bonus but wanted to recreate it using basic tools in paint shop pro so you wouldn’t be limited to one background

This is the one i made in Dreamsuite

This is the One i recreated and will be making in this tut

For this tutorial your going to need

Paint Shop Pro

My Supplies

Font i used is 911 Porscha (3rd one down)

No filters needed :o)

Thanks to Monica for giving permission to use her template :o) please keep monicas filename intact

i have added a lot of screenshots for anyone thats new to psp, you will notice alot of the words are underlined they are linked to the screenshots for you i hope this helps :o)

ok lets get started:o)

Open the template and the frame tubes in psp, minimize your template we will come back to that in a minute

go to your frame tube and make sure your on the frame layer, if your layer palette isn’t showing go to a empty space on the top taskbar and right click, a box will appear.. click on layer palette

now grab your magic wand with these settings see pic below

Now we want to start clicking inside of all the frames while holding down the shift key (being carefull not to select the frame itself) until it looks something like this see pic below

Now go up to Selections and scroll down to modify then across to expand and click.. another box will appear put 2 in the box , now add a new raster layer

minimize your frames and go to your template, press your shift key and the letter D on your keyboard which will give you another copy of your template…close the original

make sure the watermark layer is highlighted on your layer palette, right click on the watermark layer on your layer palette and another box will appear click on delete

now go up to edit on your taskbar and scroll down to copy and click

go back to your frames, right click inside the frames and click on paste into selection or go up to edit scroll down to paste then across to into selection now deslect your fames

we want to move this layer down one so it sits under your frame layer

make sure your on layer 2 then go up to effects and scroll down to enhance photo then across to Automatic Contrast Enhancement with these settings

now click on the glasses on your background layer then highlight your frame layer on the layer palette and right click on it and merge visible

now add a drop shadow with these settings or your preferred settings(effects scroll down to 3d effects then across to dropshadow)

i selected inside of all the frames with my lasso tool and used automatic saturation enhancement with settings of Bias normal and strength weak to make it a bit more colourfull as the dropshadow dulls it a bit but its totally optional :o)

now un x out your background layer so its showing

add a new layer for your text with these settings

apply a dropshadow with these settings

now Deselect your text. you can now merge your layers visible at this point or add the pink strip i supplied by going up to edit then scroll down to copy and click… then go to your template and right click inside it and click paste as a new layer and move it down under your text then mergle visible and save your tag as a jpeg file

now sit back and admire your new tag 🙂
