This tutorial was written by me on February 4th, 2014 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5 but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using a tube by Elizabeth Caffey. You must purchase her work and obtain the proper licensing. You can do so here

FTU Handmade With Love Add-On kit. You can find it here

Font of choice. I am using Plathand Demo.

Filters:

EyeCandy 4000 Gradient Glow
Xero Radiance

——————–

Open a blank canvas, 600 x 250.

Open pap (1). Resize by 22%. Copy & paste as a new layer.

Add your elements. I chose:

elmt (8) – resize by 15%. Place to the far left. Duplicate, rotate 180 to the right.
elmt (11) – resize by 24%, rotate left. Place to the top, flip horizontal.
elmt (3) – resize by 15%. Place to the bottom right corner. Duplicate, flip and place to the bottom left corner.
elmt (9) – resize by 12%. Place to the far left. Duplicate, mirror, place to the far right.
elmt (5) – resize by 12%. Place to the far left.
elmt (2) – resize by 10%, rotate slightly to the right. Place to the bottom, slightly to the right.
elmt (13) – resize by 12%. Place to the bottom left.
elmt (19) – resize by 8%. Place over the spools of thread.
elmt (16) – Resize by 20%. Place to the bottom right corner. Duplicate, resize by 70%. Place over the ribbon, slightly to the left.

Open your tube. Resize to your liking. Place to the right. Open a closeup or tube without resizing and arrange two or more duplicates across your canvas. Merge the closeup or larger tube layers together. Move this layer to just above your paper layer.

Xero Porcelain. Set the blue to 0. Duplicate this layer. Gaussian blur 3.00, set the blend mode to Multiply, opacity 40. On the original layer, set the blend mode to Overlay, opacity to 50.

On the smaller tube layer, Xero Porcelain with the same settings.

Duplicate your window and minimize this for now.

On your original canvas, open pap (2), resize by 22%. Copy & paste as a new layer. Crop your canvas to 600 x 250. On the top paper layer, select all. Selections, modify, contract by 2. Selections, invert and press delete. Deselect.

Select all, float, defloat. Selections, modify, contract by 2 and press delete. Deselect. Add noise, uniform, 50, monochrome checked.

EyeCandy 4000 – Gradient Glow.

Under the basic tab, set the Glow Width to 3.00. Under the color tab, change the yellow color to white and set the opacity to 50.

Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers if desired. Merge visible and save as a PNG or JPG.

Maximize your duplicate window. Crop your image to 150 x 150, place the crop box over the area you would like to use as an avatar. Apply the crop tool. Repeat your frame layer as we used in the original canvas. Add your name or initial, copyrights, & license info. Merge visible and save as a PNG or JPG.
