Glam It Up


This tutorial was written by me on April 25th, 2014 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5

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


Tube of choice. I am using the art of Creative Scraps by Crys. You can purchase this tube here.

PTU kit Glam It Up by Dees’Sign Depot. You can purchase it here.

Mask 2 from my Creative Chicks April Mask set. You can find it here. You must be a member to obtain these masks and are welcome to join the forum!

Font of choice. I am using Dragon is Coming.


Open a blank canvas, 600 x 600.

Open your mask & Paper 3. Copy your paper onto your blank canvas. Apply your mask, merge group.

Open Frame 5. Resize by 66%. Copy & paste as a new layer.

With your magic wand, click inside the center of your frame. Selections, modify, expand by 10. Open Paper 2. Copy & paste as a new layer. Selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Move this layer below your paper layer.

Lets add your elements now:

Spray 3 – resize by 85%; move this layer above your mask layer.
Element 7 – resize by 79%, flip vertical; place above the frame layer to the bottom.
Element 11 – resize by 40%, rotate right. Place to the bottom right. Duplicate, flip horizontal, & place to the bottom left.
Element 38 – resize by 40%; place to the bottom center.
Element 16a – resize by 25%; place slightly below the white flowers.
Element 37 – resize by 50%; place to the lower right.
Element 31 – resize by 40%; place to the lower left.
Element 55 – resize by 40%; place to the left side of the purse.
Element 54 – resize by 30%; place to the left side of the lipstick.
Element 30 – resize by 50%; place along the left side of the frame.
Element 39 – place to the right side of the purse.
Spray 7 – resize by 88%.

Now to add your tube layers:

Open your tube. Copy & paste as a new layer just below your frame layer. Place to the left side. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the right side. Merge these two layers together.

On the frame back layer, select all, float, defloat. On the merged tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Duplicate the merged tubes layer, gaussian blur 3.00. Lower the opacity to 30. On the original layer, set the blend mode to overlay.

Copy your tube again & paste just below the top layer, resizing as necessary.

Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers & then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
