This tutorial was written by me on April 24th, 2015 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.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using the art of Elias Chatzoudis. I purchased this tube when he was with PSP Tubes Emporium, which is now closed. You may now purchase his tubes here.

PTU kit from Kandii Popz Dezignz called Gothic Beauty. You can purchase this kit here.

Template 201 by Toxic Desirez. You can find it here.

Font of choice. I am using CF Revolution.

——————–

Open your template. Set the canvas size to 850 x 737. Resize all layers by 71%. Delete the credits layer.

Merge together the following layers respectively:

Raster 8/Copy of Raster 8
Raster 7/Copy of Raster 7
Raster 6/Copy of Raster 6
Raster 5/ Copy of Raster 5

Replace each layer with the following:

Raster 8 – Paper 11
Raster 7 – Paper 2
Raster 6 – Paper 12
Raster 5 – Paper 8
Raster 4 – Paper 15
Copy of Raster 1 – new raster layer, floodfill with a linear gradient using the colors #cccccc & #262626. Effects, Artistic Effects, Halftone, Line – 8, Screen Angles – 108, Use as overlay checked, Blend mode – Soft Light 100, Greyscale, Ink #000000, Transparent checked.
Copy of Raster 3 – new raster layer, floodfill with #cccccc.
Raster 3 – new raster layer, floodfill with a linear gradient using two colors of your choice.

Now lets add our elements:

WireFencing – resize by 70%. Paste above the mask layer.
Lights – resize by 62%. Place towards the top of your template. Move this layer above the black circle layer.

Open your tube, resizing as necessary. Paste as a new layer. Duplicate, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to overlay.
