Enchanted Forest Tut


To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP.

This Tag was made using PSPX2. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the awesome work of Elias Chatzoudis. If you wish to use his work you must have a license to use his work before using his tubes.
To purchase his tubes and receive a license go to HERE.
The adorbale kit I used is "Enchanted Forest" by Coquettea Designz and it can be found HERE.

Supplies I used:
Mask # 79 by Weescotsleass Creations and you get it HERE.
Font: Script MT Bold

I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.

Ok lets get going!!

1 Open a new blank 700x700, we will resize later.
2 Copy and paste as new layer frame2 from scrap kit and grab your magic wand tool.
3 Click inside frame and go to Selections->Modify->Expand by 4.
4 Copy and paste as new layer paper of choice.
I used Paper6.
5 Go back to Selections->Invert and hit delete on your keyboard.
6 Go back to Selections->Select None.
7 Drag your paper layer below your frame layer.
8 Now make sure you are on your paper layer and open, copy and paste as a new layer the grass element.
9 Resize and use your eraser to delete any grass showing outside the frame.
10 Duplicate the grass layer and move the duplicated copy above the frame layer but hide for now.
11 Open your tube of choice, copy and paste as new layer. Resize to your desired size.
12 Now make sure your tube is under the frame layer but above the grass layer.
13 Position tube where you desire. Duplicate your tube and move the duplicated tube above the frame layer but below the duplicated grass layer.
14 Get your eraser tool ready! Click on your duplicated tube layer and erase any of the tube that is showing outside the frame.
15 Once you have got the tube looking right click on your duplicated grass layer, unhide it and do the same- erase any showing outside the frame.
(These 2 steps should give you the look as if the fairy is sitting in the grass and also popping out of the frame- use my example as reference.)
16 Go to the bottom/1st layer and open, copy and paste your choice of paper.
I used Paper7.
17 Make sure you are on your new paper layer.
18 Go to Layers->New Layer Mask->From Image
19 Click on Source Window Drop Down and select WLS_Mask79.
20 Make sure source luminace is selected and hit okay.
21 Right click on the mask layer and select Merge->Merge Group
Resize Mask layer to desired size.
22 Open, copy and paste as new layers any elements you desire.
I used: Butterflies
Place the elmenets & tube where desired.
23 Choose desired font and type out your desired text.
I used colors: Foreground: #000000
Background: #b1c740
I also used text size: 36
24 Add Copyrights
25 Merge all layers, resize all layers to 500x500 and save.

You are all done!!!

I would love to see your results so I can save them to my slideshow on the site.
