Tut: Eternal Love

Eternal Love

This tutorial was written by me on April 22, 2010 using PSP 9.  All my tutorials assume you have some working knowledge of PSP and/or Animation Shop.


Tube of choice - I'm using the amazing work of Unholy Vault Designs.  You can purchase tubes and a license at MyPSPTubes.

Scrap Kit - I'm using the beautiful PTU kit "Vampire Diaries" from Touch Me at Scrapmania Free.  Visit her blog to find out where you can purchase this amazing kit!

Font of choice - I'm using Bickham Script Three which you can get here.  (Sorry it is PTU)

To begin open your tube in PSP and minimize for now.

This is a 2-part tag so we will begin with the frame:
1.  Open up Element 36 - image - rotate - left 90 all layers checked - image - canvas size - 700 x 600 - ShiftD to duplicate - close the original

2.  With your magic wand click inside frame - copy/paste Paper 15 - resize -selections - invert - delete - move below frame layer - copy/paste your tube as new layer - resize - position in frame - delete - selections - select none - dropshadow tube and frame layers

3.  Copy/paste Element 45 as new layer - move below tube layer - resize - effects - geometric effects - perspective horizontal with these settings : distortion 25 , edge wrap - dropshadow

4.  Copy/paste Element 23 as new layer - resize & rotate - position so it appears to be on headstone - adjust - sharpness - sharpen more - dropshadow

5.  Copy/paste Element 32 as new layer - resize & rotate - position on headstone - sharpen - dropshadow

6.  Layers - merge - merge visible - minimize for now

Main Tag:

1.  Copy/paste Element 62 as new layer - resize - center in canvas - dropshadow - copy/paste Element 58 as new layer - resize if needed - center on canvas - on your bottom layer with your distortion tool - stretch the heart so it is showing on the sides of book and none of the cutout heart is showing - dropshadow Book

2.  Copy/paste Element 29 as new layer - resize and rotate - position along the spine of book - dropshadow

3.  Copy/paste Element 24 as new layer -resize - position towards the top left corner of book - copy/paste Element 54 as new layer -resize - rotate - position on the bottom of chain - using eraser tool erase a part of the ring so it appears to be attached to chain (see my tag) - dropshadow both ring and chain
