Into The Darkness


Into The Darkness

This tutorial was written by me on September 11 using PSP X4.  All my tutorials assume you have some working knowledge of PSP and/or Animation Shop.

Supplies:

Tube of choice - I'm using the art of Jose Cano.  You must have a license to use his art and you can purchase tubes/license at SATC.

Scrap Kit - I'm using a great kit by Gemini Creationz called "Darkness Falls".  You can purchase this kit at SATC.

Font - I'm using Morpheus

To begin open your tube in PSP and minimize - Open a new 700 x 700 image white background

1.  Copy/paste e31 as a new layer - center in canvas - resize by 110% - copy/paste e38 as new layer - move down and to the right just a bit - duplicate - move this layer up and to the left just a bit - they will overlap in the center just a bit - drop shadow your leaf layers only

2.  Copy/paste e16 as new layer - resize 110% - center in canvas and adjust - you want the mesh frame and leaf layers to peek out around the frame - click inside frame with magic wand - copy/paste paper of choice as new layer - selections - invert - delete - leave selected and move paper layer below frame

3.  Copy/paste e1 as new layer - position over paper layer - duplicate - move this layer up just a bit - hit delete on both layers - copy/paste your tube as a new layer - resize - using eraser tool remove parts of tube you don't want showing - selections - select none - on your paper layer use your pick tool and stretch the paper to fit inside frame better - drop shadow frame and tube layers

4.  Click on frame layer - copy/paste e26 as new layer - position on top of frame - duplicate - image - mirror - copy/paste e20 as new layer - using pick tool rotate to the right just a bit - position on frame - duplicate - image flip - merge down - duplicate - image - mirror - merge down - drop shadow this layer

5.  Copy/paste e11 as new layer - position on left side of frame - drop shadow - copy/paste e14 as new layer - resize and rotate - position on top left of frame

6.  Click on tube layer - copy/paste any other elements of choice as new layers positioning on your tag - drop shadow each layer

7.  Back on white background - copy/paste e32 as new layer - position towards the top left of tag - duplicate - image - mirror - merge down - duplicate - image - flip - merge down - duplicate again - image - free rotate 90 - merge down 

8.  Copy/paste e46 as new layer - position towards the top left of tag - duplicate - image - mirror then flip - drop shadow

9.  Close out white background - crop/resize tag - add copyright/license info and name - save as .png

That's it!!  Thank you for trying my tutorial!!
