Sending Prayers Tag & Tut

This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on April 01, 2012 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share the tutorial please send a link to my blog. Thank you!

Things Needed:
Tube/Image of choice: I am using the work of the talented Zindy S.D. Nielsen which you can buy from her store here. Please do not use her images without a proper license.

Kit of choice: I am using a PTU kit from Leigh Penrod of Heartfelt Perfections called Cottage Mouse which you can buy from her Heartfelt Perfections Store or even at the new scrap store called Whimsical Divas.

Let’s Begin:
1.) Open a new image 600 x 600 72DPI transparent image (this we will call our working image)
2.) Open a frame of your choice I am using lp-f3.png
3.) Resize by 35% all layers and then copy and paste as a new layer on our working image
4.) Click in the center of your frame with your magic wand
5.) Selections-Modify- Expand by 5
6.) Open a paper of your choice and paste as a new layer on our working image
7.) Selections- invert
8.) Now hit delete on your keyboard
9.) Selections- Select None
10.) Now move your paper layer below our frame layer
11.) Open element elp-e28.png and resize to your liking
12.) Paste as a new layer on our working image and place to the left side of your frame
13.) Open lp-e19.png and resize by 25% and paste as a new layer
14.) Now lower this ribbon to place towards the bottom of our previous element
15.) Add your tube at this time depending on what tube you are using you can make it look like your tube is hanging out of the frame or just place in the center of our frame. Use your imagination with this part depending on your tube.
16.) Open one of the heart sprays and resize by 25% and again by 50%
17.) Paste as a new layer and place to your liking
18.) Open flower of choice (I am using the blue rose)
19.) Resize by 15% and again by 25% and paste in the middle of our bow
20.) Now add your copyrights and your name at this time
21.) If you would like to add more elements please do so at this time.
22.) Open a drop shadow of your liking to each of our elements
23.) I used 0, 0, 65, 2.00 Black
24.) Once satisfied with your tag merge all visible
25.) Resize by 65%-85% and sharpen
26.) Export your image as a .PNG
27.) There you have it a simple yet soft and elegant tag that shouts love from the rooftops!

I hope you like your tag and would love to see your results.
