♥Down In The Garden PTU♥

Here is what we will be making :

**This tutorial was written & posted by DitzyDezigns on 5/12/2011**

**Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & unintentional!**

Supplies Needed :

Paint Shop Pro X2 (Any version should work)

Tube Of Choice , I used the adorable work of Toosh Toosh

Scrapkit Used Is Down In The Garden By Danielle @ Scraps By Danielle & Scraps From The Heart



Font Used :

Mrs Von Eckley

Size : 65 Pixels

Color : Black (#000000)

Elements Used :

Papers 11 & 12

Fence


Flower Bow

Spring Time (Wordart)

Snail

Spring Fairy

Tulip

Flower Pot

Ribbon Frame


Lets Begin :

Open a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. (Don't worry we will crop it later)

Now open your Ribbon Frame - copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 75%. Now using your move tool, position your frame to the center of your canvas.

Now, when I tried to use my magic wand to select the inside of my frame, it did not work the way it should have. So what I ended up doing was opening Paper12, copy & pasting it as a new layer ,now re-size your paper to 50%.

Now activate your eraser tool, and erase any part of the paper that is on the outside of the frame.

Once you get all of the access paper erased, you can now sharpen & apply a drop shadow to your frame.



Now open your tube of choice : copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size your tube to 55%. (This will depend on the tube that you are using, so you might need to adjust the size accordingly.) Now using your move tool, move your tube so that it is center with your frame.

Go to your layers pallet, right click on your tube layer and click Duplicate, then go to Adjust, click Blur then click Gaussian Blur, Set to 3.00 & click Ok.

Now at the top of your layers pallet, change the Blend Mode to Overlay.

Then click on the bottom tube layer (in your layers pallet) and apply a drop shadow.

Now open your Flower Pot, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 25%. Using your move tool to position your Flower Pot where you would like it.

Go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen. Apply a drop shadow.

Now go to your layers pallet ,& right click on your Flower Pot layer, then click Duplicate, now using your move tool, position your duplicated Flower Pot element to where you would like it. (You may use my tag for reference if you would like to do so.:--)

Now open your Spring Time (wordart) element - copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 80%. Use your move tool and move your wordart to the bottom of your tag, and center it with your frame.

Now open your Spring Tulip element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 15%. Now using your move tool & position your Spring Tulip to the left side of your word art. In your layers pallet, move your Spring Tulip layer below your word art layer.

Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Apply a drop shadow.

Now back in your layers pallet, right click on your Spring Tulip layer, and click duplicate, then use your move tool and move your duplicated Spring Tulip element to the right side of your word art element.


Now open your Tulip element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Then re-size it to 20%. Using your move tool to position your Tulip at the bottom of your frame. Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen & then apply a drop shadow.

Now in your layers pallet, right click on your Tulip layer, and click Duplicate , then position your duplicated Tulip to your liking.

Then move both your Tulip layers below your word art layer.

Now open your in your layers pallet, click on the very last layer (at the bottom)

Then open your Fence element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 50%. Now use your move tool to position your Fence element to the bottom right side of your frame.

Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.

Now go to your layers pallet and right click on your Fence layer and click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror. Using your move tool, adjust the position of your duplicated Fence element so that it is even with your right sided Fence.

Now click back up on the very top layer in your layers pallet, Open your Spring Fairy element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 25%. Now using your move tool, position your Spring Fairy to the left side of your frame, and place it towards the top end of your Fence element.

Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.

Now go to your layers pallet & right click on your Spring Fairy layer, then click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror. Use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated Spring Fairy if you need to.

Now open your Snail element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 15%. Using your move tool move your Snail to the left end of your left side Fence element. Now sharpen & apply a drop shadow.

Then go to your layers pallet & right click on your Snail layer, then click Duplicate. Go to Image & click Mirror. Adjust the position of your duplicated Snail element using your move tool if needed.

Now you will want to play around with the position of your Tulips, Flower Pot, & any other elements you think need to be adjusted. (You are welcome to use my tag for reference if you need to.)

Now open your Flower Bow element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 15%.Using your move tool position your Flower Bow element in the center of the ribbon that is already on your frame. Then go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then apply a drop shadow.

Now go to your layers pallet, click on the last layer (at the bottom)

Now open Paper 11, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now go to Layers, click Load/Save Mask, then from the slide out menu click Load Mask From Disk. Now choose a mask of your choice, and click Load. Then go to your layers pallet & right click on your mask layer, then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Group.

Now it is time to add the name you would like on your tag. Below is the font, size & color that I used for mine.

Font : Mrs Von Eckely

Size : 65 Pixels

Color : Black (#000000)




Once you have that done, and the name positioned where you want it, apply a drop shadow to your name.

Now you need to add any copyright & credit information.

Below is the font, size & color I use for all of my copyright/credit information.

Font : Pixelette

Size : 13

Color : Black (#000000)


Then I use Eye Candy 5 - Gradient Glow to make the copyright information stand out a bit more as it HAS to be readable at ALL times.

Now once you have your elements, tube, text, and copyright information where you want it on your tag, go to your layers pallet & right click on any layer, then click Merge then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your Crop tool, & crop off any access canvas that you did not use. Being careful not to crop to closely to your design. If you do make a mistake just click your undo button until your back to where you were before you made the error :-)

Now you may or may not need to re-size your tag, but if you do just go to Image & click Re-size. Then when your re-size menu opens, make sure you set your Pixel Dimensions to Pixels, set your Width & Height to what you want, then at the bottom of your re-size menu make sure the box "Re-size All Layers" IS checked & click Ok.

Now once you do all that, you may or may not want to do this next step, but I personally like to sharpen my completed tag before I save it, so if you want to do that as well, just go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Now all that's left is to save as PNG & your done!!

Thanks so much for trying my tutorial, as always I would LOVE to see what you have made using any of my tutorials. Please send me an email & include your tag. I would be honored to display it on my blog for everyone to enjoy!!
