♥Summer Breeze PTU♥ Intermediate

**This tutorial was written & posted by DitzyDezigns on August 20th 2011**
***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!!***

Here is what we will be making :


Supplies Needed :
Paint Shop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Tube Of Choice - I used Caron Vinson which you can purchase at CDO
Scrapkit - Summer Breeze By Foxys Designz @ Cool Scraps Digital
Mask Of Choice

Font Used :
Al Sandra

Elements Used :
Element18
Element 3
Element 35
Element 8
Element 17
Papers 1 & 4

Lets Begin :

Start by making a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. Go to File - click New -



Open Element 18 from your kit - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now re-size it to 50%. 
To re-size - go to Image - click Re-size . Then this menu will open -


Click Ok. Now use your move tool to position your Element 18 on your canvas , position it in the center of your canvas.

Now click on your Magic Wand tool to activate it. Now go to your canvas & click inside your Frame (Element 18). 
Go to Selections - click Modify - then click Expand from the pop out menu.
 Now on the menu that opens set your Number Of Pixels to 10 & click Ok.

Make a new Raster Layer.

Now Open Paper 4 from your kit - Copy & paste your paper INTO SELECTION.

Now go to your layers pallet - move your Paper 4 layer down so that it is under your Frame (Element 18) layer.

Go to Selections & click Select None. 

Now in your layers pallet - click on your Raster 18 layer, go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.
Now go to Effects click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow.

You can use my settings below - or your own, the choice is always yours :-)


Click Ok.

Now open your Tube of choice - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 65%. (This size will depend on the tube you are actually using. If it is the same as mine, the 65% works best. If you are using a different tube, then just play with the size until you are happy with it.)

Now use your move tool & position your tube so that it looks like she is sitting on the bottom edge of your Frame (Element 18).

Go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Xero - then click Radiance.
Again you can use my settings or your own-


Now click Ok.

Go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow.
Use the same settings that you used for your frame (Element 18) & click Ok.

Now open Element 17 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Then re-size it to 50%. 
Now go to Image - click Mirror.
Now use your move tool to position your Element 17 to the left side of your tube. Now go to your layers pallet - Right click on your Element 17 layer. Then click Duplicate. Now go to Image & click Mirror.

Use your move tool again to adjust the position of your duplicated Element 17 if you need to.

Open Element 8 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now re-size it to 30%. Use your move tool to position your Element 8 to the upper right corner of your frame. (Element 18)

Go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.
Then go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow. (Use the same settings for your Drop Shadow that you used on previous elements.)

Now go to Image - click Free Rotate , then the following menu will open - 

Set your settings as follows -


Click Ok.

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Element 8 layer - then go to Image & click Mirror.
Use your  move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated Element if needed.

Open Element 35 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 40%. Use your move tool & position it to the upper left corner of your Frame (Element 18)

Now go to your layers pallet & move your Element 35 layer down below your Paper 4 layer.
Go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.

Go to Effects - click 3D Effects - Drop Shadow.
Use the same settings you have been using.

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Element 35 layer - then click Duplicate. Then go to Image & click Flip.

Now in your layers pallet - click on the very last layer in your pallet - 
Open Paper 1 - Copy & Paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size your Paper 1 to 80%. 

Go to Layers - click Load/Save Mask - then click Load Mask From Disk - now the following menu will open. You can use the settings I have or your own, which ever works best for you. (I do not remember where I got my mask from, other wise I would of provided a download link for you, but being I can't give credit where credit is due, I can not give you the mask. But any mask you think looks good will work just as well :-)


Click Ok.

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Mask layer - then click Merge - then from the slide out menu click Merge Group.

Now go to Image & click Re-size. Now re-size your Mask to 50%, Then use your move tool to position your Mask to the left side of your frame. (element 18). 
Go back to your layers pallet - right click on your Mask layer & click Duplicate. Now right click on your Duplicated Mask layer & click Merge - then from the slide out menu click Merge Down.

Now right click on your new merged Mask layer & click Duplicate. Now go to Image & click Mirror. Use your move tool to adjust your new duplicated Mask if needed.

Now go back to your layers pallet - right click on your duplicated Mask layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Down.
(Now your 2 mask layers should become 1)

On your merged Mask layer - go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise.
The following menu will open - set your settings as desired or you can use mine below.


Click Ok.

Now in your layers pallet click on your top layer in the pallet.

Now open Element 3 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Using your move tool - position your element 3 to the lower right corner of your frame.

Now go to your layers pallet - move your Element 3 layer down so that it is directly below your tube layer.
Then right click on your Element 3 layer & click Duplicate.
Now go to Image & click Mirror.
Use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated element 3 if needed.

Now click on your text tool to activate it. Set your font, size & color. I used :

Font : Al Sandra
Size : 40 Pixels
Background Color : #3291c1
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Now click any where on your canvas - then your text box will open. Now type out the name you want on your tag. Then click Apply. Now position your name to your liking.

(If you intend on making this tag in the future for other people, you will want to save it now as a PSP File, then continue with the tutorial :-)

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your name layer - then click Convert To Raster Layer.

Then go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then click Gradient Glow from the slide out menu.

(Again you can use my settings or your own)



Click Ok.

Go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow. (Use the same settings you have been using.)

Now you will need to apply your copyright, license & credit information. (Very important not to forget this step)

Once you are happy with 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.

Then you will need to re-size your tag - this size depends one where you will be using your tag & what their size limits are.
To re-size go to Image - click Re-size -



Click Ok.

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

All that is left is to save your tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!♥
