"Friends Are Friends Fall-Ever" - PTU Tut

*What you will need*
PaintShopPro (any version should work)
Font I used : AKA Dora
Vix_Mask238 by Vix
(Optional - DSB_Flux)

**This tutorial assumes that you have working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.**

**This tutorial was written by Aimee Pryor on September 1, 2010. Any similarity between
this tutorial and another is nothing but coincidence. You may link back to my tutorials, but do
not copy them and put them on your own group or site of any kind. If you'd like to share your creation, you may email them to me at and I will share them here :o) Thanks!**

Open the wordart, cluster frame and mask in your PSP.
Minimize both the mask and wordart for now.
Open a new 700 x 700 image - Copy and paste my cluster
frame as a new layer. Using selection tool - set to Ellipse -
Draw out an oval bigger than the inside of the frame.
Choose a paper from the kit - Copy and paste as new layer.
Selections - Invert Delete. KEEP SELECTED.
Move the paper layer below the frame.

Open Dog - Resize 50% - Mirror - Resize again by 80%
Open one of the poser tuebs - Resize 90% - Copy and paste as
new layer - Move below the dog layer - Duplicate the tube image
and move the top copy above the cluster frame layer.  Go back to
the bottom copy of the tube and hit - Delete.
Select none. Using your eraser tool,
erase the poser's legs that show beyond the frame.
You'll have to erase her right arm (your left), part of her
dress up to the dog. Leave her
other hand. It looks fine the way it is. Ok. Once satisfied...
Apply a drop shadow of 2, -2, 60, 10 - Black to the bottom tube layer.

X out bottom raster layer - Merge visible.
Butterfly (orange and yellow) - 15% - Drop shadow
Butterfly (purple) - 15% - Drop shadow
Merge visible.
Resize the image - 85%

Alrighty... now leave this image alone for just a minute
and open a new 600 x 600 image. Open bead_doodle and
bead_doodle1 - Copy and paste each as new layer. Mirror
and flip the purple one - align with the green one so that the
starting circles line up - Look below:

Merge down - resize 60%. Copy the image and paste as new layer
(still on the new image - this will center the doodle.s)
Effects - Plugins - Mura Meister - Copies
Use the settings below:

Apply. Now copy the pretty little deco we made
and paste it as a new layer on your tag image.
Nice, eh? :o) Move this layer to the bottom,
just above your X'd out layer.
Now Un X the bottom layer - Make active.
Select all - Choose a paper from the kit - Copy and paste
INTO selection. Select none.

Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image - Choose Vix_Mask238.
Apply. Merge group. Duplicate - Merge down. Resize just the mask
layer by 95% and move slightly if desired. I chose to add DSB_Flux
Bright Noise to my mask layer... you don't have to, but if you'd like
to... I put the intensity to 30 and checked "mix".

Alrighty- Merge visible. Resize my wordart by 90% - Copy and
paste as new layer. It's your choice where you'd like to put it.
I chose to put mine at the bottom. Merge visible - Resize just this
layer by 90%.   Now add your name and resize to your liking.
Also don't forget to add your copyright information.

That's it!! Now save your image as .png for a transparent
background or .jpg for a white background.

Thanks for stopping by to tut with me!!

**The cluster frame used in this tut was also created
by using this kit**
