 You must have excellent PSP working knowledge to follow this tutorial.


I used Paint Shop Pro 9 but any version will work.

Tube is called Gretchen/Zombie by Tezza's Dezignz Tube Art you can purchase at Mystical Scraps.

Scrapkit Bluey by Skyscraps by Tiny Turtle Designs you can purchase at Tiny Turtle Designs Store.

Mask 219 you can download at Gem's Taggin' Scraps.

Font of choice

Drop Shadow settings I used on most elements are vertical 3, horizontal 3, Opacity 55, Blur 15, Color Black, you can use whatever settings you are acostumed to.  I drop shadow on elements as I paste them.

Always look at tag for reference.



Lets Begin

Open a new canvas 750x750(You can resize later)

Open Tube, Resize 431x650px. Copy and paste onto to new canvas.  Place it as in tag.

Open element 70, copy and paste and drag under tube as in tag.  Rotate right 40 degrees.  With the magic wand select the center.  Go to Selections/Expand 10px.  Open paper 23, copy and paste over selection, go to Selections/Invert then delete.  Drag paper under frame.  Again with the magic wand select the center and expand 10px.  Go to tube and resize it to original size. Rotate left 40 degrees. Copy and paste it into selection place so that only the face is in center as in tag then go to Selections/Invert then delete.  Go to Manual Color Correction, click on target and use this color #0fa9c0.  Hide tube, click on the frame layer and merge visible.  Duplicate and then mirror and place it as in tag.  Unhide tube.

Now open elements and start placing them as in the tag.  Resize them anywhere from 40% to 80%.

After all the elements are placed open paper 26 copy and paste and drag it all the way down until is under all the elements.  Open mask, go to Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image, Source Luminance checked, Invert data mask unchecked, find mask, OK.  Go to Layers/Merge/Merge Group then Merge Visible.

Tag is done.   Add your name and credits.  If you would like to show me your work contact me at  I would love to see what you did.
