Well here it is April 1st, and I finally have gotten around to writing a tutorial.

Hope you enjoy.

For this tut you will need working knowledge of PSP, I have used 9.


Tube of Choice: I am using the wonderful work of Elias Chatzoudis.

To use his work you need a license.

You can get one HERE.

Scrap Kit of Choice: I am using the gorgeous FTU Scrap Kit called Happy Easter by angelflightscraps.

You can get HERE.

Drop shadow I have used throughout this tut is 3, 3,50,2.00

I’m not sure where I got this mask, so if anyone knows of the origin please let me know and I shall give credit where credit is due.

Let’s start!!!!

Open a new Raster Layer 700x700 white.

Open frame of your choice, resize to your liking, copy and paste on your canvas.

With your Magic Wand click inside your frame, open a paper of your choice, paste as a new layer, invert and delete, move below your frame layer.

With your magic wand click inside your first paper layer on your frame, selections, modify, expand by 2 and add your tube of choice, placing into position inverting and delete to remove the unwanted parts.

Repeat the above step for your second square.

Merge visible your 2 frames with papers and tube, separately.

Add a drop shadow to both your frames.

Free rotate your two frames 15%, right and left.

Resize, copy and paste a bow of your choice to join the 2 frames, and add a drop shadow.

Add your main tube and place to your liking.

Add a drop shadow.

Add floodfill your background with a colour of your choice.

Add a mask of your choice, remembering to invert transparency.

Add any additional elements that you wish to use adding a drop shadow as you go along.

Resize, add any wording and your copyright info.


Any resemblance to another tut is purely coincidental.
