No Scraps - Checking In


Checking In






This tutorial was written by me on May 22, 2012, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.
Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.



Supplies:

"Monster Tea Party" tube by Lisa Victoria and is available from Up Your Art
Please do not use this tube without the proper license
Fonts: "Mister Belvedere Upper" (Checking In) and "First Grader-Normal" (name)
Mask of choice – I used Becky_Mask023
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow


To save time, I use these abbreviations:
C/P = copy and paste
DS = drop shadow


In psp, open a new blank image 600x400
Type out your saying using Mister Belvedere_120_Black – use nodes to stretch it out and make it taller
Convert to raster
Effects – Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow_3_25_100_#6a9e10
Adjust – Sharpen – Sharpen More
Duplicate
On duplicate, DS_2_-5_50_5_Black
Right click original word layer – Merge – Merge Down
Copy each individual tube and paste as a new layer onto canvas.
Resize each and sharpen
Place to your liking – I did mine as it is in the original picture
Repeat same DS
Using selection tool, select a portion of the trees and sky on the original image that came with the tubes (if using a different tube, you may not have this, but a stock photo, scrap paper, or flood filling will work just fine
Copy this selection
On working image, add a new layer to bottom
Selections – Select All
C/P your image into selection
Select none
Open mask in psp
Layers – New Mask Layer – From Image – click your mask in drop down list
Right click mask layer – Merge – Merge Group
Add all correct copyright information
Add name – First Grader-Normal_72_#6a9e10
Use nodes to rotate slightly
Convert to raster
Effects – Eye Candy 400 – Gradient Glow_3_25_100_Black
Adjust – Sharpen – Sharpen More
DS_2_-5_50_5_Black
That’s it!!
