CT Tut - Let's Hit The Road / PTU
There are no examples; users should have a working knowledge of PaintShopPro. I do not recall all of the settings I used.
* I am using PaintShop Pro XI
* Tube of Choice - I used an Exclusive by Zlata_M which can not be used without a License. You may purchase the tube from PicsForDesign.
* "On The Road Again" is a PTU scrapkit created by Jackie’s Jewels
* Mask of Choice – I used Rocked by Rachel Number 4 from Set 20 >HERE<. Be sure to say thank you if you download.

Open a new canvas 900x900; gives you lots of room to work. You will resize at the end before adding the credits.
Copy & paste MirrorFrame as a new layer.
Open Paper3; copy.
Back on frame, use Freehand Selection tool to trace around the opening. When you finish and see the "ants", add a New Layer. Then go Edit; Paste Into Selection. The Paper that you copied will be inserted. Select None. Move below frame layer.
Open Cactus2; copy and paste as new layer on top of the Paper. Resize; place where desired. Duplicate; resize again; place where you like.
Open Sign1; copy and paste as new layer above frame layer; resize.
Open Suitcase; copy and paste as new layer; resize.
Open States; copy and paste as new layer; resize.
Open RoadTripKeychain; copy and paste as new layer; resize.
Open Envelope1 (Postcard); copy and paste as new layer; duplicate.
On the duplicate, Select All; Float; Defloat - keep selected.
Open Paper2; copy, then Edit; Paste Into Selection on the duplicate postcard. Select None.
Move the Paper layer above the Postcard then change the Layer Blend Mode to one of your choice. I used Overlay; then merge down.
Rotate left 10 degrees, if desired.
Open Keys; copy and paste as new layer; resize.
Copy and paste your Tube.
Open Drink; copy and paste as new layer; resize. Duplicate; rotate right 90 degrees.
Open Camera; copy and paste as new layer; resize.
Select your paper for Mask Layer - I used Paper8; copy and paste onto your canvas.
Open your Mask; apply mask; resize if necessary.
Now go back and add Drop Shadow to all layers to your liking.
Delete the white layer; crop to visible layers.
Resize your tag; all layers (my tag is 595x518). Now add your Credits. Adding them after resizing your tag will ensure that they remain crisp; clear; and easy to read (the way most stores require in their TOU).
Add your Name and any Effects.
Save your tag. I saved mine in Transparent PNG Format
