PTU Tutorial "Serenity Park" and Extras

Click on image to view full size.
There are no examples; users should have a working knowledge of PaintShopPro (PSP XI is the version I used).


* "Serenity Park" is a PTU scrapkit by Jackie's Jewels available for purchase >HERE<
* Tube of Choice - I used "Becky" by Verymany which can not be used without a License >HERE<
* Font of Choice - I used a free one called Kikelet
* Mask of Choice - I used RR_MaskSet66_Mask3 by Rachel >HERE<. Be sure to say thank you if you download.

~ Here We Go ~

- Open New Canvas 800x800 to have room to work; fill bottom with White.
> If you prefer a specific size for your tags, what I do is create a 600x600 Gray Canvas then copy and paste it as New Layer.  This gives me a better idea for resizing elements as I go along.
- Add a new layer, fill with Landscape Gradient or another of your choice, or a Paper from the kit. Apply Mask of choice - resize to suit your tag size.
- Copy and paste Tree1; resize 65%; Sharpen.  Duplicate; move copy over to the left; resize 70%.
- C&P Kite; resize 40% Sharpen; place near tree.
- C&P Fence1; resize 45% Sharpen; place to right.
- C&P Fountain; resize 47% Sharpen; place to left slightly in front of the smaller tree.  I know canvas looks a bit "odd" right now - we're trying to give the illusion of fountain more in the distance.
- If you'd like, C&P Flowers3 resize 80% Sharpen; place to the left behind Fountain.  Duplicate; image Mirror; place to the right a bit.
- C&P Bench; resize 40% Sharpen; place in front of Fountain.
- C&P Flower Bundle2; resize 40%; Sharpen; place in front of the Fence.  Paste again; resize 30% this time; Sharpen; place next to larger bundle.
- The rest I tend to assemble around the style of Tube I chose for my tag, in this case one that is sitting.  C&P your Tube then begin adding any of the extras you like for completing your design.

- I added the following:
Stone Path
Row of Flowers
Flower Bundle2

- Add Drop Shadow to all of the Elements and the Tube.
- Delete the white layer and the 'size' layer.  Select the Crop Tool; crop to merged opaque.
- Resize if necessary; sharpen if needed (this will depend on when/if you do any resizing).
- Add your Crediting Information. Adding them after resizing your tag will ensure that they remain crisp; clear; and easy to read.
- Add your Name - I used the "Kikelet" font, Size 60 Points, 1 Stroke, Text Color #e098b2, Stroke Color #ffd6e8.  I added Drop Shadow:
1 / 2 / 80 / 8 / Black
