Tut - It's A Emo Party

It’s A Emo Party

This tutorial is my own creation and based on my own ideas. Any and all similarities with any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
Please do not upload to or offer this tutorial on any other site without asking me first. Thank you.
Material you will need:

PaintShopPro – I’m using PSP X2, but you should be able to follow the tutorial in any version.
A scrap kit – I used the fabulous kit It’s A Emo Party by Crystals Creations , which you can purchase here.
A font of your choice.
A tube of your choice.
No filters required.

Now, let’s get started. It might be helpful if you choose the elements you wish to use beforehand, and open them up in PSP prior to starting the tutorial. That way, you have them handy when following each step.
Also, you don’t have to slavishly follow each positioning nor setting – play and experiment a bit, especially if you use different elements.
If you are unsure how to position an element, refer back to my sample tag.
I do assume you have at least some to moderate experience and understanding of PSP.
The DropShadow throughout the tutorial remains the same: V/H 3/1 O/B 37/5.15.
Resizing throughout the tutorial is done with “Resize all Layers” NOT checked.

Open new image, 600 x 600.
Open partypp13, c/p, resize 55%.
Open paper08, copy.
With Magic Wand, click inside frame, Selections – Expand 2.
New layer, paste into selection, Selections – Select none.
Open tube, c/p, resize and position to liking, under frame layer.
Optional: Copy, mirror, change layer mode and opacity.
Merge visible, duplicate, resize copy 85%.
Open partypp6, c/p, resize 50%.
Selection Tool – Circle – draw a circle of your liking.
Selections – Invert, hit “delete”, Invert – Expand 5.
New layer, underneath paper circle, fill with color of choice, Selections – Select none.
Paper circle layer, merge down once, Arrange – Send to Bottom.
Open partee19, c/p, resize 52%.
Open partee30, c/p, resize 35%, move between two frame layers, to the right.
Open partee40, c/p, resize 40%, move towards lower edge, on top of frame layers.
Open partee15, c/p, resize 25%, lower right bottom.
Open partee17, c/p, resize 30%, upper left corner.
Open tube, c/p, resize and position to liking.

Add any further text, copyright information and watermark to the graphic.

Feel free to merge all layers visible and then resize to your liking or crop the image.
If you prefer a transparent background, save your tag in PNG format.
Otherwise, if you select the JPG, it will automatically add a white background.
Should you care for a different colored background:
New layer, arrange, send to bottom, and floodfill with your color of choice.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
