Tut - Peaches N Pink

Peaches N Pink

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 beautiful kit Peaches N Pink by Grand Designs Posers (this is a full size kit), which you can purchase here.
A font of your choice.
A tube of your choice. I used the beautiful Poser provided with the kit, made by Sarah, aka Grand Designs Posers.
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 41/6.55.
Resizing throughout the tutorial is done with “Resize all Layers” NOT checked.

Then, it is time to 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!
