To Know Me
For this tutorial you will need


* Tube of choice, I am using the work of rzhevskiiIt is a PTU Tube which can be purchased from Pics For Design  HERE

* The AWESOME FTU Scrap Kit called "Love Is" by  Bev at Horse Play Pastures which you can download from  Bev's Blog HERE

*  WORDART I got from Word Art World.  I had it in my files and have just spent a great deal of time looking on Word Art World's blog for the wordart but can't find it. I'm SURE it's there, thre's just so much there I can't pin it down right now. If you'd like to use the same wordart head on over to Word Art World and start searching LOL.  You can get to Word Art World  HERE

*  Plug In - Alien Skin Eyecandy 3 - This is a PTU filter which I cannot supply however if you don't have this filter you can use a drop shadow of your choice instead.


Let's Begin

1.  From the Scrap Kit open up the following elements in PSP;

HRWS_LI_Double Heart Wire 2
HRWS_LI_Frame 8
HRWS_LI_Heart Spray
HRWS_LI_Heart Swirl 2
HRWS_LI_Lips 2
HRWS_LI_Ribbon 5
HRWS_LI_Sparkle
HRWS_LI_Swag 2
Paper of Choice I chose HRWS_LI_P6
 
2. Open a new canvas 600 x 600 transparent background

2. With your HRWS_LI_Frame 8 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and reduce size to 75% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "75%" all layers UNCHECKED.

6.  Take your magic wand tool and click inside the frame  until you have marching ants
The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

7.  Go up to "Selections", then "Modify" and choose "expand" 5 pixels

 8. Choose HRWS_LI_P6 (or any paper of your choice) and "Selections", "Select All" then "Edit", "Copy" go back to you main canvas and "edit" , "paste as a new layer".

9. "Selections", "invert" then hit your "delete key" on your keyboard. Move this layer below your frame layer. "Selections", "Select None".  On your layer palette right click on your frame and "merge down" (merging your frame and paper layer together)

10.  With your HRWS_LI_Sparkle
 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas.  Go up to "Effects", "PlugIns" and find your "Eyecandy3", "Gradient Glow" and use the settings shown in the print screen below.


11.  Give your sparkle layer a drop shadow. You can use the settings I did as shown in the print screen below.


12.  On your layer palette "right click" on your sparkle layer and "duplicate"  I then moved my duplicated layer down just a bit on my canvas.  On your layer palette "right click" on your top sparkle layer and "merge down" merging your 2 sparkle layers together then right click again and "duplicate", then up to "image", then "flip"  I moved my duplicated layer up just a little bit then right click on your top sparkle layer and "merge down" merging both your sparkle layers together so now you have one.  On your layer palette move your sparkle layer BELOW your frame layer.
(see my print screen for what I have now)

13.  With your HRWS_LI_Heart Spray,
 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and move it over to the right until you see the larger heart completely visible to the right of your frame
(see print screen below for how mine looks)

14.  On your layer palette right click on your hearts layer and "duplicate", then up to "image" then "mirror".  On your layer palette right click on your top heart layer and "merge down" merging your 2 heart layers together.  I then gave my heart layer the same gradient glow except changed the (opacity to 75%) and drop shadow as I did the sparkles.

15.  On your layer palette click on your frame layer to make it active and with your magic wand tool, using the same settings we did previously EXCEPT change the tolerance to "12" click inside your frame

16.  "Edit", "Copy" then "edit" "Paste as a new layer" your tube on to your canvas.  Move the part of the tube you want showing into the frame (I used just her face) and move it over to the left side.  Up to "Selections" then "invert", then hit the "delete" key on your keyboard.

17.  With your
HRWS_LI_Lips 2 reduce size to 50% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "50%" all layers CHECKED.  I then rotated mine using the settings shown below.


18.  
"Edit", "Copy" then "edit" "Paste as a new layer" on to your canvas and move it into the frame over to the right.  Hit the "delete" key on your keyboard.  "Selections", "Select None"  Right click on your lips layer and "merge down" merging your tube and lips layers together.  On your layer palette change the blend mode to "Luminance Legacy" and reduce the opacity down to about 65.

19.  With your HRWS_LI_Double Heart Wire 2 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and
reduce size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED and move it to the bottom of your frame like I've shown in my print screen below.


20.  Right click on your double hearts layer and "duplicate" then "image", "flip".  On your layer palette right click on your top double hearts layer and "merge down" merging your 2 double heart layers.  Give it a drop shadow using the same settings as previously.

21.  With your HRWS_LI_Heart Swirl 2 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and reduce size to 85% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "85%" all layers UNCHECKED and move it to upper right side of your frame. Right click and "duplicate" then "image", "mirror".   Click on your top Heart swirl layer and "merge down" merging
your 2 heart swirl layers together. Give this layer the same gradient glow and drop shadow as used previously.
(see what I have now in the print screen below)


22.   With your HRWS_LI_Ribbon 5 
 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and move it over to the left of your frame.  On my layer palette I also moved this layer below my double hearts layer.

23. With your HRWS_LI_Heart Swirl 2 edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas and reduce size to 50% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "50%" all layers UNCHECKED  and move it up to the top of your frame so it's centred in the middle of your 2 larger hearts on either upper right corner.  Give it the same drop shadow as previous.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


24.  Edit, copy and edit, paste as a new layer on to your new canvas your tube and reduce the size to your liking. I also gave my tube the same gradient glow and drop shadow as used previously.

25.  Add your wordart.  What I did with my wordart is reduced the size down and exported it as a "custom brush".  When you do this you can then make the wordart any color you'd like.  I gave my wordart the same gradient glow and drop shadow as used previously.

26.  Add your name using the same gradient glow and drop shadow as used previously.

27.  Add the copyright information then you can save it as a jpg (for a white background) or you can save it as a .png file to preserve the transparent background

YOU ARE ALL DONE!
