Hi! Here is a tutorial I wrote today and hope you all enjoy it.
It is a fairly simple tutorial and please keep in mind that this is new for me:)
For this tutorial you will need a working knowledge of psp as well as an open mind.
I have used a scrapkit called I Love USA by Carita and you can find purchase it HERE.
I have also used 2 photographs (1 regular and 1 feathered) from Hawaiian Cowgirl and you can purchase them HERE
Font is called Showcard
Lets get started.
1.open a new image 600 x 600 (you can resize later)
2.copy the frame and paste as a new layer
3.Paste feathered picture on top of the center frame.
(I used the soften brush to blend the sides into the frame)
4.Use magic wand to click inside the left box of the frame
select, select all, select modify, expand x 4
5. layer, new raster layer, paste into selection
move below framed layer
6. repeat for the right side (before doing this, I mirrored original picture)
***at this point you may need to reposition the feathered layer to make it flow****
7. Select heart element (multicolored in the shape of a heart)
copy/paste below the photo and the frame
Do not resize *soften as needed
8. Select the "USA" word art
copy/paste on top and toward the bottom center of the feathered layer
9. Add drop shadow V -1, H 1, Opacity 80, Blur 3, Color black
10. At this point I adjusted the color of the frame to a light blue (this is optional)
11. Add correct copyright information, resize and save
