Daylight savings time!

Ugh I hate daylight savings time! Clocks go forward by one hour tonight (well, early hours of this morning) so we lose an hour's sleep in the mornings - and I am so not a morning person :(

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

the tube layers. Merge the four tubes together and add a dropshadow

a dropshadow. Place in one of the corners of your frame. Duplicate the flower layer and
place go to image, mirror, image flip

6. Copy and paste BD Dreamer pendant as a new layer. Resize by 40% and add

erase part of the metal ring so it looks as though the pendant is looped over the frame

dropshadow. Place in the corner of the frame. Duplicate the button and place the
second one in the other corner

instructions below, if you are not then you are now finished and can save your tag as
a PNG file


TO ANIMATE:-

5. Hide frames 2 and 3. With frame 1 highlighted go to edit, copy merged and paste into

edit, copy merged. In animation shop go to edit, paste after current frame

Be Aware


This tutorial was written by me on 22 October 2008.
Any similarities to other tutorials are completely coincidental
and unintentional. I try and keep my tutorials as simple as
possible, but they are written assuming you have a good
working knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop

YOU WILL NEED:-

Template 31 by Rachel at Scraps of Enchantment HERE
Breast Cancer Awareness kit from Krissy at Krissy's Scraps and
Tracy at
Soxsational Scraps
Mask 81 by Weescotslass from HERE
Font and tube of choice. I am using the wonderful artwork of Keith Garvey.
You will need
a licence to use his work, which you can purchase from MPT
Please do not use the same images unless you have a licence

OK, let's get started :)

1. Open all your supplies in PSP and minimize them for now. Open template
31 and make a duplicate. Image, canvas size and increase to 600 x 600.
You may need to floodfill your background white

2. Highlight the black flower layer. Select a dark colour from your tube
and floodfill with this colour. Add a small dropshadow. Leave the white flower layer
as it is, just adding the same dropshadow. Floodfill the grey circle layer with a
lighter colour from your tube and give it the same dropshadow. Merge these
three layers together

3. Highlight the circle layer. Selections, select all, float & defloat. Keep selected.
Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer, resizing by 80% first.
Selections, invert and delete. Add the same dropshadow as used previously

4. Repeat the above steps for the black rectangle and scallop square layers using
different papers from the kit

5. Highlight the white square layer. Floodfill with a pale colour that compliments
your tube and add the same dropshadow

6. Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resizing as necessary and
place where you are happy with it. Add a dropshadow

7. Highlight the white background layer and add a new raster layer. Floodfill
with the same dark colour that you used for your flower. Layers, new mask layer
from image and select WSL81. Apply this mask and merge group

8. Add a few elements of choice from the scrapkit and your name and copyright

9. Highlight your merged flower layer and duplicate until you have three flowers.
Rename them flower 1, flower 2 and flower 3

10. On flower 1, using your magic wand select the dark and light petals. Add
noise using gaussian 18%, making sure monochrome is ticked. Keep selected.

11. On flower 2 add noise again but changing it to 19%. On flower 3 add noise
again but change to 20%

TO ANIMATE:-

1. Hide flowers 2 and 3. Make sure flower 1 is highlighted on your layers pallette.
Edit, copy merged and paste as new animation into animation shop

2. Back in PSP, hide flower 1 and unhide flower 2. This time making sure that flower
2 is highlighted, edit, copy merged and in AS edit, paste after current frame

3. Back in PSP hide flower 2 and unhide flower 3. Making sure flower 3 is highlighted,
