Angels Among Us

 

My tutorials require a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro!

Supplies Needed:

*Paint Shop Pro

*Animation Shop

*DSB Flux Bright Noise

*Font of choice, I used Avalanche Script

*Vix Mask 327 HERE

*"Fresh" PTU kit by Delicious Scraps which can be purchased HERE.

*A tube of choice. I used the gorgeous artwork of Shavo which can be purchased at MPT. Please do not use the same tube unless you have the proper license to do so.

 

Let's Begin--

Open a 650 X 650 White Canvas.

Open a round frame of choice from the kit. Resize it by 30% and then copy and paste it onto your canvas. Resize as needed. I colorized mine to match the tube.

Click inside the frame with your magic wand and go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 4, then copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit, go to Selections-Invert, hit delete key. Move the paper layer below the frame layer.

Open a glitter frame of choice from the kit. Resize it by 27% then copy and paste it onto your canvas. Colorize it to match your tube if needed.

Open your tube. Copy and paste it onto your canvas and position it. Add drop shadow and duplicate it. Drag the duplicate below both frame layers. Close off the top copy of your tube and click on the bottom copy. Use your eraser tool to erase the parts that are sticking out of the bottom of the frame. Open back up the top copy of your tube and click on that layer. Use your eraser tool again to erase the bottom parts of the tube up the the inside edge of the bottom part of the frame. Now add a slight drop shadow to the frames.

Open a tag of choice from the kit. Resize it down to about 15% then copy and paste it onto your canvas. Place it in the bottom middle of your tag, see my tag for reference.

Add a few flowers of choice by opening them, resizing them down to around 10% and then resize them again by about 50% and place them behind the tag. You can flip them upside down like in my tag or place them however you wish.

Open a butterfly of choice, resize it down by 15%, copy and paste it onto your canvas, add drop shadow and place where you wish. Add another butterfly in the same way if you want.

Click on your background layer then copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit. Open the mask I provided in PSP then go back to your tag and make sure the paper layer is selected. Go to Layers-New Mask Layer-From Image, and then choose the mask from the drop down menu and click ok. On your layers palette, click on the mask layer and right click and choose merge group.

Crop and resize your tag as needed.

Add your name on the tag and add your copyright information.

Click on the mask layer and duplicate it twice. Close off the top 2 copies and click on the bottom one. Go to Effects-Plugins-DSB Flux Bright Noise, change the number to 65 and choose mix then click ok. Close off that layer and open up the next one. Go back to Bright Noise and click on mix once. Close off that layer and open the top one. Go back to Bright Noise and click on mix twice. Close off the top 2 and open the bottom one. Right click and choose copy merged.

Open AS, right click and choose paste as new animation.

Back to PSP, close of the bottom layer and open the middle one. Copy merged.

Back to AS, right click and paste after current frame.

Back to PSP, close off that middle layer and open the top layer. Copy merged.

Back to AS, right click and choose paste after current frame.

Play your animation and if you are satisfied save as gif!
