Pixie Dusk FTU

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.


:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Animation Shop
My supplies here
Scrap kit by Ginas Gems and Tuts called Pixie Dusk add-on found here
Tube of choice I am using Suzanne Woolcott and you need a license to use her work found here
Mask I am using is from WSL-364 found here
Font I used is milk cereal

Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15 


Let's Begin!
 Open up a new image any size you like. Flood fill white


Open up grass frame copy and paste as new layer; resize


Open up paper 3 and copy and paste as new layer, then on your frame using your magic wand click inside and go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8 then on your paper layer go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect


Go to your tubes that came with your PSP program and find the lawn tubes; find the one you like and copy and paste as new layer, place below the frame, see my example above, and duplicate til you have a total of 3 lawns, then place one on each side and one in the middle.

Open up each element as a new layer, the butterfly element and cat tails and water reed, duplicate the water weed and place where I have mine, see example above. Open up the flower lantern, copy and paste as new layer and place where I put mine. Then open up the Calla lilies, copy and paste as new layer and place on the frame like I have mine, duplicate til you have 4 total. Open up the sparkle deco and copy and paste as new layer and place above your tube's head
Open up your tube of choice copy and paste as new layer and place in front of the frame.
Open up paper 2, copy and paste as new layer and add your mask; invert your mask

Add your name and copy right info and you are done. 
If you would like to animate your tag then please follow the tut below in Animation Shop.



:Animation Shop:
Open up the frog from my supplies and you will see there are 12 frames, Select all frames (ctrl+A) then go to Animation-Mirror. With all your frames still highlighted go to Animation-Resize with your settings set at Pixel Size 130x139 Minimize your frog for now


Then go back to PSP and right click, copy merged, and paste into animation shop as new animation. Then right click, copy and paste after current frame, do this til you have a total of 4 frames, then Select all frames by holding down your control key +A, right click copy and paste after current frame and you now should have a total of 8 frames, repeat this process again and you should now have 12 frames. Select all frames again and minimize then maximize your frog frames and right click copy and paste into your animation you just minimized and place your frog where you would like him.
View animation and you are done.
I hope you enjoyed my tut
