Playful Autumn~PTU~

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
Scrap Kit PTU Playful Autumn by Ginas Gems Scraps found here
Tube of choice I am using Pinup Toons and you need a license to use his work found here
Mask of choice I am using WSL-84 found here
Font I used is Zephyr
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
Using your Ellipse tool with your width setting set at 4 draw out a circle using a color from your tube, I used color #f0a59b, making sure your fill is closed. Then go to Adjust-Add/Remove-Noise-Add Noise-and make sure your setting are set as follows: 
Gaussian checked, Noise at 100%, and monochrome checked

Then using your Ellipse tool again and using the same color, draw out a smaller circle, move it the right of the large circle, duplicate, mirror. Merge visible the 2 circles, then go to Adjust-Add/Remove Noise-Add Noise- and your settings set as the same as the other circle.
Now go back to the large circle and using your magic wand click inside the circle then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 2, then open up paper 19 and right click, copy and paste as a new layer, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect
 Then go back to the 2 smaller circles and do the same thing but use paper 27

Open up your tube and right click, copy and paste as new layer. Place her below the large circle in the center or wherever you would like her, duplicate your tube, rename her duplicate 2, place her above the large circle then hide duplicate 2 for now. On the large circle use your magic wand click inside the circle and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 2, then on your tube go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect, open up your duplicate 2 tube and erase the parts that are sticking out on the bottom of the circle. Duplicate this tube if you want to animate your tag, rename duplicate 3, We will come back to this later. 
Now for the 2 smaller circles using your magic wand, click inside both circles, to select both hold down your shift key, then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 2, then open up your tube and place just her head inside the circle, duplicate, mirror, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect on each. Then for each head go to your Blend Mode and choose Hard Light.
Now add any elements you want.


Open up paper 6 add your mask, invert your mask
Add your name and copyright info and your are done.


If you would like to animate your tag please follow the rest of the tut


:Animation Shop:
 In PSP hide your duplicate 2 tube, and open up your Duplicate 3 tube, use your Smudge brush, and have your settings as follows:
Shape: Circle, Size:4, Hardness:60, Step:10, Density:100, Thickness:100, Rotation:0, Opacity: 50
Now take your smudge brush and click on the dark part of her eye and while still holding down your mouse move your mouse down, keep doing this til her eye is covered with the dark shadow. Close off that layer and open up Duplicate 2 again. Then right click, copy merged and paste as new animation in animation shop. then go back to PSP and close your Duplicate 2 and open up your Duplicate 3 tube, right click, copy merged and paste after current frame in animation shop. On your first frame go to Animation-Frame Properties-setting set at 200, then on your second frame go to Animation-Frame properties- setting set at 43
View animation!
Hope you enjoyed my tut!
