Magic Show 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
PTU Kit Private Dancer bu Sweet Cravings Scraps by Kara found here
Thanks Kara!
Blue Blast animation found here 
Tube of choice I am using Elias Chatzoudis and you need a license to use his work found here
Font of choice I am using Moulin Rouge
Mask of choice I am using WSL-84 found here
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15 

Let's Begin!




Open up a new image. I like to use a tagger size of 460 x 460
Flood fill white
Add paper element 6 and right click copy, right click paste and add as new layer. Place this layer above the white layer. Add your mask (you may need to invert)
Now open up element frame 8 and right click copy, right click paste as new layer. Rotate the frame so that it looks mine above. Duplicate and tilt to the left (see example above)

Open up paper 3 and right click copy, right click paste as new layer. Place this layer below the frames. Using your magic wand click inside frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8 then click on the paper layer and then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard and then deselect. Follow these same steps on the other frame.

Open up your tube of choice and right click copy, right click paste and add as new layer. Position her where you would like in the frame. Duplicate your tube and place one tube below the frame and one above the frame. Using your magic wand click inside the frame again and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8 and then click on the the layer that is below the frame and then go to Selections-click invert -then hit delete on your keyboard. Now click on the tube that is above the frame and using your eraser, erase parts of the tube that are sticking out of the bottom of the frame. 

Now you can add any other elements you want making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer

Add your name and copyright and if you would like to animate your tag follow down to the rest of the tut!


:Animation Shop:
  Open up the blue blast animation and you will see there are 12 frames. Delete the copyright frame. Then Select All frames then go to Animation -Resize Animation and resize to 150 x 150 in Pixel Size, Select All frames and minimize for now
Now go back to PSP and right click copy merged and right click paste as new animation. Then right click copy the first frame and paste after animation. Repeat this for a total of 11 frames. Select All frames , then bring over the blue blast and right click paste into seletion and place it on her hand, then right click paste into selection again and palce it on her other hand.
