Let's Begin!
Open up a new image I like to use a tagger size of 460 x 460
Flood fill white
Okay so open up element 37, right click, copy and paste as new layer. Turn sideways and resize if you'd like. With your magic wand click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5, then open up paper element 44, right click, copy and paste as new layer, and place below the frame. Then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None.
Now using your magic wand again click inside the frame once more and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5, then Open up your tube and right click, copy and paste as new layer, duplicate and place the duplicate above the frame, place the other tube under the frame, then highlight your tube that is under the frame, and go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. then highlight your tube that is above the frame and erase the bottom parts of her legs that are sticking out above the frame.

Open up element 51, and right click copy and paste as new layer. Then open up your tube once more, right click and copy and paste as new layer above the paper. Then resize so just her upper body is on the paper, then change the blend mode to Luminance.

Add any other elements you want from the kit, making sure you copy and paste each as a new layer.
Now for the "WANTED" text, I made a rectangle frame to put under it. I used the rectangle tool, I used this color #e3cfbf, and just draw out a rectangle.

Then open up paper element 47, and right click copy and paste as new layer and place above the white raster layer. Then go to Layers-Load/Save Mask-Load mask from disk, find the mask you want and then click load. Then go to Layers again and invert your mask.

Then add your name and copyright info. And you are done. If you want to animate your tag please follow down to the rest of the tut!


:Animation Shop:
Back in PSP right click your tag,  copy merged and paste in AS as new animation, then go back to PSP and open up the "shot" from my supplies, and place it on the tip of the gun. then right click copy merged and paste in AS after current frame. Then go back to PSP and using your Smudge Brush and with your settings set like this:
Using your smudge brush, smudge on the right side of her mouth smudging towards the left of her mouth, then when you are satisfied, right click, copy merged and paste into AS after current frame. Then copy your first frame, and paste after your current frame, so your first frame should also be your 4th frame, then paste after current frame again, and you should now have 5 frames, then copy and paste 2 more times for a total of 7 frames. Select frames 3 through 7 by holding down the control key as you click each frame.


Open up the smoke animation from my supplies, and you will see there are 5 frames. Select All frames, and right click copy and and right click paste into animation and place it on frames 3 through 7, on the tip of the gun.

Now on your 1st frame right click, change frame properties to 100
2nd frame change frame properties to 10
3rd frame change frame properties to 45
4th frame through 7 frames change frame properties to 35

Template by Mellisaz Creationz found here
Tube of choice I am using the artwork of Suzanne Woolcott and you need a license for her work here
Mask 211 by Insatiable Dreams found here
Font I used for my name is Honey Script
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15


Let's Begin!
Open up template, then duplicate the template by holding down the Shift + D, close out the original
  
Delete the copyright layer
Flood fill the bottom layer with white
Okay now we are going to color the font of the title, "Like Honey to a bee" and to do that we are going to go to Selections-Select All- Float- Defloat- then on your layers palette, right click add new raster layer above the text, then flood fill with color #ebd329. Then go to Selections-Float-Defloat-Modify-Expand by 2 and on your layers palette again right click add new raster layer but below the yellow text and flood fill with color #ac813d
Okay so now you are going to color all the frames, the circle frame, the rectangle frame and all 3 little frames with this color #ac813d, recolor these the same way we colored the text, go to Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat-then on your layers palette right click and add new raster layer, flood fill that layer with the color.
 You can do this same thing to change the honey comb
Now we are going to add a paper in each frame, I will tell you how to do the circle frame and then just repeat the same process for the other frames. So now to do that use your magic wand, click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 4, then open up a paper of choice from your scrap kit, right click copy, and right click, paste as new layer. Place the paper below the circle frame, to move layers you can do it 2 ways, one way is to go to Layers-Arrange-move up or down, the other way is go to your layers palette and with your mouse drag the layer up or down, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. Now remember do this same thing for all the other frames.

Now I'm going to tell you how we are going to add our tubes in all the frames starting with the circle frame, then follow these same directions on the 3 small square frames. Now in the circle frame using your magic wand, click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 3 then open up your tube of choice and right click copy and paste as new layer, place this tube below the frame, duplicate. Then move the duplicate above the frame, and close off that layer for now. On the original tube go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None, on the duplicate tube open up the layer and erase any parts of the tube that are sticking out of the bottom of the frame. Follow these same directions to put your other tubes in the 3 small square frames.
Add any elements you want from the scrap kit.  Making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer
Then on your layers palette, add new raster layer above the white raster layer on the bottom, and flood fill with the color #c08e40, then add your mask, to add your mask, go to Layers-Load/Save Mask-Load mask from disk
Find your mask then click load and then go to Layers-Invert Mask
Add your name and copyright info and your are done!

Been MIA

Hello!
So sorry I've been neglecting my Blog. I had some drama going on in my life consisting of court dates and all that hassle that going to court comes with. All that is now over and now I'm just catching up on everything.
I will have some new tuts up in the next coming days!
Thank you!
