*Tut*Spoiled Rotten

Ok here goes for my first tut!!

This tutorial was made using psp9 but can be done in other versions.

This tutorial is my design any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

What you will need:

Tube of choice, I have used the stunning work of ©Dominic Marco, you can purchase a licence for his workHERE And visit his website HERE

Filters: None

Animation shop

Ribbon or bow of choice

Download supplies HERE and save to masks folder

Fonts of choice I used Bradley hand ict and Brush Script standard

Lets Go!

Remember to save often!

Open a blank canvas 600 x 600 flood fill white

Open your tube of choice and pick a colour from that, now go back to your original image.

Add new layer and flood fill with ur chosen colour, layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk, find your WSL_120 mask making sure invert transparency is UN checked, click load.

Merge, merge group

On your merged layer right click and duplicate 2 more times, rename these layers mask1,mask2.mask3

Click on your mask 1 layer, Adjust, add/remove noise, set to gaussian monochrome checked 70%.

Click on mask 2, the same again but change to 80%

Click on mask 3, again the same but change to 90%

Hide the last 2 mask layers until we are ready to animate :)

Ok, change ur colour pallets to black and draw a circle in the centre of your canvas roughly the same size as mine, right click, convert to raster, duplicate, flood fill with the colour you chose for your mask layer,Duplicate, pull that layer underneath your black circle layer, adjust,blur, gaussian blur, set to radius 10.00.

Go to your top coloured layer, layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk this time look for your spoiled rotten mask click load mask. Merge, Merge Group.

Go back to your black circle layer and re size 95%

Right back to your elipse tool making sure your background colour is transparent, create as vector is checked, line style Diamond, width 10.00.... draw a circle the size of our other circles but just arrange it so that it comes to just outside of the blur.

Layers, new raster layer, text tool hover the diamond circle so that you get the A with the half circle around it click and add your text, whatever size or font that looks good, after i wrote what i thought looked good I wrote it again went to the beginning of the second saying and just pressed

the space bar until the it was in a position on the circle that I liked... click apply and convert to raster.

Go to your diamond layer and erase any of the line that is showing on the font.

Open your tube and ribbon/bow copy and paste onto your canvas and arrange to your liking :)

Once you have done that add your copyright, license number and watermark. Go to your bottom 4 layers and X them out, layers, merge, merge visible un X the bottom two layers.

Back to text tool foreground black background colour of choice,stroke width 2.00, font of choice, make sure its nice and bold though, once you have it the way you like it, convert to raster and duplicate twice rename Name 1, Name 2 and Name 3, got to adjust, add/remove noise, add noise.... the same settings as before :o)

X out Name 2 and 3

Copy merged

Woah!! nearly there!!!

Open animation shop right click paste as new animation

Back to paintshop:

X out Mask 1 and Name 1, un X Mask 2 and Name 2, copy merged

Back to animation shop: paste after current frame.

Paintshop again! lol X out mask2 and name 2 un X Mask3 and Name3, Copy Merged.
