This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on November 25, 2013 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share the tutorial please send a link to my blog.  Thank you!

Things Needed:
Tube/Image of choice:  I am using one by the Talented Mitzi Sato which was available as an exclusive to Taking Back PSP 1.  So you will need a tube of your choosing unless you were part of TBP.

Kit of choice: I am using Danielle Corbitt’s   part of a Breast Cancer Collab that is only available at Pimp My Tags withScraps Store
Plugins: Effects/Texture/Blinds  found within the program

Masks/Templates: Mask of your choosing I used Becky Mask O21 and I have searched but can’t find her personal site but if anyone knows the location please email me so I can point others in the right direction

Font of choice
Let’s Begin:

1)      Open a new image 600 x 600 with resolution of 72 DPI and transparent (this will be known as our working image.)

2)      Open both dcorbitt_savetheboobies_frames1.png and dcorbitt_savetheboobies_frame2.png

6)      Now we will move the frames and put them together to our personal liking

7)      Once satisfied with your placement  open papers of your choosing

8)      You can use all the different papers or all one pattern the choice is up to you

9)      I used paper 13 for the center frame,paper 8 for the 2 outside frames on the other frame, and last I used paper  14 for the centers of frames1
 
      10)   Open dcorbitt_savetheboobies_bowwithkey.png and resize by 50%

11)   Place the key on the left on our rectangular frame

12)   Open a flower of your choosing, I used flower 2, and I placed it over the center of the bow on the string for the key and in a couple of the frames as well

13)   Once happy with your flower placement add a drop shadow to your flowers, frames (if you choose to do so) and the key layer

14)   The Drop shadow I used is 0,0, 100, 5.00, black,  shadow on new layer Unchecked

15)   Open your tube at this time

16)   Copy and paste as a new layer

17)   Move this layer down to the layer below our center frame

25)   Now as for our other frames I am going to put bits and pieces of the original tube in these frames

26)   I am selecting the top 3 and pasting my tube as a new layer

27)   Selections- invert- and hit delete on the keyboard

28)   Select None

29)    You can leave as is (this is where you get creative, I chose to apply blinds to the top 3 cluster frame using the following settings:  Width 2, opacity 65, Light pink for the color (obviously if your image is a different color than I used and I had both boxes checked Horizontal and Light from top left)

30)   Reapply the blinds UNchecking Horizontal

31)   Now if you want to change the looks of things a bit for the bottom three frame I recommend rotating your tube to the left/or right

34)   Selections- Invert

35)   Hit Delete on our keyboard once again

So there are many cute and beautiful elements so it depends on how YOU feel. You are free to look at my tag as a reference and make it the same way I did, but again that is up to you.

47)   Make sure to add your copyright and your name!!!

48)   Once you add your name if in a dark color you might want to add a gradient glow in a lighter color so it shows up in some of the darker backgrounds used in Forums.

49)   Thank you so much for trying my tutorial and I would love to see the results. 

Sincerely,
 
Carmin

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
