GO! Team GO!


I am using the wonderful artwork of Ismael Rac. To use his art you must purchase a license with MPT HERE. The scrap kit I used is a fabulous freebie called Cheerleader by the talented Sheachell. You can pick the kit up HERE. Tag template 8 can be found at Scrapity Scrap Tutorials HERE. The mask is by Vix and is number 45. You can find it HERE. My supplies (font) HERE.

Plug in used: Eyecandy 4000 HSB noise

Open tag template 8 in PSP and delete the copyright layer. Expand the canvas to 700x700- Image-canvas size.

Click on the gray star part of the template and copy and paste a paper of choice over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. A solid paper is best for the star. I used the blue.

Continue this process with the rest of the pieces of the template using papers of choice See my tag for reference.

Activate the white background layer and copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Apply Vix_Mask045 to the paper layer. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group.

Copy and paste the pink pom pom as a new layer over the mask. Duplicate it and on the bottom copy go to Adjust-blur-radial blur with the following settings:


Click inside the star frame with your magic wand. Selections-modify-expand by 2. Copy and paste two tubes by the same artist as new layers.Arrange the faces in the star shape. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Move the tubes under the star frame and change their blend mode to Luminance Legacy.

Copy and paste your main tubes as new layers. See my tag for reference.

Copy and paste word art from the kit of choice and place it at the top of the tag.

Resize the cheerleader pennant 40 percent and place on the left side of the tag. Rotate it a bit with the raster deform tool.

Resize two of the megaphones 40% and copy and paste them on each side of the tag at the bottom. Add any other elements of choice. I used the blue pom pom, football, helmets and a few flowers.

Crop and resize your tag. Add the copyright info, your watermark and your name. I used a font named College which is a free font and in my supplies.

Animation: Eyecandy 4000 HSB noise for the pom pom background.

Activate the large pom pom layer and apply eyecandy hsb noise with the following settings:


Copy your tag merged into animation shop and paste it as a new animation. Back to PSP and undo the hsb noise you just did and reapply it, but hit the random seed button this time. Copy the tag merged into animation shop and paste it after the current frame. Do thos process once more for a total of 3 frames to your animation.

Run the animation and save the tag as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
