I Love Rock 'n Roll


I am using the fabulous art of Elias Chatzoudis. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrap kit I am using is a rockin' freebie by Lori of Wacky Scraps. You can pick up this kit HERE. Mask is by Vix and can be found HERE. Word art and template by me are in my supplies and can be found HERE.

Plug in used: Xero-fritillary

Open my template in PSP. X out the red diamonds layer for now.

Add a new raster layer and drag it to the bottom of your layers palette and floodfill it with white. Click inside the top part of the template. Hold down the shift key and click inside the bottom part. Copy and paste a paper of choice over your selection. Selections- invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Do the same thing with the two side rectangle parts of the template. When done, delete the black template layer and add a drop shadow to the template.

Copy and paste a round frame of choice as a new layer. Place it in the center of the template. Click inside the frame with the magic wand. Selections-modify-expand by 4. Copy and paste a paper of choice over the selection. Selections-invert-delete. Move the paper layer under the round frame.

Copy and paste the two star frames. Place one at the top left and one at the bottom right. See my tag for reference. Add papers to your star frames the same way as described above for the circle frame. Drop shadow the frames.

Unhide the red diamonds part of the template in your layers pallette and drag this layer to the top so it's in the center of the round frame.

Resize the black ribbon 85% and copy and paste as a new layer. See my tag for placement. Duplicate the ribbon and mirror.

Resize the eyelet ribbon 80% and rotate it clockwise 90. Copy and paste as a new layer on the right side, so it joins the 2 ribbons together. Duplicate and mirror.

Copy and paste the guitar picks as new layers. Place 2 on the top left and 2 on the bottom right.

Copy and paste the word art as a new layer. Drop shadow all parts of the tag.

Activate the white background layer. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with black. Apply Vix_Mask10. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group. Apply a weave effect to the mask. Effects-texture effects-weave with the settings below:



Crop and resize your tag. Add your copyright info, your watermark, and your name. The font I used is called John Speed Demo.

Animation: Xero fritillary on the diamond layer.

Activate the diamond layer and apply xero fritillary with the settings below:


Copy your tag merged into animation shop and paste as a new animation. Back to PSP and undo fritillary. Apply it again, but move the bottom slider bar setting up some. Copy merged into animation shop and paste after current frame. Do this process one more time, moving the slider bar up again.

Run the animation and save the tag as a gif!
