If The Crown Fits


I am using the adorable artwork of Suzanne Woolcott purchased with a license from Artistic Minds, Inc. Suzanne is now selling her art independently at GorjussArt HERE. I am also using a super cute FTU scrap kit called 100% Princess by ScrappingMar. You can pick it up HERE. Template by me and twinks are in my supplies HERE.

Let's get started!

Open the template in PSP. Add a new raster layer and drag to the bottom of the layers palette and floodfill it with white. Take your magic wand and click inside the large dark gray circle. Copy and paste a paper of choice over the selection. I used paper 1. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard. Delete the large gray circle. Repeat this process with each of the remaining circles using papers of choice. See my tag for reference. Add a drop shadow to your circles. I used 2/2/50/5.

Activate the white background layer and copy and paste paper 6 as a new layer. Apply sensations mask20 to the paper. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group.

Resize the carriage 50% and copy and paste over your template. Make it so the paper from the large circle is the backdrop for the window in the carriage. Click inside the window of the carriage with your magic wand. Selections-modify-expand by 5. Resize and copy and paste a tube over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard. Bring the tube under the carriage window frame.

Resize two of the flowers 20% and place them on each side of the template. Resize two of the lollipops 15% and 10% respectively and place them on the right side of the template over the flower. Use your raster deform tool to rotate them a bit. See my tag for reference. Resize a bow of choice 25% and place over the sticks of the pops. Duplicate and mirror the bow. Add any other elements of choice. I used a lipstick and the princess word art.

Copy and paste another tube by the same artist as a new layer. Drop shadow all elements to your tag.

Crop and resize your tag. Add the copyright info, your watermark and your name. I used the font Rockwell Extra Bold for my name.

Animation: (optional)

Copy your tag merged into animation shop. Open the two twinks included in my supplies. Duplicate the tag so it has 2 frames. Active one of the twinks. Edit-select all-Edit-copy. Activate the tag. Edit-select all-Edit-paste into selected frame. Arrange the twinks around the carriage window or anywhere you like!

Run the animation and save the tag as a gif!

I hope you liked my tutorial!
