Spring Sparkle


I am using the awesome art of Ismael Rac. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. I am using a bright and cheery freebie scrap kit by the talented Bel Vidotti, called Lollipop. You can pick it up HERE. My supplies include my template, word art and animated sparkle line. You can get them HERE.

Let's get started!

Open my template in PSP and add a new raster layer. Bring this layer to the bottom of your layers pallette and floodfill with white. Using your magic wand tool Click inside each piece of the template,one at a time and copy and paste a paper of your choice over each selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard and then delete the black/gray pieces of the template after.

I used papers 1, 12, 39 and 41 . Drop shadow the frame layer 2/2/50/5

Activate your white background layer and copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. I used paper 1. Apply sensations mask20 to this paper layer. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group. Use the raster deform tool to stretch the mask out a bit on all sides if needed. See my tag for reference.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Resize the floral branch 65% and copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the left side of your template. Duplicate this and mirror.

 Resize 50% and copy and paste the daisy as a new layer. Place on the lower left corner of the template. Duplicate it and move the copy to the top right of the template.

 Resize the heart sachet 40% and copy and paste it as a new layer onto the lower right hand side of the template.

 Resize the flower clip 50% and copy and paste it onto your top daisy. Erase so it looks like it is clipping the flower to the template.

Drop shadow all the elements on your tag. Copy and paste my word art as a new layer.

 Crop and resize your tag. Add your copyright info, watermark and name.


Animation: (optional)

Copy your tag merged into animation shop. Open the sparkle line animation in animation shop.

Duplicate your tag so you have 7 frames. Activate the sparkle line, edit-select all, edit-copy

Activate your tag. Edit-select all, edit-paste into selected frame. Place on each side of the word art if desired.

Run the animaton and save as a gif!
