Sweet 'n Sassy


I am using the wonderul artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrap kit I used is a cute freebie by Jill called "Lil Tagger Freebie" You can pick up this kit HERE. The template I used is by Mirella and you can find it HERE. Mask is #5 by WitchysHeart and you can find it HERE. Word art is by me and in my supplies HERE.

Plug in used: Xenofex 2 Constellation

Let's get started!

Open template 15 in PSP. Delete the copyright layer. Expand your canvas to 700x700.

Click inside the gray circle with your magic wand. Resize a paper of choice from the kit and copy and paste it as a new layer over your selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Now delete the gray circle part of the template. Continue this process for each piece of the template. I left the template frames white. Merge the small squares part of the template together after you complete. (we will be animating these later.) See my tag for reference. Drop shadow the frames of the template. I used 2/2/50/5

Activate the white background layer. Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Apply WH-Mask5 to the paper layer. Layers-load/save mask-load mask from disk. Merge the group.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Make a freehand selection around one side of the bracket elements in the kit. Copy and paste the half bracket as a new layer. Place it on the left hand side of the template. Resize it 85%. Duplicate and mirror it. I added a gradient glow to mine.

Resize the ribbon 80% and copy and paste as a new layer over the rectangle part of the template. Erase as needed. Use your burn brush to darken the ends of the ribbon.

Resize the sassy pocket 50% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place on the lower left side of the tag under your tube. Rotate it a bit with your raster deform tool.

Resize the safety pin 40% and copy and paste as a new layer. Place at the top of the tag. Rotate it as needed, and erase so it looks like it is around the frame of the rectangle.

Resize the pink string of beads 95% and copy and paste over your mask layer. Resize the black beads 90% and copy and paste as a new layer also. Resize the blue beads 95% and copy and paste them as a new layer. Mirror them.

Add any other elements of choice to the tag. I used a few flowers. Copy and paste the word art as a new layer. Drop shadow all elements of your tag.

Crop and resize your tag to your desired size. Add your copyright info, your watermark and your name. The font I used is A&S Bone Casual and cannot be supplied.

Animation: Xenofex 2- Constellation

The square pieces of the template.

Activate the paper square pieces of the template you merged together and apply Xenofex 2 Constellation with the following settings:



Copy the tag merged into animation shop and paste it as a new animation.

Back to PSP. Undo the constellation, and reapply it, but this time change the random seed.

Copy the tag merged into animation shop and paste it after current frame.

Do this process once more, for a total of 3 frames.

Run your animation and save the tag as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
