XOXO, Pamela


I am using the sassy artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrap kit I used is a gorgeous FTU kit by Lacarolita called XoXo. You can pick it up HERE. Mask is by Sophisticated Simone and you can get it HERE. The circular floral part of the template was something I had for a while and there was no copyright info in the file. If it is yours you can let me know so I can credit you. The rest of the template I made. My supplies HERE.

Plug-ins used: dsb flux-bright noise (optional)

Open the template in PSP. Add a new raster layer and drag it to the bottom of your layers palette. Floodfill with white. Copy and paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer. I used paper 1. Apply SophisticatedSimone-Mask 14 to the paper. Merge group. Duplicate the mask layer and on the bottom one apply a radial blur. Adjust-blur-radial blur with the following settings:



Click inside the larger floral edged circle part of the template with your magic wand. Copy and paste paper7 over your selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on your keyboard. Delete the larger floral edged circle part of the template. Do the same with the rest of the pieces of the template using papers of choice. See my tag for reference. Drop shadow the pieces of your template. I used 3/3/55/6.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer on top of the template. Resize element5 (the buckle ribbon) 65% and copy and paste as a new layer. Place over the bottom of your tube if it is like mine and cut off at the bottom.

Resize lips5 40% and copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the lower left of the tag. Resize hearts 1 & 2, 30% and 25% respectively and put them behind the xoxolips. Resize the lipstick 40% and place on the lower right of the tag. Add any other elements you wish. I used one of the buttons and flowers. Drop shadow elements.

Crop and resize your tag. Add your copyright info, watermark and name. The font I used is called Monika Italic.

Animation: optional

I am using dsb flux bright noise.

Zoom in on your tag and using your freehand selection tool set on point to point outline the lips part of lips5. Apply dsb flux with the following settings:



Select none- copy and paste your tag merged into animation shop as a new animation.

Back to PSP. Undo the bright noise and reapply, moving the random seed slider up to 35. Copy tag merged into animation shop and paste after current frame. Do this process again, but move the random seed slider up to 40.

Run your animation and save as a gif!

I hope you liked this tutorial!
