Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
and unintentional.
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.

Please do not share this or put my tuts on another website!!

*Tagtemplate11, made by Dee, you can visit her scrapsite here. Template can be downloaded here

* Scrapkit Garden Magic from Aussie scraps. It's a payed kit and you can buy it here under aussie scraps
* Tube of choice, or use the tubes from the wonderful kit :-)

Remember to save often :-)
Have fun!!

1 Open you template, shift D to duplicate and close the original.
2 Remove the top layer with the watermark etc on it. (Left click on it and click delete)
3 Make sure you are on layer rectangle1, that will be the third layer from the bottom:

4 Selections/Select all
5 Selections/Float
6 Selectons/Defloat

Note: you can do an extra step to make sure you cover it all, by going to Selections/Modify/Expand by 1, but it's optional.

7 Open a paper from your kit, resize if neccesary (Note: if you use a scrapperskit you don't need to resize but it's up to you, if you use a full kit, resize till 600 by 600.
8 Set your foreground to this paper, I used these settings:

angle: 0
scale: 100
Texture: not selected

9 Floodfill your layer with the paper
10 Selections/Select none.
11 Note: you can try out different papers, you have to play a little bit to see what you like.
12 Select rectangle 2 and repeat steps 4 till 10 but use a different paper.
13 You can go further now and fill all layers with the papers you like... be creative and have fun :-) Leave the frameshadowlayer as it is or delete it and add your own dropshadow
14 When you get to the layer with the flowerdoodle you have to make sure you fill all parts of the layer, just click on the parts that aren't filled immediately. Sometimes it takes a few more clicks :-)
15 Add a dropshadow of choice to all your layers or use mine:

vertical: 2
horizontal: -2 (or 2)
opacity: 55
blur: 5
color black
shadow on new layer NOT checked
you should have something like this:

16 Add your tube and give it a dropshadow. You can put the tube where you like, it's up to you and add embellishments of your scrapkit.
17 Give them a dropshadow of your choice too
18 add your name to the tag, use a font you like, I used Billo. Foreground a dark color from your tag, background a paper of choice but it's up to you :-)
19 I used eyecandy 4000 to make a cool glow around the name. (Effects/Plugins/Eyecandy4000/Gradient Glow with these settings:

color: white

20 Add a dropshadow:

vertical: 1
horizontal: 1
opacity: 40
blur: 4
color black
shadow on new layer NOT checked

21 When your satisfied with the result go to your bottomlayer and give it a color to fit your scrap but you can also leave it white, just what you like best.
22 Use your croptool to resize the header as small as possible
23 Resize to your liking, I resized with 85%, makes sure all layers are checked!
24 Add copyright information and watermark etc.
25 Layers, merge visible and save as a jpeg.

That's it!!! I hope you had fun making this tutorial
