bee mine

Tutorial done in PSPX2.
Must having some working knowledge of the program.
Bee Mine PTU kit by Desirena Designs.
Tickled Red tube by Barbara Jensen, purchase HERE
Template by me, download HERE.


with all the files open, let's get started.
open the template and delete my copyright info layer.

open a paper from the kit and copy.
on the template canvas, on the Circles1 layer, select all/float/defloat.
add a new layer above the Circles1 layer and paste into selection.
select none and delete the Circles1 layer.

repeat the steps with the following layers and varying papers.
Circles1 - paper2
Rectangle - paper10
Square1 - paper5
Square2 - paper8
Circles2 - paper1
Circle - paper3

now on the Hearts layer, add noise with the following settings:
Gaussian - 50
Monochrome checked

above the Circle Outline layer, add a new raster layer.
flood fill with the following color - #f2e222
on the Circle Outline layer, select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the flood fill layer.
select none and delete the template Circle Outline Layer.

now open the tube and copy.
paste it above the paper3 circle layer.
use your move tool and drag it to a position of your choosing.
now duplicate the paper3 circle layer and select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the tube layer.
select none and delete the duplicate circle layer.
now on the tube layer, go to effects > photo effects > black and white film
apply it with the following settings:
brightness - 0
clarify - 0

now that all the basics are done, add any elements, text and tubes.
don't forget to add artist credit and license info.

when you're all done, copy special > copy merged. 
paste as a new image and use your magic wand tool to select outside the tag. 
invert selection and crop to selection. 
that will get rid of any extra space that you don't need.

thanks for trying my tutorial! =)
