13- Open the tube I have made from the brush "Ron's water_15", copy it and paste it as a new layer

Place it to your liking

You may choose to create your own bubble from the brush ( if your Psp accepts that big brush !) but don't forget to add a new layer !

14- Open the tube Anna.br_waiting 001 or a tube of your choice

I have resized that tube to 60% and applied the effect : Image / mirror

18- Add a new raster layer

Activate your brush tool set as below :

With white in your foreground, apply the brush birdbrushes_thiselectricheart_3, or a brush of your choice, in the right hand side top corner

I have set the mode of that layer to Dodge and I have lowered the opacity to 85

 19- Add a new raster layer

Activate your preset shape tool and close your background if you want to draw a shape without filling; with your white in your foreground, draw a star or a shape of your choice in the top left hand side corner of your tag

I have set the mode of that layer to Difference so that my star recalls the colour of the girl's suitcase ! Your choice will depend on the tubes you have chosen!!

20- I have added a drop shadow to my star ( 4, 4, 50, 2, black )

20- Add a new raster layer

Activate your text tool and write your title( Evasion for me ) with your white in your background, foreground closed

I have used the font MontecarloscriptNF, size 120, to write the first letter of your word

I have added a new layer and used the font Melanie, size 72 to write the rest of the word

21- Layers / merge down ( all the letters of that word will be on the same layer!)

I have set the mode of that layer to Difference for the same reason as on point 19

22- Add a new raster layer and apply your signature

23- Make sure everything is at the right place

Image / add some symmetrical borders of 3 pixels in white

24- Save your work as a jpeg file and resize your tag if necessary
