Tutorial realized with PSP XIII

Step 1 : The personalized gradient

- If you have decided to use my colours, here is what you can do :

-Open the colour palette "Fairymist_Palette_Yasmin", in your Psp and using your dropper tool, pick out my colours to set your Material palette ( left click for your foreground / right click for your background )

 - Set your Material palette as below :

My choice : Foreground : colour c6cd55

Background : colour 9c2152

I have set my foreground with the gradient "NGMultiColor5.jgd" as below :

 

----------------

- If you don't use my colours, you are going to prepare a linear gradient, set as above with three or four colours of your own that match your main tube.

- First of all, set your Material palette with two colours of your choice.

Set the gradient as below and click on Edit as shown below :

 

- Click on New as below :

- Give a name to your new gradient

- This new gradient takes your foreground and background colours into account    (see below )

- Click on the little cursor 1 (Its tip becomes black )
- Then, click on the square that contains your foreground colour
- Move your cursor a little towards the right hand side to increase that colour

- Click on the cursor 2 as shown below
- Then, click on the square that contains your background colour
- Move your cursor a little towards the left hand side to increase that colour

We're now going to add a new colour to this basic gradient

- Click underneath the gradient bar ( without touching it ) to create a new cursor
- Then, click on the square "Custom", a dropper tool will then be available for you to use .
- With that dropper tool, pick a third colour of your choice, on your main tube, for example !
- Move the cursors to your liking to create the gradient that suits you !

- Repeat that step with a fourth colour

- Click on Close and valid your modifications  ( Answer yes )

- Your gradient is ready to be used ( Click on Ok in your Material palette )

Step 2 : The background of your tag

 - Open a new transparent image of 800 by 650 pixels

 - Flood fill that transparent image with your new gradient.

- Effects / Plugins / Medhi / Weaver as below :

- Effects / Plugins / Medhi / Sorting tiles as below :

- Effects / Edge effects / Enhance or Enhance more, according to your liking.

- Window / Duplicate

- Save that duplicated background as a jpeg file and name it "Fond", we'll use it later on.

Step 3 : Twirl effect

- Open the main tube "JHanna_329 tube©G.Boissonnard.pspimage" or a tube of your choice in your Psp and copy it.
- Paste as a new layer onto your tag

- Optionnal : If your tube is much smaller than mine, you may need to do this, in order to get a better twirl effect :
Effects /  image effects / Seamless tiling default on your image before the radial blur
.

- Adjust / Blur / radial blur as below :

- Effects / edge effects / Enhance or Enhance more, according to your liking.

Here is my result : ( I haven't applied the seamless tiling effect )

- In the layers palette, I have set the mode of my layer on to Hard light

- Then, I did : Layers / Duplicate to enhance the radial blur ( It is up to you to see what looks better or what modes suit you better )

Step 4 : The decorative borders

- Open the border "dsa226amg.pspimage" or a border of your choice, in your Psp and copy it.

- Paste as a new layer onto your tag

- Effects / image effects / Offset as below :

- I have set the mode of that layer onto Dodge ( See which mode looks better with your colours )

- Layers / Duplicate

- Image / Flip 

Step 5 : the picture frame

- Add a new raster layer

- Selections / Load a selection / from disk as below / choose the selection "fairymist_yasmin_1.PspSelection" :

- With your flood fill tool, set as below , flood fill the selection with a colour of your choice ( I have chosen the background colour on step 1 )

- Selections / select none

- Effects / 3d effects / drop shadow / 1, 1, 60, 1, black

- In your layers palette, play with the modes and the opacity of that layer to find out what you prefer !
I chose the normal mode with an opacity of 55.

- With your magic wand, set as below , select the inside of all the frames while keeping the shift key pressed .

- Selections / Modify / Expand by 2 pixels

- Open the image "BackGround0022.jpg" or an image of your choice, matching your colours, in your Psp and copy it.

- I have pasted that image as a new layer on to my tag.

- Layers / Arrange / Move down

- If you prefer to paste it into the selection, you'll have to add a new raster layer beforehand and drag that layer underneath your frame.

- As I have chosen to paste my image as a new layer, I've got rid of what was outside my frame that way :
- Selections / Invert
- Hit the delete key of your keyboard

- Selections / Select none

- I have set the mode of that image on to Hard light and lowered its opacity to 70
( See which mode and opacity are best for you ! ).

Step 6 : The Kimla decoration

- Open the tube "kimla_freebie_aprilsun_flowers (5).png.pspimage" in your Psp and copy it .

See which mode suits you !

- Paste as a new layer onto your tag
- Place the tube to your liking.

- Effects / 3d effects / drop shadow of your choice / 0, 0, 80, 20, black for me .

Step 8 : The borders of the tag
