Tutorial realized with PSP XIII

Step 1 : The background of the tag

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

-Open the colour palette "Fairymist_Palette_Zoia", 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 )

1- Open a new transparent image of 850 by 700 pixels. ( NEW SIZE)

2 - Set your Material palette with two colour out of your main tube, as below :

My choice : Foreground : Light colour 92af2b

Background : Dark colour 13273b

Set your foreground with a sunburst gradient as below :

 

3 - Flood fill your transparent image with that gradient.

4- Layers / Duplicate ( Duplicate twice )

5- Activate the layer "Copie de Raster 1" and close the eye of the layer just above, as below :

6- Effects / Plugins / Kang 1 / Some snowflakes Star thing / set as below :

I have lowered the opacity of that layer to 45.

8- Layers / Load a mask / from Disk / Mask 2020 as below :

- Layers / Merge group.

13- Open the tube "JD element 17 modified.pspimage" in your Psp and copy it.

Step 2 : The sky

1- Open the tube "stars"in your Psp and copy it.

2- Paste as a new layer on to your tag.

3- Effects / image effects / Offset as below :

You may colorize your stars if necessary !

4- Layers / Duplicate

5- Effects / Plugins / Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 / Nature / Ripples

In the tab Settings, select the preset "Fairymist_zoia_ripples" and click on OK

6- Selections / Load a selection from Disk / choose "fairymist_zoia.PspSelection" / set as below :

7- Selections / Promote selection to layer.

8- Selections / Select none.

9- I have set the mode of that layer on to Lumière dure et ai baissé l'opacité à 80.

10- Now, you can get rid of the layer which is underneath.

Go back to the layer which is on top of the pile .

Step 3 : The tubes

1- Open the tube "bulles_zoia_fairymist.pspimage"in your Psp and copy it.

2- Paste as a new layer on to your tag.

It is at the right place !

I have set the mode of that layer on to Overlay.

3- Open the tube "titres_zoia_fairymist.pspimage"in your Psp and copy it.

4- Paste as a new layer on to your tag.

I have set the mode of that layer on to Hard light .

5- If you write a word of your choice, you may do this, like me :

In your Material palette , close your foreground and keep your dark colour in your background.

- Set your text tool as below :

- Write down your word and confirm that first step but keep your vectorial layer as that will allow you to appy a rotation on that word.

  

When you have applied that rotation to your liking, you may change your vectorial layer on to a normal one .

 - Repeat that step as many times as necessary!!!!

I could have used the filter Mura meister / Copies to avoid all these steps but I made that choice to be able to put the words exactly as I wished !!!!

6- When you have reached that stage, it is time to check up that the modes and opacities you have chosen all along the tutorial, give a nice effect . Otherwise, you can still change what doesn't look good.

7- Layers / Merge visibles

Copy that merged layer .

Paste it as a new Image and minimize that image; we'll use it later on to make the frame of our tag.

8- Open the tube "colacao_fantasia1.pspimage" or a tube of your choice, in your Psp and copy it.

9- Paste as a new layer on to your tag.

I have resized that tube at 85%.
