You Are Beautiful

For this tutorial you will need

* Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Rachael Tallamy which is a PTU Tube which you can purchase from Up Your Art (UYA) HERE

* Mask - I used Mask 4 by Babes Designz . Unfortunately Babes Designz has removed her blog.  I have included the mask in the supplies folder for the time being until if and when Babes Designz opens her blog back up

* Wordart - You Are Beautiful by Bethany from Elegant Wordart which you can download form her blog HERE

* Supplies -
By me which you can download HERE


Let's Begin


1. Open a new canvas 700 x 700 background color white
(You can resize down later if you wish)

2.  To start let's add a new layer by going up to "Layers - New Raster Layer"  With your flood fill tool fill the layer with a color of your choice.  I chose to match my color up with my tube and used color #7b5c4d

3. Along your top tool bar choose  "Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image"  When the settings box pops up arrow down and find your "BabesDesignz_Mask4" (which is your mask)
(see my print screen below for the settings to use)


4.  On your layers palette right click on your mask layer and "merge group" then reduce the size to 90% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "90%" all layers UNCHECKED

5. Go up to "Selections - Select All",  "Selections - Float",  "Selections - Defloat". "Selections - Modify - Expand" and choose
"2 pixels".

6. Up to "Layers - New Raster Layer".  With your flood fill tool fill your new layer with a lighter color (I choose color #f4dac8) then on your layer palette move this layer UNDER your original mask layer. On your layer palette right click on your original mask layer and "merge down". Give the merged layer a drop shadow of your choice.

7.  Over on your left tool bar down the side choose your "selection" tool
(see my print screen below if you're having trouble finding this tool)

Choose "Selection Type - Rectangle" and "Mode - Add (Shift)"
(see my print screen below for settings)
 
Now you are going to draw out 4 rectangular squares, 2 on each side of the mask.
(see my print screen below for where I'm referring to)


8. Next go up to "Effects - Texture Effects - Blinds" then "Selections - Select None"
(the blind settings I have in the print screen below)


9.  Using your selection tool again draw a rectangle down the left side of your mask image
(see print screen below)

10.  "Layers - New Raster Layer" and flood fill the layer with a color of your choice. I chose the same lighter color I used earlier #f4dac8

11.  Up to "Effects - Texture Effects - Texture" and use the settings I used in the print screen below.


12.  "Selections - Select None" then on your layer palette right click and "duplicate". Up to "image - mirror".  On your layer palette right click on your top layer and merge down
(see my print screen for what I have now)


13.  Go up to "Selections - Select All",  "Selections - Float",  "Selections - Defloat"  then open up your tube and up to "image - mirror" then "edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer".  More your tube into your selected area with your choice.  Up to "Selections - invert" then hit the delete key on your keyboard.  On your layer palette reduce the opacity to about 65%.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)

14.  Go back to your tube and "edit - undo" (we want to undo mirroring the tube).  "edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer" your tube and move it to the centre of your masked layer.

15.   "edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer" the LHDYAB_supply1.
(see my print screen below for where I placed mine)

16.   "edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer" the LHDYAB_supply2 and move it to the right hand side corner of the LHDYAB_supply1
(see my print screen below for where I put mine)


17.  On your layer palette right click on your layer and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror".  On your layer palette right click on your top LHDYAB_supply2 layer and "merge down" merging your 2 LHDYAB_supply2  together.

18.  On you layer palette click on your very bottom white layer to make it active then  "edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer" the LHDYAB_supply3

19.  Open up the wordart in PSP then reduce the size to 20% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "20%" all layers CHECKED.  "Edit - copy" then go back to your main canvas and "edit - paste as a new layer" the wordart and place it where you'd like.  I put mine on the bottom. 
** A little tip for you** 
You will notice mine is colorized.  I usually turn my wordart into a "custom brush" by going to "File", "Export", "Custom Brush".  Name it what you would like then go to your brush tool, find your newly created custom brush now you can make your word art whatever color you would like.

20.  Go up to "Effects - 3D effects - Inner Bevel" and use the settings shown in the print screen below


21.  I then repeated steps 5 & 6 with my wordart like I did with my mask.

22.  With your text tool add your name.  I used a script font

23.  Add your copyright information, save as a jpg (which will give it a white background) or png (close off the visibility of your white background layer) which will save it as a transparent background
and you're

ALL DONE!! 

**Note** My preview shows some "noise" added to my tag. If you'd like to do that as well and don't know how to add noise to a tag you can use the "DSB Flux Filter - Bright Noise". I have written a tutorial on how to use this filter if you'd like to try the tutorial to add the noise to your tag.

You can find the tutorial HERE

Animation really isn't necessary with this tag as it looks just as nice without ;)

I  hope you have enjoyed this tutorial
