Just a note about
my tuts I dont tell
all my secrets lol
like how I do the
glow on a name etc.
I also have no
control over the
FTU supplies
I am sorry but
sometimes the
kits are for a
limited time free
or just disappear,
I will share
masks etc ONLY
if the tou of
the creator allows,
You can easily find
another mask or kit
to use in place of
what I have used
on my tuts, I write tuts
as I create a tag,

I hope you all
enjoy them and
I thank you
so much for
taking the time
to stop by my blog

Pinup Close up Tag

Pinuptoons Close Up tag, I had a request to write this tut It uses NO scraps, but you can if you like, and it uses a few different plugins but you dont have to use those either if you dont want, you can use psp's default effects, Tube of choice, I used Rion Vernon Font of choice I used Bank Gothic BT Template and Beads by me (HERE) and (HERE) Xero-Porcelaine plugin FTU Penta's Color Dot FTU Graphic Program of choice, I use PSP 9 This tutorial assumes you have working knowledge of paint shop pro, All of my tutorials are my own creation and any similarity with any other tutorial is purely coincidential. Please do not copy my tutorials to anyplace, please link back to my blog! Open my template I provided, resize the canvas to 800 x 650 and refill the white background layer (you can ALWAYS resize later, I like having plenty of room to work) Now delete my copyright layer, now lets begin, chose the tube you would like to use for this tag, you want to use a color from your tube or a color that complements your tube when you fill the inside of the frames, okay lets start, lol grab your magic wand and click inside the center frame now add a new raster layer and move this below the frame flood fill with the color you choose to make your tag I will use my Rion tag colors for this tut, I used #dbafe3 flood fill , leave this selected and now go to your effects and apply a texture of choice I used grain long, now open the beads I provided ( you can recolor them to suit your tag if needed) and c/p as a new layer, do this 2 times, place on on the right inside the frame and one on the left inside the frame, invert your selection now and hit delete on both layers to rid yourself of any outside the frame, now add your close up tube, hit delete and select none, now we will use xero-porcelain on your tube, I used the default settings. (If you dont have xero you could always play
with the blend mode on the tube layers) now grab the magic wand and click inside the frame edge, and add a new layer, drag below all layers you have done so far, flood fill this with a DARK version of the color you are using, I used #53366e leave selected and apply a noise of choice, and select none. now add a dropshadow of choice to your tube, the beads, and the frame, hide all other layers and merge visible, now unhide all other layers and lets work on the right frame first, grab your magic wand and click inside the right frame add a new raster layer and flood fill with your darker color you used before, leave selected, and c/p your tube close up as, and now c/p the beads again, select none, now add the same porcelain setting you did before to your tube and dropshadow of choice to the tube and the beads, merge the tube, beads and flood fill layer together, now add penta's color dot effect to this layer, I used these settings, now you can get this same effect with effects weave in psp with these settings below,
if you use weave I suggest you add a new layer and apply it to that layer, then turn the opacity down a bit, Now select none and merge the tube, beads and filled layer, (and the weave if you used that filter) Now grab your magic wand and click inside the frame surround, and add a new raster layer, drag below the frame and fill with white, select none and apply a dropshadow of choice to your frame, you can duplicate your tube, bead, filled layer and mirror it to fill your other frame if you like (sometimes easier that way) if not just do the same as above in the left frame mirroring your tube, now go to your right frame again and click inside the small rectangle, add a new raster layer and drag below the rectangle, flood fill with the light color you used on the first frame and change your blend mode on this layer to hue now add a dropshadow to the small rectangle layer, do the same with the left small rectangle, now type out what you would like in the rectangles, when you are happy with your tag, hide the white background layer and merge visible. I always resize my finished tag BEFORE adding my copyright info, it makes this seem clearer, add your name and copy right information and Save the way you prefer to save tags, I hope you enjoyed this tut smiles christy Ü
this version below I used penta's dot and cross instead of color dots and used different
colors, just shows how you can change the tut to suit a different tube.
