Midsummer's Fairy

This tut is written using a kit included in the Midsummer’s Dreams Collab created by Addictive Pleasures.  The Collab Kit can be yours free for a limited time with a minimum purchase at Heartbeatz Store.  The tutorial was written using PSPX, but is adaptable to any version and is for people with a good working knowledge of PSP. 

WSL_Mask254 which can be downloaded here. Scroll down a bit and the links are on the right.

Open a new image 550 by 550, fill with white. Add new raster layer, select all, c/p paper p5 into selection. Add mask. Duplicate layer, Adjust/Hue and Saturation/Hue Saturation Lightness, saturation 33.  Use the deformation tool to resize this layer a little smaller. Click on the dropdown script menu and select the default script CenterLayer. Merge down.

C/P your focus tube as a new layer. Add a nice drop shadow.   I used a pretty fairy tube ©Cathy Delanssay with permission. Please do not use her artwork if you do not have permission to do so.  Feel free to use a tube of your own choosing.  Move the tube to the bottom of the mask layer.  For the tube I used, I highlighted the mask layer, select all, float, defloat.  Highlighted the tube layer, selection/invert, delete.

Open the clock element, resize to 60%, c/p it as a new layer on the top left of the tag. Open the bubble element, resize to 50%, c/p as a new layer and position it over the clock, merge down. Add a drop shadow to the clock. Drag this layer below the tube layer if it overlaps.

Open the rainbow and resize to 60%.  C/P as a new layer over the clock layer.  Using the deform tool and hold the shift key, drag the right middle node down making the rainbow look like it’s on a slight angle. Position the rainbow making sure that the right and left sides are at the edges of the mask.

Open the stars element, resize to 70%, drag below the tube layer.  Position the stars where you want them using the deform tool.  Duplicate layer and position it below the first bunch of stars.  I then used my eraser tool and erased some of the stars that were not fully shown because of being behind the clock or tube. Once you have your stars placed where you want them, merge the top stars layer down.  Add a drop shadow.

Highlight the top layer of your tag.  Open the umbrella element and resize to 60%.  C/P as a new layer on the bottom right of the tag, add a drop shadow.  Open the element ribbonandbow, resize to 70%, move it to the top of the tag, add a drop shadow. Open flowerribbon and resize to 30%, c/p as a new layer, duplicate three times. Position and resize these flowers here and there on the tag using the deform tool. Highlight the top flowerribon and merge down three times, add a drop shadow.

Now you can add your text, watermark and copyright information and you’re done!
