2 Patterns: lace and goldbeads

Save your patterns in your PSP pattern folder

2 fonts: Black Chancery can be found here and Heart for 3D FX can be found here

 

Open the tube and fonts in PSP and minimize them

Materials can be downloaded here

 

Let's start

1/ Open a transparent image of 640 x 480 pixels

 

2/ Put your foreground to lace pattern - angle 0 - scale 100

Floodfill your image with the pattern

 

3/ Adjust - hue and saturation - colorize - with these settings

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4/ Copy the tube flower and paste as a new layer

 

5/ Image - free rotate - 90 degrees right - and one layer around center canvas rotate selected and place it on the left

  

 

 

 

 6/ Duplicate this layer in your layers palette and keep the replica layer of the flower active

 

7/ Image - mirror

 

8/ Put your foreground color to  #c4acc3 and background color to #966989

 

9/Layers - new raster layer

 

10/Selection - custom selection - left 10, top 10, right 100 and bottom 470 pixels

  

 

 

 

 

 

11/ Floodfill with foreground color #c4acc3

 

 12/ Selections - select none

 

13/ Effects - texture effects - blinds -  with these settings - color #966989

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14 / Effects- 3D effects - dropshadow - vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 60, blur 14 and color black

15/ Put the opacity of this layer to 60 - duplicate this layer and keep it active

 

16/ Image - mirror

 

17/ Copy - misted lady0142 - paste as a new layer - move it a little bit more to the left, so it is nice in the center

 

18/ Copy - tube ribbon - paste as a new layer and move to the left in the rectangle on top

 

19/ Remove at the bottom with your selection tool the execess piece of the ribbon - be sure that the ribbon layer is active - select the execess piece of the ribbon and press the delete key

20/ Effects - 3D effects - drop shadow - with the same settings as before

Duplicate this ribbon layer and keep the copy ribbon layer active

 

21/ Image - mirror

 

22/ Layers - merge - merg all

 

23/ Activate the font Heart for 3D FX - withe these settings  

Take the letter L on your keyboard - + - font size 30

Foreground color #c4acc3and back ground color #966989

Now we put some hearts in the image

Move your first heart on the ribbon look at my example

Vector layer convert to raster layer

 

24/ Effects - 3D effects - drop shadow - vertical and horizontal 1, opacity 70, blur 7 and color black

 

25/ Duplicate this heart 4 times in your layers palette and move them under each other on the ribbon - look at my example

Close the eye of the back ground layer
