Welcome to Tutorials by Vaybs
Here you find all my tag tutorials using Paint Shop Pro (I use PSPX) and Animation Shop 3.
They're all made with FTU elements ;) And if I'm doing my job right you might pick up a few new ideas and tricks on the way.
All links open in a new window;)
Layout tag is made with my Betsys Paradise Dream kit ;)
Have fun!!

A Very Merry Xmas

This tutrial is written by me using PSP 10 and Animation Shop 3


Download here

I'm using PTU artwork by  ©PinUp Toons

Plugins used
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Impact
VDL Adrenaline - Snowflakes

Font of choise, I've used Curlz MT (circle text is included)

Let's start!!

Open my template, save it with a new name so you don't loose the original
and flood fill the background layer white.

Use the magic wand to select the red areas of the circle, duplicate the layer twice
and add VDL Adrenaline - Snowflakes at these settings to all 3 layers, just change the
random seed for the next 2.

Add the tube you want in front, give it a drop shadow (mine is o,o,100,9)

Add the bow (I resized mine twice by 60%, drop shadow 0,0,100,5)
duplicate it 2 times and add a star to just one of the bells on each layer

Add your name, I've used the font Curlz MT, size 100, bold, stroke 2.
I also gave it a subtle white glow using Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Impact - Gradient Glow
When you're done decorating and adding proper © info,
close 2 of the duplicated layers (circle and bow) merge visible and copy

Paste as new animation in Ani Shop 3
Go back to PSP and undo, open the next circle and bow, closing the ones you've used
merge visible and copy again, paste after current in ani shop.

Do the same again to get the 3rd layers.

Open the red and green ball and you'll see it has 8 frames.
just copy the midle one of your 3 frames and paste after current to the last one to get 4 frames.
then select all 4 frames, copy, stand on the last one and paste after current to get 8 frames.
Select all frames on the greenball, animation - resize animation, by 70%.
Do the same to the redball too.
Then choose the ball you wanna add first, hit ctrl+a then ctrl+c
On your tag hit ctrl+a then ctrl+e to see the ball and place it where you like
do the same to the other ball to add it.
Keep all frames selected on your tag and change frame properties to 20.

And you're done!!

Thanks for trying it out, and hope you've had fun!!

Here's another take on it.

I'd love to see what you've made of this.
