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;)

Winter Wonderland

This tutrial is written by me using PSP 10 and Animation Shop 3
Any similarities to other tutorials is purely coincidental and unintentional.
All materials and tubes used are copyright to their respective owners.

Mask and snow is Here
You find my Winter Wonderland kit Here

I'm using the artwork of Suzanne Woolcott

Plugins used
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient glow

Let's start!!

Open a new image 600 x 600, food fill it white
Choose a sheet from my kit, copy and paste as a new layer,
add the Becky Mask019, merge group and resize 80%

Add the snowflake frame, resize 80% and give it a light
drop shadow (

Add your tube of choise in the frame, resize and give a drop shadow
Add the elements you'd like, I've used the trees, the framed
wordart and a glitter doodle.
The glittery doodle is added below the masked layer.

Select and copy the alpha letters you need for your name
resize them to your liking, and place them as you like.
Merge the letters down, til you have them on one layer.

Use Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow - Subtle white glow
to make the name stand out more.
I also used it for the © info to make it more visible.

When you're satisfied with your image, crop it and
merge down the layers starting with the masked layer and down to the
white background. (on my image that's the masked layer, the glittery
doodle and the white background.)

Copy the merged layer and paste as new animation in Ani Shop 3
Open the Snow animation, it's got 10 frames so you gotta paste
after current til you have 10 frames on your background image.

On the Snow animation, Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C
On your background Ctrl+A, Ctrl+E
Place it so it covers the circle and the glitter doodle.

Back in PSP. close the merged backgroundlayer,
and merge visible the rest of the image, copy

In Ani Shop 3, paste as new animation, and paste after current
until you've got 10 frames. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C
On your background Ctrl+A, Ctrl+E and plae it in the center.

And you're done!!

Thanks for trying it out, and hope you've had fun!!
I'd love to see what you've made of this.
