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!!

My Heart Belongs to You

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.


Love is in the air kit here
Mask here
wordart here

Licensed artist work is by  Olivia

Plugins used

Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact
Sandflower specials - I've included it here
(You gotta have Filters Unlimited
to use it)
Or just use another sparkle plugin ;)

Font of choise, I've used Vergennes

Let's start

Open a new image, 600x600 flood fill white
Pick a paper in the kit, copy it, add a new raster layer, select all
and paste into selection. Add the mask to it (invert transparency), merge group.

Add aframe, resize to 80%.
Use the magic wand, select inside the frame, Selections - modify -expand by 5
add a new raster layer below the frame, pick a paper and paste into selection.
Add your tube of choice.

Add the bent heart line on the bottom of the frame (or where ever you feel like it ;) )
resize to 80%, duplicate it 3 times (I like keeping an original in case I should change my
mind later ) Add a drop shadow on a new layer below the first one.

Then stand on the top layer, add Sandflower specials - sparkle001,
the only change of settings is to drag the Max size down to 4.
On the next 2 layers Max size 4 and drag the random seed button to change positions on the stars.
Add the heart for your wordart, resize and add the wordart you want in it.
merge it down on the heart and rotate it a bit to your liking.
Place it to fit to your tube, I draged mine below the girl.

Add other elements untill you're happy with the tag.
remember to give the elements a drop shadow,
To add sparkle to the hearts of the wordart and the hanging heart
Just duplicate the layers you wanna add sparkle too 3 times,
Use the magic wand (tolerance 12) to select the parts you wanna sparkle
use Sunflower specials - sparkle001 again, only this time our selections are
so small that you don't need to adjust the Max size, just drag the Random
Seed button for the next 2 layers.

Now I've got 3 different parts duplicated and with sparkle, keep your tounge
straight ;) close all but the top layer on all of them, so you've only got
one sparkle layer visible.

Add the name you'd like, I gave mine a gradient glow
with help of Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact, give it a drop shadow
and don't forget the proper ©

Now we're ready to animate. Copy Merged, paste as new animation in ani shop.
Close the sparkle layers you've used (all 3 of them) and open the next ones
copy merged again and paste after current in ani shop.
do the same again with the last sparkle layers and paste after current.
Animate and save as...
And you're done!

Hope you've enjoyed it.

If you have any questions don't be affraid to ask
them in a comment below or if you just wanna show it off,
please do so and I'll add them to the show off on the side ;)
