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!!

Plugins used

Font used; Airfoil Script SSi



Let's start


Open a new image 600 x 250
Select all, Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders, inside 6
Add a new raster and flood fill it white, deselect and
give the frame a drop shadow, 0, 0, 40, 8.
Select all, Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders, inside 3
Add a new raster and flood fill it #621a27
Go to the bottom layer.
Add paper 15, drag it a bit down to get more dots.
Add frame 9, resize 80%, add paper in all frames, use the magic wand
select inside one frame, hold down the Shift key and click in the
additional 2 frames. I've used paper 9, add it as a new layer below the frame
right click and choose Promote Selection to Layer, delete the original
paper layer.
While you have the frames selected, add the tubes you want in them, resize if needed,
Selections - Invert and delete the access.

Give the frame a drop shadow, 0, 0, 40, 8.

Add element 36, resize 40%, move it to the bottom right frame, duplicate, mirror.
Add element 11 in the middle resized 35%.
give it all a drop shadow.

Add element 1 (the numberless one ;), resize 30% move it to the top right of the right frame.

Add element 4, resize 40% and move it to the top left of the left frame.

Add element 3 resize 40% and move it up between the right and middle frame.
move the layer down behind the frame background, duplicate and move it to the
bottom left of the left frame.

Add your name on top, between the left and middle frame, I've used the font Airfoil Script SSi.
I gave mine a little white Gradient glow using Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact.
I've used the same drop shadow as before on all elements.

And remember to add the proper ©

Now for the Avatar

Open a new image 150x150
Select all, Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders, inside 4
Add a new raster and flood fill it white, deselect and
give the frame a drop shadow, 0, 0, 40, 8.
Select all, Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders, inside 2
Add a new raster and flood fill it #621a27
Go to the bottom layer.
Add paper 15, drag it down to get more dots.

Add frame 6, resize 28%, rotate 8 to the left, now the dots don't show
so let's give it new ones, Effects - texture effects - Weave ; 1, 4, 1, white, white,
fill gaps checked.
Use the magic wand to select inside the frame, add a paper background below the frame.
Add your tube of choise, I picked one from the tag and resized it 80%, Invert and delete
the access of the tube, deselect.
Back on the frame give it a subtle white glow using Alien Skin Eye Candy 5
Impact - Gradient Glow - Subtle White Glow,
under Basic drag the Glow Radius (pixels) down to 5.
Add element 36 resize 40% then 50% move it to the bottom of the frame.
Add element 1 resize 30% then 50% move it to the top left of the frame.

Sharpen the elements, cos all the resizing makes them a bit blury.
Add your name at the top right side.

And remember proper ©

Save a jpeg.

Hope you've had fun!!
