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!!

Queen of Hearts

Tutorial is made in PSP10 and Animation Shop 3


My Alice in Wonderland kit HERE

Mask nr 60 HERE

wordart and the little decor in the keyhole frame, to lighten your load ;) HERE

Licensed artist work is by Keith Garvey

Plugins used;

Twirl effect included in PSP ;)

Font is the King & Queen font

Let's start

Open a new image 600x600, flood fill white. Copy paper 4, paste as new raster
and load DBV Mask60 to it, merge group.
Add the keyhole frame, resize it 60%, use the magic wand to select inside it.
Selections - modify - expand 3. Add a new raster layer below the frame.
Copy paper 7 and paste into selection. Deselect and duplicate it 4 times (you
want 5 in total). Selection - Select all - float - defloat.
Go to Effects - Distortion Effects - Twirl... Degrees : 200.
Click the layer below and ad the same Twirl Degrees : 300, on the third one 400 and 
the last one 500. (The original stays untwirled ;) Close the eye on the 3 middle ones, 
that way you're ready to animate later.

Now start decorating :))
Copy the small elements I included to place in the keyhole frame.
Between the keyhole background and the masked layer I've added on the left side, 
element 16 resized 50% and mirrored, 
the queen of hearts wordart,
the invitation card resized 40% and rotated a bit to the right (I just used the pick tool
to rotate), 
element 18 resized 60%, 
the swing resized 60%,
and the old tree on the right resized 50%, 

Now move to the top layer and start adding more ;)
I've added:
element 9 resized 50%
element 10 resized 50%
element 2 resized 45% and mirrored
element 26 resized 40% and mirrored
element 29 resized 30% and mirrored
and the off with their heads wordart

And of cors a tube of choice ;)

Drop shadow on most of my elements is -2, -2, 40, 10
apart from the hovering cups in the air didn't look good with that
so I think they got one like 2, 4, 30, 4.

Add name and proper © 

Ready to animate?

Crop the tag to remove access white areas.

Copy merged
Paste as new animation in ani shop
Close the top twirled keyhole background layer, and open the next one,
copy merged again and paste after current in ani shop
Do the same to the next 2 keyhole backgrounds

Select all 4 frames and change frame properties to 20.
view animation and save as optimized octree.

And you're done

Hope you've had fun.
