Love Hurts

Love Hurts

This tutorial was written by Jenny on 3-1-2009. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Rachael Tallamy. You need a license to use her artwork.

Supplies Needed:
Image of choice (I'm using The Visitor by Rachael Tallamy)
Broken Wing PTU Scrapkit by Just A Girl's Designs
Mask of choice (I'm using WSL_Mask81 by Weescotslass)
2 Fonts of Choice (I'm using Fair Weather Regular ttnorm and La Protenia de la Boca)
Animation Shop (optional)

Open a new canvas 550 x 550 and flood fill white.
Using a paper of choice from the kit, apply your mask layer first.

Copy and Paste Memory box as a new layer, resize to around 65-75 % depending on if you're going to leave the tag this size or resize it smaller, add drop shadow.

Copy and paste splatter as a new layer, resizing to around 85% and keeping above the Memory Box.

Now the next part is simple. Just pick out the accessories from the kit that you want to use and open them (such as feather flower,couple of flowers of choice,feather,stitched heart,roses and doodles), copy and paste each one as a new layer and place to your liking inside the Memory Box, you may need to resize them a bit and add a drop shadow to each. I duplicated several of the items,image,mirror or image, mirror, flip. See my tag for more placement info.

Once you have all that place to your liking, open note paper1,image, rotate clockwise 90, copy and paste as a new layer into your working canvas, you may need to resize it just a little, add drop shadow.

Copy and paste frame of choice as a new layer, resize/rotate if needed, then copy and paste your image of choice, resizing if needed and place under frame. Merge frame and image layer together. Place framed image above the note paper so that a bit of the edges from the paper are sticking out on each side.

Copy and paste candle as a new layer,resize and add drop shadow.

Now you can resize or crop your tag.

Add copyright info, merge visible,add text and you're done.....unless you want to animate the candle flame as mine is in the example (although you probably can't see the animation in the preview)

If you wish to animate then please do not merge, instead, select the candle layer,
now select the warp brush from your tools with these settings:

Now using the warp tool on the flame start at the bottom and with your right clicker of the mouse, pull it up just a little bit, copy merged and paste as a new animation in animation shop.

Back to PSP, repeat the above step except bring the flame a little bit more upwards.

Repeat again doing the same as above with the flame.

Back in animation shop you should now have 3 layers and when you run animation your flame should now flicker.

Save as a gif and you're done.
