This tutorial was written by Jenny on 8-27-2009. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Chrissy Clark. You need a license to use her artwork. I am licensed through Artistic Minds Inc.
You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.


Supplies Needed:
1 tube of choice

Font of choice (I'm using Treats)

Plugins Needed but Optional:
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (optional)
dsb flux bright noise (optional)
Animation Shop (optional)
Xenofex 2 Constellation (optional)


Open a new canvas 600 x 600 flood fill white. We'll resize later.

New Raster Layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste Paper Text into selection, select none, apply mask.

Copy & Paste frame of choice, resize 85%, apply a fat gradient glow.

Copy & Paste Paper Stripes as a new layer, resize 50%, move below frame, select inside frame with magic wand, modify, expand 3, selections,invert,delete on paper layer, select none.

Copy & Paste bat as a new layer, resize 50% then again 65%, add drop shadow, place on the frame to your liking, duplicate, mirror, move up a bit, move the original over and below the duplicate, resize 75%.

Copy & Paste pumpkin as a new layer, resize 75%, add drop shadow and place to the left of the frame.

Copy & Paste Glitter Purple as a new layer, move below frame layer and above mask layer.

Copy & Paste Glitter Orange as a new layer, placing it beside the Glitter Purple layer.

Copy & Paste label as a new layer, resize 50%, place under the top bat, add drop shadow.

Now on your tube layer, if you're using the same as me or one similar, you can click on certain spots with the magic wand (see my tag), effects, plugins, dsb flux bright noise, 25. We are just going to give it that glitter look-not actually animate it so when you apply that you will then need to click select none.

Now resize your canvas if you want- do not merge any layers if you plan on animating.

Add copyright info and text.

Now to animate if you want to:
Open animation shop.
Back in PSP- Hide spider web, paper, mask, all glitter, mask and background layer.
Now merge all other layers visible. Unhide other layers, hide merged layer.

Select the spider web layer, effects, plugins, Xenofex 2 Constellation with these settings:

1.98

30

20

0

100

75

45

keep original

Random Seed: 5000

Now copy merged and paste as a new animation in animation shop.

Back in PSP, undo animation, apply it again changing the Random Seed by clicking on it once, copy merged and paste after animation in animation shop.
You will need to repeat this step once more.

Back in PSP, copy the Merged layer only, paste as a new animation in animation shop.

Now on your spider web layers (there should be 3), select all, Propagate Paste, copy the top layer and paste into selected frame.

Now you will want to be sure you place it over the spider web in the appropriate place.

You can now try your animation and see if it's going too fast or too slow for you and change accordingly.
