Little Sailor



This tutorial was written on July 20th 2009 by Susan aka Hippiedaze.
The idea for this tag is off my own head lol and any resemblance is purely coincidence.
General Knowledge of psp is required, tutorial was written in psp 9 but will work in other versions.

Supplies Needed

Tube of Choice, I used the artwork of Pinuptoons, you must have a proper license to use his work please visit CILM - HERE.
PTU Scrap Kit 'Sail Away' by Tishia
@ Designs by Tishia - HERE.
Template Used - SSAM Template #6 @ Scrapity Scrap and More - HERE.
Mask Used - Zuz Mask #56 by Zuzzanna - HERE.
Font of Choice.

(open supplies and save mask in your psp folder before you begin)

Lets Get Started...

Open the template, hit shift & d on your keyboard,this pastes the template as new image, close the original template. Delete the info layer.
Go to image and choose resize, select width & height to 80%, smartsize checked and make sure the tab resize all layers is checked, click ok.
Activate the bottom white layer, go to image, select canvas size and choose 500x500, click ok, if you get any transparent image showing grab your floodfill tool and fill with white.
Whether you resize here or at the end is up to you, i just find it easiest working this size.


Activate raster layer 2, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer, resize a little if you want to but not smaller than the marching ants then go to selections and select invert then hit delete on your keyboard, go back to selections and select none, delete the original layer now.

Repeat that step on the layers named raster 4 & 7 using different papers and delete the original layers as you work.

Activate raster 6 layer, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then take the wave element and paste as a new layer resize a little and place in the circle then when happy with placement go to selections and select invert then hit delete on your keyboard, do not deselect yet and activate the raster 6 circle layer again, paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer, resize a little then hit delete on your keyboard, the paper layer should be behind the wave right ? lol, go to selections and select none, delete the original layer now.

On all frame layers (raster 3, 5 & both copy of vector 1 layers) I left these white and simply added a dropshadow to blend with the rest of the tag but you can colour or fill them as you wish.

Make sure your on the top layer of your canvas and take the lighthouse from the kit and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking and place on the right side of your tag then add a dropshadow.

Take the lifesaver ring and paste this as a new layer on your canvas, resize quite a bit till its to your liking and place on top of the lighthouse so it looks hanging from the rails, add a dropshadow to this layer.

Take the little sailboat and paste as a new layer, resize as needed and place on the waves, add a dropshadow.

Take the signpost element and paste a new layer, resize as needed and place on the left side of your tag, add a dropshadow to this layer too.

Take the anchor element, bottle element and kit element and paste these as new layers, resize as needed and place where you want on your tag, add a dropshadow to each layer.


Activate the bottom white layer now and paste a paper from the kit as a new layer, go to layers, select load mask from disc then look for the mask you saved at the start (zuz #56), make sure the following settings are checked :-
Fit to canvas - checked .... Source luminace - checked .... Invert transparency - unchecked
Hide Mask - checked.
Go to layers, merge group & resize to suit your tag using the deform tool if needed till you get it how you want it.


Back to the top layer of your canvas, paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed and place in the middle of your tag or where it looks best, add a dropshadow to the tube layer.

Crop or resize any excess white now if you wish to.

Add your name, artist info & copyright info.

Save as jpeg or .png.
and we're done lol.
