Shock Therapy (ftu)

This tutorial was written on November 18th 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.
This is fairly easy and beginner level of psp is all you need.

Supplies Needed

Tube of Choice, I used the artwork of Joel Adams, you must have a proper license to use his work please visit CILM - HERE .
FTU Scrap Kit Used -'Asylum' a collab by 3 talented designers, Tamie, Kirsten & Pink Princess - HERE.
No Template Used.
Masks Used - WSL Mask #276 & WSL MAsk #29 by Chelle @ Wee Scots Lass Creations - HERE.
Plugin Used for name- Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow.

Save the masks to your psp mask folder before we begin...

Lets Start.

Open a new image in your psp by going to file tab and select new, choose 500x500 white image, click ok.

Take the building element from the kit and paste as a new layer, go to image, select resize and then choose to resize
till its to your liking, position in middle of canvas and with your mover tool move slightly up towards the top, just a little tho.

Take the wire mesh element from the kit and paste this as a new layer above the building layer, you may need to resize a little so its not much larger than the actual building.

Take the shock therapy wordart and paste this as a new layer on your canvas, risze as needed, i made mine quite small and with mover tool move this to just above the doors on the building, this is just a guide you can always place where you think it looks good, add a small dropshadow to this layer.

I also used the madness wordart, do the same as above step and rotate a little by going to image and select rotate then choose free rotate, i choose to rotate to the right by 10.00, place this on the right side of the building near the top like mine.

Ok activate the bottom white layer of your working canvas and paste a paper of your choice as a new layer, now go to layers and select load mask from disc and in the drop menu look for the first mask you saved at the start which is WSL Mask #276, use the following settings :-

Fit to canvas - checked .... Source luminace - checked .... Invert transparency - unchecked .... Hide Mask - checked, click ok, go to layers, merge group.

Now go back and activate the bottom white layer once more then repeat the mask step above but this time use the second mask we saved at the start which is wsl mask #29, this time use your deform tool and stretch the nodes out so the mask will be showing from behind the first mask layer.

Activate the top layer of your canvas now and paste your choosen tube/s, resize them a little if needed and place on either side of your canvas, i didnt use any dropshadow on my tubes this time as they are quite bold but you can add a dropshadow if you wish to.

I added some other elements from the kit and resized as needed, pick the ones you want to use and place each new element below the tube layers, add a small dropshadow to the elements if you wish.

Told you this one was quick and easy lol...

Now its time to crop or resize if you want to.

Add your name, artist info and copyright info.
Add a small gradient glow of your choice to your name and dropshadow.

Save as jpeg or .png.
