What you'll need:

I used mask number 219 you'll see on the right side they are bundled in bulk downloads :)

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.

I like BIG tags LOL.

Open up the pink circle frame element 29 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it if you need to.

Now take your dropper tool and pick two colors from your tube to use, I chose a pink and black then make a foreground/backgroud gradient. Add a new layer below your frame layer and flood fill it with your gradient. Now add your mask and merge group. I also added a new layer flood filled it with white and added the mask again making sure that layer was below the gradient layer. It just makes it a little brighter. On the gradient layer I also added the closeup tube mirrored then applied the mask to it and changed the blend mode to screen.

Open up the circle sparkles element 15 from the kit copy and paste it on  the masked tube layer re-size it if you need to.

Open up the monitor line element 30 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer again on the masked tube layer re-size it a little. Then take your eraser tool and erase what is overhanging the frame. Change the blend mode to soft light then add a drop shadow.
 
My settings were:
H 2
V 2
Opacity 60
Blur 4
Color Black

I also used the wine glass, cupcake,the black lollipop with lips, and the stuffed toy.I arranged them along the bottom of my tag of course re-sizing them so they fit nicely there.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer above everything else and add a drop shadow, same settings as earlier.

Add your name in your font and color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill it with white or a color of choice then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise uniform checked, 35% noise and monochrome checked. DO NOT deslect yet go to modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the color you used for your name move it below all the name layers and add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 2
V 2
Opacity 60
Blur 4.00

Open up the circle frame from the kit, copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it a little if you need to. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then to go selections-modify-expand by 5 copy and paste a paper as a new layer I used paper 2 from the kit then go to selections-invert and hit delete, move this layer below the frame layer.

Making sure you're on your frame layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 3 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice. I used white and added some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise then play with the settings to get something you like.

Then repeat and change the H&V to -2 and move this layer below the frame but above the paper layer.

Open up the mushroom house element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it so it fits nicely and move it to the bottom right of the frame and grass.

Take the wonderland word-art copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it if you need to and I placed it in the inside part of the circle frame so its above the paper layer then used my eraser tool to erase what was left outside the frame. Then take the club element from the kit copy and paste it in the same place re-size it a little and arrange it so its in the circle shape the word-art makes.

Now take another paper I used paper 7 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer making sure its the bottom layer on your palette. Then add your mask and merge group. Arrange it to your liking duplicate if you need to so it makes the back of the frame covered.

In your font of choice add your name and then add a gradient glow my settings shown below, then add a drop shadow my settings are the same as above except I didn't do the -2 for H&V. Change the blend mode of your text to Luminance L if you want it depends on where you place your text so this step is optional

Black Fantastix Forum Set Tutorial

This tutorial was written by Brunette on June 3rd 2012.
 Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
Do not copy and paste my tutorials or claim as your own you may link to them for group challenges.

What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a gorgeous tube by Xketch which you can purchase at The PSP Project HERE.

Be sure to check out all the other great artists there!

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Carpenter ICG for the name.
VanDerLee - Unplugged X - Interlace (but blinds in PSP will do the same effect)

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a 650x250 transparent canvas copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Resize it if you want. Duplicate it a few times arrange them to your liking along the canvas. Now I took my eraser tool and set it on Fuzz Soft setting and erased parts of the tube that overlapped one another, which blended it together. Merge these layers together.

Add a new layer and move it below the tube layer. Choose two colors from your tube and make a foreground/background gradient then flood fill this layer. Change the blend mode of the tube layer to Luminance L I also colorized the tube so it was gray.

Add another new layer make sure it is above the tube layer, flood fill it with the same gradient you did for the other layer and change the blend mode to screen.

This is where I added my plugin I used the default settings, if you do not have that plugin just play around with your blind settings under texture effects in the effects tab in PSP, find a setting you like.

Now we're going to do the borders. Go to the very bottom layer of your canvas it should be blank click it then  go to selections-modify-contract by 6 then invert add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice then add some noise if you like. Arrange this layer so its at the top of your layers. Repeat these steps but change the number you contract by to 3.

Now in your font add your name I also added some noise to it and used the color white, then add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 2
V 2
Opacity 60
Blur 4
Color Black

Add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpg whichever you prefer and we're done unless you do want to make the avatar too then keep reading!

Now for the avatar all I did was open up a new canvas 150x150 closed off the border layers and copyright layers on my banner then copy merged  and pasted it as a new layer on the 150x150 canvas. Arrange it to your liking even re-size it a little if you want. Then again go to the bottom layer then go to selections-modify-contract by 6 then invert add a new layer and flood fill with the same color as you did on the banner. Arrange this layer so its at the top of your layers. Repeat these steps but change the number you contract by to 3.

Of  course add your name or the first letter of your name it your full name won't fit then be sure to add your copyright info to your avatar as well.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
