Let's Rock this Tutorial!!

Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.

Resize Canvas to 750x750 pixels, you may resize later.

Open papers 4, 5, 12, 16 and QP-SC-PP (it has no number) and both the masks. Minimize for later use.

Go to raster1, select-All-float-defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 5 into selection, go to layers-new mask layer, from image and add mask WSL mask #75, go to layers-merge-merge group. Do this again but using mask Vix #291 using the same paper.

Go to the circle layer, Selections-all-add new raster layer and paste paper 4 into selection, without deselecting, go back to circle layer, selections-float-defloat-invert, go to the paper4 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Open element circle frame2, copy and paste as a new layer, over the paper4 circle layer.

Go to rectangles 1 and 2, open element heartframe, re-size 217x213 pixels, copy and paste one over the rectangle on the right, duplicate layer, go to image-mirror and arrange over the rectangle on the left, delete both rectangles. For each heart, go to effects-plugins-eyecandy 4000-glass using these settings:

Go to frame2 layer, open element TRISCALLOPEDFRAME, re-size 324x138 pixels, copy and paste over left side of frame2, making sure only two of the frames are showing.
Duplicate layer, and with your pick tool, slide over the the right side of frame2, making sure only two of the frames are showing. Making sure the top frame is active, merge down to the original frame element, rename this layer purple frame and delete original frame from template.

Open paper 16, go to purple frame layer and add new raster layer below it. Select-All, paste paper16 into the selection. Deselect. Go to the purple frame and with your magic wand, set to add (shift) and color, select inside each frame, go to Selections-modify-expand by 7, Selections-invert, go back to the paper layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard.

Open element butterflyframe, re-size 199x219 pixels, copy and paste above the purple frame layer, arrange over square3, the pink square on the bottom left, duplicate layer, go to image-mirror and arrange over square1 at the top right. Making sure the top frame is active, merge down to the original frame element. Delete layers, squares 1-4. Do the same to these frames as you did just above to the vertical frame using paper12 and arranging below the vertical frame.

Then merge the butterfly frames down to the purple frame element.

Add a tube of choice under the frame layer, re-size to liking, and arrange in any of the frames. Go to the frame layer, with your magic wand, select inside the frame w/the tube, go to selections-modify-expand by 7-invert, activate the tube layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Do this with each frame until you have the purple frames and 2 butterfly frames with a tube. Go to the first tube layer and merge down until all tubes are on one layer.

Go to effects-xero-porcelain with the below settings :




Open triframe element, go to image-rotate right, resize 124x285 pixels, copy and paste above the frame1 layer, duplicate and arrange so there are 5 frames, go to layers-merge-down.

If you are not doing animation, stop here!!

ANIMATION:

Remember the layer with all the tubes in the frames? Go to that layer, duplicate. (I'm doing this with xenofex 1.0, if you are using the newer version this may be different, just make sure the visiblity is set to 70 in the end process.) Go to the original layer, (should be the bottom one) and set visiblity to 70. Go to the top layer, effects-xenofex- constellation with the following settings:
star size: 15
sharpness: 74
overdrive: 48
random speed: 50

Go to edit, copy merged and paste as new animation in animation shop. Back in paint shop pro, undo last command (the constellationsettings). Now
continue doing this changing the speed by 10 each time, till you hit 100, this should give you six layers.

Save in animation your 'normal' way.....
