Respect the Sisterhood

This tutorial was written by me, Lori, on March 23, 2010.
And it was written for those who should already have a basic knowledge of working with PSP. I used Paint Shop Pro XI. Do not copy this tutorial and post it through any group or claim it as your own. Please share a text link only. If you use this tutorial please send me a copy of the tag you made with it to my e-mail to the left. I'd LOVE to see the creations and post into my slide show!

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. Resize canvas size to 800x800. You will crop and resize later. Close the original.

Open papers 1, 2, 3, 6 and10. Resize as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I've opened paper1, it tells me what percentage I'm viewing it at. For me it's usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you've done this, minimize for later use.
Minimize for later use.

Go to the original Bling layer, and with your eraser brush, erase some that is over your main tube and the other tubes, so it looks like it's wrapped around the tubes. See mine above for example.
