Girlie Girl

If you have Paint Shop Pro, you may want to check out the new kit by Tinx Scraps (aka Tonie Posers) called Girlie Girl http://digifoxsstudio.net/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_108&products_id=1926


The entire kit is in PSP format, including the posers, so those who use other imaging programs are unfortunately out of luck, because while PSP can open almost all image formats, only PSP can open PSP format.

I've made 2 tags, with tutorials.

Tutorial for “Girlie Girl” tag

What I used:
Girlie Girl kit by Tinx Scraps (aka Tonie Posers) http://digifoxsstudio.net/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_108&products_id=1926
Paint Shop Pro XI (Use “Pick” tool for easy resizing of elements.)

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use preset tool to create a heart. Fill with background of choice (paper 16).
2. Choose your photo & a frame (plain frame 3). If you don’t have a photo, copy the head & shoulders of the clipart figure in the next step. Copy & paste photo, then copy & paste the frame. Resize both as needed. Highlight photo & frame in layers palette & merge together. Position as desired & apply drop shadow.
3. Choose a clip art figure or poser (girlie). Copy & paste, resizing & positioning as desired. Apply drop shadow.
4. Copy & paste hearts 1, resizing as needed. Move layer down so that the string is behind the photo in the frame. Apply drop shadow.
5. Enter text. I used Garamond Bold Italics 18. I then applied Effects>3D>inner bevel>soft edge. Use a smaller size font for the tag information.
6. Merge visible & save.
