Gothic Love featuring Gothic Hearts & Zindy

This tutorial was written entirely by me, using PSP9, any resemblance to any other is purely coincidental.
This tutorial should work with any version of PSP.
This tutorial is written with the belief that you have a working knowledge of PSP, but is also suitable for beginners.

Materials you will need:
Scrap Kit of choice, I used Gothic Heart by CBJ Scraps.
Tubes of choice, I used the art of ©Zindy S. D. Nielsen which requires a license which may be purchased at Zindy Zone Store.
Mask of choice, I used NikMask10, and you may purchase it here.
Font of choice, I used Black Chancery.

EyeCandy4000 ~~ Gradient Glow
Xero ~~ Radiance

Let's begin.

Open a new image, 750x750 you will re-size later.
Begin with sparkles from your kit, copy and paste several layers around on your image to scatter them around evenly then merge visible.
(Layers, Merge, Merge visible)
Copy and paste your paper choice into the image then apply your mask (Layers, Load/save mask, Load mask from disk).
Merge the group (Layers, merge, Merge group).
Choose words elements from your kit and place above the mask layer and re-size as necessary, apply the same mask and merge the group.
Place your first tube as desired add a drop shadow of choice I used 6,6,60,12. Then apply Radiance with these settings:

Add a gradient glow with these settings:

Now Place your second tube as desired and apply the same drop shadow then radiance with these settings:

Add a gradient glow. You may adjust the gradient glow as needed to fit your needs on all of the elements and tubes this applies to Radiance as well. Sometimes you need to adjust the settings to suit your tube or your element.
Begin to place your elements round your tubes as needed.
For your frame element re-size and position as desired.
Re-size your tubes down to fit the frame.
On the frame layer use your magic wand tool and the shift key to select inside each of the frames.
Position your tubes "in" the frame using your erase tool to erase any overlapping bits then merge the layers and invert and delete.(Shift+Ctrl+I) then click delete. Select None or Ctrl D.
Move the small tube layer beneath the frame layer and duplicate.
On the original layer change the properties to Luminance.
On the duplicate layer add a gaussian blur of 2 (Adjust, blur, Gaussian blur) then change prperties to overlay.
Adjust the transparency to 80 or whatever your choice is.
Continue placing your elements as desired using duplicates and your erase tool to help blend the elements as desired.
You may also use your Radiance or gradient glow filter to help certain elements pop.
To adust the colors/hue of elements to compliment your tubes you may use the manual color correction or the colorize tool.
Play with your filters to achieve your vision.
Once you have achieved the desired reult, re-size, add your copyright and your name.
You have now completed this tutorial, thanks for giving it a try.


Kaci's Kits & Kadoodles

Hi, I'm Kaci. Nope not that Kaci, the other one. I am still fairly new to PSPing compared to some and I love it!! I want to continue to learn so I can get better and continue making my own scrap kits. I love to make new friends so stop by and visit my little corner over here.

I'm still learning to blog too, so be patient while I figure this out, and I'm learning to do blog layouts, lol. I'm happy to have a few followers and look forward to more.

I've recently ventured into Digital scrap-booking store ownership with friends, so feel free to check out the links on the page.

I also love to knit, crochet (not really good at that just yet), read, cook, bake and learn new things. Most of what I post will probably be PSP related, but Iwill occasionally vent here too. Please leave a comment let me know what you think or if you want me to try something for a freebie.

I would love to see the results of my tutorials if you want to share. Please email them to me at I look forward to seeing results of my tuts so come on email me lol!!!


Leave a bit of Love
