Tangled featuring Merry Xmas & Keith Garvey

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 Merry Xmas by Bubble's Dream.
Tube of choice, I used the art of ©Keith Garvey which requires a license which may be purchased at his store.
Mask of choice, I used zuzzanna_mask75, and you may get it here.
Font of choice, I used Santa's Sleigh.

Xero ~ Porcelain

Let's begin.
Open a new image, 750x750 you will re-size later.
Copy and paste as a new layer a paper from your kit.
Apply the mask; layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk.
Merge the mask; layers, merge, Merge group.
Now choose your elements that you'd like to start with, re-size as needed.
I re-sized the tree 110, and the ornaments 70.
Use the manual color corrector to adjust the colors of the present element to vary the shades of the gifts.
Repeat the color correction as needed on the elements to help blend the colors as needed.
Now place your tube add a drop shadow of choice, I used 0,0,100,10.
Apply Porcelain with these settings:

If these settings don't work use those that compliment your tube.
Now duplicate and add a Gaussian Blur of 3 (Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur) then adjust the properties to Overlay.
Finish placing your elements, and use your erase tool to blend the ribbon elements if you've used my tag as a guide.
When placing the lights element from your kit use the mesh warp tool to curve them how you'd like. 
If you'd like you can manual color correct the lights as well. After using the mesh warp duplicate and mirror.
Position as desired then duplicate again.use the manual color correct on the bottom layer.
Then go to the top layer and using the erase tool erase the lights on this layer bur leave the "wire" so the two layers blend.
Once you've achieved your desired outcome, re-size, add your copyright and your name.
Thank you for trying out my tutorial.


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!!!
