This is how I use tag templates

Open template Duplicate the template close out the original

I start at the bottom and work my way up

To add papers from scrap kits stand on a template layer go to selections - select all - float - defloat copy your paper and paste as a new layer right click on the raster layer ( paper ) and select Promote selection to layer and then delete the paper you pasted - selections - select none and keep doing this until you have papers where you want them with the other template layers and be sure to delete the original template layers

If you want to use a gradient you can achieve this from the Materials Palette - Click on the background and fill properties and choose a dark color then click on foreground and stroke properties and choose a lighter color from the same color you used or a different color then in that same window select the gradient tab and set it up how you want

Now once your gradient is all ready to go stand on the template layer you want to fill with the gradient selections - select all - float - defloat on this same layer - Layers - new raster layer and fill the new raster layer with the gradient selections select none - delete the original template layer

If you want to add borders to your template shapes such as circles, squares , stand on a template layer shape selections- select all - float - defloat - selections modify - select selection borders- select both sides - Border width - your choice - what ever works with what your creating - then add your paper to it or flood fill with color or a gradient add a new raster layer and flood fill the selection and make sure this layer is above the template layer - deselect - add noise if you like etc.

PostHeaderIcon Moving!

Good evening friends (:

We are moving this month ( Mid April ) 2012
and doing things already to prep for our big move
so I won't be on my main computer for some time!
But will check facebook from my android!

And also will be putting away my computer
in June 2012 indefinitely and only using my android.
My fiance graduates from College in June 2012
and we need to spend much needed time together.
He's been in College a few years. And I will be focusing
on my health problems ~ I have 2 beautiful grand daughters
that are my whole world and want to be around for them
many more years to come!!! I appreciate all the love
you have shown me on my blog and will miss you all.
I will leave my blog open as I know a lot of tutorial writers
use my templates in their tuts, After June 2012 you are free to share
my templates if you find a dead link and someone else has it,
they may share it with you.
But never under any circumstances claim my work as your own.


Hugs xx Punky xx

PostHeaderIcon PSP Trick

I want to share with y'all a neat lil trick
to avoid those pesky stray left over pixels
from tubes and papers .. It has always been
a pain in the tookus to clean them up after finding
them on your finished already gifted tag !
Now I don't know why I didn't think of this before lol
as I have been using this method for other purposes!

When adding a paper or tube lets say to a template!
1st of course you stand on the template layer you need
selections - select all - selections defloat
paste paper or tube as a new layer!

After the paper or tube is pasted stand on it's layer not the
template layer! right click on it's layer and select
promote selection to layer then delete the original tube or paper
and original template layer
selections - select none
and that's it :) no more stray pixels
off to the sides, top and bottom .. depending it's location
Please leave me a comment if you do this already and no one
has told me about it or you didn't think of it as I did not
until the other day touche!

P.S To all you psp tutorial writers!
You may use this method in your tutorials
if you so wish, I'd like this to be apart
of tutorials others write to make it easier
on the tagger (: Hugs xx Punky xx
