Psp tutorial: I'm In For Spring


This tutorial is entirely my own idea. The man tube was created by Karine Dreams.


The other tubes are created by me. Leave all layers from the tubes intact.
The tubes can always be used for personal stuff, you only have to ask permission first if you would like to use them in a tutorial.

This tutorial will be written in English.

==========

I've made this tutorial in PSP X4, but can be made in other PSP versions as well. Don't forget to save your work from time to time. I assume you know how to work with the Mirror and Flip script in PSP X4.


Materials: 
Blue Flowers tube - here.
Blue Sky tube - here.
Mayflowers tube - here.
Download all other materials here.

Place the brush in the Brushes folder.


Plugins:
Filters Unlimited 2.0 - here.
Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow.
Alf's Power Signs - Dunes. Import this plugin in Unlimited 2.0.
Mura's Meister - Copies.
Simple - Pizza Slice Mirror.
Before opening Corel Paint Shop Pro, install the plugins first.

Foreground colour: #aad1fa.
Background colour: #3b628b.



1) Open a new transparent image of 750 x 600 px.
2) Flood fill the canvas with the background colour.
3) Activate the Rulers. If they aren't activated yet, go to View ---> Rulers. Press on K. Move the layer with your mouse to the top, let the bottom of the layer coincide with 170px on the ruler. See the example below.


4) Duplicate the layer and then flip it. Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge All.
5) Activate the Magic Wand tool and select the transparent part in the middle. Fill the transparent part with the foreground colour. This is how your image should look like now:


6) Select with the Magic Wand the top blue section. Effects ---> Plugins ---> Graphics Plus ---> Cross Shadow ---> Default ---> ok.
7) Selections ---> Promote Selection to Layer. Selections ---> Select none.
8) Flip the promoted selection. Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge down.

10) Effects ---> Plugins ---> I.C.Net Software ---> Filters Unlimited 2.0 ---> Alf's Power Signs --- Dunes ---> Default ---> Apply.
11) Change the Blend mode from this layer to Overlay.
12) Selections ---> Float. Selections ---> Defloat.
13) Effects ---> Reflection Effects ---> Kaleidoscope and use the following settings:


14) Effects ---> Edge effects ---> Enhance more.
15) Selections ---> Select none.
16) Active the Preset Shape tool and use the Rectangle. Draw a small bar of 50px wide from 50px to 100px with help of the ruler. See the example below.


17) Layers ---> Convert to Raster Layer. Adjust ---> Hue and Saturation ---> Hue/Saturation/Lightness ---> and use the following settings:

19) Duplicate this layer and then mirror it. Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge down.
20) Adjust ---> Hue and Saturation ---> Colorize and use the following settings:
Hue: 150; Saturation: 228.
21) Open the tube "Mayflowers-Nolver_27052015". Copy the "Mayflowers scenery (misted)" and paste it as new layer on your image.
22) Change the blend mode of this layer in Lighten.
23) Open the tube "Blue_Flowers-Nolver_28052015". Copy the layer "Blue Flower 3 (misted)" and paste it as new layer on your image. Move the layer to the right and change the blend mode of this layer into Screen. See the example below.


24) Paste the tube again (it is still in the memory), and move it a bit below the other flower layer. See the example below.


25) Go back to the tube "Blue_Flowers-Nolver_28052015". Copy the layer "Blue Flower 1" and paste it as new layer on your image.
26) Reduce the image with 50% by going to Image ---> Resize: Width and height: 50%, bicubic, "Resize all layers" unchecked.
27) Move the layer to the right side, at the bottom. See the example below.

30) Layers ---> Arrange ---> Move Down. Press on Ctrl-Y 5 times.
31) Change the blend mode of this layer in Lighten.
32) Activate the top layer. Open the tube "_k@rine_ dreams _Man_2608_Octobre_2013". Copy and paste it as new layer on your image.
33) Reduce the layer with 75%, "Resize all layers" not checked. Move the layer to the left, see the example below.


34) Effects ---> 3D Effects ---> Drop Shadow and use the following settings:


35) Layers ---> Merge ---> Merge All. Image ---> Copy.

46) Image ---> Add borders, 2px, foreground colour, symmetric.
47) Add a new raster layer and change the foreground colour into white.
48) Activate the brush In_For_Spring-Nolver and change the foreground colour to white. Punch one time with the brush on your image wherever it pleases you.
