Shake Ur Shamrocks Tutorial for Black Window Creations...

This tutorial is completely my own and any similarity is just pure coincidence...

Supplies Needed:

I use PSP X5

Tube of Choice, Im using in this one,Patty from Soul Designer, which you can purchase HERE

Scrap Kit: Shake Ur Shamrocks By Black Widow Creations which you can purchase HERE

Font of Choice I used Xiphos by Iconian Fonts HERE for free

Ok Lets get Started...

Open Up a new image, 900 x 900 (this tends to work better when using more elements)

It will look big but you will resize later...

Now choose
and place it in your new image.
 Resize by 125 %.

Next I added Patty,Customize her to your liking(I gave her green clothes and the shamrockchocker) and place her in your image.
Place her in front of the frame, re-size by 50% and position as needed.
Duplicate your tube, and place one tube layer behind the frame layer,hide top layer then click on bottom image, and erase everything on the
outside of the frame... Next go back to top tube layer and erase ONLY the part of the tube outside the frame thats on the bottom.Dont worry if you get
some of the inside of the bottom, this is why we duplicated it :) LEAVE TOP OF TUBE AS IS DO NOT ERASE... this will give the effect of her standing
inside the frame.

On bottom layer of tube, give her a drop shadow, Attributes Veritical= 10 Horizonal= 0 Opacity= 45 Blur=5.00 Color= Black

Next pick a paper of your choice, I picked BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_PP10, Place paper in image, and position it the layer behind
your bottom tube layer.

Now click on frame layer, and use the magic wand tool, and click inside the circle of the frame.Go up to selections, modify, expand, enter 10 in number of pixles,
go back up to selections and click invert. Now click on paper layer, and go up to edit and chose cut.Now go back up and select NONE.
This will remove all excess paper surrounding the frame.

Next pick out some more elements, I chose BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El6, BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El8,BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El9,BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El24,
BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El4, BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El28...

Place Pot of gold (el24) In front of top tube layer, resize to your liking,I chose 75%, and place in bottom left corner.
Next place balloons (el9), they do not need resized but you can if you would prefer. Next duplicate them place one layer
abover frame layer, and one below paper layer, go back to top balloons and erase the strings on top of frame, this will
make it look like the strings are behind the frame, while the balloons are still in front.
Now place tiara (el8)on top layer.Resize by 50%, and place in bottom right corner.
Next place coins in image behind pot of gold, resize by 50%, duplicate and flip horizonal, and place one behind each
each side of the pot of gold.
Now place Shamrock (el28)on bottom layer behind balloons, resize by 95%, this will look like another balloon.

Next pick BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El11,BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El12,BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El14,BWC_ShakeUrShamrocks_El37,

Take hat(El42) place it in front of pot of gold resize 85%,place harps(el12) on layer above frame, behind top tube layer...
put it between balloons and pot of gold, as shown in tag. Next duplicate, flip horizonal and place it top right corner, on
same layer.
Next place mug(el11) of beer, above tiara layer, resize 50% and place behind the tiara but off to the side as shown in tag.
Now place other drink (el14) in front of the mug,resize drink by 50% as well and adjust it to your liking.
Lastly place lips(el37) in image resize by 50% and place as shown in tag above frame layer.

Almost done....

Merge visible , Re-size to your liking(I like 600x600)then add the artist and your copyrights :) and choose your desired font,
for this I used,Xiphos by Iconia Fonts, I used red and green that are within the tag.
Adjust size as desired.

And save as a PNG so that its transparent...
