My Daughter was born on Feb 14, 2010 and she is wonderfully healthy! Thank you for all the wonderful emails about everything. I just wanted to say that for right now since life has gotten so busy I am working mainly on tags and layouts. There will be the occasional tutorial but not as many as before. I am sorry if this causes any problems, but family comes first! I hope this finds all my followers doing well! Blessed Be! ~Lori

Luck of the Irish (ANIMATED)

  • Luck of the Irish
  • All of my tutorials are written for someone with a working knowledge of PSP. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely unintentional.
  • This tut will require PSP (I used X2 but any will do) And Animation Shop.
  • Scrap kit used is Saint Patrick's by Lisa's Designs and is FTU and can be found HERE.
  • Tube is called St Patty and is by voodoo4u2nv@ Deviant art and can be found HERE
  • Mask is VIX_31 and included in supplies.
  • Rainbow is by Night Owl bless her heart you can enjoy her work at and the rainbow is also included in my supplies
  • My Supplies can be downloaded HERE
  • Here we go! Remember to save oftin!
  • Open both the light and dark green glitter papers and re size them both to 150%. Add the mask to the paper that you wish to me your trees, Place a drop shadow on the tree layer if you would wish. COPY MERGED and then PASTE to the background layer.
  • Add other embellishments and tube how you would like them, and add drop shadows if you would wish.
  • DO NOT forget all copyrights!!
  • MERGE ALL layers and then lock them.
  • COPY MERGED and transfer to Animation Shop as a new animation. CTRL+SHIFT+L until you have 31 frames in this animation.
  • Open the Rainbow and DELETE the BLACK frame. This should leave you with 31 frames in this animation. While the rainbow is your working animation CTRL+C. MOVE to the tag being your working animation and CTRL+E. DROP it where you would like it. RUN to see the effect you have. If you do not like it you can EDIT, UNDO PASTE and redo it for the effect you would like.
  • Back in PSP add a new raster layer to your tag. On this layer put the name you would like on the tag and make sure it is positioned where you would like it. HIDE the base layer by clicking on the eye in that layer in the layers palette, Now COPY MERGED and paste it over in Animation Shop. Again you need 31 frames of this (CTRL+SHIFT+L) COPY (CTRL+C) and PASTE (CTRL+E) into the tag with the rainbow already on it.
  • Run Animation and save! I hope you had fun with this tut Blessed Be ~Lorilynn
