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

Butterfly Blues

  • For this tutorial I used the wonderful work of Rachel in a kit called Blue Denum. The kit can be found HERE
  • I also used the wonderful artwork of Keith Garvey and you can find all his tubes (all are PTU) at Mypsptubes HERE
  • I used a butterfly wing dmsk, I am unsure where I got this from, if it is yours PLEASE let me know and I will give you credit as soon as I get your mail.
  • Lets get started.....
  • First you will want to pick two papers for the kit, one for your background and one for the butterfly wings.
  • Apply the mask below to the butterfly wing paper and then paste it on to your background paper.
  • Add your tube and resize or tweek the position as you would like it.
  • Apply a drop shadow if desired.
  • At this point I merged my tube and wing layers just to make life easier as I went in case they needed resized again.
  • PIck a frame of choice, I liked the square one best but whatever you want it's your tag after all Ü
  • Apply a slight drop shadow, I used 5, 5, 100, black.
  • Add embelishments, and word art as you would like, and shadows.
  • Remember all copyrights and your mark!!
  • Resize and save.
  • Hope you enjoyed and blessed be... Lorilynn Ü
