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

For this tutorial I have used the following supplies

  2.     Alien Skin Xenofix 2   Constellation Available in quick links

Thank you Gina for allowing me to use your kit as well as adding me to your Creative Team!

Let us begin,
  •     First open your background and foreground papers of choice.
  •     Apply Mask to your foreground paper.  Merge Group, Copy and paste onto your background paper.
  •     Copy and paste your tube where you would like
  •     Add elements as desired.  I have used NH Botanical Flower 4, NH Branch 3,  NH Double tag 3, NH Fabric Leaves deco 1 and NH Scarecrow 4.  Resize and place as desired.
  •     Add all wording (I Have used a gradient glow on my tag by changing the green glow setting in Eye Candy Impact 5 to a white)
  •     Add all copyrights
  •     Resize tag as desired.
  •     Hide background and mask layers.
  •     Merge Visable (This should merge your elements, tube and wording.)
  •     Hide Elements layer
  •     Unhide bacground and mask layer.
  •     make sure in the layers palette layer you are selected on the mask layer
  •     Go into your Xenofix and apply the following settings: (remember the seed number does not matter right now)
  •     Copy Merged
  •     Paste into Animation Shop as a new animation
  •     **Back in PSP UNDO constellation
  •     Now go back to the Effects panel and redo the effect, hitting the random seed button to change the placement of the stars
  •     Copy Merged
  •     Paste AFTER the current frame** (Redo from ** to **  at least 2 more times.  I will assume you have done it 2 more times for a total of 4 frames for the remainder of this tut)
  •     Back in PSP HIDE Mask and background layers and UNHIDE the tube layer
  •     Copy
  •     Paste into Animation shop as a new animation. Now hit CTRL+L 3x this will give you a total of 4 frames just like the other animation. (If you have more then 4 just add the extras by hitting Ctrl+L once more for each layer)
  •     Now CTRL+A (Select all) Ctrl+C (Copy)
  •     Click on the mask layer
  •     CTRL + A (Select all) and then CTRL+E Paste and click where you would like the layer placed
  •     Run and Save Animation =)
