PTU - Honoring Mom

This tutorial was written by me on May 12, 2012, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.

Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due.

As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.


Image of choice - This image is my own of my Mother taken by me in 1984 shortly before her unexpected death


FTU Scrap Kit - FriendshipCollection - Tania Mendes by the very talented Bel Vidotti

Font of choice – I used Before the Rain

Mask of choice – I chose Becky_mask009

In psp, open a new image 650x650

Open Frame 02 – C/P as new layer – resize and sharpen

Using magic wand, click inside frame – Selections_Modify_Expand_3

C/P image of choice as a new layer below frame – position to your liking –

In the layer palette – right click image layer_Promote Selection To Layer – De-select

Delete original image layer

Now add any elements of choice – resizing – sharpening – rotating to your liking

I chose to use:


Flowers01 – image flipped and rotated to the right 90 degrees



When you have everything in place, add a drop shadow to each layer

My settings were_2_-5_50_5_black

Open mask of choice in psp

Add a new layer to bottom of image

Either flood fill with a color of choice, or go to Selections_Select All and C/P a paper of choice from the kit into selection I used paper01

Select none

Layers_NewMaskLayer_From Image_find your mask_apply

Right click on mask layer in layer palette_Merge_Merge Group

Add all copyright info and image credits

Choosing a clear font, add the name of the person in the photo to the Tag01, using nodes to rotate and shrink to fit

Convert to Raster – I did not add a drop shadow to this as I wanted it to stay clear

Add your name in font of choice – Mine was “Before The Rain” at 72_Black

Effects_EyeCandy4000_Gradient Glow_3_25_100_color of choice – (#c381bf )

Sharpen and add drop shadow

That’s it! You now have a wonderful tag to honor your loved one with
