Making a Wink

Photobucket
I used the fantastic art of Popeye Wong and a scrap kit from Clarey, called spring breeze.
Thanks for sharing your talent Popeye and Clarey.

I'll be paying more attention to teaching the wink, than making the complete tag.

Open your tubes in PSP.Open a new canvas depending on the tag you're making.

Put together your tag.If you want to add any glitter layers do that now.
I added glitter to my text.
3 layers of text, added noise to each layer @ 25.

The last layer/frame is the one we are going to make wink.
So you can put together your first 2 frames now.
X out glitter layers 2 & 3.
Edit, copy merged,
Over to animation Shop, edit,paste as a new animation.
Repeat that step for your second glitter layer.
Make sure you X out glitter layer 1.
Now you have 2 frames in animation shop.
Back to PSP.
UnX glitter layer 3.
Highlight the tube layer on your layer palette.
Photobucket
You might want to zoom in on the eye so you can have a better look at the lines we want to move.
Photobucket
In this tut, I will be using my favorite mover, the "warp brush".
Here are the settings.
Photobucket
Take a good look at the eye. The top lid lash line is where we are going to begin to warp, pushing it down.
Photobucket
REMEMBER, JUST A BIT AT A TIME WARPING.
Slowly push the top lid to meet the bottom lid.
When you almost have the lid closed, begin pushing up on the bottom lash line to meet the top lid.
Photobucket

You have your lid closed and now it's time to take that last layer over to animation shop and put it together with the others.
This is how your layer palette should look:
Photobucket
Go to edit, copy merged, over to Animation Shop.
Edit, paste after current frame.
3 frames in animation shop.
2 with the eye open, and 1 with the lid closed.

Edit, select all, animation, frame properties
change the speed to 18.
Click to view, and if your happy, save it as a .gif
If you would like to redo the warp,go to edit, undo paste.
Back to PSP, Edit, UNDO WARP and keep undoing the warp till it takes you back to the eye opened. Keep warping till you're happy with the wink.
The warp brush takes a while to get the hang of, but it's a great lil tool that will make anything move.
Happy PSPing!!

Glittering a Glow

Photobucket

I'm using Rainbow Coffi roses in this project.
Open tubes in PSP.
Open a new canvas 500 x500.
Copy and paste tube onto canvas.
If you want a glow around the complete tube and text, then add your text now.
Convert text tube to raster. Merge visible the text and tube layer.
Rename the layer tube.
If you just want the glow around the tube, continue on to the steps below.

On your tube layer, go to selections,select all, float, defloat.
Ants are marching.
Layers, add a new raster layer.
Right click mouse on layer palette and arrange that layer down under the tube layer.
Ants are still marching and your on the new layer you just added.

Go to effects,plugins-- eyecandy 3--glow.
These are the settings I used, but play around till you get a glow surrounding you like.
Photobucket
You'll see the glow is outside the tube and there is no tube being glowed.
When you have the effect you want, click the check mark.
Selections, select none.
Add your text now if you didn't earlier.
Remember, adding it now, there will be no glow around the text only the tube.

Tag below I added glow to text and tube.
The tag at top of page,I added glow to tube only.
Photobucket

On your glow layer, duplicate that layer 2x's.
Gl 1--gl 2--gl 3.

Photobucket

Highlight gl 1 layer. Adjust, add noise @ 25
Highlight gl 2 layer. Adjust, add noise, click on the uniform dot twice.
Highlight gl 3 layer. Adjust, add noise, click on the uniform dot
3x's.
X out gl 2 & gl 3 layers.

Making a Blinkie

Photobucket

There are some great blinkie makers and I tip my hat to you!
Making blinkies is a true art.
I'm more a collector of blinkies than I am maker.
My favorite blinkies to collect are those made by Lori and Sharon.
The talent those 2 ladies have is outstanding.
KUDOS ladies!!

Here's my try and writing a tut to make a blinkie.
Blinkies are layers.
Each layer with a different color in a spot.
Once put together the colors blink.
Here's what my finished blinkie looks like in animation shop.
Notice the layers, and the spot where the different color is in the small heart.

Photobucket
There are many different sizes of blinkies.
The big ones are easier to work on when starting.
I have used a template made by LoriM.
Lori shares her creations.
Please make sure you follow her TOU.


Lori's Doodles


Scroll down to her "Blinkie Templates button" it will take you to her blinkie temps to download. She has fantastic templates!
Thank you Lori for sharing your talent :o)
Ok let's get started.
Open your template and tube in PSP.
Open a new white canvas 400x400.We'll crop later.
Copy and paste your blinkie template onto your canvas.
Rename that layer TEMP.
Using your magic wand with these settings:
Mode= addshift,matchmode=RGB value,Tolerance=1,checkmark beside contguous,0 feather,checkmark beside anti-atlas, inside.
Click inside the main background box. Ants are marching.
Flood fill with a color of choice.
Select none.
Magic wand, click inside all the lil hearts (the blinks)flood fill those with a color either same or different than the one you used as a main background.
Those are going to be your base color on the blinkie.Mine is the dark rose.
Add your tube as a new layer.
Add your text as a vector layer and place where you want it.
When you're happy with the text, right click mouse on layer palette,convert to a raster.
X out the background and template layer.
Highlight top layer ( tube n text ) merge layers visible.
Rename tube.
These are the layers you have now.
Background (white)Template base and tube.
I made all my layers in PSP then copied them over to animation shop to put together.
Let's begin the blinks.
Highlight the template layer.
Using magic wand, click the first heart top left corner, and the bottom left corner.Ants are marching.
Layers, add a new layer, move under the template.
Flood fill those hearts with a color of choice.
Select none.
Highlight template layer,click inside the second heart on top row and bottom row.
Layers add a new layer, flood fill with a different color.
Select none.
Keep doing this till you have all the hearts filled adding a new layer each time you move to another heart.

Here's a look but I didn't merge my tube n text before taking this:
Photobucket
Once you have all the blinks filled in, it's time to put it together in Animation Shop.
Crop your canvas.
**If you want the blinkie transparent instead of on a white background, in PSP XOUT background layer before copying merged into AS**
X out all layers, except, background,temp and tube.
Highlight background layer, edit, copy merged, over to AS, paste as a new animation.
Back to PSP, UnX layer 1 fill,edit, copy merged, paste into AS after current frame.
PSP, X out layer 1, unX layer 2 fill, edit, copy merged, paste into AS after current frame.
Keep doing this till you reach the top layer with your final blink.
Photobucket

In Animation Shop you should have all your frames.
Click to view the blink. If you like it, save as a .gif.
Happy PSPing!

Graphic in Text

Photobucket

For this project I began with a transparent background.
I don't usually start with tran backs because I find when using more than 255 colors in an image, there seems to be a white outline on the glitter after it's saved.
So usually when I make a tag I begin with either white or black back to ensure there will be no faint line either white or black on the finished .gif.

I'm sorry I won't be supplying graphics for this project. I'm sure ya'll have a collection :o)

The font I used was IMPACT. You should have it in your comp already.
Open your graphic in psp.
Open a new transparent canvas. 550 x 550.
Pick your color from your graphic and put it in your foreground and background box on your color palette.

Apply your text as a vector. So you can move it and stretch it etc...
Be sure you make an adjustment in your "kerning". Kerning changes the width between letters in the text.
Set it at -25. The - brings the letters closer together.
Below is the settings I used.

Photobucket

If you're happy with your text.Right click mouse on layer palette and convert to a raster.
Rename that layer TEXT.
Go to selections~~ select all~~ selections float~~ selections defloat~~Ants are marching around the text.
Activate your graphic. Edit~~ copy.
Back to your project~~ paste as a new layer.
Your marching ants are now on the graphic.
Position the graphic where it will show through in the text as you like.
Photobucket
Go to selections~~ INVERT~~ hit the delete key on your keyboard.
Selections~~ select none.
Right click on your layer palette, rename that layer "gr txt".

Highlight text layer. Select~~ select all~~ float~~defloat~~ modify~~ expand by 6.
Flood fill that layer with a color from your tube.
This will be the background color to your graphic text.
Selections~~ select none.
X OUT "raster 1 layer"on your layer palette.
That's the transparent background you began with..
Highlight the "gr txt" layer on your layer palette.
Go to layers, merge visible. You have just merged the text and the textback together.
Rename that layer TEXT.
Un X raster 1.
With TEXT layer highlighted on your layer palette. Go to selections~~ select all~~ float~~ defloat~~ modify~~expand by 8.
Ants are marching.

On your layer palette, highlight the raster 1 layer.

Flood fill with another color from your graphic.
This is going to be the glitter glow around the text.
Selections~~ select none.
Rename layer glow 1.

Crop your project and resize all layers if needed.
Duplicate glow 1 layer 2x's for a total of 3.
Rename those layers, glow 2, glow 3.


Highlight glow 1 layer.
Adjust~~ add noise~~ monochrome and uniformed checked~~noise@ 65.
Highlight glow 2 layer~~ add noise~~ change noise to 70.

Photobucket

Then on the transparency tab:
Photobucket

Continue on saving click next etc...
You're done!!
Remember to change your settings in animation shop next time you work with a white back.
On the partial transparency tab, check off Yes,blend with this color and put white in the color box.

How to Fill Text

Photobucket
You will need:
A fat font~~paper or fill~~embellishments and I have used the plugin VM NATURAL Sparkles.
For this project I used pieces of a scrap kit from "Simply Sensational Scraps" called Candyland.
Thank you Monica for sharing your beautiful kit.
You can find the kit


HERE


For those that don't want to grab the free scrap kit, I have put together some supplies of balloons and butterflies that I have collected.I made the paper in the supply zip and have included the font and sparkle plugin.


Supply Zip


A quick reminder~~
When downloading fonts~~ never download them into your windows font folder.
Make a new folder on your desktop and put your collected fonts there.When you click the font to open, it will show in your psp program.

Download and extract your supplies.
Put VM Natural in your plugin folder.
Open your supplies in PSP.
Open your font and minimize it to your bottom toolbar.It will show in PSP.
Open a new white canvas 450x450.
Set your color palette foreground #9068C6 and background white.
Add main text ( Happy Birthday) on a vector, size 48, stroke 2.
When you have the main text placed to your liking, take your magic wand tool and click inside the text.Ants are marching inside the letters.

Photobucket
Click on your foreground color palette and click the tab PATTERNS.
Find your paper or pattern that you want to use as the fill in the text.
Photobucket
With the fill tool, fill the letters with the pattern.
Photobucket
Go to selections-- select none. The ants will stop marching.
Put a drop shadow on the text.
My settings are: V=2 , H=2,Opac=65, Blur=3.00, Color Black.
Shadow on a separate layer.
I like using a separate layer for my shadows in case I want to do some text effects later.I don't want the effects on the shadow, with it on it's own layer I don't have to be limited to do the effects at one time :o)

Ok now we're going to put a glitter glow around the outside of the text.
Highlight text layer.Selections, select all, float, selections, defloat, modify, expand by 6.
Ants are marching.
Highlight white background layer.Go to layers, add new raster layer.
Rename that layer glow 1.
Pick a color from your tube as a background color for the text.
Flood fill that section with the color.
Duplicate that layer 2 x's. Rename those layers, glow 2, glow 3.
Ants are still marching.
Highlight glow 1 layer. Adjust,add noise @ 40 uniform checked.
Highlight glow 2 layer. Adjust,add noise,click the uniform 2x's.
Highlight glow 3 layer. Adjust,add noise,click the uniform 3x's.
Xout glow 2 & glow 3 layer.

Highlight text layer..
Now is the time to add your embellishments.
Resize them to fit and copy and paste them onto your project.
When you have all the embellishments on your project, X out all other layers, but your embellishments~~merge visible.
This is what your layers should be:
Photobucket
If you'd like to add some effects to your embellishments, do that now.
I used the freehand tool to pick out areas I wanted to add sparkles.
The balloons and butterfly.
Keep the ants marching around those areas.
On your layer palette, right click mouse,promote those sections to a layer. Rename that layer sparks. Duplicate it 2x's.
Sparks layer 1-- Effects, plugins--VM NATURAL-Sparkles.
Size 11 Random seed 91. Click ok.
Sparks 2 layer, change the # on random seed.
Sparks 3 layer, change the # on random seed.
X out sparks 2 & 3 layers.

Add your mark and any copyright info if required.
If you'd like to add more text, as I did,"Hugs,Lovey"..do that now too.

Time to put it together in Animation Shop.

Highlight white background layer on your layer palette.
Edit, copy merged.
Animation Shop, Edit, paste as a new animation.
Back to PSP.
Un X all #2 layers, X out layers #1.
Edit, copy merged.
Animation Shop, Edit, paste after current frame.
Back to PSP.
Un X all #3 layers, X out layers #2.
Edit, copy merged.
Back to animation shop, edit paste after current frame.
You now have 3 frames in animation shop.
