AMERICAN GIRL


This tutorial was written by me on 22nd June 2010. It assumes you have working knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop and it's tools, was written in Version 9, feel free to merge layers as when needed, unless otherwise stated
You will need:
Template3 ( from the stars collection of templates ) by Tamie which you can download here
Tube of choice, I am using the work of Jose Cano, you will need a licence to use his work
My supplies here
Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow
Mask 084 by Weescotlass
Font I used was Bodie MF

Open the template and duplicate and close the original
resize all layers 90% > imag canvas size 700 x 700 ( resize and crop later )
delete the copyright layer, text, glittertext, text3, strip and text2 layers
highlight circle > float > defloat > open paper1 and paste as a new layer > invert and delete and delete the original layer
highlight glittercircle > and colorize with: 172 / 159
colorize the glitterstars using the same colours as before
highlight star2 > float > defloat > open paper2 and paste as a new layer > invert and hit delete > delete the original layer
highlight glittercircle and add a small black glow using eye candy 5 impact, repeat with glitterstar, glitterstar2 and stars 2
highlight stars > float > defloat > delete the original > add new layer and flood fill with a colour from your tube
highlight the large circle > float > defloat > open tube and paste as a new layer > invert and hit delete
duplicate the tube on the top one > blur gaussian blur-3 > change blend mode to overlay and merge down with the tube below
change the blend mode to luminance legacy > lower opacity to around 50
highlight background and open paper2 and paste as a new layer > apply mask > merge group
open wordart and paste as a new layer and position ( see mine ) add the fradient glow same settings as before
open july and paste as a new layer and position over the star > add the gradient
open swirl and paste as a new layer and position top left above the mask > duplicate > image mirror > image flip and merge down > drop shadow of choice
open main tube and paste as a new layer and position > drop shadow
open bow and paste as a new layer and position ( see mine ) drag the wordart and the star to the top
crop around your tag > add the copyrights and your mark and resize all layers 85% > merge visible
copy and paste into animation shop and duplicate twice so you have 3 frames
open the bling and copy and paste it onto the glitter star > view animation and save
