Tube is by Alex Prihodko at Pics For Design HERE

Sonia's kit called "Wild West" is available at PFD at the above link
or at her shop Graphics Of Fantasy HERE

I use PSP Version 8 and any version will work

You will need my Misting Mask - grab it HERE

This is a simple tutorial - I am assuming you have working knowledge of PSP


Open Paper #2>Duplicate>Close Original

Apply the Misting Mask and Merge Group

Add a Raster Layer and move below Merged Group in your Layer Palette

Open Paper #5>Copy

On the tag with your new Raster Layer active, go up to Selections>Select All>Paste Into Selection>Selections>Select None

Duplicate the Merged Group layer 2 times so you will have a total of 3 of the Merged Group - this is so you can see it better against the brighter background


Open the Hill Element 82>Copy and Paste onto your tag in the center

Open Dirt Element 23>Copy and Paste behind the Hill

Open Grass Element 37>Copy and Paste behind the Dirt

Open Horses Element 21>Resize smaller>Copy and Paste behind the Grass

Open Cloud Element 51>Copy and Paste as shown on my tag behind the Horses

Go to Layers>Properties>Normal at 35 to soften the color of the Clouds

Open remaining Elements and resize if necessary and place as shown on my tag

Open and resize your tube and place in the front of the tag as shown

Here are the remaining Elements I used:

Cactus #26
Grass #40 at the fence posts
Log #43
Tree #45
House #50
Fence #79
Hat #17
Rope #1
Coyote #24

Add a new Raster Layer at the very top layer in your Layer Palette

Use your Color Dropper and choose a brown color from the Horses

Flood fill the entire tag with this brown color

Go up to Selections>Select All>Modify>Contract by 4>Hit Delete>Selections>Invert>Add Drop Shadow>Selections>Select None
You now have a border around your tag

Add your Copyright information and name and save in JPG format

Please be aware that templates, masks, kits, etc. that I use will always have a link to them - but it is beyond my control if these products/freebies are no longer available by the site/blog owner.
