Open Tagtemplate 129 and Shift D to copy it and close the original, now click on the background layer and Image – Canvas size 700 x 700 and floodfill white. Delete the Watermark layer.

Open your supplies and minimise & put your Mask in your Mask folder

Click on the Circle 1 and Selections – Select all – Layers – add a new raster layer and in your material palette click on the pattern tab and look for the glitter you would like to use and fill the circle with the Glitter Pattern, Selections – None & Delete the original layer do the same with Circle 2.

Right click on the top circle layer and – Merge down so your 2 circles are on one layer.

In your layer palette make the rectangle layer active and add your tube as a new layer resizing if necessary then click on your top layer and add your second tube again resizing if necessary.

Copy and paste the heartline from the kit and place it to the left of your Tag and I resized by 80% then – duplicate and mirror image.

Make the background layer active and floodfill with the same colour you used for the wordart and Layers – Load/Save Mask – Load Mask from Disk and look for Chelles Mask 181 and apply then in your layer palette right click on the Group layer and Merge Group

Add a dropshadow to all layers except the mask layer

Image – Resize to 550 x 550 smart size.

Add the artists copyright and then add your Name if using the same tube I used I placed my name as if the tube was resting on top of it.

If you are happy with your Tag as it is you can now save it as a Jpeg and your done, if you wish to animate it then carry on below.


Click on the circles layer in your layer palette and Effects – Xenofex 2 – Constellation with these settings :
Keep Original Image – checked and apply then copy merged and take it to animation shop – Edit and paste as a new animation – * back in PSP and click undo then Effects – Xenofex 2 – Constellation and with the same settings hit the random button once and apply and copy merged and in AS – Edit and paste after current frame do the same again from *
