___________________________________

REMEMBER TO SAVE OFTEN!

1. Open up new image – 750 x 750 – transparent background.

2. Create new layer - fill with foreground White #ffffff

3. Open up tube (used 'white' layer) - copy and paste onto your canvas - resize to 45% - sharpen. 
Rename layer as 'Irma'. Position tube a bit lower than the canvas.

4. From kit - select 'Frame 11' - copy and paste and resize by 80%. Position behind tube as seen in tag.

5. Open Paper 7 (or any other reddish-like paper) - copy and paste as new layer behind frame. 

6. Highlight frame layer. With your magic wand, select within the frame (hold down your shift key to select portions
not within the main frame). Go to 'Selections' - Modify - Expand - 3. Press OK. Selections - Invert - Delete. Then Select None.




7. Go to Elements Folder - Choose Element 6 - Copy and paste above paper layer. Resize by 50%. Sharpen. Change blend mode to screen.
Position as seen in tag.

8. Pick Element 15 - Copy and paste above red paper layer. Resize by 80%. Position as seen on tag.

9. For the rest, you get to play around with the elements - you can either choose the exact ones I've used on the tag
or use others. There's so many to pick from! Just remember to try to resize appropriately so it doesn't overshadow your tube.

10. Once satisfied with your placements. Apply drop shadow. To all those behind the tube, I went with: 6,3,80,8
For all tubes to the side/front of tube go with: 1,5,80,8
(note! No shadows applied to the white lace flower and tree as they're too 'flat' to look good with shadows)
Merge your shadowed layers together.

11. Duplicate your tube. On copy change blend mode to 'Soft Light'. Merge down and use same drop shadow: 1, 5, 80, 8.

12. From kit, choose WA 3. Position above tube (see tag). Resize by 40%. Sharpen. 

13. Choose another reddish paper of choice. In this case Paper 20. Resize to 750 x 750. Paste above white layer. Sharpen.

14. Apply mask of choice or Mask #279 from Rene Kunert. Duplicate mask layer. Merge down.

15. Open element 106 - the music sheet - copy and paste above mask layer. With your eraser tool, erase edges (this is actually 
optional, but do it anyway *lol*). Change Blend Mode to 'Soft Light'. Do not merge! You can duplicate this layer 
and move to either side of frame, so it 'fills' the mask (or rather you get to see the music notes).

16. Apply your copyright information. 

17. Write your name using the text 'Old Finlander' or one of your choice. 

18. Save and you're all set! However, if you want to animate, keep on going *points down*

---------------

ANIMATION TIME!

1. In Animation Shop, Open Animation Package #8 - Animation #32 - the music notes. You should have 24 layers.

2. On the menu bar, go to Edit - Select All - and make sure you're in the first frame!

3. Back to PSP. Close out all the layers ABOVE the tube + tube itself. Making sure you are on a layer that's not closed out,
copy merged and paste as new image in Animation Shop. 

4. Press Ctrl + L and duplicate your layers until you have 24 of them (see bottom left side of your workspace to keep
count). Once done, edit - select all - make sure you're in the first frame!

5. Go to the music notes and drag from the first frame to the first frame of the tag itself. Align/position somewhere 
in the middle - see tag example. Keep all frames still selected.

6. Go back to PSP - Uncheck all layers layers ABOVE tube + tube itself and now close out all layers below them. Copy
merged and paste as new image in AS. Repeat process for duplicating layers until you have 24 of them. Select all.

7. Making sure you're in the first frame, drag your top half of the tag unto the main tag (with your music notes added)
Make sure you position well so it doesn't look 'off'. 

8. Now view animation by clicking on View - View Animation. If the notes are moving too fast for you, go to Animation - Frame Properties
Play around with the speed (increase or decrease the numbers) and see what works best.

9. Save your tag when finished and that's it! Hope you had fun! :D
