Irish Myths

1. I am using the beautiful kit by Puddicat Creations called " Irish Myths" .
2. I am using the gorgeous art of Tom Hoover, it is no longer available, but you can use tube of choice.

Let's Get Started

1. Open a new file in PSP sized 600 x 600.  Change colors in Materials palette to dark green.  Flood fill new file .  In tools palette choose  "view"> ruler.  Using your elipse tool Pull out an oval  about 450 wide and 500 high.  Effects> texture effects> blinds.  Highlight oval in layers palette and  reduce opacity to 35.  Open a new file in PSP now known as "tag" > size 600 x 600 .  Copy and paste blinds oval onto new file as new layer> layers> merge visible.

2. Open Paper # 2 from kit. Open frame # 1 and set aside.   Using selection tool found in magic wand in tools palette, change shape to elipse, mode>replace>feather=1>tick anti alias box.  Pull out an oval slightly less in size than the frame you set aside above. 

3. Open template by sasi ( either one dated 2-17)  and close off all layers except sheer ribbon banner.  Highlight ribbon in layers palette and copy and paste as new image. Copy adn paste onto tag  from step one " as new selection" and postion 1/2 block from each side and 4 blocks from bottom of tag.  Selections> none.

( you may have to resize either paper or frame to fit).  Set this aside for now.
