High Maintenance





In this tutorial I used the art of Keith Garvey.
You need a license to use Keith's art.
I purchased my license for this tube from My PSP Tubes
but they are now available at Keith's store here.

Again I have used the awesome kit "Posh" by
SkyScraps and made a totally different looking tag
from my first tutorial!
You can get the kit here.

You will also need a  mask, I used Weescotslass' mask 84, here.

Font of choice, I used Ammonite, here.




My usual reminder to you to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will be a little blurry; for more info, check out my Tips and Tricks page.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 85, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 600 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-pp5 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E89 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, move up and to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E58 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45% and move over to the left.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   I resized my tube 85%.

Go back to E58 and select the interior of each part with your magic wand then expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below it and fill with a dark colour from your tube, I used #3c1b10, deselect.

Now select just the top part of E58 and again expand the selection by 5.  Open your tube again or the close up if you have one, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer, resize and place in position, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube, deslect.  I used the largest close up resized 60%. 

Repeat the above steps with each part of E58.  In the centre section I undid the mirror and resized the tube 80% and in the bottom section, again I mirrored the tube and resized it 50%. 

When you have all your close up tubes in place, lower the opacity of each to around 65 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E73 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and drag down so its just above E89 and duplicate, place both flowers into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E60 and paste as a new layer. Drag up so its just below your main tube, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E90 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E83 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E71 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55% and rotate 15 degrees to the right, drag down below E83 (the glass), place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E78 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E50 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 40%, place in position, erase the part of the hanger that shows and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E2 and paste as a new layer.  Drag up above the glass and place in position, erase some so the beads are wrapped around the glass stem.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E9 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E91 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E44 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 15% and duplicate twice, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open SkyScraps-Posh-E92 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag right down until its just above the mask and place in position so the bundles show on the bottom, left hand side.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are done, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
