A Winters Day

This tutorial was written by me and for those
who have a good working knowledge of psp.

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice, I used artwork by ©Suzanne Woolcott.
Scrap kit, I used (PTU) Holiday Ice by Designs by Sarah
Mask, I used Big Mask 18 by Vix
Font of choice, I used Happyjamas.
Plug-in, I used VanDerLee - Snowflakes
Animation Shop

Let's Begin! 

Open window 
Re-size by 75% with re-size all layers UNchecked
Now you have some room to work with

Paste paper 1
Apply noise at 20
Apply mask
Merge group

Using your magic wand tool click outside frame
Expand by 4
Paste paper 11
Apply noise at 20
Contract by 6

Using selection tool draw out a rectangle 
just bigger than the opening of window
Paste paper 8 
Paste paper 2
Change blend mode on paper 2 to luminance (L)

Paste tree 2 and re-size and place where you like

Paste tube

Paste bow 2 and place in center top area

Add name and copyright info
I added noise to my name 

Now once you have the tag as you like it, it's time to 
animate it
Click the layer right below the frame layer
for me that's the tube layer

Now add 4 new layers

Now apply snowflakes plug in to each layer 
only changing the random seed setting


So the first one is set at 500
Then 1000,2000,3000 for other layers
Select background paper and float
Delete on all 4 layers so snow in only frame size
Close the 1000,2000,3000 layers off and copy merge and paste into AS

Go back to PSP and close the 500 layer and open 1000
Copy merge and paste after current frame in AS

Continue these steps until all 4 layers are pasted in AS.

Shift A and change frame properties to 15
