I Write the Sins

This tutorial was written on August 14, 2013. Any similarity to any other tut is purely coincidental. I use PSP X5, but you should be able to do this in any version.

You Will Need:
Tube of choice. I used Pain2 by Michele Ann. You must have a license to use her work. You can find it here.
FTU kit The Punishment Sampler from Gothic Inspirations .
Mask: 5 from Alexis at Creative Misfits.
Terms to Know:
C&P-Copy and paste
SAFDI-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat>Invert
SAFD-Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat
DS-Drop Shadow (The settings I used for all my DS layers were: 3, -6, 60, 5, black)
Crop to Selection- Ctrl+a on the layer below the one you just pasted a paper (or object) on. Back to the paper (or object) and Shift+r.
Center in Canvas- Objects>Align>Center in Canvas
Apply Mask- Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image and choose your mask.
Add Noise- Image>Add/Remove Noise>Add Noise (My default settings are Gaussian, 50%, Monochrome)

All instructions regarding tubes assume you are using the same tube I did. If you use a different one, adjust size/placement accordingly.

©  Open new image 900x900. Open Tag back, C&P, resize 170%, Center in Canvas. Open and apply mask, resize 110%, Center in Canvas, Merge Group.
©  Open Pentagram, C&P, Image*Free Rotate right 10 degrees (“All Layers” is UNCHECKED), resize 160%.
©  Open Frame 3, C&P, resize 75%, Image*Free Rotate right 10 degrees, duplicate. With your Magic Wand tool, select the inside of the duplicate frame, expand 5, invert selection. Open P3, C&P, delete, Select None, change Layer Properties to soft light, drag below duplicate frame.
©  Activate duplicate frame layer. Open tube, C&P, Flip Horizontal, resize 45%, Place where you like it, DS, SAFD. Activate top frame layer and erase everything covering his face. Select None.
©  Activate tube layer. Open Ribbon 3, slide to the right side of the frame, DS, SAFD. Activate top frame layer and erase any bits you want to be over the frame. Select None.
©  Select your Text Tool and write your name. I used MecaGothix 48 pt, 1 pt stroke. Place where you like it, Convert to Raster, SAFD, Expand 5, Layers*New Layer, Flood Fill with color of choice (I used a gold color from the frame) and drag below text. Activate text, DS with these settings: 1, 1, 50, 5, black. Merge Down.

©  Add DS to any layers you want. Add your CR info and you’re done! Thanks for using my tut J!
