Lavender Moments


This tutorial was written by me on January 1st, 2016 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.


Tube of choice. I am using the art of Barbara Jensen. You can purchase her tubes here.

PTU kit from MellieBeans called Lavender Moments. You can purchase it here.

Mask LNLRANDOM WINTER MASK from Leather & Lace Ads. You can find it here.

Font of choice. I am using Always Black.


Open fr03. Resize by 75%, all layers unchecked. Now resize all layers by 75%.

Use your magic wand and click inside the frame. Selections, modify, expand by 5. Open pp10. Paste as a new layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect & move below your frame layer.

Open your mask & pp07. Paste your paper as a new layer onto your frame canvas, move to the bottom layer. Apply your mask, merge group.

Now to add our elements:

e03 – resize by 50%. Paste above your frame layer & place to the upper right of the frame.
e04 – resize by 15%. Place over the bow of the ribbon.
e17 – resize by 55%. Place to the bottom.
e20 – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom.
e19 – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom. Rotate a bit to the left so that it is laying down flat, then place to the left side. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the right side.
e13 – resize by 62%. Place towards the top of the tulle.
e11 – resize by 40%, flip horizontal. Place to the bottom left.
e02 – resize by 20%. Place to the bottom, a little to the right. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place a little to the left of the center.
e05 – resize by 24%. Place to the bottom, between the duplicate flowers. Arrange your duplicate flowers if needed.
e01 – resize by 62%, rotate right. Place to the bottom, centered over the paper flower.

Duplicate the very first flower we added (the one over the ribbon). Move this layer to the top, centered over the paper flower.

e30 – resize by 15%. Place to the bottom right so it looks as though it’s sitting on the first duplicate flower.

On your paper layer behind the frame, select all, float, defloat. Open your tube & paste as a new layer. Place to the right side of the frame opening. Selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to screen, 80. On the original tube layer, lower the opacity to 50.

Paste your tube again, but this time above the very first flower layer, flip horizontal. Resize as necessary. Place to your liking. Use your rectangular selection tool and erase any part of the tube that hangs below the bottom elements.

Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur using the previous settings. Set the blend mode to soft light.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
