Pretty In Pearls - PTU tut

*What you will need*

PaintShopPro (any version should work)
Font I used : MeaCulpa
(this is a pay font)
Filter needed : DSB Flux
(We'll be using Mosaic Ripple, Radial Warp, & Radial Noise)

**This tutorial assumes that you have working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.**

**This tutorial was written by Aimee Pryor on October 8, 2011.  
Any similarity between this tutorial and another is nothing but 
coincidence.  You may link back to my tutorials, but do
not copy them and put them on your own group or site of any kind.  
If you'd like to share your creation,
you may email them to me at and I will share
them here :o) Thanks!**

First things first!!
Download and install the filter & font.
Open whatever tube you're going to use and minimize
it until we're ready.  Also download my frame, duplicate it, and close
the original.

I think we're ready!
Change the canvas size of the frame to 800 x 800 pixels
so we have PLENTY of room to work with.
Using your selection tool - Set to freehand,
and with the following settings -

Click each corner of the frame and it should select
the entire inside.

Choose a paper from the kit - Resize 75% Copy
and paste as new layer - Selections - Invert - Delete.
Now let's copy the tube (if using the same tube I did,
resize 140%) Paste as new layer - (Still keeping
selected) - Duplicate the tube layer & hide the layer for now.
Go back to original tube layer and hit delete.
Select none.
Drop shadow this tube layer - 2, -2, 65, 10 - black
Also drop shadow the frame layer.

Now let's go back to the copied tube - Move this layer
above the frame layer.  Grab your eraser tool and erase
the parts of the tube that go beyond the frame.
See below for an example:

Merge visible.
Copy the image and then paste as new layer.
Delete the original.  This puts our image in the center.

Now comes the fun part!!!
Duplicate the image - Resize top layer by 90%.
Make the bottom copy active
Effects - Filters/Plugins - DSB Flux - Mosaic Ripple
With these settings :

Now Effects - DSB Flux - Radial Warp
with these settings :

Finally - Effects - DSB Flux - Radial Noise
With these settings :

Is that not a neat effect?!
Lower the opacity of the filtered layer to 80%.
Merge visible.  Crop and resize to your liking.

Add name and all copyright info and you're done!!
Save as .png for a transparent background or
.jpg for a white background.

I hope you enjoyed this tut and it wasn't too confusing to you!!

Thanks :o)

As always, I made another tag for Crys showing off more bits
of the kit.  Also made two other cluster frames, which you 
can download.  Remember... If you download any of my
cluster frames, please be sure to leave a little thank you. :o)
