Back 2 Skool



In this tutorial I used the art of “Anjara” Andy Screen.
You need a license to use Andy’s art,
I purchased mine from My PSP Tubes.

The kit I used is called “Back 2 School” by
You can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Weescotslass’ mask 117, here.

Font is DK Crayon Crumble, here.



 
Remember to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating, if you are not familiar with this you will find more info on my Tips and Tricks page.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open pd12-pp-03 and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. Resize 85%.

Open pd12-paper and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, move over a little to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-chalk-board and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, move up and to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-frame-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and place in position.

Open pd12-pp-03 again and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, do not deselect.

Open your tube and mirror it (use the close up if you have one), paste as a new layer, resize as needed and position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube and lower the opacity of the tube to around 50.

Open your main tube (undo the mirror) and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-globe and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, drag down below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-ribbon-03 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-border-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-staple and paste as a new layer.  Place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-rubberband-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-ruler and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-pencil-01 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, 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.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  If you have any questions, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery.
