a new raster layer by going to layer's new raster layer. Choose a

weave color black gap color white and fill gaps checked. Use the
same gradient glow you used on raster 3 and then the same drop

small circle layer.
Ok for the flowers layers what I chose to do was open the Alpha
Beads and took my colors from those. So on the largeflowerset1 go
to selections select all float selections defloat and go to layers
new raster layer and flood fill it with a color or gradient of
choice. Then using the same eye candy gradient glow and drop
shadows. You can do the shadows twice if you like or not. I just
think doing it twice with the negative numbers defines it much
more than without. Now delete Your original layer.
Now repeat these same steps for the rest of your flowers. You
could even play around with some of the built in textures of psp
as they would look nice. I just chose to leave them plain this

selections lasso tool and drew around the candy letters and copied
and pasted as a new layer to spell out my candy girl layer.I added
the same gradient glow and drop shadows as my other parts of the
Now open up the candy jar and copy and paste as a new layer to
your tag. Image resize by 40 percent make sure that resize all
layers are unchecked and place this down by the last flower or
wherever you like it. It doesn't matter. Be different and don't do
any of my tuts to the T because then you aren't trying to use your
creativity and that's what makes each of us unique.
Next what I did was I used them same buttons again and spelled out
Reina and then I went into my layer palette and merged down until the last letter was merged and then added the same gradient glow and drop shadow to the text layer. You could always use a font to type it out but I wanted it to be different than the ordinary tags We seem to always be making.Now just add any of the extra elements You like and place em around the tag and save. You are now done. If Your in a group where you have to use a copyright please use
