PTU Rock It

This tutorial was created by Amanda Carter on October 20, 2010.
Any other tutorial that looks like this is just coincidence, all ideas are my own.
Thanks for trying my tutorial, so let’s get started.

Paint Pro Shop X2 (any version would do)
4 tubes of choice (I used Popeye Wong’s you can find his tubes at
Scrap kit Rock It by Rebellious Scraps, you can buy her kits at
Mask by WSL which can be found at weescotslass creations: Masks
No outside filters were used in this tutorial.
First open a 500 x 500 transparent new image, flood fill white; this will be your background.
Go to the scrap kit and open frame 1 and paste as a new layer.
Use your magic wand and select each frame, go to selections, modify and expand by 4.
 Open paper 3, copy and paste then hit invert, then delete, put the paper under the frames.
Highlight your frame layer and once again using the wand put the tubes of choice in each of the frames, making sure the tube you are using is inside the frame, then move each layer under the frame layer, just like the paper layer your gonna have to invert and delete.
Then you’re going to merge down all tubes and the frames making all of them one, merge the paper and the frame together also.
Then highlight your background layer and pick a paper from your scrap kit, and paste as a new layer (I used paper 1)
Apply your mask, then merge group.
Add some of the elements from your scrap kit; you can follow mine as an example.
I used disc 1, resize by 45%, and then place in the middle.
Then I used heart 1 and placed them on the other 2 frames, try to resize the heart by 25%, duplicate and then image mirror.
Add your name on a new layer; using the font of choice (I used Forte, size 22, using colors #4f9cba, and #ff058c).
Add your watermark copyrights and then merge visible and then you’re done, thanks again for looking at me tutorial.
