Do You Believe In Magic?

This tutorial was written by me on September 19th, 2012 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP9, but should work in other versions.

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


Tube of choice. I am using the work of Ismael Rac. This tube is yet to be released. Keep an eye out for this tube in the near future only available at his store.

2 fonts of choice. I am using Wet Dream & Daemonesque.

Filters used:

Filter Factory G
Color Rave Atmospherizer 1.1
Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Constellation
DSB Flux Linear Transmission


Open a blank transparent image, 600 x 250.

Create a gradient consisting of 3 colors from your tube. I chose #ab82bc, #ffffff, and #000000, style linear, angle 45, repeats 1. Floodfill your canvas with this gradient. Gaussian blur, 20.

Filter Factory G Glass Pyramids using the default settings.

Color Rave Atmospherizer 1.1, 155, 255, 155, 55, 229, 94, 216, 0.

Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Constellation, 3, 50, 1, 1, 75, 90.

DSB Flux Linear Transmission, 8, 11, 50, vertical.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer. Place to the right side of your canvas. Duplicate, mirror, and merge these tube layers together. Gaussian blur, 3. Set the blend mode to screen, opacity 40. On the original tube layer, set the blend mode to overlay, opacity 40.

Select your rectangle tool. Set the foreground color to null, background to white. Draw out a thin rectangle across the entire canvas. Place towards the bottom. Set the opacity of this layer to 24. See my tag for reference.

Using the Daemonesque font or font of your choice, write out the word "MAGIC". Convert to raster layer and place to the left side. Duplicate and move this layer to the right side.

Using the Wet Dream font or font of your choice, write out the text "Do you believe in". Convert to raster layer and place to the upper left corner.

Open your tube again and resize slightly (I resized mine 60%). Copy and paste as a new layer and place in the center. Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur 3. Hue and saturation, colorize, 0,0. Set the blend mode to hard light.

Add a new raster layer and floodfill with white. Select all, modify, contract by 5 and press delete. Deselect.

Duplicate your background layer and bring it to the top and flip. Select all, modify, contract by 3 and press delete. Deselect.

Add noise, gaussian, 100, monochrome checked. Merge this layer with the white frame layer.

Add your name, copyright, and license info.

Apply a drop shadow of choice. Merge visible and save as a PNG.
