I must say that without the encouragement and support of Blank Gift Tags, I would never have attempted this, much less put it in tut format so credit for the tut must be placed there.  To find out more about membership click here..

This tutorial assumes that you have knowledge of psp, working with layers, tubes, and understand which tools are which.  Before we begin, you will need to download the supplies by clicking here: Supplies

17. This layer should be beneath the shoe front layer. So your layer palette should look like this:

18. Press ctrl+d to deselect.
19. Add a new layer and name this layer sole.
20. Choose selections-load from disk-shoesole.
21. Flood fill with the lady bug pattern.

27. Choose inner bevel and apply the shoe top preset. Press ctrl+d to deselect.
At this point you can merge all visible layers and have a nice shoe. However, you can also “fill” the shoe here as well. To fill the shoe do this.
1. Choose the tube you are going to use to fill the shoe.
2. Add a new layer under shoev and above shoetop.
3. Place your tube on the layer.
4. Now, I need to move my shoe down some so here is what I am going to do. On my layer palette, I have a tab called layer groups. It looks like this:

5. Click on that tab, and then click on each layer on the right hand side of your layer palette to make each layer part of group 1.

6. Now you should be able to take your mover tool, and move your shoe to the bottom of your canvas to make room for the tube. 7. Now right click on each 1, so that the 1 turns to none.

8. Now if your tube hangs over the shoe front, take your lasso tool and select the area that needs to be removed.

9. Make sure you are on your tube layer and then hit delete. Press ctrl+d to deselect.
10. Merge all visible layers.
That's it! You can save as a tube, add text, do whatever you like with it now!
