Pracken's Paint Shop Pro Tutorials

Country Farm House Series:
Bed


housefront

I decided to make a country farm house and furnish it. Everything you see in the house was created by me.

This tutorial will show you how to make the bed (it's upstairs in the loft).

There are tutorials for all of the furnishings in this home, and you will find them all here.

Because there are so many items needed to furnish the house, I've tried to make the tutorials relatively easy so you'll be able to get through them all.


For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 7.04 but if you are familiar with PSP, you should be able to convert the tutorial without problems. You can download the latest PSP version demo here.

My selection files. Place these in your PSP selections folder (or any location of your choice).

My seamless fill tiles.

You may download all of my materials here.

My colors chart. Right click on this and save to your computer.



Step 1. Open a new image 350 x 250, white background.

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 1 (go to selections>load from disk - then navigate to the location you placed your selection files).

Flood fill with "01bedfill" (scale 65, angle 90). Float the selection (hit the "Ctrl+F" on your keyboard).

Set your background color to color #1. Apply a cutout using the settings in the screenshot (right click on the shadow color then locate color #1 in your recent colors list).

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 2. Flood fill with "02bedfill" (scale 65% angle 0). Set your background color to color #2. Float. Apply cutout using the same settings as before, except change the shadow color to color #2.

Step 3. Add a new layer. Choose your selection tool, rectangle and draw a shape similar to mine. Flood fill it with color #3.

Step 4. Go to effects>geometric effects>wave, and use the settings in the screenshot.

Step 6. Now to get rid of those overlapping ruffles at the top. Make your ruffle layer active. Choose your selection tool, rectangle. Draw around the part you want to delete. Then hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Step 7. Add a new layer. Load selection 3. Flood fill with "01bedfill" (scale 65, angle 90). Float. Apply cutout using color #1 as the shadow color.

Delete your color layer, hide the background, and merge visible layers. All done!
