Dollhouse Series
Living Room: Plant Stand and Plant


Welcome to my dollhouse series tutorials! This is the living room section of tutorials.

This tutorial is for the plant stand and plant (there beside the sofa). All of the other items in the living room can be found on the main dollhouse tutorial page, which you will find here. If you haven't already done so, please go there and orient yourself to the dollhouse tutorials, and for important information you'll need to complete the series.

Once you complete the living room, and all the other rooms, you'll assemble them all into the completed dollhouse.

Please read my Terms of Use before completing these tutorials.

This tutorial was written for Paint Shop Pro versions 9 and 7.04

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 9, and have made comments as appropriate for PSP 7 users. I didn't test it in PSP8, but you shoud be able to complete the tutorial in that version as well. You may download the latest PSP version demo here.

My canvas with alpha channels. This should work fine for PSP9 and PSP 7 users.

My seamless fills.

You may download all of my materials here.

My image is just a guide. If you'd like to use different colors/textures, etc., feel free to do so.

Step 1. Open up the canvas you downloaded.

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 1 (selections>load/save selection/load selection from alpha channel). Flood fill with the "dhplantfill" you downloaded.

Step 3. Add a new layer. Load selection 2. Flood fill with the "dhplantfill2" tile.

Step 4. Hide the background layer. Merge visible layers.

Step 5. Now you just need a plant for your stand. Feel free to use one of your own, or you can make mine. I'm using a tutorial in my western town series for scrub brush, and modifying it to be a green plant. To find the tutorial, go here.

[Note: You can change the colors in the scrub brush tut if you wish. I used the same colors and then just adjusted the saturation (adjust>hue and saturation>hue/saturation/lightness), so the green was more vibrant.

Once you've finished your plant, copy it and paste it as a new layer onto your plant stand. Since the plant is so bushy, I decided not to make a pot for it (we'll just pretend it's there lol).

Step 6. Delete your background layer and merge visible layers. Save as a PSP file.

What to do next

Now continue on through the living room tutorials, in order (go here to find the tutorials index, and scroll down to the living room section to find the others). Once you have all of the items in the living room section complete, then go here to assemble it.

Have fun!
