Before we go into a Big Project like the Bear lets start
out with just using the Glitter to fill in our Name:
I've Provided you with a Couple of fonts for the Lesson..
You will be able to use your own choice of font later
in the lesson: For this one Please Open: All the fonts
provided into your Windows and minimze them to your Task Bar:

Step 1:   Open a New Transparent Image in PSP 800 Width and 300 Height:

Step 2:   With your Text Tool Set on Zallman Caps
( Make sure you have your Cap Locked on your Keyboard for this one:)
And Set your Text to:
floating:
Size 80:
Stroke 1.0:
Foreground Color: Black:

Step 3:   Type in your Text: For this lesson:
I would like your Text to be Two wards so you can
put a spacer between them: We are going to work with the Spacer:
The Space would be the Dash found above your P key
on your Keybard: See Example:



This is what it will look like: See Example:



This example is smaller then what I see in my work space:
I zoomed it down so that I could show you:
Your going to want to keep it Large to work
with so you can see to get inside the Text:

Step 4:   Promote Selection to a Layer:

Step 5:   Selections/ Select None

Step 6:   Open one of the Glitters you have created in animation:

Step 7:   Holding down the CTRL Key and clicking A on the Keyboard:
Select all Frames:

Step 9:   Go to PSP and Past Animation As Multiple Images: See Example:



Step 10:   Minimize them to the Bottom: see Example:



Step 11:   Open the Animated Bee in Animation

Step 12:   Select all Frames:

Step 13:   Go to File/ Export to PSP : See Example:




See the Difference in the Transfer:
When you copy and past you have the Choice of pasting
as Multiple Images( Which we will need for our Glitter Fill)
Or in this case: One Image with 3 Seperate layers:
Each Layer has one Frame on it: How you transfer your Images
depends on what you need to use them for:

Step 14:   Back to your PSP:
With your Magic Wand Click inside the Spacer in your Text:

Step 15:   Selections/ Modify/ Expand by 1

Step 16:   Click on Background and then Create a new Raster Layer/
Name it Bee Frame 1

Step 21:   We are going to get Creative with this:
Click on the Frame part of the Spacer:
So you have the Marching Ants running on the inside:
See Example:



Step 22:   Selections/Modify/ Expand by 2

Step 23:   See my Example of my Layer Pallet:



you should have your Layer pallet just like this so
you will understand the Next Few Steps:

Step 24:   In the Example you can see that I have Bee Frame 3 Active:
Once you have Bee Frame 3 Active/ Create a new Raster Layer
and Name it Spacer Glitter 1:

Step 25:   If you have your Glitter Open in your Work Space but Minimized
when you open your patterns up you will find it
in the Drop down.. I'm going to show you an Example
of my Drop down: You will see all the Glitters I have
open to use on my Projects:

If you don't remember which ones are frames 1, 2 and 3..
They are in number order.. So you can go from there..
My Colors were 67, 68 and 69:
Keep this in mind while your working:




Step 26:   I'm going to use Red for this Center Part:
So I'm clicking on Frame 1 of my Red:

Step 27:   Create a New Raster layer above Spacer Glitter 1 and
name it Spacer Glitter 2

Step 28:   Flood fill it with the Second Frame of your Glitter Color:

Step 29:   Create a new Raster Layer Above Spacer Glitter 2 and name it Spacer Glitter 3:

See Example of my Palette now:



Step 30:   The Next Thing I want to do is use a Glitter to
Color in my Letters: So pick your Letter Glitter and

I'm leaving it as is for the Bee:

Step 41:   Selections/ Modify / Expand by 1

Closed off my Background:

Your going to want to be careful about the Font you use:
Make sure your able to get inside all the loops
You want to pick one that's a little wider then
the one I used if your not very good at zooming
in and getting all the Small spots:

Step C24:   Right click and convert the vector to a raster then with your Magic Wand
and Shift Key held down click in the center of your Text inside each loop:
Rename your layer text See example:

Next Glitter Project:



Step D1:   Open Care Bear 2

Step D2:   There are Two layers to the Tube:
Find the Bear Layer and Copy it:

Step D3:   Past the Bear as a New Image

Step D4:   Close the Original Image

Step D5:   Now Start creating Glitter with each color from the Bear : See Example:



You will notice that in this Example it looks like I have
two of the same color: I have one from the Heart and
one from the nose and Feet Pads: They are different
but look very close to the same:

Step D6:   Activate the Magic Wand (settings: Mode: Add; Match Mode: RGB Value; Tolerance: 20 (you may need to adjust this setting); Use all layers: unchecked; Contiguous: checked; Feather: 0; Anti-alias: checked; Outside)

Step D7:   Holding down the Shift Key Select all the Same Color
area's like this: See Example:

Note: If you Magic wand is just not allowing you to select the colors that
you need then use your selection tool Lasso either point to point or
free style and then select the areas that you want to glitter.



Step D8:   Add a New Raster layer and name it:
In my Case I'm starting out with the body:
So I've named mine Bear Body 1:

Step D9:   Flood fill Bear Body 1 with the First Glitter that matches:

Step D10:   Create a New Raster Layer and Name it Bear Body 2:

Step D11:   Flood fill with Bear Body Glitter 2 you created:

Step D12:   Create a New Raster Layer and Name it Bear Body 3:

Step D13:   Flood fill with Bear Body Glitter 3:

Step D14:   You will continue Coloring in your Bear and Stars until
you have it all colored in like this:
See My Example of my Layer Palette:



Step D15:   Now it's time to animate the Bear:

Step D16:   Close all Layers but your Frame 1 layers:
( So your going to keep bear and all your Layers with 1 in them:

Step D17:   Copy Merged and Past as a new Animation in A/S

Step D18:   Close all Layer 1's and open all 2's

Step D19:   Copy Merged and Past after Frame 1 in A/S
