This tutorial assumes a basic familarity with PSP,
You will need Paint Shop Pro for it.
Also some idea of what you want to make. It's just the technique, not a tutorial in creating an image or background.
Also, no screenshots. Just quick and basic!
For the title above, I opened a new image, and used the shape selection to draw out a rectangle, then flood filled it with #7F704F
Go to Effects/Noise/Add check uniform, and noise level of 8.
For the outline stitches I used Alps Thin font, lower case x, stroke set at nothing, fill color #5B5039. I just typed out a line of x's and converted to raster, and cut and paste to fill the top, then paste a small section as a new layer for the sides, rotated 90 degrees, and copies that and pasted it until the side was done, turned off visibilty on the bottom layer, merge visible,layer duplicate, Image/flip , Image/mirror, layers/merge visible, at the same noise as above, and then image/3d Effects/drop shadow, color set to black, vertical 1, horizontal 1, opacity 100, blur 3.7
You can also use the letter I or a custom line for stitching.
Step 4 (Embossed part)
All done!! Wasn't that EASY!
