Beach Life





For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Alicia Mujica (Julia tube) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Island Adventures, a PTU kit by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me

Font of choice, I am using Peanut Butter Cookies

Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.



Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.


Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 950 x 950 pixels with a white background

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 50%

Add the following elements:
element 77 arrange below tube, duplicate & mirror, resize duplicate 110%
arrange a little bit higher than the original and drag below it. You might want to take your eraser tool with the hardness set around 10 and erase some of the sand so it blends together better, duplicate this layer and flip
drag it so it shows below the original layer

element 60 resize  90% arrange so it is going between the two sand layers
element 54 arrange on right side in front of fence
element 86 resize  40% arrange in front of tree on right
element 51 resize  55% arrange between & behind trees on the right
element 96 resize  45% arrange on left side
element 35 resize  30% arrange by your tube
element 72 arrange behind all the other layers on the left, duplicate & mirror
element 85 arrange in front of 72, duplicate & mirror
element 62 resize  40% arrange between the trees and the fence layer on the left
element 98 resize  20% arrange by tube on right side
element 115 resize  25% arrange on left
element 116 resize  35% arrange behind element 115
element 24 resize  35% arrange on bottom right
element 70 resize  20% arrange by tube in front of her drink
element 65 resize  20% arrange on bottom left
element 27 resize 20% arrange on bottom, duplicate & resize 65%, mirror, arrange on the right side of the original
