Song of the Sea

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  Arthur Crowe which you need a license to use.  This particular tube is a forum exclusive made for the ACDiva forum.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Melody of the Sea by Designs by Sarah, available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps.

Font of choice, I am using Carpenter Script

Mask: Gemsmask172 from Gems Taggin Scraps

Plugins: No outside plugins used

Some things that are done over and over I am going to abbreviate as follows:
O/C/P = Open copy and paste an element or paper
C/S/I = Click inside with magic wand, selections, invert

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.
