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 Tony Tzanoukakis which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching Hula Girl kit by Irish Princess Designs which you can purchase along with the tube at Tony's store also.
Font of choice, I am using Waking Up
Plugins: No outside plugins
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 850 x 850 with a white background.
Open palm tree, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 85%, arrange on the left side.
Duplicate, mirror, resize by 70%, and arrange near the larger one on the left.
Duplicate the large one again, and mirror it.
Sand, arrange along the bottom of the tag, drag the layer below the palm tree layers
Drinks, resize 50% arrange near base of the trees
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer. I resized mine by 30%, and then
Surfboard, resize 85% arrange on the right, behind your tube
Sun, resize 55%, arrange behind trees
Rainbow, arrange so it looks like it's coming from the sun and then over top of the trees on the right side
Pineapple, resize 30%, arrange near the surfboard.
Coconut, resize 30% arrange in front of the surfboard and pineapple
Torch, resize 60%
Flowers, resize 20%, arrange over the coconuts, duplicate, mirror, arrange behind pineapple
Flower cluster, resize 20% arrange on left side of the tag
Wordart, resize 30%, arrange over trees on the left.
Open paper 6, copy and paste as a new layer, just above the white background layer.
Open your mask in psp, go to layers, new mask layer, from image, find the mask in the dropdown box, click ok. In the layers palette, delete your mask, then merge group.
If you save your masks in a folder outside of PSP and do them this way, they won't bog down your program. That's why I do them like this.
