Aloha Beach

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 Keith Garvey, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Mermaid Dream by Inzpired Creationz
available at Pimp My Tags With Scraps  

Font of choice, I am using Sneaker Hunting

Plugins: No outside plugins used

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!

Banner Tag

Open a new canvas 600 x 250 pixels with a white background

Add the following elements, check my tag for exact placement
place sand 1 across the bottom of the canvas
Palm tree 1 on the left side
Posts on the right, resize 45%
Parrot, resize 45% place on posts
wave, resize 75%
Place your tube in the center
flowers resize 30%
Starfish 1 resize 20%

place paper 12 just above your white background

Make your white background layer active
selections, select all, modify, set selection borders, 4
Add a new raster layer at the top and flood fill with a color from your kit or tube

Open a new canvas 200 x 200 pixels with a white background. You might want to do yours 
a different size depending on what the forum you will be using it in allows

We will just be taking layers from the banner tag, and pasting them into the avatar:

Copy and paste the background paper as a new layer
Copy the wave from the tag, add as a new layer in the avatar canvas

Make a frame for the avatar the same as you did for the banner
