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 Roman Zaric (Mady) which you need a license to use.
This tube is not yet released into his store but will be within a day or two of this tut being posted
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching kit for this tube, by Irish Princess Designs
which will be in Roman's store when the tube is released
Font of choice, I am using Dollie Script
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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
open frame 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open a paper copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize 80%
erase the bits that hang out over your frame where you don't want them
add your elements
water arrange at the bottom of the frame, drag the water layer below the frame layer
and resize 85% arrange in front of the frame at the bottom
Net arrange at the tope of the frame

anchor resize 50% arrange to the left of the lighthouse
