Touch Of 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 Ismael Rac (2013 Hot Attitude) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using A Touch of Sea by Graphics of Fantasy,
which you can purchase at Graphics of Fantasy, S&SCo, PFD, & Scraps From the Heart

Font of choice, I am using Walker on the Moon

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 2 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 7 copy and paste as a new layer leave selected
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 75%
arrange in your frame, then take the eraser tool and erase what hangs over the bottom of the frame
then deslect

Now we can add our elements, check my tag example for a more exact idea where to place items
element 104 resize  75% arrange on bottom right corner
duplicate, mirror, resize 80% and drag it over to the bottom right
element 67 resize  65% arrange behind the element 104 on the bottom right
element 5 resize  75% arrange behind the other flowers on the bottom right
duplicate, rotate left by 25, mirror, drag back over and place behind the original element 5 layer
element 25 resize 55 % arrange between the two weeds & rocks elements on the bottom right
element 40, erase the chain part and arrange between the rock & lighthouse on bottom right
element 42 resize  35% arrange in front of the lighthouse
element 48 resize  35% arrange in front of rock, on the bottom in the center area
element 80 resize 125% arrange just above the white background layer, at the top of the frame,
duplicate & drag the duplicate layer down to the bottom of the frame, merge these two layers together

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
