Treachery On High Seas

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 Alicia Mujica (Perla Negra) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Bibi's Collection called Sea Pirate 

My word art file please do not share this, direct people to this tut
Font of choice, I am using Pirates Bay

Mask: Becky Mask 23, she no longer has a site, but I have linked to 
where you can download it

Plugins: No outside plugins
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

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 46% arrange on the right

add the following
element 23  arrange to the left of and behind the tube
element 25 resize  65% arrange to the left of and behind the chest
element 60 resize  65% arrange between the chest and the tube
element 39 arrange in front of chest
element 40 resize  50% arrange on left side of chest by books
element 92 resize 80% arrange behind tube, duplicate & mirror
element 19 resize  40% arrange on the top of the left tree
element 20 resize  75% arrange just above the mask in the center of the tag
element 150 resize  55% arrange above the trees in the center
element 99 arrange to the left of the books

element 52 resjze 30% arrange in her hand, 
drop the opacity so you can see her through the paper, and take your eraser set on about 3 pixels
and slowly erase her thumb, and nothing else, then bring the opacity back up to 100%

add the word art to the scroll paper
add the name you want on the paper below the word art

Copy and paste paper 8 above the white background
apply your mask

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