The 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 Zlata M (Mermaid) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Little Mermaid by Graphics of Fantasy, made to match the tube.

Font of choice, I am using Simply Glamorous

Mask: Millie's PSP Madness Mask 53

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 950 x 950 pixels with a white background

Copy and paste paper 2 apply your mask
Copy and paste frame 4 as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 5
add a new raster layer below the frame make sure you are on that layer
open paper 9 copy and paste into selection, deselect

add the following elements
element 60 arrange below frame on left, duplicate & mirror, merge these two layers together change opacity to about 60

element 70 arrange along the top of the first layer of sand on the left, duplicate & mirror, merge these two layers together, drop opacity to 80

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 80% arrange on the right

element 6 arrange beneath the tube layer
element 8 arrange on left side of frame, mirror
element 113 arrange across top of frame
element 44 resize  80% arrange behind plants on the right side of frame
element 29 resize  60% arrange across top of frame
element 89 arrange below the colorful rocks under the tube

element 35 resize  50% arrange behind the plants layers so it looks like it's in the water in the bottom center of the frame

element 2 resize  45% arrange on bottom left near the rocks and plants
element 93 resize  50% mirror arrange just above the background layer in the frame, drop opacity to 50
element 97 resize  40% arrange on bottom left
element 100 resize  40% mirror and arrange near the center on the bottom
element 101 resize  40% arrange near the tube's hands on the bottom
element 8, resize 30% arrange in front of the bigger one on the left
duplicate & mirror, drag back over to the left side

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
