Underwater World

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 Trinita (Mermaid) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Graphics of Fantasy called Magical Underwater World
available at Graphics of Fantasy Store and at Pics For Design

Font of choice, I am using Lisbon Script

Mask of your choice

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

Add the following:
element 71, duplicate about 5 times and arrange along the bottom
once you get the sand how you'd like, hide the white background and merge visible, then
unhide the white background

 element 63  arrange at the top of the sand on the right, duplicate, mirror arrange on the left

element 1 resize  110% arrange behind the sand and green layers
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 3
add a new raster layer below the frame, make sure you are on that layer
copy and paste paper bg02 into selection, then deselect

 Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 45% arrange on the right
element 34 arrange below the frame layer, along the top
element 141 arrange behind tube

element 4 rotate right 90 arrange on left, duplicate, mirror, drag back to left, resize 55% arrange to the left of the original layer

element 97 arrange to the right of the purple leaves
element 70 resize  55% arrange on the left
element 125 resize  55% arrange in front of tube
element 74 resize  65% arrange on right side
element 91 resize  55% arrange behind plants on left
element 76 resize  65% arrange on bottom center
element 92, resize 25% arrange in front of the purple seaweed

add a paper above the white background and apply  your mask

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