Beach Doll

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 Derzi - Beehive Studios (Fairy Doll tube), which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Summer Girl, a PTU kit by Hania Design

Font of choice, I am using Dear Joe 6

Mask of your choice

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 65%

Add the following elements:
element 5 arrange below the tube layer, duplicate, mirror drag the duplicate up, merge together

element 30 resize  125% arrange on the right, duplicate 2x, drag one to the left of the original, mirror the other, line them up and merge together

element 55 resize 55% arrange by the right side of the fence
element 18 resize  60% arrange on left side of tube
element 80 resize  50% arrange in front of tree
element 35 resize  35% arrange to the left of the sand castle
element 72 resize  45% arrange near the fence on the left

Add paper 7 above the white background and apply your mask

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