Island Adventure

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 (CDO Exclusive 5A) 
which you need a license to use.
This tube is a CDO Exclusive tube, one of several she has there. You can ONLY find it at CDO.
Here is where you can find all her CDO exclusives.
You can find all her other tubes at her site here

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Scrappin' With Lil Ole Me called Island Adventures

Font of choice, I am using Aligot de Mirabelle

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

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer
leave in the center

Add the following elements
element 68 resize  45% arrange on the right side of the tube
element 67 resize  40% & them by 75% arrange to the left of the sand castle

element 77 resize  90% arrange below the other sand layers
change the hue to 28 saturation to 75

element 91 arrange beneath sand

element 60 resize  90% arrange below the other layers, drag down to where the bottom of the posts is even with the bottom of the grass

element 18 resize  65% arrange behind the fence layer
element 72 arrange on top of the other water layer, duplicate & mirror
element 85 arrange behind the other water layers in the center
element 20 resize  35% arrange on the bottom right
element 49 resize  55% arrange on bottom left on top of other water layers, duplicate & mirror
element 96 resize  75% arrange on left by the end of the fence, duplicate & mirror, drag up
element 89 resize  50% arrange between the sand & fence layer on the left, duplicate & mirror
element 73 resize  25% arrange on bottom left
element 30 resize  25% arrange by fence on left side
element 65 resize  25% arrange in front of the sand/bottle element
