Ocean Melody

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 Ninaste - Beehive Studio (Melody tube) which you need a license to use.  This tube comes with several layers for different color choices and to add or remove accessories.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching kit for this tube layer, Melody by Hania Design

Font of choice, I am using Into The Wild

Mask: WSL Mask82
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!
