Pirate Cove

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 from Beehive Studio which you need a license to use. 
This tube is Elfie the Witch Pirate and she comes with different outfits for Elf, witch & pirate
and each outfit also has several choices to change up their clothing

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Shiver Me Timbers by Hania's Design
This kit was made to match this tube

Font of choice, I am using Pirates Bay

Mask: DVB Mask 111 by Designs by Vaybs

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 paper 8
apply your mask and merge group

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 45%
arrange  in the center area of the sand

Now add the following elements:

element 1 resize 65% mirror & arrange on bottom right, behind tube layer
element 41 resize 45% arrange to the right of and behind the boat layer
element 61 resize  45% mirror & arrange on rock, duplicate, resize 65% drag below other vine

element 36 resize  45% arrange on rock
element 42 resize  45% arrange to the left of the boat, behind the tube layer
element 45 resize  65% arrange in front of chest and boat

element 77 resize 40%  mirror & arrange on right, erase the bits that show over the tree
element 35 resize 40% arrange to the left of and behind tube
element 19 resize  35% arrange in front of and left of the brown barrel
element 29 resize 35% arrange in front of barrels

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