Your Beach or Mine? PTU
This tutorial was written on June 11, 2010 Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.
++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)
++Scrap kit by called Seaside Getaway by Crazed’s Creations can be found HERE
++Template 354 by Missy can be found HERE
++Tube of choice or the one I used. I used the artwork of Bam Bam and you can purchase his work from HERE
-Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
++Font and mask of choice
-Add Drop shadow of choice as you go
-You can merger layers as you want to make things easier for yourself.
Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.
Open several papers of choice, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I’ve opened (say like paper 2) it tells me what percentage I’m viewing it at. For me it’s usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you’ve done this, minimize for later use.
Next go to the bottom template layer and go to selections, select all, then float, selections defloat. Don’t forget to go to selections, none then delete the template layer. Repeat this process for the rest of the template. Add a gradient glow of your choosing also. NOTE: ** I removed the word art from the template.
First we are going to build the “scene” inside the top square frame. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Go to selections, Modify, expand by 8. On a new raster layer flood fill with the beach scene paper. Go to selections, none.
Open the light house you like, resize it then copy and paste to the bottom left corner of the frame. Add the palm tree you like to the opposite side of the frame. Pick the flower and shell you like resize tehm then add towards the bottom of the frame.
Then open your tube of choice, resize then copy and paste as a new layer to the right of the tag. Duplicate it and go to adjust, blur, guassian blur and set it to 3. On the blend mode option in the layers palette, change it to overlay. Then change the opacity of the layer down to where you like.
Next open both the surfboards. Resize them then copy and paste as new layers to the left of the tag. Make sure they are below the background frame layer. Angle them in opposite directions.
Now open the lifesaver, resize it then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the bottom left frame layer. Add a flower you like over that.
Add the towel you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move down below the frame layer and angel it to the right. Add a sea shell to the opposite side. Also add the flower you like in between these two items. Remember to adjust as you like.
Then open the folded ribbon you like. Resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the bottom of the tag as you like it. Make sure it covers the bottom of the tube layer.
Open the chair, beach ball, pail and shovel. Arrange them as you like to the left of the tag.
Then open the flip flop you like. Duplicate it and arrange them to the right side of the ribbon to make them a pair. Add the sunglasses you like also.
Next open the umbrella you like, resize then copy and paste as a new layer. Move to the upper left corner behind the frame and background layer. Angle it to the left. Add the anchor and bow of your choosing.
On the opposite corner add the paper lantern and starfish you like.
Finally add your copyrights, tagger markings, license number and save.
Thanks for trying my tutorial!
