This is a really easy-peasy tut. Promise. ;)
This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP XI,
tho' any version should work.
Tube: I'm using the adorable artwork of Maureen Seng which is
a new artist at Artistic Reality Talent & can only be found there.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.
Scrapkit: I'm using my FTU Summer Days kit,
which can be found here.
Mask: of choice.
Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Font: Pointed Brush
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 2 2 50 5, black.
Save your progress often.;)
Let's do this! =)
Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste paper of choice.
Apply your mask & merge group.
Next, add frame 4. Resize 80%.
Using your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- Expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste paper of choice, resized 70%.
Hit delete. Select none.
Now, add your tube. Resize her about 60%.
Position her on the right side of the frame.
Add Xero- Radiance:
Add a drop shadow to your tube.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise:
sand- No drop shadow.
mini boombox- 50%
weeds- 60%. Duplicate & resize another 80%.
No drop shadow.
beach bag- 40%
flipflop- 30%. Duplicate.
sun- 40%. No drop shadow.
sun rays- no drop shadow.
Add any other elements if you prefer.
Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Now, add your name. Add a bevel:
Give it a gradient glow:
Then add a drop shadow.
Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.
