FTU- Summer Days

Click for bigger

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.

Supplies Needed: 
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.
surfboard- 75%
mini boombox- 50%
weeds- 60%.  Duplicate & resize another 80%. 
No drop shadow.

wave- 80%
beach bag- 40%
camera- 45%
drink- 35%
sunglasses- 30%
puppy- 35%
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.
