This tutorial was written by me on May 16, 2012, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.
Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.
Mask of choice – I used Becky_Mask023
Font of choice – This one is “Realvirtue Regular”
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow
Sand tube that comes in PSP
C/P = copy/paste
DS = drop shadow – my settings were: 7_3_50_5_Black
Resize and sharpen each layer as needed
Paste each item as a new layer so we can move it around easier
Open new blank image in psp 650x600
Add new layer – flood fill with color of choice – this will be the sky
Layers - New Mask Layer - From Image - select your mask from the dropdown list – Apply
Right click mask layer in palette – Merge _Merge Group
C/P the wave element and place towards the bottom of sky
Adjust – Add/Remove Noise – Add Noise_ 36_Uniform_Monochrome Checked
Grab your selection tool - select the end edges of the waves – Selections – Modify –Feather_34_OK
Now hit delete until it softens the way you want
Add a new layer above the waves
Using the picture tube tool, select the sand tube – left click and drag across bottom edge of waves to make the beach, adding as much or as little sand as you like
C/P the Dolphin and place him behind the waves so it looks like he’s jumping from them
C/P the boat behind the waves also
C/P remaining elements from the kit, placing on the tag to your liking
Add a DS to all layers
Add all copyright information – I like to add a gradient glow to my copyrights so they stand out against the backgrounds better
Add your name in font of choice – I used “Realvirtue Regular”_72_Black then stretched it out a bit using the nodes
Convert to Raster
Eye Candy 4000_Gradient Glow_3_25_100_ Color to match tube (#02c56a taken from the girl’s hat)
