PTU - Beachy Keen

Beachy Keen

This tutorial was written by me on May 12, 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. 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.


Tube of choice – I used an awesome tube by Scott See  from Artistic Reality Talent  – Please do not use this same tube without the proper license
PTU Scrap Kit – Beach Party by the talented Irish Bitch Designs – this kit
can also be purchased at ART
Font of choice – I used “Miss Robertson”
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow
Mura’s Meister - Clouds
Mask of choice – I used Becky_Mask023

In psp, open a new image 650x600.
Open “sand” element – copy/paste onto image as a new layer
Resize and place towards bottom of image – sharpen
Open “water” element – c/p as new layer onto image – resize, and position below sand so it looks like the sand runs into the water – sharpen
C/P element “water2” as new layer – resize and position this on top of water layer – sharpen – Right click water2 layer in layer palette - merge_merge down
Add a little noise to the water by going to -
Adjust – Add/Remove Noise – Add Noise – Uniform_17_monochrome checked
Add a new layer and send to very bottom of image
Go to Effects_Muras’s Meister_ Clouds – these settings:

 Open mask of choice in psp and apply to cloud layer by going to - Layers_New Mask Layer_From Image_and choose your mask from the drop down list
Right click mask layer in layer palette_merge_merge group
Position behind water layer to look like the sky
C/P the following elements – resizing – sharpening – placing where you like:
Towel 3
Picnic Basket
Flip Flops
Chair & Umbrella
Shells 1, 2, and 5
Word Art 2
Shovel & Pail

C/P tube of choice onto image – Resize, sharpen, and place to your liking
Add a drop shadow to tube and all element layers ( not the water, sand, or sky )
My settings are: For Word Art_4_3_100_5_Black
All other elements_4_3_50_5_Black
Add all correct copyright information
Now add your name in font of choice – Mine is done in Miss Robertson_72_Black
Go to Effects_Eye Candy 4000_Gradient Glow_3_25_100_ #f8ae00_Or color to match your tube
Add same drop shadow as the elements
Save and you’re done!!
