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
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:
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!!
