PTU - Under the Sea*

Under the Sea


 This tutorial was written by me on May 15, 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.


Tube of choice – I used the awesome art of Jeff Wilkie
Purchased from PTE – please do not use same tube without the proper license
“Summer Cocktail” scrap kit by Bibi’s Collection 
Sand picture tube that comes with PSP
Font of choice – Mine is “Ulbricht”
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow

To save time, I use the following abbreviations:
C/P = copy/paste
DS = drop shadow – my settings were:
All other layers: 0_0_100_5_Black
ANL = as new layer
R/S = resize/sharpen

Open new blank image 650x600 in psp
C/P element59 ANL – R/S
C/P element 45 ANL – R/S – DS
Open tube of choice in PSP
C/P ANL – R/S and move it between the frame and water layers
Duplicate tube bringing copy above frame
Erase the parts of top tube layer that cover the right side of frame – see my tag for example – You want it to look like the dolphins are coming thru the frame
DS the bottom Dolphin layer only
Add a new layer above frame
Using the picture tube tool in psp, find the sand tube – left click and hold down while dragging across canvas to place sand to your liking – I went across once with mine leaving it thin looking
C/P element 35 ANL – R/S and bring to top – duplicate and then merge down (this makes the bubbles easier to see) – DS
C/P element 57 ANL – R/S – DS and place on right side of frame
C/P element 19 ANL – R/S – DS and position at bottom right corner of frame - duplicate and move copy slightly off center
C/P element 69 ANL – R/S – DS and position between the pink seaweed layers, raising it up slightly
C/P element 40 ANL – R/S – DS and place on the left corner of frame
C/P element 60 ANL – R/S – DS and place slightly above/right of white shell
C/P element 44 ANL – R/S – DS and place slightly on top of the other shells
OPTIONAL – add new layer above seaweed – use the sand tube again and add a little sand, changing the size, to cover bottom of stems making it look like the plants are growing out of the sand
Add all correct copyright info
Add your name/wording in font of choice – I chose “Ulbricht”_72_black_lower case letters
Effects – Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow_3_25_100_color of choice (#65afbc chosen from Dolphin )
Add DS
Save and you’re done!!
