Happiness - FTU

 This tutorial was written in PSP 9 and can be used with any other version. I assume that you have a working knowledge of PSP.


Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice/close up

FTU Scrap kit by Melissa's Creationz
"Beach Party" At Her blog HERE

Template 606 by Millie

Font of choice

Happiness is a journey
Wordart HERE

Plugins Optional:
Red paw media - RPM beautifier
Photoeffex - scanlines
Eyecandy 4000 - gradient glow

"Delete" on your keyboard under Insert.

I used the artwork of Martin Abel
You can find his art HERE

*Working with tons of layers*

Open template, Image- rotate- rotate clockwise 90
Now all of your circles should be on top, remove copyrights
Remove wordart we don't need it, unless you use a mermaid tube

Image- canvas size set to 600x600
Close out of all of your layers but the back one
Should be layer "1" selections- all- float- defloat
Copy and paste paper as new layer, I used paper
Selections- invert- delete. select none. delete original layer.
Now add your gradient glow to this. As you can see i used two colors
black and white, i added noise to the white an now add noise. hide

Unhide next two layers, "2" and "3" merge these
Selections- all- float- defloat- copy and paste paper as new layer
selections- invert- delete. select none. add a slight drop shadow
Delete the original template layer, now hide this layer.

Unhide next layer "4" Selections- all- float- defloat
copy and paste paper as new layer, Selections- invert
select none. delete original layer, add a slight dop shadow. now hide.

Unhide the next layer, which is "5" this should be the big green circle
Selections- all- float- defloat- copy and paste paper as new layer
Selections- invert- delete- select none. delete original layer. hide

Now let's unhide the 3 green circles. merge them together
Selections- all- float- defloat. Layers- add new raster layer
Using your flood fill tool (paint bucket) choose the colors you want
and click inside the marching ants circles and lay down your color
I choose pink on the outsides and black for the middle. on 1 layer
or add 3 different new raster layers. Selects- select none.
Delete original circle layers now open your tubes of choice

Using your magic wand click the pink circles. copy and paste your tubes
as a new layer, using your drag tool drag the tubes faces inside where you want
Selections- invert- delete. select none. Now do the same for the black circle
If you plan on using two different colors. For the pink circles i changed the tube
blend mode to screen. then Adjust- hue and saturation- colorize- both dials at 0

On your black circle, if you choose this color. adjust- hue and saturation- colorize
both dials at zero. I didn't change the blend mode. but i did lower the ocpacity
Now add Photoeffex- scanlines on your tubes layer
add a gadient glow. i choose the color white. then add noise/drop shadow.

Now merge all of the layers for your circles. unhiding the rest of your layers.

Now it's time to add your main tube. i placed her kinda in the middle
added a slight drop shadow. now it's time to add the elements. I used:
rainbow bikini, beach ball, starfish, tiki torch , pink, purple, orange lilies,
rainbow flip flops, palm tree, coconut drink, papers 2, 3, 6, 12,
Resize and add where you want or use my tag as a guide

I added RPM beautifier to the whole tag just a little bit i don't remember
the settings so mess around with the settings to fit your own needs. or leave it

Now add your copyrights, save as a PNG
add your name and now you're done!
