Tropical Vacation

I am using the lovely artwork of Joerg Warda. To use his art you must purchase a license at MPT HERE. The scrap kit I used is a fantastic freebie by Tantrum called Tropicana. You can pick the kit up HERE. The masks I used are by WeeScottLass (#60 and #254) You can find them HERE. Other tropical foliage and scenic tube is in my supplies HERE.

No plug ins needed.

Let's get started!

Open a new image 700x700 and floodfill it with white. Resize frame 2 80% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Click inside the frame with your magic wand. Selections-modify-expand by 6. Copy and paste paper 4 over the selection. Selections-invert-hit delete on the keyboard. Move the paper under the frame. Select none. Activate the frame again and click inside with your magic wand again. Expand by 6 again. Copy and paste the scenic tube over the selection. Selections-invert-delete. Bring the tube under your frame. Reduce the opacity of the tube to 80.

Activate the white background layer. Resize the blue paper and copy and paste it as a new layer. Apply WSL_Mask60 to the paper. Merge group.

Use your raster deform tool and move the bottom of the mask up to the middle of the frame to appear as the sky.

Copy and paste paper 21 as a new layer. Apply WSL_Mask254 to this paper. Merge the group.

Use your raster deform tool and move the top of the mask down to the middle to appear as sand.

Resize mini bow 3 80% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place at the top of the frame. Resize the pink starfish 30% and copy and paste it as a new layer. Place in the middle of the bow.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Copy and paste the potted palm in my supples as a new layer. Place on the left side of the frame behind your tube. Duplicate it and mirror.

Copy and paste the palm tree in my supplies as a new layer. Place it behind the potted palm on the left side of the frame. See my tag for reference.

Resize and copy and paste the tropical plant from the kit as a new layer. Place on the left above the potted palm. Duplicate and mirror. Place behind the potted palm on the right side.

Copy and paste H flower 2 as a new layer. Place on the lower left of the frame. Duplicate and Mirror.

Add any other elements of choice. I used a few shells and the yellow hibiscus flower

Drop shadow all pieces of the tag.

Crop and resize the tag. Add your copyright info, your watermark and your name. I wrote out "Wish you were here xoxo Dee" in a font called Ministry script.

Animation: setting sun rays (optional)

Activate the scenic tube. Take your freehand selection tool and make a selection similar to the one below:

 

Go to effects-illumination effects-sunburst and apply with the following settings:

 

Select none. Copy and paste your tag merged into animation shop and paste it as a new animation.

Back to psp. Undo select none, and sunburst.

Reapply sunburst again, moving the brighness under Rays to 13. Select none and copy the tag merged into animation shop and paste it after current frame. Do this process one more time changing the ray brightness to 14.

Edit-select all and change the frame properties to 20.

Run your animation and save as a gif!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Hugs,

Dee
