“Tropical Summer” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Delicate Pearl and be purchased from Scrappin’ withFriends.  You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Pearl for such a beautiful kit.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~~ Lets get started ~~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #add3d7
Background: #ffffff

Copy and paste el28 as a new layer.
Resize 70%
Free rotate Left 90 degrees.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 2.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Apply Mura’s Meister – Cloud:
Click the reset button.
Rename “Water”.

Copy and paste the following elements below the frame – see my tag for placement.  Don’t worry about what overhangs the frame.  We’ll clean that up in a bit.
el01:  Resize 30%/Duplicate
el12:  Resize 25%
el11:  Resize 25%
el36 & 37:  Resize 20%/Duplicate as many times as you like and resize as you like.  Mirror some of the fish and lower the opacity on a few.

Highlight the “Water” layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight any elements that overhang the frame and tap the delete key.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Position in front of the frame.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #a93959

Open up el08
Shift + D.
Close out the original.
Use your Target Tool and colorize the flower using the foreground color.
Resize 30%
Move into position – see my tag for reference.

Add your elements.  I used:
el07:  Resize 25%
el46:  Resize 40%/Position behind the frame/Duplicate/Mirror
el03:  Resize 40%/Duplicate
el46 again:  Resize 25%/Duplicate/Mirror/position in front of the frame
el42:  Resize 40%/Duplicate

Crop your image.

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 14 Into Selection.
Adjust/Blur/Gaussian Blur:
Radius: 10
Apply the mask.
Use your Pick Tool to pull the sides out a little.
Merge Group.

Add your credits.

Add your name.
Foreground: #a93959
Background: #879a27
Stroke: 1.0
Type your name.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Resize all layers 80%.

I’d love to see your results.
