The Tropics


1 tube of choice – I used the artwork of Keith Garvey which can be purchased from PSP Tubes Emporium.  You must have a license to use.

Font of choice - I used Epifania here

Becky Mask 22 here

“Summer Cocktail” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Aurelie of Pink Candy Designs and can be downloaded from her blog here.
Please leave a thank you when downloading as it’s a small gesture for something given freely.

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.

Copy and paste Frame 2 as a new layer.
Resize 85%
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 2 Into Selection.
Deselect for now.

Add the following elements below the frame – see my tag for reference:
(Don’t worry about the elements that overhang the frame.  We’ll clean that up in a bit)
