Bubbles




In this tutorial I used the lovely art of Lady Mishka.
You require a license to use Lady Mishka’s art,
I purchased mine from PSP Tubes Emporium but
they are now available here.

The scrap kit I used is called “Mermaids” by
You can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 8, here.

Font of choice.



 
My usual reminder to you to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating, check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout over vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used pd12-pp-04.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

Open pd12-frame-04 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used pd12-pp-02.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open pd12-net-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, drag down below the frame and paper layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-seaweed, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open pd12-ribbon-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80% and position along the bottom of the frame, apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-02 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-shell-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-fish-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-starfish-02 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50% and place in position.  No shadow on this layer as there already is one.

Open pd12-fish-01 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20% and duplicate, place both fish in position and apply the drop shadow to each. 

Open pd12-water-drops and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-waves-02, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 75% and place in position.  No shadow on this layer. 

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  If you have any of the seaweed showing below the other elements, erase it. When you are happy, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, you can email me here.  I would of course love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
