CT TUTORIAL ~ Pamela's Paradise

NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written July 28, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.  I am using Pamela Summers by Vi Nina.  You can purchase her here.)

-- scrap kit of choice (I used the made to match kit by Disturbed Scraps, which you can find here.) 
-- template of choice.  (I'm using a template by Designz by Ali.)
-- mask of choice.  (I am using mask 90 by Rissa.)
-- [optional] texture(s) of choice.  (I am using a texture by spooky-window, which you can find at deviantart.)
-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font or alpha of choice.  I am using the alpha "Windy City" by Designz by Sue, which you can purchase here.

1.  Open template, duplicate, close original and save the template copy as your new canvas.

2.  Paste in your texture or a paper from your kit.  Move to bottom and apply mask.  Merge group.

3.  Select and paste in three papers from your kit; choose at least one scenic or distinctly patterned.  Paste them in and move them to directly above the layers you will apply them to.  Select the bottom most shape, then go to your selections menu: select all, float, defloat, invert and then select the paper and hit the delete key.  Repeat this step with your other two papers.

4.  Paste in your tube.  Apply Jazzy's drop shadow, resize if needed and position where preferred.

5.  Time for some elements.   Numbers/names apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Any directions for placement of elements are optional - you can follow them or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

2, 3, 4, 6 (flowers) - resize each between 40-50%.  place opposite tube and arrange as preferred.
20 (shell) - 45%.  place next to flowers.
25 (star) - 55%.  Go to Mura Meister > Copies and apply the Encircle preset.  Drop this layer to the bottom.
35 (sorbet) - 40%
38 (cocktail) - 50%.
24 (large shell) - 25%.  Go to Mura Meister > Copies and apply the Spiral preset.  Set number of copies to 70.  Drop this layer to just below the mask layer.
49 (beach ball) - 50%.
79 (sparkle trail) - NO drop shadow.

6.  Create a new raster layer for your name if using a font.  If using an alpha, transfer your letters to the canvas.  Resize to your preference, arrange them to spell out your name and then merge them down into a single layer.

7.  Go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

8.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark and add it on.
