Summer Living









I used the awesome work of Popeye Wong. The 
tube is called Sandy Joy.  You can find his awesome work
HERE and his tubes HERE.
My kit, Summer Things, HERE on the Creative Chicks blog.

Two of my masks LLM 616 and LLM 584 on my blog HERE.
Mura Meister Copies or a Sand Tube.
For the name layer, I used Unthrift Second Personal font.

Are yas ready! Ok! Let's begin!

Open an image-use size of choice,....I chose 700x700.
Select all, add  a new layer, copy and paste paper 13 into selection.
Add  My mask 616 or a mask of choice.
Layers, Merge, Merge group. Resize to 50%. Move to one side.  Duplicate and mirror.
Arrange these to layers to fit most of your canvas. 

Select all, add  a new layer, copy and paste paper 9 into selection.
Add  My mask 584 or a mask of choice.

Layers, Merge, Merge group. Resize to 50%. Move to one side.  Duplicate and mirror.
Arrange these to layers to fit most of your canvas. 
Now click on your top mask layer.  Copy and paste my sand as a new layer and 
resize it to fit around the size of the two beach scene layers. 
For the sand layer beneath my tube's feet:
Click on the layer under the beach scene layer. Grab your freehand tool and
draw like a circle. Add a new layer and use the same Murameisther cloud settings.  
I also added noise --setting at 20. Deselect.

Now we add our elements. I used:

Sun Resized to 50%.
Speedboat resized to 50%.
Dolphin  Resized 45%.
Beach Scene. Move to one side.  Duplicate and mirror.
Now click on your top mask layer. 
This next step is optional, and if you do do it, it can be done different
ways.  You can either find a suitable sand element of choice and leave it as is.
 Or you can do it the way I did:
Copy and paste my sand element as a new layer .
Select all float defloat, Mura meister copies, sand with the settings below. 
Alwalys remember, if you want, you can play 
around with the settings to get the look you want.
I only did the above step with my sand element because I wanted to have more 
sand of a similar color. 

Pail resized to 20%. Add a few sea shells and the starfish.  Resize them all about 15% to 20%. 
I Resized Sea Shell 1 to 12%.
Beach Ball Resized to 20%.
Add your tube of choice, if you wish, anywhere you see fit.


Resize and arrange the elements to the way you like them.
Crop and/or resize your tag to your liking.

Add your watermark if you wish, and make 
sure you add the copyright for the image you used.
Add your name or name(s) of whoever you want.

A Berry Good Summer






What you will need is a tube of choice.
I chose a lovely tube by the amazing Zlata_M.
This tube came from Pics For Design in a Superset.

Cluster by KS Designs HERE.


A mask of choice or my Mosaic Mask HERE.
It is the first one in the post.
You will also need a paper or background of choice.

**Remember to sharpen each layer that you resize
and add a drop shadow of choice  all layers of choice. **



Maximize your cluster and Shift D to duplicate.  Close the original.
Click the inside of the cluster, Selections, modify selections, expand by 3. Add a
new layer and copy and paste paper of choice into selections. You can also
fill this layer with a color or gradient complimenting your tube. Move this layer
under your cluster layer. Do not deselect!  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, between
the cluster background layer and the cluster.

Resize as desired, and erase any part of the tube showing beyond the cluster layer.

Now go to bottom layer and add a new layer. Send this layer to bottom.
Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Find your mask and add it from image
or  from disc. Merge group.


Add your watermark if you wish, and make
sure you add the copyright for the image you used.
Add your name or name(s) of whoever you want.
I am unsure of the font I used. I will add it when I find out.
