Ok...Yas ready? Let's begin!


Open a new image-size of choice. I made mine 630x630.

Using my Pot Pourri Paper 15 and Mask 569, copy and paste the paper on the bottom 
layer. Now add my mask or a mask of choice to the paper. Merge,
Merge group. I also used the Manual Color Correction tool 
and changed the colors from #5187ca  to  #00c0c0.
Resize to 85% and move to one side. Duplicate and mirror.

The elements I used are as follows:

From my kit:

Sun resized to 50%.
My Grass resized to 50%.  Recolor if you want.  Resize
to 85% and move to one side. Duplicate and mirror
or position to the way you like it.

Tube of choice. Resize to desired size to fit adequately on your tag.

Here is where I used the Playball font to add my own wordart and names.
So, be creative and add whatever you want!

I never merge my layers. I advise you to do the same.
This way you can always save it and change whatever you want 
in the future.

Add your watermark if you wish, and make 
sure you add the copyright for the image you used.

I saved mine as a PNG image.
You are done!

I am in the process of writing a Halloween one, but it may

tomorrow before I get it posted.

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.
