Xero- Radiance (optional)
Open a new image 700 x 700. C/paste frame 1. Re size to 70%. Position frame approximately 2 thirds of the way down the page. Take the magic wand tool and click in centre of frame to float. Selections modify-expand by 2. Paste paper 5 re sized to 18%. Position below selection and invert and delete. Select none. Move this layer below frame.
C/paste Ocean element re sized to 75%. Position above lower half of frame and drop shadow. Above this C/Paste sand Element. Re size to 90%, rotate left by 4. Adjust gaussian blur by 3. C/Paste Cloud element re sized to 75%. Position behind top half of frame. See image below, this is what you should have now.
C/paste your tube and position in the centre of frame. Apply radiance to suit your image and add a drop shadow. Work remaining desired elements from kit around the tube and frame and drop shadow as desired.... I used
Palm. Re sized to 70%. Placed left of frame behind tube layer. Duplicate -mirror and position copy behind original and tube. Adjust gaussian blur by 1 and opacity to 80.
Bottles. Re size 40%. Placed left of frame above palm.
Sand. Re size 85%. Rotate left by 5. Changed colour slightly using ..Adjust- color balance-manual color correction. Position above bottles and tube along bottom of frame. Handy if like me you have used a half tube and need to disguise where it ends.

Sea Life. Re sized to 20%. Left of frame above Sand.
Lantern. Re sized 50%. Placed left above Sea Life.
Greenery. Re sized 40%. Left again, above lantern. use eraser tool to remove bottom of stem that exceeds below sea life.

Leaves. Re size 40%. Rotate right by 15. Bottom right of tag above drink.
Flower. Re size 40%. Image-mirror. Place right top of frame, behind drink. Duplicate and re size by 80%. Move down Slightly. Duplicate again re size by 80% and position bottom right above drink and leaves.
Bling. Re sized 50%. Rotate counter clockwise 90. Manual colour correction. Change the red to orange. Position right of tag above all other layers.
For the mask layer. Choose a paper from kit. ( I used Paper 1 ) Re size to 17%. Rotate counter clockwise by 90 and C/paste as a new layer at the bottom of layer palette. Load mask from disk - Fit to layer. In layer palette, delete mask and merge group. Duplicate and merge down , repeat until its at the opacity you d prefer then re size to 110%. Use raster deform tool to stretch the edges out a little and position as desired.
Merge all layers. Crop / re size and sharpen to your liking. Add name and relevant copyright and tube licence info. Save as PNG.
