FTU Summer Vacation

Summer Vacation was written by Myself on 23rd June 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Supplies Needed
Tube of choice. I used ' Summer' A beautiful tube by Alex Prihodko. Available from Pics for Design   HERE

Fab, Ftu Scrap Kit 'At the beach' by Nicky @ Inzpired Creationz Freebiez  HERE

You ll find the kit as part of bundle 1. These were Ptu kits that Nicky has retired and  now generously letting us have for free. So please leave a thank you when downloading :)

Mask used is my own. HERE  if you d like it.

Filters Used
PhotoEffex- Scanlines (optional)

Open a new image 700 x 700. C/paste Paper 8 as a new layer and re size to 85%. Load mask from disk - Fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Duplicate layer and merge down to strengthen opacity.

C/paste Frame 2 as a new layer. Re size to 90%. Click in centre of frame with magic wand tool to float. Selections - Expand by 4. C/paste paper 1 . Invert the selection and hit delete. Move new layer below frame. Whilst selection is still floated C/paste a close up of your tube. Position within the selection to the left of frame and hit delete again. Select none and move tube layer below frame. Change blend mode of close up to luminance legacy and reduce opacity to 20%.

C/paste your main tube. Position where desired and drop shadow. Now work desired elements from kit around tube and frame layer and drop shadow to your liking... I used

Sand 1 - 85%. Position along bottom of frame. Beneath tube.

Grass - Left of canvas behind frame.

Flower 2 -60%. Rotate left by 90. Bottom left above grass, behind frame. Duplicate and mirror copy to right. Duplicate again and move this copy to top left of canvas.

Parrot 1 - 25%. Image mirror. Top left of frame.

Palm Tree 1 - 70%. Top Right of frame behind tube layer. Apply Scanlines on default settings if desired.

Sunlight - Top Right above palm behind tube.

Sandcastle - 50%. Bottom right, Above sand. Behind tube layer.

Shell 2 - 35%. Mirror and position bottom right of canvas above sandcastle.

Starfish 1 - 30%. Bottom right above shell.

Grass 2 - 50%. Bottom right behind frame.

Cup of shells - 30%. Above sand. Slightly to left of castle. Behind tube.

Hat 1 - 60%. Bottom left of canvas. Above frame. Behind tube.

Sunblock - 30%. Bottom left. above hat.

Grass stem - 80%. Bottom left. Above hat behind tube. Remove bottom part of stem with eraser tool.

Merge layers. Crop/re size and sharpen to your liking. Add name and relevant copyright and tube licence info. Save as Png.
