Shipwrecked was written by Myself on 8th August 2013. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Mask Wsl 236 by Chelle HERE
Font used is Trinigan
Open a new image 700 x 700. Starting with the mask layer. C/paste paper 7 from kit. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Re size layer 120 %.
C/paste Frame 5 re sized to 90%. Click in centre of each circle with magic wand tool to float. Selections - Modify - Expand by 2 . C/paste paper 10. Invert the selection and hit delete. Select none. Move paper layer below frame. Add a drop shadow to frame and merge the 2 layers.
C/paste Tree element - Re sized to 80%. Mirror image and rotate to right by 6. Position top right of mask above the frame layer. D/shadow. Duplicate the tree and move the copy behind the frame layer. Working on original, use eraser tool to remove trunk of tree from above the frame, so that tree branches are above the frame, trunk is behind.
C/paste Sand element re sized to 90 %. Position along bottom of tag at the bottom of frame. Duplicate, on bottom copy adjust gaussian blur by 10. Reduce opacity on top copy to 70. Use eraser tool to remove bottom of mask that is visible below sand. See pic.. this is where we are at this point...
C/paste your tube, move to the left side of tag. If like me you are using a half tube then position behind the sand to disguise where the tube ends. D shadow.
Now add desired elements from kit and d/shadow to your liking....I used
Trunk - 50%. Bottom right of tag above Sand.
Bags - 60%. Bottom right behind Trunk.
Rolled Paper - 40%. Rotate right by 32. Bottom right above Trunk.
Seagull - 40 %. Bottom right above Rolled Paper.
Keys - 25 %. Bottom right above Rolled Paper.
Coconut - 70%. Bottom centre. Behind Rolled Paper.
Ship - 70%. Image - Mirror. Bottom left, behind Coconut. Above tube.
Grass - 70%. Bottom centre behind Coconut, above Trunk. Duplicate and move copy to left above Frame behind tube. Duplicate and mirror copy to right side of canvas above Frame behind Bags.
Lizard - 40%. Image - Mirror- Rotate right by 18. Position to right. Above Frame behind grass.
Merge Layers. Crop/re size and sharpen to your liking. Add name and relevant copyright and tube licence info. Save as Png....
