Oceana

PTU CT tag/tut for Scrappin' Krazy Designs using her beautiful and packed scrap kit Oceana. Visit her blog to see where to buy it.


The creation of this tutorial was created by my own little mind. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is strictly a coincidence.
Do not copy this tutorial or claim it as your own. If you would like to share it, please share the link to my blog ONLY.
This tutorial was written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop. This tutorial can be adapted for anyone with a working knowledge of PSP.

Before we start, I would like to remind you to save frequently. This is in case your program closes on you as mine is known to do. J  I save as a .psd file. This keeps your elements in layers instead of merging everything the way a .png file does. I also I do not say copy and paste your element onto your canvas. In Photoshop, it is possible to drag and drop. But if you are more comfortable copying and pasting, then by all means do what is easier for you. I also use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.

Supplies needed:
Scrappin’ Krazy Designs, Oceana scrap kit. You can find where to buy it here.

I’m using the very awesome tube Mermaid Girl from Ismael Rac. You can get it here.

Mask used is WMD003. You can find it here.

Font used is Cancun. You can use any font you want though.

Open a canvas 550x550

Create your mask using paper p01. Place at the top of your canvas or to your liking.

E13: Place at the bottom of your canvas.

E50: Reduce 80.1%. Place in the center of your canvas towards the top. Add a drop shadow.

E38: Reduce 86.5%. Place in the middle of the frame or to your liking. Duplicate.

E40: Flip horizontally. Reduce 95.3%. Place towards the bottom of your canvas.

E28: Reduce 57.4%. Place towards the bottom in the middle of your canvas or to your liking. Duplicate and place near the top on the left side of your canvas or to your liking.

E08: Reduce 41.8%. Place in the lower left corner of your canvas. Add a drop shadow.

E45: Reduce 32.5%. Place at the bottom of your canvas, towards the right or to your liking. Add a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in front of E08 to your liking.

E57: Reduce 32.6%. Place in the upper left corner. Add a drop shadow.

E36: Reduce 59.8%. Place on the lower left of your canvas. Duplicate twice. Take the last copy and flip horizontally. Place on the lower right of your canvas, to your liking. Duplicate.
Note:
The purpose of duplicating is to allow the element to show up without the use of a drop shadow. I personally like the way it looks without the drop shadow sometimes. This is just my preference, if you prefer to use a drop shadow, then just delete the duplication steps.

E07: Reduce 20.6%. Place slightly off center to the right of your canvas at the bottom or to your liking. Add a drop shadow.
