Pool Party

PTU/CT tutorial for Drea's Designs. I used her Pool Party kit which is packed with tons of elements to work with.
You can find where to buy her kit on her blog here.


The creation of this tutorial is my own 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 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:
Pool Party scrap kit from Dreas Designs. You can find where to buy it here.

The tube I’m using is Taurus from Ismael Rac. Remember, you cannot use any tubes without a license.

Mask: MWD mask 001 made by me. You can get it here.

Font used is Brannboll Fat Regular, you can use any font you want.

Okay, let’s get started.

Open a canvas 600x600.

Create your mask using paper 17. Place in the center of your canvas or to your liking. Lower Opacity to 70%.

DD_41: Reduce width 60.71%, height 60.26%. Place midway off center. It will look as if the tree is floating.

DD_87: Reduce width 22.33%, height 24.49%. Place towards the top of your canvas. The clouds will be touching the tree or place to your liking.

DD_37: Reduce 41.57%. Place towards the right side of your canvas to your liking. Again, it will look as if the tree is floating.

DD_18: Reduce 50.20%. Place midway to the right of your canvas. Add a drop shadow. Duplicate, rotate -2.0. Reduce to 97.79% place on the left side of your canvas.

DD_33: Reduce width 53.64%, height 45.14%. Place on the left below the fence to your liking. Duplicate and place slightly lower than the original copy. Duplicate again and place towards the right side of your canvas to your liking.

DD_75: Reduce width 28.47%, height 28.06%. Place on the right side of the fence. Make it look as if the lights are hanging. Add a drop shadow and duplicate. Place duplicate in the middle of the fence and duplicate again placing that copy on the left side of the fence so they look like a string of lights.

DD_34: Reduce 15.92% width, 15.98% height. Place on the bottom left of your fence or to your liking. Duplicate twice. Take the last copy and place at the bottom of the fence. It should be near the tree on the left.

DD_32: Reduce 56.91% width, 70.30% height. Place to the right of the first copy of element DD_34 or to your liking. Duplicate and place to the right of your canvas. Duplicate again and enlarge to these dimensions. 138.8% width, 137.93% height. Place centered towards the front and duplicate.

DD_15: Reduce 30.49% width, 30.51% height. Place on the left of your canvas to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

DD_31: Reduce 49.19% width, 49.08% height. Place on the right side of your canvas to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

DD_22: Reduce 53.11% width, place on the left side of your canvas to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

DD_11: Reduce to your liking and place on the table. Add a drop shadow.

DD_13: Reduce to your liking and place next to the watermelon. Add a drop shadow.

DD_12: Reduce to your liking and place in front of DD_13. Add a drop shadow.

DD_68: Reduce 18.28% width, 18.17% height. Place in front of the table to your liking, add a drop shadow.

DD_28: Reduce 42.86% width, 42.98% height. Place on the right side of the hot tub. I have mine looking like it’s floating in the air, the next element you add will cover that blank space. Add a drop shadow.

DD_40: Reduce 23.09% width, 23.00% height. Place in front of element DD_28 to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

DD_85: Reduce 10.48% width, 10.00 height. Rotate -8.85. Place near the pink bag or to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

DD_86: Reduce 49.16% width, 49.01% height. Place at the top of your canvas towards the right side.

DD_100: Reduce 35.85% width, 35.75% height. Place at the lower left corner of your canvas. Open your Blending Options:
Drop Shadow at default
Stroke: size 1, color 000000.
Inner Glow at default settings.

Open your tube, resize and position to your liking. Add a drop shadow.

Type the name. Color is 205397. Size 36 points.
Open your Blending Options.
Drop Shadow using the default settings.
Inner Shadow using the default settings.
Stroke size 1 Color is d2d6da. Place the name on the top center of your canvas.

Add your license and your watermark. Delete the white background if you used one, save as .png and you are done.

I hope this tutorial was easy to follow. Again, you do not have to follow this step by step. Add your own touch to it.
