Sea Dock Fun (Animated) Tut


To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop.

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the awesome work of Elias Chatzoudis. If you wish to use his work you must have a license to use his work before using his tubes.
To purchase his tubes and receive a license go to HERE.
The adorbale kit I used is "Aqua" by Captivated Visions and it can be found HERE.

Supplies: HERE
Font: Orlando
Mask #36 by BabesDesigz: HERE

I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.

1 Open a new canvas 700x700.
2 Open, copy and paste as a new layers all elements you desire to use.
I used: CVisions_Aqua_Anchor, CVisions_Aqua_Beachdock, CVisions_Aqua_Bubbles, CVisions_Aqua_Butterfly,
CVisions_Aqua_ButtonAqua, CVisions_Aqua_ButtonAqua2, CVisions_Aqua_Cloud, CVisions_Aqua_Flower3,
CVisions_Aqua_Jar, CVisions_Aqua_Rainbow, CVisions_Aqua_RayofLight, CVisions_Aqua_Seagull,
CVisions_Aqua_SequinString2, CVisions_Aqua_Shell2, CVisions_Aqua_Shell3, CVisions_Aqua_Sun,
3 Resize and position where desired.Use my example for reference.
4 Now open, copy and paste as a new layer your choice of paper. Resize.
I used: CVisions_Aqua_PaperPatterned4.
5 Move this below the frame layer.
6 Get your eraser tool. Erase any of the paper sticking out of the frame. It doesn't need to be perfect.
7 Open, copy and paste as a new layer your choice of tube.
8 Resize and position in the middle of the frame. Use my example as a reference.
9 Duplicate your tube and move it below the frame layer. (You should have a tube above the frame and a tube below the frame.
10 Get your eraser tool again and erase any of each tube that is sticking out of the frame except for the head.
11 Open the mask and minimize it.
12 Open, copy and paste your choice of paper.
I used: CVisions_Aqua_PapeAqua2
13 Go to Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image.
14 In the drop down window for Source select BabesDesignz_Mask36.
15 Make sure both Source luminance and Invert mask data are selected and hit ok.
16 Go to Layers>Merge>Merge Group.
17 Resize the mask layer to be much bigger.
18 Get your text tool and font choice and type out you name.
I used colors: foreground- #ff626d
background- #209f14
I used a gradient glow- width 5 and color white on the wordart.
19 With your text tool still open type out your desired text.
I used colors: foreground- #719884
background- #e2c04f
I used font size 36.
20 Add copyrights.
21 If you are not doing the animation, open the water I supplied and move this below the Beachdock layer.
Resize and save as a png.

If you are doing the animation, follow these steps:

22 Go to your first layer and get the paint bucket tool. Flood fill white.
23 Now I need you to hide all layers except for the first 2- white background and mask layer.
24 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop.
25 Paste as a new animation and duplicate once. This should give you 2 frames.
26 Open the water animation supplied and select all. Copy.
27 Now go back to your new animation and Right-click.
28 Select Paste into selected frame.
29 Position the water at the bottom of the frame.
30 Now close the supplied animated water.
31 Back in PSP, hide the white background and mask layer.
32 Unhide all the other layers that were hidden.
33 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop.
34 Paste as a new animation and duplicate once. This will give you 2 frames.
35 Select all and copy.
36 Now go to your other animation and right-click. Select paste into selected frame.
37 Line it up so it looks as it did in PSP.
38 Once you are completely satisfied with the positioning select all.
39 Go to Animation>Frame Properties and change it to 75.
40 Resize and save as a gif.

You are all done!
