Life's A Beach Tutorial

**As with a lot of my tutorials, I use free scrap kits from a lot of different scrap kit makers.
I do include the link to the site/page those scrap kits can be obtained from, but sometimes
those scrap kits become no longer available or the site closes. When this happens, I do endeavor
to add a new link, but if I don't, please use another scrap kit of your choice that is almost
the same as the one that I used in my tutorials. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.**

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Keith Garvey's lovely ladies.
You need to be a registered member of MyPSPTubes
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrap kit called 'Okuma Sand' from CupcakeSprinkles
Font I used is called 'Summertime'
No outside Plugin Filters used with this tutorial

New white canvas 750x700

Copy & paste JournelFrame-1 from scrap kit as anew layer. Resize 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Magic Wand, click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 4.

Copy & paste a paper from the scrap kit as a new layer - I resized my paper by 55%-all layers unchecked,
but thast choice is yours.
Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Move the paper layer below frame layer.

Make top layer active - copy & paste BlingFlipFlops as a new layer.
Copy & paste FeltSun from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 50% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Give this drop shadow.

Finally - copy & paste one of the Wordart from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 70% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Add your name & correct copyright. Crop Tool, crop excess white background. Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white)
MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Click COPY on blue top bar & paste as a new image on your workspace. Your image should
now have a transparent background.Resize 87% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png.
