Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice (close-up and full), I am using Elias Chatzoudis found at PTE
Scrap kit Some Beach by Melissaz Creationz or 4Shared Link
Please visit Melissa's site, its well worth it, the 4shared link is only posted in case you can't find the kit on her site.
Mask of choice

So looking forward to summer and the beach!

Open a new image 600 x 250 with a  white background.

Select the white background, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Add a new layer above the white background, right click and paste into selection.

Open the close-up tube, paste as a new layer. Resize if needed. Place on the left hand side. Apply a drop shadow. Change the Blend Mode to Overlay.

Select the white background, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Open the sand background paper, right click and paste into selection. Apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group. Apply a small drop shadow.

Copy and paste the netting (raster 27) as a new layer. Place on the right hand side. Apply a drop shadow.

Copy and paste the rope with the shells (raster 31) as a new layer. Place to your liking, apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror. Reposition to your liking.

Copy and paste Some Beach word art (raster 22) as a new layer. Place on the left hand side. Recolor to match the tube. To do this I selected the word art, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Add a new layer above the word art. Flood fill with the color or gradient you would like to use. Go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Change the Blend Mode to Color.

Copy and paste the full tube as a new layer. Place on the right hand side. Resize if needed, apply a drop shadow.

To add a frame select a color or gradient.

Select the white background layer, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Go to Modify - Select Selections Borders and set at 5. Select None. Make sure this layer is at the top.

Repeat the above steps for the thin white frame layer only this time change the border setting to 7 and fill with white. Place this layer below the colored one.

Add any copyright and your name.

Save as a PNG.

Thank you for trying one of my tutorials. I hope you have enjoyed using it enough to come back for more! I would love to see what you have created!!

* To make the avatar open a new image 150 x 150. Close the layers from the full tube up. Copy merged, and paste as a new layer above the white background. Place to your liking, copy the tube and resize. Add copyrights and your name. Make a frame the same as you did for the signature. Pretty easy huh!?! ALL FINISHED!
