PTU: Golden Siren

This tutorial was written by me on May 28, 2016. The results are of my own imagination.  Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.  

Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own.

This was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

Please keep in mind that I write the tutorial as I am creating it.

Sometimes I may not explain properly where to place things so please see my example if you are ever in doubt :)

Supplies needed

I am using PSP X8 but this tutorial should work with any version.

PTU Tube:  I am using a gorgeous tube called Mermaid 3 created by VeryMany.  Please do not use these tubes without a proper licence.   You can purchase VeryMany's tubes here.  

PTU Kit:  I am using a matching scrap kit called Tropical Siren by Pink Paradox Productions.  You can purchase this gorgeous kit here

Mask:  WSL Mask 241 created by WeeScotsLass Creations.  You can download it from her blog here.

Font of choice

I am using a drop shadow (D/S) of V/H 2, Opacity 50, blur 5, color black throughout the tutorial unless otherwise stated.

Let's get started.

Open a new 650x650 transparent image.

Copy your main tube and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, adjust sharpness, sharpen and D/S.

Open frame 20, copy and close the original.   Select raster 2 and paste.  Resize 50%.

Move your tube down slightly.

Using your magic wand, click inside the frame.  (settings are Mode, add shift, Match mode, RGB Value, Tolerance and Feather set to 0, Contiguous and Anti-alias checked).  Selections, modify, expand by 5.

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 16, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and add a new raster layer.  Standing on the new layer, edit, paste into selections.  Deselect.  D/S the frame.

Open element 97, copy and close the original.  Select the paper layer and paste.  Resize 20% and move to the lower right side.  Change the blend mode to luminance legacy.

Open element 12, copy and close the original.  Select the ship layer and paste.  Resize 20% and move to the upper left corner so the tail is just touching the frame.  D/S.

Open element 11, copy and close the original.  Select the ship layer and paste.  Resize 20% and move in front of the ship.  D/S and change the blend mode to luminance legacy.

Open element 25, copy and close the original.  Select the paper layer and paste.  Resize 20% and move in front of the ship.  D/S and change the blend mode to luminance legacy.  Move to the lower left side by the frame.

Open element 116, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and paste.  Resize 60% and move to the bottom center.  Duplicate and move up slightly.  Move this layer under the original sand layer.

Open element 155, copy and close the original.  Select the paper layer, select all, float, defloat,  Add a new raster layer and move this layer just under the frame.  With the new layer selected, edit, paste into selections.  Select none.

Open element 21, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 35% and move to the bottom left side of the frame.  D/S

Open element 63, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 35% and move to the bottom right of the frame.   D/S

Open element 68, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 35% and move to the bottom right so it is under the anchor.  D/S

Open element 20, copy and close the original.  Select the bird layer and paste.  Resize 25% and move to the bottom left so he is just behind the tail. D/S  Now I want part of the frog over the tail of the mermaid.  Using your select tool set to rectangle, make a selection like the screen shot below.  


Promote selection to layer,  select the frog layer again and hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none.  Move the promoted layer above the tube layer.

Open element 102, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 25% and move down to the bottom center of the frame and over to the right slightly.  D/S

Open element 103, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and paste.  Resize 60% and mirror.  Move to the bottom of the frame so it is just under the sand.  Duplicate, image, mirror and move up so it is peeking out from the top.  Move this layer under the first rock layer.

Open element 109, copy and close the original.  Select the top rock layer that is peeking out from behind the frame.  Paste as a new layer and resize 70%, image, mirror and move to the left so you see it peeking out on the bottom left.  Duplicate and mirror.
Don't worry about the netting not lining up at the top.  We will fix that soon :).

Open element 139, copy and close the original.  Select the top netting layer and paste.  Resize 30% and move to the upper left so it is just covering the top of the net.  Duplicate and mirror.  Duplicate this layer and move the layer just above the frame layer.  Move to the bottom right of the frame.  D/S, duplicate and mirror.

Open element 138, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 30% and move to the bottom so it is in between the rock layer and other leaf.  D/S, duplicate and mirror.

Open element 119, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 70% and mirror.  Move to the far right side of the frame.

Open element 131, copy and close the original.  Select the top leaf layer that is under the frame.  Paste and resize 30% and move to the top slightly to the right.  Duplicate and mirror.  Resize this layer 70% and move to the top left beside the other flower.

Now we want to make a cluster out of the flowers we just added.  Select the top flower cluster and merge down.  Repeat the merge down 3x to you have the 2 flower layers and 2 leaf layers in one :).  Duplicate, image free rotate to the left 20 degrees, all layers not checked.  Move down to the left side of the frame.  Use you deform tool to move in slightly to the right.  Move out again to the left a bit.  Duplicate and mirror.  Move both cluster layers under the original cluster layer.

Open element 51, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 25% and move to the bottom right so it is in front of the mermaid's knee.  D/S

Add any other elements you like.

Hide raster 1 and merge visible.  Unhide raster 1.  Select your top layer and resize 90% all layers not checked.

Adjust, sharpen, unsharpen mask, radius 5, strength 10 and clipping 5, Luminance only unchecked. click ok

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 36, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and paste.  Apply WSL mask 241 and merge group.
