Time to Relax FTU

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.

:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Sqirlz Water Reflection found here
FTU Scrap kit Summer Feeling by Nette's Night Owl Works found here
Mask of choice I am using Mask WSL-364 found here
Tube of choice I am using the tube element found in the kit
Font used is A&S Jiggy Roman
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15 

Let's Begin!
 
Okay so open up a new image in PSP. I like to use a tagger size of 460x460. You can do any size you'd like. Flood fill white
 
Open up the rope frame and right click, copy and right click paste as new layer. Then resize to any size you like using the pick tool. Using your magic wand click inside the frame then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8, then open up the Sea pic that is supplied in the kit, right click copy, then right click paste as new layer, and put it under the frame, then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard, then Deselect. Your paper should now be inside the frame.
 
Okay so now open up the rock stack and using your free hand selection tool, on the free hand setting, circle around the 3 bottom rocks then right click copy, then right click paste as new layer, you may have to delete a part of the top rocks that got cut off. Position rocks like mine above. Then open the tube element supplied in the kit or any other tube you choose, and right click, copy and right click paste as new layer. Place her on top of the rocks, see my example above. 
 
Then add any other elements you want making sure you copy and paste each as a new layer. 
 
Open up paper 7 and right click copy and right click paste as new layer. Then add your mask, invert your mask.
Add your name and copyright info!
 
Follow below to the rest of the tut if you want to animate. 
 
:Sqirlz Water Reflection:
Back in PSP Merge flatten and Save as a png. Then
open up the Sqirlz program and then open up the tag in the program. Then go to Outline-Begin. Now using your mouse outline the water part of the pic like this, (right click mouse when you are done outlining)
Now click on Customize Basic Ripples and have your setting like this 
Run Basic Ripples Only, to see the Animation, (where the Yellow arrow is above.) If you are satisfied then click the GIF button above and save it. 
Thanks for doing my tut!
