SeaShells PTU

I wrote this Tutorial,any resemblance to others is purely a coincidence.
The lovely Mermaid is by Selena Fenech she was with CILM when I got her work and she can now be found Here and Here
This Beautiful Scrap kit is by Black Widow Creationz and can be found Here
Filters: Mura's Meister ---copies found Here 
Drop Shadow= DS=2,2,50,5 black
My Examples Here 
 At the end of this tutorial, I will show you how to animate the tag,there are examples in my supplies for the animated one as well..
Let's Start
800 X 800
1.) EL 36- Copy and Paste = C&P as New Raster Layer = NRL-- Center-- now duplicate this one, and close original
2.) MMCopies--Line-Wraparound-Normal--feedback--center
change these--Numbers--= 6
X = 52 --- Y = -36  ---- Angle =  -10 ---- Rotation =  0 -- color = A0002E
Check EX.1
3.) On Duplicate --- opacity = 50% --open original and then merge down -= MD
4.) Now we are going to change the color of our rings..Get 2 colors from your sure to write them down,easier to do this,next step...I chose a dark ( 55889E) and a light (9cc9d3) you can use any color/colors you wish...
5) Adjust-- Color Balance-- Manual Color Correction--- Source Color = A0002E (color from original circles)
Target Color (I used the light color from my tube--you can use whatever color you wish)  EX 2..
6.) C&P Tube as NRL--Resize = R-- if needed...Place her in the middle of circles--and then move her slightly over to the left--DS--Tag Reference = TR.
7.) EL 17 R = 70% -- With Lasso Tool go around the top of the sand.. EX. 3
 Copy--and paste as new image, close this one ( you might want to use the mound part later) now delete-- then C&P the sand -- EX. 4
 as NRL and place on the bottom of the canvas..move layer right above background layer and place it  like EX 5
8.) Get your color from the Sand --- C5A87F--- MMCopies--
Line==H--tile Normal- feedback center--- 116 ---  -32 --- 73  ---  15 --- / --- / ---  68 ---  38 --- 0 ---  0 --- / 91
EX. 6  (move layer above background layer )
9.) With raster Deform tool/Pick tool -- move the sand down.. EX.7
10.) PP 10 -- C&P as NRL--place below the sand layer..
11.) EL. 12 -- R = 60 %  & 80% X2-- Place on Bottom left-- DS --
Duplicate-- == Dup.--- R -- 80% place on bottom-middle...if you want more dup.-- and resize--place them around the bottom..--MD-when finished.
12.) EL 15--- R = 50% & 80% X 2-- adjust--sharpen--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL-- DS -- place it on Bottom right and then dup.-- R -- 80% and move it over..Dup.-- and place around the bottom-- MD--when done.
13.) EL 6-- R = 80% -- move to right side of tag --DS-- dup-- R = 80% mirror -- move this layer --below the sand layer mound-- dup.--R = 80%- mirror --( I did a few of them to make the underwater look)
14.) EL 14--R = 60% & 80% X4 -- unsharp mask--C&P as NRL--dup.- and close duplicate. On original use your deform tool or pick tool,and turn it down some.Then with your Lasso tool go over the end of shell-when happy delete,and place shell like its stuck in the sand.. DS-- EX. 8-- on your original--R= 80% and place it where you want, you can dup. it again,resizing as you go if you wish,and add more shells..
15.) EL 19--R= 50% & 80% X4--unsharp. mask -- C&P as NRL and place it at the bottom.. I made a few of these as well, duplicating them and resizing as I went.
16.) EL 22- R= 80% --- C&P as NRL and place on the right side of canvas--dup. R= 80%-- Mirror-- Dont Drop Shadow--
17.) EL 25--C&P as NRL and place at the very bottom of canvas.
18.) Close out Pearls,Bubbles,Seashells on top,seaweed on top,and tube--- Merge Visible all layers below tube.. then close out.. rename-- sea background
19.) open all other layers and Merge visible-- you should only have 2 layers--merged and sea background
20.) R==all layers---63%--sharpen both layers--now Add all Copy right info..and place them where you wish..if you do not want to animate--go ahead and Merge Visible all 3 layers and save as Png..
If you want to animate,continue 
Let's Animate
1.) Merge down, CR./Name layer with top layer,then close out top layer... C&P Sea background as new Animation.
2.) Effects-insert image effect--underwater--ok-- EX. 9
once done delete 1st frame..
3.) back to PSP-- close out Sea background and open top layer--C&P top layer and paste as New Animation- there are 2 ways to add your top-- you can either
A.) Click on frame 1--edit--select all- Propagate Paste--and then Paste Into Selected Frame--- this will place the top in all 24 frames-- now view and save as gif...
B.) 2ns animation-- on top layer, duplicate till you have 24 layers--
on sea animation, edit-select all- make sure all frame are blue highlighted--- then go to top frames--edit--select all--and make sure both sets are on top of each other--- EX.10
and then click on the top frames and slide them into the sea frames... EX. 11
View and Save as Gif..
