FTU Tutorial ~ Buried Treasure

This tutorial is for someone with the basic knowledge of PSP

For this tutorial you will need the following:

I've used a PTU tube by Keith Garvey. You can purchase his art HERE
(*Note you must have a license to use his art)

Scrap Kit: Buried Treasure by Stormy @ Sinfully Creative Scraps HERE

Mask: I used mask #404 by Vix you can get it HERE

Eyecandy 4000: Gradient glow

Font Used: Rapscallioin

♥ Let's Get started! ♥

In Psp Open new layer 600x600, make sure it is on 72 DPI and trasparent is checked.
For the drop shadow on everything I am using the following settings:
Vertacle: 3, Horizontal: 3, Opacity: 70, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)

Open your scrap kit and select:
Rope frame
Paper 1 resize by 78%
Paper 4 resize by 68%
Parrot resize by 40%
Net (do not resize)
Grass (do not resize)
Fence (do not resize)
Treasure Chest (resize 78%, mirror)
Reed (resize 36%, mirror)
Bar of Gold 1 (resize 36%, mirror)
Tall grass 3 (resize 36%)
Ship 2 resize (44%)
Scrolls (resize 36%, free rotate 20%)

Copy paper 4 and add mask. Copy and paste the rope frame to the 600x600 raster layer.
Erase the end of the ropes so they do not go below the bottom.
Copy paper 1 and paste behind the rope frame. Erase
any paper that appears outside the frame. See sample for detail. Next copy and paste the fence
arrange to your liking and erase any part of the fence that appears outside the frame. Paste the
grass and adjust,erasing anything outside the frame. Copy and Paste the boat just above the fence
(see sample for example) now with your eraser,
erase some bottom edges of the boat to make it look like it is actually in the water.
Copy and paste the Reed, Move it to the far left side of the fence. Arrange to above the
frame. Copy and paste the treasure chest, move to the left side, copy and paste the gold bar
and move to in front of the treasure chest. Copy and paste the parrot. Arrange on the
left side of the frame. Copy and paste tall grass, move to the right side of the frame.
Copy and paste the net and adjust on the right side of the frame. You can keep checking the
sample for placement. Copy and paste the scrolls and place over the frame on the bottom by
the treasure chest.
Copy the tube you are using and paste it to the right side adjust to look good.
Make sure you add your drop shadow to the elements and the tube.
All you have to do is add your name. If you want your text to stand out like the one I did,
after typing out the name, Convert to a raster then click on adjust add noise, with these settings:
Uniform checked, Noise at 64%, and monochrome checked.
Now if you want to use the Gradient Glow for around the text, go to effects, plug-ins,
eyecandy, gradient glow on these settings:
Glow width 3, soft corners 25, Overall opacity 100, click on color tab, with these settings:
make the first slider black and then make a second slider with black and move it 1/4 of the way out
make a third slider and make it white. Move it to the half way point and then click ok. Add
your drop shadow and your copyright info. Click on the crop tool and crop the siggy.
Now resize it to your liking then add your copyright information if needed.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Thank you
