Underwater Queen

Underwater Queen
written 5/24/2013

Supplies:

Tube of your choice. I am using a tube by Mariya Nikiforova. I purchased this tube when she was at CILM however I am not sure where to get her images now.

Scrap kit is a kit by MizTeeque called Aqua. You can purchase it at http://mizteeques.blogspot.com/

Mask of your choice. I am using one by Insatiable Dreams. You can get her great masks athttp://insatiabledreams.net/

Font of your choice.

Animation is by Simone. It is called Aquarium. You can get her awesome animations athttp://psptutorialsbysimone.blogspot.com/

Lets Begin.

Open a new canvas that will give you plenty of room to work with.
I use 900x900 but I have a large monitor and also like tons of room to work with.
You can crop and resize at the end.
Open paper 15 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Apply the mask of your choice.
Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and position in the middle near the bottom of your mask area.
Open element 26 and copy and paste as a new layer along the bottom in front of your tube.
Open element 19 and resize appropriately and copy and paste as a new layer.
Place on the bottom left.
Open element 12 and resize by 50% 2x.
Copy and paste as a new layer and move to the bottom right of the jars.
Duplicate and image flip horizontal and move to the left of the jars.
Open element 2 and resize by 50% and copy and paste as a new layer.
Place in the middle of the jars between to the 2 flowers.
Open element 22 and resize by 30%.
Copy and paste as a new layer and move to the top left.
Duplicate and move this one to the right
I then duplicated a few times and resized them so I had a few different sizes and placed all along the top to look like a string of lights.
Duplicate your bow that is at the bottom near the jars and resize by 75%.
Place at the top of one of the lights.
Keep duplicating and moving each one to the top of the lights until you have all of the lights finished off.
Add your name and copyright information.
Crop.
Now since I am going to animate I like to add a white background to help with the pixelization that animation shop does to tubes.
Edit copy merged and open animation shop and paste as a new animation.
Open your animation and resize by 50%.
Take note of the amount of frames it has. The one I am using has 20 frames.
Duplicate your tag to have the same number of frames.
Edit select all frames on both the animation and your tag.
Now you are going to click and drag from the first frame of your animation to the first frame of your tag.
Place where you want. On my tag I wanted it to look like it was coming out of the vase she is holding.
Do not let go until you have it in position but if you do or it doesnt look right you can always undo and try again until you get it right.
View your animated tag. If you are happy you can resize and save at this point.
