New tutorial PTU Penny by the Sea

Published by:

CT for Digi Divas – Penelope by the Sea

Tutorial featuring the art of © Alehandra Vanhek – Penelope.
Scrap kit designed by Heather’s Divine Dezignz: By the Sea
Both are available at Digi Divas.

Tube Available here.

This tube has 3 different hat colors and 5 different bikini colors. A perfect tube for your end of summer tags and projects.
Scrap Kit Available Here.
This beautiful and realistic beach scrap kit has 114 individual elements for all your tagging needs. It also comes with 15 individual papers. This kit is tagger sized and for personal use only.

Legend

C/P = Copy Paste / D/S = Drop Shadow default settings: 3 -3 58 7.92
bg: background, / S/F/D: Select All, Float, Defloat / E or el: Element
R: Resize / Unsharp mask Settings: 3 30 3 (Use after resizing if the image looks grainy or blurry )

I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.

This tutorial was written by me on 08/23/2016 and is purely of my own making.
If there is any resemblance to any other tut it is purely coincidental. Please do not claim as your own.

Please refer to my TOU on the left sidebar.
