Mermaid Frolic


Mermaid Frolic
This tutorial was written by Jenny on 6-10-2010. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Terry Heuser. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through MyTagArt.
Please check her site for new licensing information.

Supplies Needed:
1 tube of choice

4 photos of choice
(I'm using my own photography which was previously licensed through MyTagArt. If you're interested in licensing my photography for your sig tag use please contact me at the email address off to the side)

Scrapkit of choice
(I'm using Beri Bug Frolic by Gemini Creationz licensed through MyTagArt)

Template 189 by Designs by Ali

Font of choice (I'm using my favorite- Luna Bar)

Adorn the tag with flowers, ribbons, sparkles of choice, place to your liking, add drop shadows if needed.

Copy & Paste tube of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking, add drop shadow, place to your desire.

Now is time to slightly crop the image so that nothing extra from your mask layer is poking out.

Resize canvas if you'd like. Add copyright info and text and you're now ready to save.
