Spring Ocean


This tutorial was written by Jenny on 5/24/15. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the licensed artwork of Jennifer L. Nilsson. You need a license to use her artwork. You can find her tubes at The Doodle Garden HERE.

Snags available HERE

Supplies Needed:
1 tube of choice
Scrapkit of choice (I'm using FTU Splash by Tasha's Playground)
Font of choice (I'm using Nordica)
Mask of choice (I'm so sorry but I can not remember which one I'm using. If you recognize it please let me know and I'll gladly give credit)

This tut, as all of my tuts, is to be used as a guide. You can use any kit you'd like. It doesn't have to be this exact one. If you have this kit then great. If not...no big deal...use something else. Be creative!


Open a new canvas 600 x 600 and flood fill white.
New raster layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste paper of choice into selection, select none, apply mask.


Add porthole and move upward to the left. Add your image or tube, resize if needed, place below porthole, use selection tool to select around the porthole, selections, invert, delete on tube or image layer, select none, merge porthole down with tube/image.

Copy & paste seaweed as a new layer, see my tag for placement.

Add the wave, mirror it, place to the right, resize if needed.

Add tube, resize if needed, place to the right.

Now you can add the shell, flowers, etc. and place to your liking. Resize if needed.

Add a drop shadow to each layer.


Now it's time to merge all layers, crop down your tag, resize if needed.


Add copyright/licensing info and text and you're ready to save.
Be sure to save a blank for future use.


If you'd like to save as a transparent PNG layer be sure to hide the white background layer first.
I hope you've enjoyed my new tutorial. Please show your appreciation by leaving some love in my C-Box and/or voting for me at 1Award (link to the right). I'd love to see your results.
