Ocean Dreams

Ocean Dreams


Hi all got to play again and create a new tag and tutorial. This tag is called Ocean Dreams.

For this tag you can use your own tubes or the tubes and mask I have supplied here

Supplies three tubes of choice Or Supplies I have provided

Mask I used one called ONE was sent through groups so do not know who made it

And a scrap kit I have used a beautiful scrap kit called Sagittarius by Stacey at and can be purchased at Sweet N Sassy a visit to these sites will not be a disappointment.

I have also used a plug-in called xero radiance, and  xero softmood

Font of choice, I used Ancestry SF @ size 55

Don’t forget to save often...

Open all your supplies and scrap kit

Create a new 550x350 transparent image.

Open paper 10 from the Sagittarius scrap kit and copy and paste as new layer on your transparent image.

Layer>new mask>from image from your drop down list select your mask, source luminance and invert mask data checked

Open your ocean tube copy and paste as new layer. Image>mirror and duplicate your layer

Open your lady tube copy and paste as new layer. Resize lady layer 70% adjust>sharpness>sharpen once. Move tube to the right top just above ocean waves. See my image for placement.

Move lady layer beneath your ocean layers. Add drop shadow V&H 2, Opacity 30, blur 2, colour black.

Now Use plug-in  xero radiance with the following settings: strangeness 48, charm 97, truth 224, beauty 159

Open your man tube copy and paste as new layer. Make sure it is the top layer and then resize to 70% Adjust>sharpen once. Add same drop shadow

Move your man to the bottom left so his arm and elbow just start at the rocks...See my image for placement

Now use plug-in xero softmood with the following settings: Haziness 240, glow-red 178, green 178, blue 178, lock slider checked, brightness -51, contrast -7.

Your basic tag is done we now need to put it on a background and embellish it a bit. So save now Ocean Dreams.

Open your tagger mat and duplicate and close original.

Then copy merged your basic Ocean Dreams tag and paste as new layer on your tagger mat, it will fit perfectly.

Add your favourite embellishments.

I have used tag 1 resized to 30% and free rotated left 15 degrees. Add drop shadow and move to top left. See image for placement

Heart hanger resized to 30% and placed top right. Add drop shadow

Tagger belt adjusted to fit across the bottom using pick tool. See image for placement. Add drop shadow
