BeachBall
Wordart 2
Towel
Cloud
Bee
Waves
Palm Tree
Sand
Flower 1 & 3
Sun

Lets Begin :

Start by opening a new 800 X 650 White canvas (I chose white for this tag because we are going to animated & sometimes animation shop does not like when you apply a drop shadow & it gives it an additional glow. So if you use a white background it fixes that issue.) . (Don't worry we will crop it later)
Now open your Wave element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 85%.
To open your re-size menu quickly press your Shift & S key & your re-size menu will open :-)

Using your move tool position your wave element to the center of your canvas.
Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.
Go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow from the slide out menu.
Set your settings : (You can use mine below or your own, the choice is always yours)
Click Ok.

Now go to your layers pallet, right click on your Wave layer. Then click Duplicate, then right click on your duplicated wave layer & click Duplicate again.
Now you should have 3 wave layers. Please label them starting from the bottom one Wave 1, Wave 2 & Wave 3. You will want them labeled for when we get to the animation part.
Once you have your wave layers numbered , close off your Wave 2 & Wave 3 layers. (Click the eye on the left next to each layer)
Now click on your Wave 1 layer, go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise then click Add Noise, set to Uniform, 30 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked. Then click Ok.

Now back to your layers pallet,click on your Wave 2 layer then  unhide your Wave 2 layer & hide your Wave 1 layer, now still on your Wave 2 layer go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise, set to Uniform, 35 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked, then click ok.

Now back to your layers pallet, click on your Wave 3 layer & unhide it, then hide your Wave 2 layer. (Remember to hide & unhide you just click the eye next to each layer) Now go to Adjust, Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise, set to Uniform 40 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked. Then click Ok.

Now that all 3 of our wave layers are now glittered, hide your wave 3 layer & then unhide your wave 1 layer. That way when it comes time to animated you are all set to go :-)

Now click on the top layer in your layers pallet. 

Open your Sand element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 65%.

You can also crop your tag as this point to get rid of any access canvas that you did not use.

To Animate :

(Open your Animation Shop)
(Go back to psp)

In your layers pallet, click on your Wave 1 layer, (Your wave 2 & 3 layers should already be hidden)
Go to Edit, click Copy Special then click Copy Merged from slide out menu.

Go to Animation Shop  - Right click on the grey canvas area & click Paste As New Animation.

Go back to your PSP, hide your Waves 1 layer & click on & unhide your waves 2 layer, go to Edit, click Copy Special then click Copy Merged.

Go to Animation Shop - Right click in the first frame you just put there & click Paste, then from the slide out menu click After Current Frame.

Go back to PSP, 
Hide wave layer 2, & unhide & click on your Wave 3 layer. Go to Edit, click Copy Special then click Copy Merged.

Go to Animation Shop - Right click in your 2nd frame then click Paste - Then click After Current Frame.

Now you should have 3 frames in your animation shop.

Now you will want to view your animation to make sure it is how you like it :


If you are happy you will click that same button again to hide your animation window.
Then you will only see your 3 frames of your original tag.

Now you might want to re-size your tag depending on where you will be using it.
Again to open your Re-size menu just press your Shift & S key and your re-size menu will open.

Set your size to your liking , mine is just an example of the re-size window in animation shop as it is a tad different than psp. I set my size to 650 pixels as I am using mine on my blog. 


Now all that is left is for you to save your animated tag.
Go to File, click Save As, then find where you would like to save your tag & click Save. :-)
