Elements Used:

Lets Begin :

Open a new 800 X 650 white canvas. (Don't worry we will crop it later.)
Open your Palm Tree element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now re-size it to 50%.
Position it to the left side of your canvas.

Go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Xero - then Radiance.
You can use my settings below or your own.


 Click Ok.

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow.


Click Ok.

Now open your Ocean element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 90%. 
Use your move tool to position it so that the left edge is hidden behind your Palm Tree element. 
Go to Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen.
Apply the same drop shadow you used above.

Open your Sand element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Position it in front of your ocean element. 
Go to your layers pallet - right click on your Sand layer - then click Duplicate. Use your move tool to position your duplicated Sand layer to your liking.
Now duplicate your Sand layer one more time & position where it is needed.

Once you have all your Sand elements where you need them, go to your layers pallet - right click on your top sand layer - then click Merge - Merge Down. Then on your next Sand layer - right click - Merge - Merge Down.
Now all of your Sand layers should be 1 layer.
Go to Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise
Set to Unifrom ,  20 & make sure your Monochrome box is checked & click Ok.

Open your Towel 2 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Use your move tool to position your Towel2 element in front of your Tree element.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen.

Now open medi_tiger lily 4 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 30%. Position it on your Towel element -

Open your Drink element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 15%. Using your move tool, position your Drink element so that it is on your Towel element.
Now apply a slight drop shadow.
Open your Starfish2 - Copy & paste it as a new layer - then re-size it to 15%. Position it on your Sand element to your liking.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Apply a drop shadow.
Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Starfish2 layer - then click Duplicate. Now use your move tool to position your duplicated Starfish2 element to your liking.

In your layers pallet - click on your very last layer -
Open Paper 5 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 80%. 
Go to Layers - click Load/Save Mask - then click Load Mask From Disk.
Now choose the mask you would like to use, then click Load.

Now re-size your Mask to 75%. Position it to the left of your canvas.
Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Mask layer then click Duplicate. Go to Image - click Mirror.
Use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated Mask layer if needed.

Activate your Text tool - set your Font, Size & Color -
I used :
Font : Sweetheart Script Limited
Size : 200 Pixels (Will depend on the length of your name)
Background Color : #e15b01
Foreground Color : set to nul

Now click on your canvas to open your text box, type out the name you want on your sig then click Apply.

Now position your name center with your Ocean & Sand elements.

Go to your layers pallet - move your Name layer down below your Towel2 & Lily4 layers.

Now leave your name layer alone for a bit. We will come back to it.
Open your medi_lily 8 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 40%. Position it so that it is at the right end of your name.
Effects - Plugins - Xero - Radiance.
(Use the same settings you used above)
Apply a drop shadow.

Open your Lei element - copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then - re-size it to 20%. Position it on a letter in your name.
Go to your layers pallet - right click on your Lei layer - then click Duplicate. Now still in your layers pallet - move your duplicated Lei layer below your Name layer.
Now click on your top Lei layer -
Activate your Eraser Tool - now erase parts of the Lei so that it appears to be hanging over the letter.
In your Layers pallet - click on your Duplicated Lei layer - apply a drop shadow.

Now add any copyright/credit information.
Most times I apply a gradient glow to my copyright/credit information so that it stands out a bit more. If you would like to do that as well, go to Effects - click Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow.
You can use my settings below or your own.-



Now you might want to save your tag as a PSP file if you intend on making it for friends/family as well at a later time.

To Animated :

Open your Animation Shop -
Go back to your PSP -
In your layers pallet - right click on your Name Layer -
Then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then Gradient Glow.
You can use my settings below or your own -


Click Ok.
Now apply a drop shadow to your name .

Activate your Magic Wand tool -
Then make sure that you are on your Name layer in your layers pallet.
Now click inside each letter of your name until ALL letters have the "marching ants" around them. Depending on the font that you have used you may not have to click inside each letter. Some script fonts when they connect and you click on letter it will select them all. Also if you have an "i" in your name, make sure you also select the dot above your i. :-)

Once all letters are selected go -
Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass
You can use my settings below or your own -
Click Ok.
Keep your letters selected -
Now 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.

Selections - Select None.

Edit - Copy Special - Copy Merged
Now go to Animation Shop -
Right click inside Frame 1 that you just put there.
Click Paste - then click After Current Frame.

Go back to your PSP -
Click your undo button 2 times -

This time change your settings to 40 then click Ok.
Selections - Select None.

Go to Edit - Copy Special - Copy Merged -

Go to Animation Shop -
Right click inside of Frame 2 - then click Paste - then click After Current Frame.

You should now have 3 animation frames.

Now view your animation to make sure you are happy with it.
Then activate your crop tool in your Animation Shop -
Crop off any canvas that you did not use. Once you have your crop outlined, then double click inside of your cropped box. That will make your crop activate.

Now if you need to re-size your sig you can do that now.
(For new to animation shop tut followers - to re-size in Animation Shop - On your keyboard, press your Shift & S keys , that will open your re-size menu. Then set it to pixels then the size you need. I re-sized mine to 650 pixels, but if you need it a different size just type in the size that you need. :-)

Then all that is left is for you to save your signature as a GIF file & you have completed this tutorial!!♥
