Let's get going!
Start with a blank canvas, size 650x650.
Move your tube on to the canvas. Resize her so she's not too big. Add a drop shadow.
Place the fence behind her. Resize so it's not too large. Add a drop shadow and duplicate then move to the right side of her.
Now place the LifePreserver on top of the fence, but behind the tube. Make the LifePreserver taller than your tube and add a drop shadow.
Take Paper13 and place it behind the the LifePreserver. Resize a little so you can still see the sky and the ocean. Erase any parts of the paper outside the LifePreserver.
Move the Banner on top of the Fence. Just a little of the Banner will stick outside the LifePreserver on both sides. You'll need to resize the banner and then duplicate so it's on both sides. Add a drop shadow.
Take Flower3 and place it in front of the Fence on the right side. Resize so it's an appropriate flower size. The place Flower4 on the left side of the blue Flower, make it the same size and add a drop shadow. Link the flowers together and duplicate the flowers until it covers the bottom of the fence length wise.
Place Bag2 and move it in front of the flowers on the left side. Resize and add a drop shadow.
Move the Glasses in front of the Bag2. Resize and and add a drop shadow.
Place the Towels behind the Bag2 and glasses and the LifePreserver. Add a drop shadow.
Move the Starfish on the right side. Lay it on the sand in front of the flowers. Resize and add a drop shadow.
Move the Sign2 on the right side. Resize and place it behind the flowers and life preserver. Add a drop shadow.
Take Fern1 and place it in front of the fence and behind everything else. Resize so it's smaller and move it on the right side. Place it directly behind the fence. Duplicate the fern and move it to the right side in roughly the same position.
Now take the Grass and place behind the fence. Resize so the grass so it's about as tall as the middle of the fence. Add a drop shadow and duplicate about three more times and fill empty spaces behind the fence.
Move the SurfBoard behind the fence and grass on the right side. Resize and rotate a little to the left. Add a drop shadow.
Now place the sand under everything and have the tube sit on the sand so it will stick out a little. Resize it so you will need to duplicate it again and move to the other side.
Open PalmTree1 and move behind everything. Resize it and flip horizontally. Just have the top part of the palm tree stick out the top of the LifePreserver. Duplicate the tree and flip horizontally and move to the opposite side. Add a drop shadow to both.
Open your mask, a new blank canvas, size 600x600. Move the mask on to the blank canvas. Open another blank cavas, size 600x600. Add a new layer and fill with color, #ffffac, to make the "sun". Now merge the layers together and add the yellow behind the mask. Remove the background and place behind everything. Resize so nothing of the mask sticks outside the canvas.
Crop off any extras and be careful not to cut off any parts of the tag. Unclick the white background.
For the name, again the font is Jenna Sue. The color of the name is #34b5e4. Add a stroke, size 4 in the color #ffffae. To make the heart use shift and ^ key. Add a drop shadow.
Add your tagger mark and copyright information where it's visible and on the tag so it cannot be easily erased.
