Weekly Freebie Spotlight: Mike’s Tiki Bar

Mike’s Tiki Bar, RDNA

Creator: Traveler

Download: Mike’s Tiki Bar (no longer available, sorry)

A Favorite Because: It’s a really nice set of props with a theme that’s a little different.

What I Did With It:

The Tourists (postworked a bit)

Download: DS 3.1 + Mats for Mike’s Tiki Bar

Another version:

The Tourists, Vintage

Postwork Freebies: Folded Paper Photoshop Brushes; Vintagram 2 PS Action; Grain Natural plugin; Jane Austen font, and Eyecandy 3.1

The Eyecandy 3.1 plugin is really old, but I can still get it to work in Paint Shop Pro 7, which I keep despite having PSP X3 and PS CS2. The Eyecandy 3.1 plugin was used to make the vintage look photo frame, which I found in a long-gone tutorial.

Photo Edge Frame Instructions:

Load image
Layers –> Promote to Layer
Layers –> New Raster Layer (frame)
Selections –> Select All
Selections –> Modify –> Contract
Enter 3 and click OK
Masks –> New –> Show Selection
Selections –> Select None
Choose the Flood Fill tool; Blend Mode: Normal, Opacity 100
Choose white from the Color Options
Click to fill the new Layer 2/frame with white
You will now have an image that appears all white except for a small 3px wide edge
Masks –> Edit
Effects –> Plugin Filers –> EyeCandy 3.1 –> Jiggle
Use Brownian Motion for Movement Type, Bubble Size: 5; Warp: 4; Twist: 0
Selections –> Select All
Selections –> Modify –> Contract
Enter 15 (or your choice) and then click OK
Edit –> Clear
Leave your selection active for now
Select picture layer (Layer 1)
Selections –> Modify –> Expand
Enter 2 and then click OK
Selections –> Invert
Edit –> Clear
Selections –> Select None
Layers –> Merge –> Merge Visible

Add a background and/or other optional effects. I used 25 instead of 15 for the photo border size.
