Resize your original tube to 50%, place on the left between the two small barrels, change the blend mode to screen, duplicate, move over to the right and place on the palm trees how you like.

Resize some of the seashells to 30 or 35% and place where you like, duplicating a couple of times.

Add any other elements you would like, make it your own.

Crop your tag to be sure no stray shadows are on the edges of your tag.
Once happy with it all, close off any backgrounds, merge visible.
Resize first, then add your copyrights and name.
That's it
