Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 650 x 650 white background.
Open frame element 8, resize by 30%, then again by 60%. Click inside each square with your magic wand and selections, modify, expand by 1.
Open paper 9, resize it to 600 x 600, copy and paste it between the background layer and frame layer, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard. Leave selected.
Open each of your tubes, copy and paste them, arrange them how you want them and delete the sections outside the frame by clicking delete on your keyboard. Deselect and erase the parts of your tubes that might be overhanging into another frame.
Hide all layers except your tubes and merge visible. Duplicate and on the duplicate layer, adjust blur, gaussian blur by 3, change the blend mode to soft light. On the bottom layer apply Xero Porcelain and change the bottom slider to 0.
Add a drop shadow to your frame and then hide the background layer and merge visible. Duplicate your frame.
On the bottom layer, adjust blur, gaussian blur by 20.
Apply Vanderlee Unplugged Spice Dots leave the settings at the original settings.
If you are going to add a full tube, open that, copy and paste, arrange where you want it and add a drop shadow, resize if necessary.
