Candy Dreams

For this tutorial you will need the following:
Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.
Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac, which you need a license to use. You can get it at his store, here.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Sugar on Top by Jen's Sweet Temptations
Font of choice, I am using Saliere
Plugins: no outside plugins
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 700 x 700 white. This will give us extra room to work, and we can crop and resize at the end.
Open film 4, copy and paste as a new layer.
Open film 1, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange over bottom of film 4.
Take your freehand selection tool set on point to point and add (Shift). Click around the edges of the center squares on film 4.
Open paper 4, copy and paste between film 4 and the white background layer, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard.
Leave selected.
Open your tube, copy and paste above the paper you just put in the frame. Arrange the tube, then click delete on your keyboard.
Do this with your tube 3 times, to fill all 3 squares in the film 4, mirroring the tube sometimes to have it going different directions. Deselect & erase the bits that show from one film square into another. Merge each tube together.
Duplicate your tube layer, on the top layer, adjust blue, gaussian by 3. change blend mode to soft light. On the original layer, change the hue and saturation both to 0.
Add a drop shadow to to the filmstrip layer.
Do the same thing with the paper (I'm using paper 10 for this one) and tube in the small film 1 element.
Copy and paste your main tube, drag it so it is just above the larger filmstrip. Arrange it how you want, add drop shadow, if any of it is peeking below the thin filmstrip, erase it.
Doodle 1, copy and paste arrange at top left, duplicate, image flip, duplicate, image mirror, duplicate, image flip.
Add your elements.
