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 Danielle Gransaull which you need a license to use.  You can find her work at AIL.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Zombified, a PTU kit by Crafted by Gina, which you can find at Designer Scraps. 

Font of choice, I am using 1 Punk

Plugins: No outside plugins used.

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.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 750 x 750, white background.

Open frame 2, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 80%.
Take your selection tool set on rectangle and start in the upper left side in the black section and pull it down to the bottom right side, selections, invert.
Open paper 5, copy and paste as a new layer, between the white background and the frame. 
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected.

Open your close up tube, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange how you want it
click delete on your keyboard and deselect. Drop the opacity to around 55.

Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange on the right side.

Add your elements. I used the following:

Blood, resize 55%
Spider01, resize 40%, turn to left 90
Bats, resize 40%
Cat, resize 30%
Confetti, resize 45%, arrange on right, duplicate, 
mirror rotate left 45 arrange on bottom left

Crop, resize, add your copyright/credits as needed.
Add your name, and save!
