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 your template, shift +D to duplicate it and close the original.
Image, canvas size, change to 850 x 850 just to give yourself some extra space to work, and we'll crop it down at the end.
Delete the credits layer, unhide the white background layer to make it easier to see what you're doing.
Make the glitter oval layer active, selections, select all, float, selections, invert.
Open paper 9, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard,
deselect and delete the original layer.
Make the oval layer active, click inside it with your magic wand. Open paper 4,
copy and paste as a new layer, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard, deselect,
delete the original layer.
Fill the other layers doing the same as above.
When you do the circle layers, leave selected after filling with paper, and copy and paste a tube into the circle.
Play around with the opacity settings til you get something you like. I changed mine to Luminance(L) and lowered the opacity to about 80
