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 Roman Zaric which you need a license to use.
At the time of this tut this tube and scrap kit were not yet in the store, but coming soon to the store.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the PTU scrap kit by Irish Princess Designs, which matches the tube, which is also coming soon,
and will be out in the store at the same time the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Marguerite. I used white for the background #e4c7cb for the foreground and
set the stroke at 3. Then I added a fat gradient glow of 3 and set at white
Plugins: Alien Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
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!

click inside it with your magic wand, selections, modify by 2,
selections, invert, open paper 8, arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard

click around the edge of what would be where the mirror and frame come together.
Once you get back to the beginning point, double click.
