Back 2 School

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  Keith Garvey which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  PTU kit, Back to School  - Pink by Designs by Sarah  

Font of choice, I am using  C.A. Gatintas

Plugins: Alien Skin 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!

 Open a new canvas 1000 x 850 with a white background

Open board 1, copy and paste as a new layer move up a little on your canvas

Open desk, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 70% arrange on the right.

Open your tube copy and paste as a new layer, arrange. 
Open paper 4, copy and paste as a new layer, drag it over so its edges line up at the top and left, duplicate
and drag it over so that it lines up with the far right edge of the paper on the left, merge them together,
duplicate and drag it down so that it lines up on the bottom.
Now apply your mask.
You can just enlarge it if you want, I just didn't want the pattern in the paper to be so big.

Add the following elements, see my tag for exact placement
Books 1  resize 35%
backpack resize 35%
notebook, resize 20%
calculator resize 20%
stapler, resize 20%
ruler, resize 40%
Pen resize 20%

word arts 1, 2, & 3 resize each by 50%
add a gradient glow with a width of 6 and make the glow pink & white
