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, close the original
Delete raster 1 & 7 layers
change the canvas size to about 800 x 800 pixels
Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette.
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer,
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer
I used the following papers to fill each layer:
Layer 5, paper 12
Layer 4, paper 5
Layer 3, paper 15
Layer 2, paper 3
Layer 1, paper 13
Layer 6, paper 7
On layer 6 after filling with paper, leave selected, selections, modify, expand 2 add a new layer, flood fill with a color from your kit or tube, expand 2 more, add another layer, flood fill with white.
Make the top circle layer active, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 60%
take the eraser tool and erase the bits that hang out where you don't want them
Add the following elements checking my tag for reference
Element 2, resize 75%
Element 7, resize 80%, duplicate, resize 85% colorize by changing Hue to 127 and Saturation to 110

I erased a few of the yellow stars from element 34 that looked too far away from the rest of the elements.
