Trouble Maker

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 Ismael Rac, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Be Funky by Bookworm Dezines
available at Scrap Candy 

Font of choice, I am using Holitter Halfimp

Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (optional for word art)

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 and close the original
Delete the Raster 1 layer
Change the canvas size to 850 x 850 pixels
(image, canvas size, and type in the numbers, click ok)

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

Some layers, like the frames, you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

layer 1 flood fill with #24893d
layer 2 flood fill with #24893d
layer 3 use paper 5
layer 4 use paper 7
 layer 5 use paper 7
layer 6 use paper 6
layer 7 use paper 6
layer 8 flood fill with #ed7b9d
layer 9 leave as is other than a white gradient glow width 3
layer 10 leave as is

open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 40% arrange near middle below word art layer

Now we'll add our elements, if you want, you can check my tag for exact placement
