Festive Winter

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  Zlata M (Festive) which you need a license to use.  
The tube I am using came from Scraps & The City, but she is no longer there, so I linked to
Pics for Design for that artist. The tube is not at PFD right now and I do not know if it will be available anywhere else. You can always substitute another tube for this tutorial.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Winter Rose  a PTU kit by Amy Marie 

Font of choice, I am using Scriptina

Plugins: Xero Porcelain
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show. 

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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

open element 2 copy and paste as a new layer 
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 10 copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard, leave selected

Open your tube, copy & paste the mirrored image as a new layer, 
arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard & deselect
duplicate the tube, on the top on, adjust, blur, gaussian 3 change the blend mode to soft light
Apply Xero Porcelain using the default settings except change the blue to zero

Copy and paste the original tube (not mirrored) resize 75% and arrange it on the right side of frame

For the elements I used:

element 12 arrange behind tube on the right
element 15 resize 60% arrange on bottom center of frame
element 43 resize 50% arrange to the left of element 15
element 36 resize 59% arrange to the left & a little above the other rose 
element 53 resize 50% arrange on left
element 47 resize 45% arrange on left
element 83 resize 30% arrange on left

Copy & paste paper 2 just above the white background & add your mask

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
