Natural Beauty

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 Arthur Crowe (Natural Beauty) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching PTU kit, Natural Beauty by Creation by Sanie also
available at Arthur's store. You can get just the kit here or the tube and kit here

Font of choice, I am using A Little Pot

Plugins: No outside plugins used
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  Frame 1 copy and paste as a new layer 
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 7 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Copy & paste your tube, resizer 80%, arrange in the frame, 
erase the parts hanging over the frame where you don't want them.

For the elements I used:
element 1 resize 60% arrange in the middle on the bottom of the frame
flower 1  resize 60% rotate right 35 arrange to right of element 1, duplicate & mirror
sunflower 2 resize 40%  arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 3 arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 11 resize 40%  arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
leaf 4 resize 50% & flip arrange on right, duplicate & mirror
sparkle 3 arrange in between some of the flower & leaf layers, duplicate & mirror

Open paper 11 copy and paste just above the white background
apply your mask

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