Princess & Dragon

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. which you need a license to use.  
This tube is available at Pics for Design available in the Exclusives section

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Little Wish by Amy Marie
Here's a preview of the kit

Font of choice, I am using Scriptina. I did the forground & background in the same color
then set the stroke to 1 to make it a little thicker so it was easier to see

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 74 copy and paste as a new layer 
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 6 copy and paste as a new layer arrange in frame, click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 55% erase the bits that hang below the frame, deselect

Add your elements
element 53 arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 71 arrange across bottom of frame, duplicate, drag down, merge together, drag to the right
duplicate & mirror
element 96 arrange on the bottom in the middle
element 93 resize 40% arrange on right, behind element 96, duplicate & mirror
element 86 resize 55% arrange on right
element 6 resize 55% arrange on left
element 94 arrange cross bottom, slightly to the right
element 29 resize 85% arrange on top left, duplicate & mirror, drag the duplicate down slightly
