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 The Hunter, (Sad Winter) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using Sad Winter by Black Widow Creationz which matches the tube
Font of choice, I am using Dreamer
Mask of your choice
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 element 29 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
open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75% arrange in the frame
take your eraser tool and erase what you don't want sticking out of the frame
add the following elements:

element 3 resize 35% arrange to the right of the red shape on the bottom
