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 Misticheskaya (Samantha) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Silver & Gold by Amy Marie Scraps
Font of choice, I am using Pristina
Mask of your choice
Plugins: No outside plugins
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 62 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 5 copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard
copy and paste your tube, resize 75% take the eraser tool and erase the parts that you don't want outside the frame
add the following elements
element 64 resize 65% arrange on bottom right, duplicate & mirror
element 110 resize 45% arrange on bottom right
element 112 resize 45% arrange on bottom left
