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 (Lada) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Love N Fairyland by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Cupid de Locke
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 61 copy and paste as a new layer resize 90%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 21 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
Copy & paste your tube, resize 60% arrange on left of frame
Add the following:

element 49 resize 65% arrange on right, below the element 100 layer
element 54 resize 65% arrange on left, behind the tube
