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 Ismael Rac, 2014 Pinup Pose, which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Elegance, by Amy Marie

Font of choice, I am using Riesling

Mask: Horseplay's Pasture Mask 11

Plugins: Xero Porcelain
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 41 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
Open your tube, mirror it, paste it in the frame, arrange it how you want it, click delete on your keyboard
Duplicate your tube, the top tube, adjust blur, gaussian by 3, change the blend mode to soft light
on the bottom tube, apply Xero Porcelain with the default settings but change blue to zero
 Copy & paste your main tube, resize 45% arrange on left

Add the following elements
element 25 resize 90% arrange on bottom right
element 24 resize70%  arrange above the other flowers on the right
element 49 resize 60% arrange on bottom right
element 46 resize 50% arrange in front of chest on bottom right
element 7 resize 40% arrange to the left of the chest on the bottom
element 27 resize 75%  arrange between the perfume bottle and chest
element 20 resize 40%  arrange to the left of perfume bottle
element 55 resize 40% arrange on top of chest
element 68, arrange across bottom, erase bits that go over the top of some elements so it looks like it's wrapping through them

Add paper 20 above the white background & apply your mask

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