Love's Garden 2

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 Alehandra VanHeck, which you need a license to use. 
This tube is part of PFD's Exclusive Club

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  Unicorns N Fairies, a PTU kit by Amy Marie

Font of choice, I am using A T & Love

Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
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 1000 x 1000 pixels with a white background
You can crop it and resize it at the end, I knew I was creating a scene with grass and water
and trees, etc and wanted plenty of space to work it out.

Open 86 (grass), duplicate several times and arrange them around until you get a decent sized patch of 
grass you may want to mirror and/or flip several of them to get them where they all go together and 
hide the open spots on the edges. Once you get them all how you want them, hide the white background layer and merge visible, then unhide the white background.

Open layer 62, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange below the grass layer, and over slightly left
Add layer 35, mirror, arrange it to the right of the water layer to hide the edge
add layer 84 to the left of the water, hiding that edge

Copy and paste your tube, resize 30% arrange in the center

Add the following elements
element 37 resize 80% arrange in the water
 element 46 resize 80% arrange on right side of tree that we placed by the water
duplicate, resize the copy 75% arrange on left side of tree
element 41 arrange between the tree and tube
 element 75 resize 75% arrange by tree, duplicate & arrange by tube, duplicate, resize 75% 
arrange on the right side
element 54 resize 30% arrange on the right

Apply a paper of choice above the white background
apply your mask

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