Strawberry Picnic

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 Alicia Mujica which you need a license to use. 
This tube is an Exclusive tube to CDO and can only be purchased there 
The link when you click Alicia's name takes you to her personal store, the link when you click the tube name will take you to her exclusive at CDO store.

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

Font of choice, I am using Little Miss Priss

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 950 x 850 pixels with a white background

Copy & paste element 88 to your canvas, duplicate, mirror, drag the duplicate to the right
Copy & paste element 103, arrange in front of 88 and to the left, duplicate & mirror, 
merge these two together, duplicate & flip, drag the duplicate down in front of the original merged layer
duplicate again & drag down
Duplicate the layer 88 layers a couple times and drag down to fill in the spots left with the element 103 layers
When you are happy with the big grassy area, hide the white background and merge visible

copy and paste your tube resize 75% arrange in the center of the grass to the right

add the following elements
element 99 resize 55% arrange to the left of and behind tube layer, duplicate & mirror
element 48 resize 35% arrange in front of tube, to the right
element 42 resize 55% arrange by the pail
element 56 resize 75% rotate left 90 arrange in front of tube
