Think About You

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. 

Font of choice, I am using Dagobert

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 element 68
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open  paper 9 copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard
merge the two layers together 
rotate right 25

Copy and paste your tube in your canvas

Add the following elements
element 16 resize 65  arrange to the left of the tube & below the tube layer
element 25 arrange between frame and tube at the bottom
element 2 arrange between frame and element 25 (leaves & flowers)
element 54 resize 60% arrange on bottom right side of frame
element 94 arrange on left behind heart frame I erased the back end of the arrow that was showing at the top
element 30 arrange on top right, duplicate & mirror, drag the duplicate down and right
element 86 rotate left 25 arrange on top right, duplicate, drag down and right
erase any bits of beads that show up where you don't want them

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