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. 

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

Font of choice, I am using AT Mahogany Script

Mask: WSL84

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 67 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 8 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 45%, arrange in the frame and
erase the bits that hang out from the bottom of your frame

Now we'll add our elements
element 26 resize 65% arrange on bottom right
element 47 arrange across bottom of frame
element 41 resize 65% arrange on bottom left corner
element 21 resize 75%  arrange on right, behind pot of gold layer
element 18 resize 60% arrange behind mushrooms on bottom left
element 10 resize 60% arrange on bottom left behind leprechaun
element 5 resize 30% arrange by pot of gold, duplicate, mirror

Copy and paste paper 12 above the white background
apply your mask

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