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 (Peace Police) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, 8 of 2014 by Amy Marie

Font of choice, I am using CAC Shishoni Brush

Mask: WSLMask84

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  copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 2 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 38% arrange in the frame, erase where the bottom hangs too far out of the frame & deselect

Add the following elements
element 79 resize 75% arrange on bottom right
element 61 resize 75% arrange behind stump on bottom right
element 33 rotate left 90 arrange behind yellow flowers on bottom right, erase where the stem sticks out
element 23 resize 75% arrange on bottom left
element 27 resize 70% arrange on bottom left, 
duplicate, resize 70% mirror, arrange behind the layer 23
element 42 arrange on right, below the frame background layer 
so it shows below everything on the bottom right, duplicate & mirror
element 49 resize 45% arrange in the center on the bottom
element 43 resize 55%  arrange on bottom in front of grass
element 25 resize 65%  arrange on top of flowers
element 26 arrange on bottom, drag down so it is between some of the flower layers

Copy and paste paper 14
apply your mask

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