Steampunk Dreamer

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 Angelica S (Lucinda available at PFD)
. which you need a license to use.  This is a tube she had before, but redone to include more layers and color choices.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Sweet Steampunk, a PTU kit by Inzpired Creationz, available at PFD

Font of choice, I am using Reditum

Mask: WSL84 - masks are on the right sidebar

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 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

open Frame 3 copy and paste as a new layer resize 85%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 13 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
copy & paste your tube, resize 45%, arrange in the frame and erase the bits that 
hang over the bottom where you don't want them to be

Add the following elements
clock 2 resize  40% mirror and arrange on the bottom right
