Blue Love

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 Misticheskaya (Briana) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Blue Love by Graphics of Fantasy available at

Font of choice, I am using Spring Tyme

Mask: GemsMask19

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

open frame 7 copy and paste as a new layer leave right in the center where it pasted it
Click on your magic wand, make sure it's set on add (shift)
click inside the different sections of the frame with your magic wand, selections, 
modify, expand 2, selections, invert

open paper 4 copy and paste as a new layer below the frame layer
leave this right where it pastes it as well
click delete on your keyboard,
Merge these 2 layers together & drag to the right
 Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 45%
arrange on the left side of the frames

Now for our elements

element  111 resize 40% arrange on bottom right
 element 119 resize 40% arrange below and to the left of 111

element 28 resize 40% arrange  along side of frame, duplicate, mirror, arrange a little 
higher up and to the right of the original

element 55 resize 40% arrange between the two blue flowers along the side of frame
duplicate, rotate right 15, drag to the right of the blue flower on the right side, duplicate, mirror
and drag that one so it's to the left of the other blue flower

element 120 resize 30% arrange between the big blue flower at the bottom and 
the blue and yellow flowers that are to the left of it
duplicate it, mirror, drag back over below the yellow flowers, resize 85%
element 54 resize 35% duplicate a couple times arrange around in the layers of flowers
element 42 resize 15% arrange along the top of where the yellow flowers meet the big blue one
behind and above them, so it's also along the edge of the paper we put in the frame

add paper 1 just above the white background 
apply your mask

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