Bonita Bunny

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 Beehive Studio - Ninaste (Bonita) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit, Bonita Kit by Tiny Turtle Designs, which was made to match
the purple and teal layer of the Bonita tube.

Font of choice, I am using Anabelle Script Light

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 34 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, make sure to click inside the little sections between the different sections of the frame
selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 36 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard

open your tube copy and paste as a new layer resize 55% arrange in frame
duplicate, drag the duplicate above the frame and hide it

take your eraser tool and on the bottom copy, erase where it hangs out the bottom of the frame
deselect & then unhide the top tube layer

take the eraser tool and erase where the frame goes over the legs and basket of the tube

Now the bottom of the tube should look like it's below the frame and the upper part should look like it's above the frame. If you are adding drop shadow to the tube, only apply it to the bottom tube layer

Now we'll add our elements, you can check my tag for exact placement

 element 98 resize  65% arrange on the bottom right
element 63 mirror & resize  45% arrange in front of the house

element 92 resize  55% arrange behind the wheelbarrow layer, duplicate
mirror the duplicate layer, rotate right 20, drag below the original layer

element 140 resize  55% arrange behind the house, duplicate & arrange above the original
erase the stems that show below the house layer

element 90 rotate right 90 resize 75 % arrange below the house and flowers on the right
element 10 resize  25% arrange in front of wheelbarrow
element 146 resize  45% arrange on the top left of the frame
element 105 resize  35% arrange on the bottom in the center

element 83 resize  45% arrange on the top right
