Bonita Spring

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 tube (green & pink layers) 
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit, Spring Bonita by Tiny Turtle Designs, made to go with
the green and pink layers of the tube

Font of choice, I am using Rabbit Moon

Mask: WSL Mask84  links to masks are on the right sidebar

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 29 copy and paste as a new layer resize 110%
Set your magic wand settings with tolerance at 30 the
click inside with your magic wand, getting some of the open area between the twigs, selections, modify, expand 12, selections, invert
open paper 37 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,

mirror your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 60%
arrange in the frame, erase the bits of the legs that hang over the bottom of the frame

now we will add our elements, you can check my tag for exact placement
 element 10 arrange across the bottom of the frame
element 102 resize  45% arrange on right side above & behind the ribbon layer
element 105 resize  45% arrange in front of ribbon layer on the left
