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 which you need a license to use.
This particular tube is an exclusive forum commission only available at the forum ACDivas
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Black Widow Creationz called Bright As Flowers
Font of choice, I am using Foxes In Love
Mask: DD Simple Circle Mask 4Plugins: 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 EL33 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 1 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,
open your close up tube copy and paste as a new layer
arrange in the frame, I put mine on the left side
click delete on your keyboard, deselect
change the blend mode to Luminance(L)
Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer
resize 70% arrange on the right side of the frame
Now we'll add our elements
element 2 resize 70% mirror and arrange on the bottom, below the tube layer
element 8 resize 40% arrange on the leafy vine, duplicate & flip, drag down and arrange on the vine
element 27 resize 30% arrange behind the white flowers on the top part of the vine
and duplicate and drag that one down in front of the flowers on the lower part of the vine
element 16 resize 30% arrange in between some of the flower layers, duplicate and move to the right
element 32 resize 40% arrange on the left, above the other flowers & the vine, duplicate and rotate the duplicate to the left 45
Go back on the original one, duplicate it and mirror it, then drag that one over to the left of the other 2

element 50 resize 45% arrange on the left side of the frame
Copy and paste paper 8 above the white background
