Spring Blossom

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 (Blossom) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Ivy Blossom by Amy Marie that was made to go with Alicia Mujica's Blossom and Ivy tubes

Font of choice, I am using Scriptina

Mask: GemsMask173
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 91 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2
make a new raster layer below the frame layer, make sure you're on that layer
open paper 18 copy and paste into selection

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 40%

Add the following elements
element 95 arrange on top left, duplicate & mirror
element 125 rotate right 90 resize 85%  arrange on top left below the other flowers, duplicate & mirror

element 128 arrange on left, under frame, duplicate, rotate left 20 arrange on rightmerge these two together
Duplicate, drag down a little bit, and erase the corners so it blends into the other layer

element 115 resize  25% arrange in the vines on the top right
 element 47 arrange on bottom right, duplicate & mirror
element 110 arrange on bottom left under the white flowers, duplicate & mirror
element 130 resize  85% arrange on left, duplicate & mirror
element 84 resize  45% arrange on top left, duplicate & mirror
element 42 resize  45% arrange on left side
element 5 resize  45% arrange on bottom left, between some of the other flower layers duplicate & mirror
element 87 arrange along the bottom in the flowers, duplicate & mirror

 Add paper 2 above the white background layer
apply your mask

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