Veronica's Garden

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 Ninaste at Beehive Studio (Veronica )
which you need a license to use.  I'm working with the purple layer, there are also orange and pink layers
and layers with different clothing options

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Tiny Turtle Designs called Veronica Kit, which
was made to match the tube.

Font of choice, I am using Beautiful ES

Plugins: No outside plugins
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 41 copy and paste as a new layer resize 130%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open 37 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard
open your close up tube, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer
arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard
change the blend mode to luminance(L) and drop the opacity to 40
then deselect

Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer resize 45%
arrange on the right side of the frame

 Now add your elements
 element 92 resize  55% arrange in front of tube
