Mother's Day

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 Ishika Chowdhury (Ma) which you need a license to use. 
This beautiful tube has 3 different layers with different dress colors.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Bright As Flowers by Black Widow Creationz

Font of choice, I am using Daisy Delights

Mask: of your choice

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 18  copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, arrange in the frame, 
click delete on your keyboard & deselect

Hide the white background, merge visible, unhide white background
 Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 55% 
arrange along the left side of the frame

 Now we'll add the elements

 element 30 arrange on the right side, below the tube, duplicate,
mirror and erase the grassy bits on the left side

element 39 arrange on the left, between tube & frame
element 5 resize  80% arrange along bottom of frame
element 6 resize  45% mirror, arrange by tube
element 8 resize  35% arrange by tube

element 32 resize  35% arrange behind tube on left, duplicate, rotate left 35, drag up a little higher
than the original, go back to the original, duplicate, mirror, drag back with the other 2

element 15 resize  55% mirror, arrange below the 3 flowers on the left

add a paper above the white background
apply your mask

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