Spring Boy

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 Derzi at Beehive Studio, which you need a license to use. 
This tube is called Spring Boy and he's part of the Flower Blast Collection which comes with 7 Chibbies tubes

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit Flower Blast Collection, by Tiny Turtle Designs
made to match the whole Flower Blast Collection by Derzi.

Font of choice, I am using Piranha

Mask: Boundless Bliss Grunge Mask 1 (site no longer available but she allows links to the mask)

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
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 75%

Now we'll add the elements & you can check my example tag for a good idea of placement

element 124  arrange on the bottom left, duplicate & mirror
element 131 resize  65% arrange on right, behind grass layer
element 76 arrange on the left
element 122 arrange to the right of and behind the house
element 159 arrange on right, behind fence layer
element 33 resize  25% duplicate once & mirror the duplicate, arrange them along the fence
element 149 resize  30% arrange in the front of the grass and flowers at the bottom right
element 139 resize  65% arrange on the left
element 172 arrange behind the fence on the right 

element 209, resize 15% arrange by the flowers along the fence,
duplicate, mirror it, resize 60%, duplicate it
resize the duplicate 75% duplicate it
resize the duplicate 75% and mirror it, arrange them how you like

 Copy and paste paper 30 above the white background
apply your mask

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