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 Keith Garvey (All American Girl)  which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit, Independence Day by Graphics Of Fantasy
available at Graphics of Fantasy Store and at PicsForDesign

Font of choice, I am using Politician

Mask: WSL84 by Weescotslass Creations, the links to the masks are on the right sidebar just a little bit down the page

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

Add the following elements:

element 25 move it almost to the top
element 24 arrange on top of the city layer, to the right side
element 26 arrange on the left between the other two layers

element 59 resize 40% arrange between the Mt. Rushmore (heads) and the city on the right,
duplicate, mirror, drag back over to the right, and put the layer behind the city layer

element 26 resize  30% arrange on top right
element 22 resize  75% arrange on bottom left
element 68 resize  55% arrange on top left behind city layer
element 33 resize  30% arrange to the right of the car
element 29 resize  27% arrange in the back car window
element 56 resize  60% arrange on bottom right
Copy and paste your tube, arrange between the city and Mt. Rushmore layer

Copy & paste paper 5 above the white background layer
then apply your mask
duplicate & drag the duplicate to the left & merge

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