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 Elias Chatzoudis (Cinterella) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Swan Princess by Graphics Of Fantasy, available at
Font of choice, I am using Silky Written

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
element 67 resize  75% arrange at the top of the canvas

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 80%  arrange near the bottom of the canvas,
just leave a little space between her and the castle

element 12 resize  65% arrange on the left, in front of castle, duplicate & mirror
element 21 resize  65% arrange on the right side, behind the castle, duplicate & mirror

element 51 arrange below the other foilage, duplicate & mirror
duplicate it a few more times and arrange around the canvas

element 10 resize  40% arrange on bottom right
element 75 resize  35% arrange on left
element 83 resize  35% arrange on bottom left
element 34 resize  20% arrange in front of pink mushroom on bottom right
element 9 resize  45% arrange between the tube & castle on the right
element 104  arrange behind the castle

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