Autumn Feeling

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 (November tube)
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU scrap kit, Harvest Nights by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me

Font of choice, I am using Restaurant

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

open 57 copy and paste as a new layer resize 90%
click inside with your magic wand, make sure you get all the little areas between the twigs, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 8 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard
take your close up tube, mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer above the background paper
arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard and deselect.

Duplicate the tube, on the top layer, adjust blur, gaussian at 3, change blend mode to soft light
on the bottom layer, apply Xero Porcelain with the default settings, except change blue to zero

 Copy and paste your main tube as a new layer arrange on the right side

 add the following elements
 element 11 resize  55% arrange on bottom left
element 77 resize  45% arrange behind apple basket
element 12 resize 35% arrange in front of and to the right of the apple basket
element 55 resize  20% arrange on the top left
element 6 resize  20% arrange over the top of the sign

element 3 mirror & arrange behind the tube, below all the other layers
element 16 arrange under the frame so the leaves are showing at the top of the frame to the left of the other tree

element 51 resize  20% arrange in front of barrels on the bottom right
 element 20 resize  45% arrange in front of the basket of apples

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