Lazy Autumn 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 Alicia Mujica (Drusila tube) which you need a license to use. 

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

Font of choice, I am using Anysome

Mask of your choice

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 950 x 850 pixels with a white background

open element 61 copy and paste as a new layer rotate left 90 resize 80%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 22 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected
open your tube, copy & paste as a new layer, resize 45%
arrange in frame & erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

add the following elements

element 6 resize  25% arrange on bottom left, duplicate several times until you have enough to
go across the bottom and arrange how you like

element 4 resize 25% duplicate several times & arrange between acorns

element 11 resize  43% arrange on far right
element 12 resize  25% arrange left of the apple bushel
element 16 arrange on right, just above the frame layer
element 14 resize  25% , duplicate 3 times arrange on the bottom in between the other leaves
element 55 resize  25% rotate left 25 arrange in the leaves

add paper 8 above the white background
apply your mask, merge group

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