Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey (Mila tube) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Ginny by Schnegge Scraps  

Font of choice, I am using Gants de Soie

Plugins: No outside plugins used

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 element 28 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75%, rotate right 90 
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 4 copy and paste as a new layer 
click delete on your keyboard,

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer,
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

Now add your elements:
element 9 resize 65% arrange on the bottom left corner
element 18 resize 75% arrange across the bottom of the frame
element 59 resize 60% rotate left 30 arrange between the other two elements 

element 12 arrange below the brooch layer and above the other two at the bottom
