Don't Bug Me

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 Alicia Mujica (Cuore tube)  which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit by Monti 

Font of choice, I am using Atelas

Plugins: No outside mask

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 frame 5 copy and paste as a new layer resize 70%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 3 copy and paste as a new layer 
click delete on your keyboard

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by50%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them

Now add your elements:

element resize % arrange
element 51 resize 45% arrange on bottom left

element 67 resize 40% arrange on the left side below the birdhouse layer, duplicate, drag to the right,
duplicate it again, mirror, arrange below the birdhouse on the right of it,
rotate the one right by the birdhouse left 45, rotate the one on the far right by 45 righ

element 68 resize48 % arrange between the two red ones on the right side of the birdhouse, erase the
leaves and stems that hang below the others on the bottom

element 39 resize 30% arrange between the white and red flower on the right
element 1 resize 30% then 80% arrange on the right side of the birdhouse
element 74 resize 40% then 80% arrange on the left

element 76 resize 50% mirror & arrange on the right
element word art resize 80% twice, arrange on the bottom, erase some of the vines that show behind it and make it look messy

add paper 3 just above the white background
apply your mask, merge group, resize 90%, drag up

crop and resize
