Spring Break

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 Fedor (Melissa tube) which you need a license to use.  

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

Font of choice, I am using Qaskin

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 950 x 950 pixels with a white background

Open element 89 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 70%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2,
make a new raster layer below the frame, make sure you're on that layer
copy and paste paper into selection, deselect

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 30%
mirror, arrange on left side

now add your elements:
element 88 resize 55% arrange on top right, duplicate & mirror
element 14 resize 20% rotate left 20 arrange in center of two branches at top

element 104 resize 60% arrange behind and above the tube
