Click on image to see larger version

I created this tut in PSPX1 but it can be done
with any version of PSP. This is an easy tutorial
with not much to do, just take your time.
No outside filters used

You will need:
2 tubes, one close-up. I used the artwork of Thomas Hoover.
You will need to be a rewgistered member of PTE
to purchase his tubes, but any tubes will do.
Scrap kit called 'Silver Shadow' from SimplySensationalScraps
Mask #84 from WeeScotsLass
Font 'Respective' from Dafont.com

New white canvas 800x800

Open up the mask #84 & minimise it.
On your canvas - Select All - new raster layer. Copy a paper from the scrap kit &
Paste Into Selection. Selections-None.
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group.
Copy & paste one of the Frames (5 or 6) from scrap kit as a new layer. Using your Freehand
Selection Tool, draw around the Frame like this

Copy & paste another paper from scrap kit as a new layer. Selections-Invert, hit delete.
Keep selected - move that paper layer below the Frame. Copy & paste your close-up tube as
a new layer - position the tube so it is in the middle of the Frame. When happy, hit delete.
Your tube should be below the Frame. Have your tube layer active, go to Blend Mode- Luminance Legacy
Add this drop shadow to your tube, also the Frame

Make top layer active. Copy & paste one of the Ivy elements as a new layer - Image-Free Rotate-
60 left. Move across to left side of frame - duplicate - Image-Mirror. Merge Down. Add drop shadow.
Copy & paste one of the Butterfies from scarp kit as a new layer. I resized mine 70% Bicubic-all layers
Unchecked. Add drop shadow & place top corner of frame.

Copy & paste your 2nd tube as a new layer, placing it to one side. Add drop shadow.
Copy & paste one of the Journels from scrap kit as a new layer. I resized my Journel 80% Bicubic-all
layers Unchecked. Move across to top tube. Add drop shadow.

Add your name & correct copyright. When you have done that, cross out eyes on bottom layer (white)
Merge Visibale all other layers. Turn eyes back on, on bottom layer - Crop Tool, crop excess white background,
being careful not to crop any of your merged image. Click COPY & paste as a New Image on your workspace.
Your merged image should now have a transparent background. Resize to your liking. I resized mine 80%
Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png
