I created this tut in PSPX1 (11) but it can be done
with any version of PSP. This is an easy tutorial
just take your time.

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Jessica Dougherty's lovely lady ubes.
You need to be a registered member of CDO
to purchase her tubes, but any tube will do.
Collab Temp-Tamie & Tonya Temp1 from CreativeMisfitsCreations
(scroll down till you see the link for Tamie & Tonya)
Vix BigMask001
Plugin Filters:

Font I used is called 'Fifont'
My WordArt

Now, delete Star Line 2 layer. You can colouriz Star Line 1 if you want.
Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - moving it to where it will look nice on the small squares (see mine for placement)
Add my WordArt as a new layer - colourize it to suit the tube. Add a nice EC-Gradient glow to the WordArt if you wish.
Add your name & correct copyright. When you have done that, cross out eyes on bottom layer (white background), Merge Visible
all other layers. Open eyes up on bottom layer. At this stage you can use the Crop Tool to crop excess white background, being
careful not to crop any of your merge image. When you have done that, click COPY & paste it as a New Image on your work space.
I resized my merged image 74% Bicubic-all layers Checked, but that is up to you what size you want yours.
Save as a *Png.
