Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Caron Vinson which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through CDO here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU from Creation by Grazy called My Backyard which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask226 which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Pointed Brush
Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, paste into selection Paper 1. Select none. New mask layer from image WSL_Mask226, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group. Layer duplicate and merge down both mask layers. Resize 110%.

Copy and paste Element 70 & resize 35%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 3. Copy and paste Paper 6 below your frame layer, resize 20%, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and then drop shadow your frame.

I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Element 61, resize 35% and then 40% & drop shadow.

Copy and paste Element 7, resize 50% twice & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side of your frames. Repeat with Element 26, resizing 35% twice. Repeat with Element 35 and position on the right hand side.

Copy and paste your tube and resize as necessary.

Copy and paste Element 55, resize 35% & then 40%, image flip & drop shadow. Position along the bottom of your frames. Layer duplicate and image mirror.

Copy and paste Element 60, resize 40% twice, rotate right 45 & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner of your frames. If you like, trim the bottom of your stem.

Copy and paste Element 59, resize 25% twice & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 47, resize 35% twice, mirror & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner as well.

Copy and paste Element 50, resize 40% twice & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner of your frames. Repeat with Element 4.

Copy and paste Element 11, resize 40% twice, rotate right 15 & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright and your name. I have used Pointed Brush, Size 60, Color #e2c553. I then added a size 5 fat color #a4d2cb gradient glow & then drop shadow.

Save and you are done.
