Click on image for larger preview
This tutorial was written by me on October 3, 2012 and are the result of my own imagination. Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies needed

I am using PSP X4 but this tutorial should work with any version.

PTU Tube:  I am using the fantastic artwork of Alex Prihodko. 
Please do not use this artwork without a  proper license.  You can
purchase this beauty at PFD here.

PTU scrap kit:  I am using Autumn Masquerade (TS) by Baby Cakes Scraps.  Thank you for creating this fantastic kit.  You can view it at her blog here or purchase it a her store here.

Mask: WSL_Mask116.  You can download it from Weescotslass Creations here.

This tutorial was written using the supplies above.  If you are using a different tube or scrap kit you may need to make adjustments.  I am using a drop shadow of V/H 2 Opacity 50, blur 5, color black through out the tutorial unless otherwise state.

Open a new 600x600 transparent image.

Open Element 16, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 60%, all layers not checked.

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 10.  Copy and close the original.  Using your magic wand, select inside all 3 frames.  Selections, modify and expand by 2.  Paste your paper as a new layer and selections invert.  Hit delete on your keyboard and select none.  Move you paper layer under your frame layer.  Open your tube and copy.  Paste as a new layer and resize 60%.  Move your tube so the face is in the top frame.  Select inside your top frame using your magic wand and selections invert.  Standing on your tube layer hit delete on your keyboard. Select none.  Change your blend mode to Luminance legacy and lower the opacity to 70% or to your liking.  Repeat this process for your Middle frame but select a different part of the tube and use a different blend mode.

Paste your tube one more time.  Image resize 50% and again by 80% and add a drop shadow.  Mirror.  Select inside your bottom frame using your magic wand and move your tube so it looks like she is poping out of the frame.  See mine for placement.  Selections invert and using your eraser tool, erase the bottom of your tube.  Select none and add a drop shadow to your frame.

Select raster 1.  Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 5.  Copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and apply WSL_Mask116.  Merge group.

Time for some elements.  Use the ones you like or use the ones I used.  I used the following:

Element 62:  Paste above your mask layer and resize 70% and repeat.  Duplicate and mirror.

Element 46:  Select your tube layer and paste as a new layer. 

Resize 30% and again by 60%.  Move above your tube on the bottom right corner of the frame and add a drop shadow.

Element 28:  Paste as a new layer and resize 25%  Move this to the top right corner of your middle frame and drop shadow.

Element 13:  Select your leaf layer and paste.  Move this to the middle left.  

Element 06:  Select your leaf layer and paste.  Move this to the bottom right corner.

Add any other element you like.  Once happy with your tag, add your copyright and name.  Save as png and your done.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.  I would love to see your results.
