This Tutorial was written on October 26th, 2011 by Ashly

This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

Filters Needed
Xero – Porcelain
Xero – Radiance

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open up a new canvas
600px x 600px.
Flood fill with white

Open as46
Copy and paste onto your canvas and scale down to 70%
add a drop shadow

Open Paper03
Resize to 600px x 600px
Copy and paste onto your canvas
Drag below your frame layer.
Use your magic wand and select inside the two frames
Select ---> Modify ---> Expand, by 4
Invert the selection and on the paper layer, press delete

Open your tube up.
Choose the layers you want showing (I went with the green)
Hide the others, including the background and merge visible
Copy and paste the merged layer onto your canvas.
Resize and position to your liking.
Add a drop shadow

Filter ---> Xero ---> Porcelain
All at default except the blue channel, slide all the way to the left to 0.

Filter ---> Xero ---> Radiance
Something Sublte that just brightens the tube up a bit.

Filter ---> Sharpen ---> Unsharp mask
All at default.

Paste your tube layer again and put just her face in the one frame, resize how you want it.
Ctrl + Click the thumbnail in the layers of your frame background, invert the selection
On your close up tube layer, press delete.
Erase any bit that may be hanging over into the other frame.
Change the Blend mode of this layer to Luminosity and the opacity at 80%
Duplicate the layer
Change the blend mode to Vivid light and leave the opacity at 80%

Add your tube to the other side of the frame just like you did last time just make it smaller
I acutally added it twice and deleted the extras like before
Then changed the blend mode to overlay.

Now Go down to your white background layer and click on that layer and then add a new layer
Flood fill with a color of your choice that compliments your tube.
I did #001b06
Apply your mask to this layer.
Then take your eliptical tool and have is set to a feather of about 25px.
Draw out a selection, and then invert the selection and on the mask layer press delete.

Now we're going to embellish.
Do so to your liking, you can use mine as an example.

I used the following with a dropshadow (unless otherwise stated)
Resized and rotated as you want.

~Between the Mask layer and the frame background layer~
as38 (no dropshadow)
as 38 (no dropshadow)
as67 (no dropshadow)
as67 (no dropshadow)
~Above the tubes in the frames but below the frame layer
as15 (opacity at 50%, no drop shadow)
Duplicate this and repositioned

~Above the top tube layer~

Add your name to your tag

Image ---> Trim
Top left pixel color, all boxes checked

Resize if you want to

*****Most Important*****
Add your copyright info to the tag.

If you're happy with what you've done hide the bottom white layer and then save as a .png
and You're done!
