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

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

Open element20
Copy and past into your canvas
Scale down by 70%

Open up the preview
Copy and paste into your canvas
Using you magic wand tool select inside of your frame.
Select ---> Modify ---> Expand, by 5, okay.
Invert your selection, go to the preview layer and press delete.

Filter ---> Pixelate ---> Pointillize
I did a cell size of 5

Filter ---> Brush strokes ---> Sprayed Strokes
All set at default.

Open up your tube and copy and paste into your canvas.
Resize and position to your liking
Duplicate the layer
Drag the bottom tube layer below your frame.
On that layer erase the bits sticking out of the bottom.
Add a drop shadow of choice to this layer.

Now, on the top tube layer, erase the parts that you'd like to that are overlapping the frame.
Filter ---> Xero ---> Porcelain
All at default expect the blue channel, slide over to the left to 0.

Filter ---> Xero ---> Radience
Do something subtle that just brightens the tube back up a bit.

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

Now take a closer up of your tube and postion just about your frame background.
Erase any parts outside of your frame.
Change the blend mode to luminosity and the opacity to 70%

Open up Paper2
Resize to 600px x 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas
Drag this layer to just above the white background and apply your mask.

Now we're just going to embellish.
Do so to your liking.

I used the following in this order:
Below the frame background layer:

Above the frame layer but below the tube layer:
Element 11
Element 11

Add your name and any word art that you may like to.

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

Resize if you'd like to.

You're done!
