This Tutorial was written on December 12th, 2011 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey
You must purchase his work for use and can do so HERE
One with a close up and a full body will work best.

Kit of choice.
I am using a PTU Scrapkit called, “Snow Bunny” by Designs by Sarah
You can purchase this kit for use HERE

Mask of Choice
I cannot remember where I got this one so, I'll post it here and if anyone remembers I'll gladly change to a link instead.

Filters Needed
Xero – Porcelain
Xero - Radience

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

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

Open frame1
Copy and paste into your canvas
Resieze Width by 80% and Heigth by 110%
Add a drop shadow.

Open pp6
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas
Move below your frame layer.
Use your magic wand and select inside of your frame

Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete.

Open pp4
Resize to 600px by 600px
Copy and paste into your canvas
Move below your paper frame background
apply your mask here

Go to your tube and get your full body tube.
This should be the top most layer for now
Position it to one side of your frame and resize it.
Add a drop shadow.

Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All at default, except blue channel at 0.

Filer → Xero → Radiance
Something subtle that just brightens the tube back up a bit.

Filer → Sharpen → Unsharp Mask
All at default

Go back to your tube and get your close up
Copy and paste onto your canvas
This should be between your frame and the pink background layer we made
Adjust it and position it to your liking.
Once you're happy with this
Change the blend mode to luminosity and opacity to 80%
Duplicate this layer
On the new layer.
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 5.0
Change the blend mode to hard light, opacity of 100%

Now we're just going to embellish.
Do so to your liking and with a drop shadow of choice.
I used the following with a drop shadow, unless otherwise specified.
From the bottom up.

~Above the Mask layer, below the frame background layer~

glitterspray1 (no drop shadow)

~Above the top tube layer~
