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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open RD12
Add to your canvas
Resize to about 80%
Add a drop shadow

Open PP06
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas and have it below the frame in the layers pallate
Use your magic wand and select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection and press Delete

Open PP04
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas and have it below the other paper we just added before in the layers pallate
Add your mask to this layer.
Add the full tube to the left of your canvas, resized and positioned as you'd like
Erase the part of the tube that's over the frame and the very bottom of the tag
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom one add a drop shadow

On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode of this layer to overlay

Add your close up of your tube in between the frame and the paper backround
I flipped mine horizontally and resized a bit
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity and the opacity to 50%

Now just add the elements that you'd like to, to your tag
Resized, repositioned and with a drop shadow of choice
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless specified

RD25 (no drop shadow)

Add your name

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

Go to your paper frame background and duplicate it 3 times so that you have 4 of the layers.

On the bottom of the 4 layers
Filter → Greg's Factory Output Vol. II → Pool Shadow
Use the following settings:

Repeat this on each of the other three layers
lowering the first diagonal by 10 on each
So the second one at 90
third at 80
fourth at 70

In the animation window have the delay set to .4 sec and to repeat forever
have a frame in the animation window for each of the 4 layers and change the layer visible on each one
Press play to see your animation working

If you're happy with you're result save as a .gif you're done!
