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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.
Open element19
Scale down by 70%, duplicate
Rotate the bottom one -5 degrees
Rotate the top one 5 degrees
Select the top one and add a new layer
Flood fill the selection with a color from your tube.
Deselect and change the blend mode to multiply
Merge the three layers together

Open paper4
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside of the frames
Get all the little pieces around the outside as best you can
Select → Modify → Expand, by 8
invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete.

Open paper1
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to you canvas below the other paper layer
Apply your mask to this layer

Open your tube and I used the most full bodied one.
Resize and reposition to your liking
have this below your frame but above your papers
On the bottom add a drop shadow
On the new one bring it above your frame
Erase any parts at the bottom that are over the frame
Filter → Blur → Gausssian blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to screen, change the opacity to 50%

Add your tube between the frame and paper layer two more time, resizing and positioning to yoru liking
Erase any parts that are outside the frames
Change both blend modes to luminosity
Change once to opacity of 50% the other to 30%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

element6 (no drop shadow)
element6 (no drop shadow)
Add some wordart to your tag if you'd like
element17 (just the pink)
element17 (just the pink)
