This Tutorial was written on April 3rd, 2012 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.
Do not translate or script.
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
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Lielman
Use must purchase a license to use his artwork and can do so HERE
This particular tube was a prepaid project but you can still get it by joining the exclusive club at PFD

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using Alika's Scraps portion of “The Bunny Patch” which is the freebie collab at Heartfelt Perfections if you purchase a certain amount
Which you can find more about HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using gemsmask16
Which you can find for use HERE

 ~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

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

Open as31
use your rectangle selction tool and select just one half of the frame
Ctrl + C
And the Ctrl + V onto your canvas
Go back to the frame, invert your select and add that half to the canvas the way we did above.
Arrange them on your canvas how you want, you can use mine for a guide.
Once you have that all the way you want, add a drop shadow to both

Open paper05
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside your frames
Select → Modify → Expand, by 3
Invert and on the paper layer, press delete
Open paper11
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below your other paper we added
Apply your mask here.

Open your tube and get it the way you want it, merge the layers you're using together
Add to your canvas and resize and position the way you're wanting it.
Duplicate it
Have one above the frame and one below
The one below add a drop shadow and erase any of the legs that are beyond the frame
On the one above erase any of the legs beyond the frame or over the frame
Duplicate this layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add your tube to the other frames how you're wanting to and change the blend modes and opacity to your liking.

I did:
The one on the upper left – Luminosity, Opacity at 40%
The one on the upper right – Luminosity, opacity at 30%
The one on the bottom right – Soft light, opacity at 100%

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

as36 (no drop shadow)
as40 (no drop shadow)
as40 (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

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!
