Addiontal Filters Needed
Xero – Porcelain
Xero – Radiance
VanDerLee – Unplugged X – Pattern Offset

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

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

Open Frame-02
Add to your canvas
Scale down by 80%

Open pp-04
Add to your canvas
Have below your frame
Use your magic wand to select inside to frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer

Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open pp-03
Add to your canvas
Have this layer just above the white background layer
Apply the mask to this layer

Go to the full body tube and merge together the layers you're wanting showing
Add to your canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Once you have this

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

Filter → Xero → Radience
Something subtle that just brightens the tube a bit

Filter → Sharpen → Unsharp mask
All at default

Add a drop shadow to the tube

Go to your close up of the same tube and merge your layers together like you did before
Add it to you canvas, in between the two purple paper layers
Flip horizontally, resize and position as you'd like
Erase any of the tube that's on the outside of the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity, the opacity to 30%

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

wire (no drop shadow)
doodle2 (added an outer glow here)
doodle2 (added an outer glow here)
halo (erased a bit of this to make it look like it loops around the frame)
