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 Anna Marine
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Gothic Couture” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this for purchase HERE

Additional Filters Needed

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

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

Open frame 4
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 70%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp1
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas above the frame
Select your frame
Invert your selection and on the paper layer press delete
Change the blend mode to color

Open p94
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below the frames
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Make sure you get the small portion around the edges as well
Select → Modify → Expand, by 6
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete

Add the tube to the canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Erase any of the tube you can see outside the frame at the bottom
Duplicate this layer
Erase any of the tube over the frame
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom layer add a drop shadow
On the top layer
Filter → Blur → Gaussian blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to overlay and the opacity to 70%

Duplicate the paper background layer
Change the layer position to above the three tubes we added
Fliter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → TV Inline
Change the blend mode to soft light, lower the opacity to 50%
