You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

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

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

Open frame01
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 70%
Rotate 20degrees
Select the frame
Select → Modify → Expand by 3
Flood fill with the maroon sort of color from the frame
Filter → Noise → Add Noise
Amount 12.5%, Gaussian, Monochromatic
Add a drop shadow

Open paper08
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 4
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Open paper06

Add to your canvas just above the white background layer

I resized mine a bit afterwards and adjusted the position

Add the tube to the canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Add a drop shadow
Filter → Xero → Radiance
Do something subtle that you like that will compliment your tube

Add the tube to the canvas once more
Just above the pink frame background layer

Resize and position to your liking
Erase any that is outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%

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

glittersplatter01 (no drop shadow)
glittersplatter02 (no drop shadow)

Add your name

Image → Trim
Top left pixel color all boxes checked

Resize if you'd like to
