This Tutorial was written on August 31st 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 Wendy Gerber
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Punk'd Out” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this for purchase HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using “Mask2” but, I cannont remember where I got it from
I'm going to add it here but, if anyone knows who made it I'd be happy to take it down
And replace with a link back :)

VanDerLee - Unplugged-X - Pattern Offset

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

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

Open Frame 3
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 80%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp10
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just below the frame
Use the magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Exand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer
On the duplicate
Filer → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open pp5
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add the tube to the canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Erase any that's outside the frame at the bottom
Duplicate this layer
Move above the frame
Erase any that's over the frame that you don't want it to be
Duplicate this layer
On the top one
Filer → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light, lower the opacity to 36%
On the very bottom tube
Add a drop shadow

Add your tube to your canvas
this time in between the two pink paper layers we have
Resize and reposition to your liking
I flipped some horizontally
Change the blend modes and opacities as you'd like
For mine, from left frame over to right, I used the following:
Overlay, opacity at 100%
Luminosity, opacity at 50%
Normal, opacity at 50%
Luminosity, opacity at 50%

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

swirl 1
star 3
flower 2
