Additional Plugins Needed

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

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

Open as14
Add to your canvas
Resize down to 60%
Rotate -20 degrees
Add a drop shadow

Open paper13
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5px
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate the layer
Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
change the blend mode to soft light

Open paper02
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
Duplicate this layer
On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
On the bottom tube
Add a drop shadow

Add your tube again under the frame a few times
Resize and reposition to your liking
I flipped a few horizontally
Erase any of the tubes that're outside the frame
merge them together
move in between the two frame paper background layers
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the Opacity to 70%

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

as24 (no drop shadow)
as24 (no drop shadow)
as29 (no drop shadow)

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****

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