This Tutorial was written on August 2nd  2013 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 Ismael Rac
You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE
I did recolor this tube to match the kit a bit more but, the other colors would work well as well

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using “Back 2 School Purple” by Designs by Sarah
You can find this kit HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask141 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this for download HERE

Add to your canvas
Resize down by 80%
Add a new layer below the frame

Erase any of the tube that's outside the circle frame at the bottom
Move this layer above the circle frame
Erase any of the tube that's over the frame
Filter → Blur → Gaussian blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light
lower the opacity to 50%
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add your tube in between the two paper layers a couple of times
Resize and position as you'd like
Erase any that's outside the frame
