This Tutorial was written on October 12th, 2014 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

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using the scrapkit “Boolloween” by Chichi Designz
You can find this HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask254 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this for download HERE

Texture of Choice
I am using a scanlines pattern

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

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

Open Frame1
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 60%
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper10
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 65%
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 8
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this layer

Add your texture into this selection as well
I change my blend mode to soft light and lowered the opacity to 50%

Open Paper7
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
On the botttom one
Add a drop shadow
On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light.
Lower the opacity to 70%

In between the paper frame background layers
add your tube again, how you're wanting to
Erase any that is outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity and lower the opacity to 30%

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

Brush (no drop shadow)
Words (no drop shadow, blend mode to overlay)
Bats (Just 1 of them, added an outer glow as well)
Bats (Just one, same outer glow as to other)

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****
Add your copy right information

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