A tube of choice, I am using the art of Very many, to use this tube

My masks here & here



Put the two masks into your mask folder.

Open a blank canvas 700 x 600

Open Pape13, copy and paste as a new layer onto the canvas,go to layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk, select MD_14_09 from the drop down menu and apply with the following settings, source luminance checked, fit to layer canvas checked, hide all mask checked then go to layers, merge and merge group then go to image, resize and resize by 120%, smart size, resize all layers unchecked.

Repeat the above step using paper11, mask MD_14_16 but do not resize.

Open Ele 8, copy and paste as a new layer onto the canvas.

Open Ele 25, copy and paste as a new layer, go to resize and resize by 87% using the same settings,

Open frame 3, copy and paste as a new layer, go to resize and resize by 65%, same settings, activate the rectangle selection tool, feather set to 0, draw out a selection similar to the one in the screen shot below, open paper 3,copy and paste as a new layer then go to selections, invert then hit delete on your keyboard then back to selections, select none,drag this layer below the frame layer.



Make the frame layer active add the following drop shadow H-3, V3, opacity 55, blur 6, color black, use these settings throughout the tutorial.

Activate the magic wand, tolerance and feather both set to 0, click inside the center of the small frame, copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize and arrange to your liking, go to selections, invert, then hit delete on your keyboard, then back to selections, select none, change the blend mode of this layer to luminance.

Open Ele 31, copy and paste as a new layer,go to layers, resize and resize by 45%, arrange at the base of the frame to your liking.

copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize and arrange as far right to the frame as you can leaving enough room in the frame for your text, duplicate the tube layer and change the blend mode of the duplicate layer to screen or soft light which ever you like best, add a drop shadow to the original tube layer.

Open element 23, copy and paste as a new layer, go to image, resize and resize by 30% arrange at the bottom left of the frame, add a drop shadoew, then go to layers, duplicate, then image and mirror arrange at the side of the other flower.
