PTU Alchemy

This tutorial was written by me on August 30, 2014.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSP X2 but any version would work.

Artist: Enamorte
I bought this tube at Creative Design Outlet HERE
Do not use this tube unless you have a license.
Scrap Kit: Alchemy by Devilish Dezigns
You can get this kit at Digital Chaos  HERE
Mask: WSL 84  HERE

Let’s start with the mask layer: 
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 5.  Open mask (WSL 84) and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 5 into selection.
Go to LAYERS – NEW MASK LAYER – FROM IMAGE – SOURCE LUMINANCE - CHECKED – from menu, find WSL 84 – OK.  Duplicate and merge down.  Re-size 115%.
This will be the frame layer:   
Frame 2 - C/P and leave where it lands.  
Frame 1C/P and re-size 65%.  Leave it where it is too.  Make sure this frame layer is still highlightedGrab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of frame.  SELECTIONS - MODIFY - EXPAND 8 pixels.
NEW RASTER LAYER - C/Paste into selection Paper 6.  Keep selected.
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, grab it now.  I used the CU here.  Mirror and move her into position.  Duplicate and mirror again, then move into position. 
Duplicate the tube layer.  
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and leave the original tube layer on SCREEN.

(see tag for placement)

Now onto some elements: 
Element 47  - C/P and re-size 75%.  Make sure this and all other layer(s) are OVER the frame layer.  Move to bottom right side of tag and frame.  Duplicate and mirror.
(see tag for placement)
Element 43 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom left corner of tag.
(see tag for placement)
Element 34 - C/P and move to top middle of tag.
