PTU The Thorn

This tutorial was written by me on February 16, 2015.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSP X6 but any version would work.

Artist: Anna Marine
I bought this tube at Creative Design Outlet  HERE
Do not use this tube unless you have a license.
Scrap Kit: ScrapFoxy_IB-AnnaMarine-34-1 by Foxy's Designz
You can find this kit at Creative Design Outlet  HERE
Mask: WSL 3  HERE

Let’s start with the mask layer: 
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 3.  Open mask (WSL 3) and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 3 into selection.
Duplicate and merge down.
(see tag for placement) 
This will be the frame layer:   
Frame 3C/P and leave it where it is.   Make sure Frame 3 layer is still highlightedGrab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of frame.  SELECTIONS - MODIFY - EXPAND 10 pixels.  NEW RASTER LAYER - C/Paste into selection Paper 4Keep selected.
 Frame 2 - C/P and move over Frame 1 so that it looks like it belongs. 
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, grab the Close Up now.  C/P and move her 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 9 - C/P and move to upper left corner of tag.  Make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layer(s).  Duplicate and mirror then flip.
(see tag for placement)
Element 17 - C/P and move to bottom middle of frame.  Make sure this layer, and all other layer(s), are OVER the frame layer(s).
(see tag for placement)
Element 12 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom right corner of frame.  Duplicate, mirror then flip.
(see tag for placement)
Element 18 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to upper right corner of tag.
(see tag for placement)
Element 1 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to top right corner of frame. Free rotate 20º right.
(see tag for placement)
Element 7 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom left corner of frame.  Move up just a little.  Duplicate twice and move copies around the left corner of frame.
(see tag for placement)
 Element 21 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom left corner of frame over element 7 and copies of element 7. 
(see tag for placement) 
Element 20 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom left corner of frame, on the left side of element 21.  Duplicate and move to right side of element 21.

Element 10 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Mirror and move to bottom left corner of frame in front of all other elements.

Element 16 - C/P and re-size 40%.  Move to bottom right corner of tag over element 18.

Word Art - C/P and move to top middle of tag.  Use a drop shadow so that it shows up on tag better.  I used the drop shadow described below except that I used the color white instead of black.  I also did a second drop shadow and changed the V & H to -3.
(see tag for placement)
I placed the tube layer(s) here: 
If your gonna use the same tube as I did, C/P the full version of the tube.  Move her to the bottom middle of tag.
(see tag for placement)
Add drop shadow to layers of your choosing.
I've used
V & H 3
Opacity 70
Blur 7
Color Black
