Let's Rock this Tutorial!!

Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original. Resize the Canvas size to 800x800, you may crop and/or resize later.

Open papers, 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8. Minamize for later use.

Go to background layer, open element 21, copy and paste as a new raster layer, resize and arrange to fit around the circle and brushes.. With your magic wand click inside the frame, go to Selections-Modify and expand by 10. Paste paper 8 into selection.

Go to the Transmission layer, which is included in the template. Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 3 into selection. Delete original layer.

Go to the Large circle layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper7 into selection. Delete original layer.

Open element 20, copy and paste as a new layer, resize and arrange to fit around the circle layer. Go to your Transmission layer and resize a little bigger so it is past the circle frame.

Go to the Spiral Circle 1 layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper2 into selection. Do not delete original layer. Do this with the Spiral Circle 2 layer and the Spiral Star layers using paper 4.

Go to the Brush layer1, Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper2 into selection. Do not delete original layer. Do this with the Brush2 layer.

Add any elements of choice.

Go to the circle background layer, add tube of choice arrange to liking, go to the circle, Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to the tube and hit the delete key on the keyboard.

Go to Effects-Photo Effects and add a black and white film of choice. Go to Effects-Xero-Porcelain using these settings: 50-128-128-0-0-255.

Add another tube of choice or the same one, add the Xero effects to this tube as you did above. Arrange to liking, Duplicate and bring this one to the top, carefully erase any tubing hanging over the bottom portion of the frame so that it looks like the tube is coming out of the frame.

Add wordart of choice or you may use the one I did. If using the one I did:

Open wordart and duplicate layer. Make the bottom layer invisiable. With your magic wand very carefully click only on the black outline for the words Life and Silly. Go to Selections-Invert and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Make your top layer invisable and bottom layer visable, click on it so it is activated, carefully erase the words Life, Silly and copyright info. Go to the top layer, make it visiable again and click inside the outline of the letters Life and Silly, add a new raster layers arrange below the words Life and Silly and paste paper12 into selection. Select none. Go to the outline of the words Life and Silly and a small black Gradient glow. Merge each layer down so they are on one layer. Copy and paste as a new layer on your tag and arrange to your liking.

Add anyother elements of choice.
