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.

Open papers of choice mimize for later use.

Open element sparkles resize 373x289 pixels, copy and paste as new layer, go to layers-arrange-send layer to the bottom. Duplicate layer, go to image-mirror, duplicate layer, go to image-flip, duplicate layer go to image-mirror. Go to the first on of these layers and each one down so they are on one layer. Delete backgoundlayer.

Go to rectangle 1, open element flower spray, resize to 417x129 pixels, copy and paste at the bottom over rectangle 1, duplicate layer go to image-mirror, again go to the top layer and merge down so they are on one layer. Delete original rectangle layer.

Go to rectangle2 layer Select-All-float-defloat, add new raster layer, paste paper of choice into selection, delete original layer. Do this with rectangle3, lg Circle, lg CircleFrame, FrameBackground, Frame, brackets, each small cirle and each small circle frame, using papers of your choosing.

Go to (wordart) layer, Select-All-float-defloat, add new raster layer, flood fill color of choice into selection, delete original layer. Go to wordart backing, select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and floodfill with black, delete original layer.

Go to lgCircle layer, paste tube of choice, resize and arrange to liking, Select-All-float-Defloat-Invert, hit your delete key on your keyboard.

Go to effects-xero-Porcelain, using these settings.

Go to your layer pallette and set the visiablity to 50.

Go to the frame layer, paste same tube of choice over the frame, arrange to liking, go to effects-xero-Porcelain using the same settings as above.

Open another tube of choice from the same artist, (prefferably male tube), arrange to your liking, inside the lgCircle above the first tube. Go to your layer pallette and set visiablity to 60.

Go to the frame Backgound, paste the male tube as a new layer and arrange to liking, duplicating several times and arranging to liking. I did this 4 times, the first two, (top left and bottom right) I set the layer properties to luminance(legacy) with layer visiablity set to 70. The second two, (top right, and middle right) I kept the layer properties normal with visiablity set to 75.

Go to small circle1 and paste a tube into the frame arranging to liking, go back to the small circle, Select-all-float-defloat-invert go to the tube and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Do this with each cirlce, alternating tubes if you used two different ones. On circle1 and circle4 tubes, go to effects-photoeffects-black and white film with the filter color set to red and the strength set to 40. Go to effects-xero-Porcelain using the above settings. On circle2 and circle3 tubes, go to effects-photoeffects-sepia toning with age amount set to 60. On each layer go to the layer properties and set the visiablity to 65.

Open heartscatter element, resize 264x391 pixels, paste as new layer and arrange to the left of the tag, Open ribbons, resize ribbon1 67x182 pixels and ribbon2 31x177 pixels, paste as new layers and arrange on the left bracket. Open bow element of choice, resize 70x86 pixels and arrange on top of the ribbons.

Open flowerspray, with your selection tool set to rectangle, select a small flower, copy and paste as new layer, resize, 39x39 pixels and arrange above bow. Paste flower again as new layer and arrange in the middle of the right bracket.

Add anyother elements of your choosing.
