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 paper 01,02,and 04, resizing as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I've opened (say paper2) it tells me what percentage I'm viewing it at. For me it's usually 75%, so I resize to 75% bringing it to 100%. Once you've done this, minimize for later use.

Go to Blue Oval, Select-All-Float-Defloat. Open paper01, copy and paste into selection. You may need to make this bigger in a minute, I noticed it was a little off than the white after making that one a 'frame'. Go back to the blue oval, paste your tube and resize/arrange to liking. Go to Effects-Plugins-Xero-Porcelian using these settings: 50-128-128-0-0-255. Go to Selections-Invert-hit delete key on keyboard. Set this layer to Overlay.

Go to Dark blue Line. Select-All-Float-Defloat. Open paper02, copy and paste into selection. Set the visibilty to around 40.

Go to White Oval, Select-All-Float-Defloat. Open paper2, copy and paste into selection. Selections-Modify-Contract by 20. Hit delete button on keyboard. Select None. Arrange this layer above the blue line.

Add tube of choice. Resize and arrange to liking.

Go to goodgirl layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat. Add new raster layer. Open paper04, copy and paste into selection, Selections-Modify-expand by 3 Add new raster layer and paste paper02 into selection. Selections-Modify-contract by 3. hit delete button on keyboard and arrange this layer above the darker one.

add another portion of the tube here if you like and arrange to the left of the oval. Duplicate and on the orginal go to, Paste tube of choosing add drop shadow, duplicate layer, on the original layer go to Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur set to 20.00. Go to the blue oval, Select-All-Float-Defloat and Hit delete button on keyboard. Go back to the copied layer of the tube, set the visiblity to around 75.

Go to wordart Define, With your magic wand set to Mode: Add(shift) and Matching Mode set to Color; carefully lick on all the light blue. Add new raster layer and paste paper02 onto the selection. Select none. With your magic wand click inside the light blue outline add new raster layer and flood fill with a dark blue. Select None. Go to Adjust-Add noise with the settings set at: Uniform, Monochrome checked and Noise set to 70.

Add snowflakes and any other elements, arrange to liking.
