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. Resize canvas 700x700 pixles, you may crop and resize later. Close the original.

Open papers 2, 3, 10, 12, 19 and 20, minamize for later use.

Go Copy of Raster 2 layer, Select-All, add new raster layer, paste paper20 into selection. Duplicate 3x's so you have 3 layers. Go the Raster 1 layer, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to one of your paper20 layers and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Do this with Raster2 and Copy of Raster 2 and the 2 of the remaining paper20 layers. Delete original layers. Make the 3rd layer invisible so we may use it later.

Open element ribbon1, resize to 670x23 pixels. Paste as a new layer and arrange to fit in the middle of the bottom rectangle. Go Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Duplicate layer and arrrange to fit inside the top rectangle.

Go back to Raster4 layer Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the paper2 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Add tube of choice as a new layer, arrange to fit to your liking inside the oval frame. If there is any hanging over the frame, Go back to Raster4 layer Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, then go back to the tube and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Delete the original raster4 layer when done. Go to the tube layer, in your layer properties set to Luminance (Legacy) and visiablity to 40%.

Go the Raster 3 layer, Select-All, add new raster layer, paste paper19 into selection. Duplicate 2x's and x out the copy so you cannot see them, we will use them later. Go back to Raster3 layer Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the paper19 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Go back to one of the duplicated paper19 layers and make it visiable, arrange on top of the Top Frame layer. Go to the Top Frame layer, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the copy of paper19 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Do this with the Bottom Frame layer also.

Go to the 3rd paper20 layer you had from earlier, make it visible now and arrange above the Middle frame layer. Go to the Middle Frame layer, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the copy of paper20 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Go the Top Frame Background, Select-All, add new raster layer, paste paper12 into selection. Duplicate 1x's and x out the copy so you cannot see it, Go back to the Top Frame Background, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the paper12 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Make the copy of paper12 visible and arrange above the Bottom Frame Background layer, Do the same as above with the copy of paper12 and the Bottom Frame Background, delete original layers.

Go the Middle Frame Background, Select-All, add new raster layer, paste paper10 into selection. Go back to the Middle Frame Background, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go back to the paper10 layer and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

If there is any hanging over the frame, Go to background layer Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, then go back to the tube and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Add another tube of choice, do the same as above only arrange to the left of the frame. For the tube on the left, in your layer properties set to Luminance (Legacy) and visiablity to 50%. Do this also with the top frame background, only do the layer properties to the tube on the right.

Go to the middle frame background and add tube of choice as a new layer, resize and arrange to the right of the frame, to your liking. If there is any hanging over the frame, Go to background layer Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, then go back to the tube and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Go to the background layer, Select all add a new raster layer and paste paper3 into selections. Open your mask of choice, go to Layers- New mask layer-From Image, making sure that the mask image is in the source window, Source Luminance is clicked and depending on your mask if Invert mask data is checked or not. I notice with some of the masks I use, it doesn't need to be checked and some of them it does. Click ok. Go to your layer propeties and merge group.

Add Name with a Gradient Glow of choice, Copyright info, license and save!
