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 to 800 x 800, you can resize and/crop later. Close the original.

Open papers 1, 5, 7 and 24. Resize as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I've opened paper1, it tells me what percentage I'm viewing it at. For me it's usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you've done this, minimize for later use.

Go to raster layer, paste paper7 as a new layer, you may want to resize a little smaller to fit inside the rectangle. Go to the original layer,Select-All-Float-Defloat- Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to paper7 layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Do the same with the other long rectangle layer. Delete both original layers.

Go to raster2 layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat, add a new layer, flood fill with #44820a. Go to the original layer, Selections-Modify-Contract by4, go to flood filled layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Arrange above the white copy of Vector 1 circle layer. Delete original layer. Do the same with the Green copy of Vector 1 circle layer.

Go to the white copy of Vector 1 layer, paste paper5 as a new layer, you may want to resize a little smaller to fit inside the circle. Go to the original layer,Select-All-Float-Defloat- Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to paper5 layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Delete original layer.

Go to the black copy of Vector 1 layer, paste paper1 as a new layer, you may want to resize a little smaller to fit inside the circle. Go to the original layer,Select-All-Float-Defloat- Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to paper1 layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Delete original layer.

Go to the black square Copy of Vector 1 layer, paste paper24 as a new layer, you may want to resize a little smaller to fit inside the square. Go to the original layer,Select-All-Float-Defloat- Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to paper24 layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Delete original layer.

Go to Raster3 layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat-Modify and contract by 6, hit the delete key on keyboard. Select-None. Paste paper5 as a new layer, you may want to resize a little smaller to fit inside the square. Go back to Raster6 layer, Select-All-Float-Defloat-Invert, go to paper1 layer and hit the delete key on the keyboard. Delete original layer
