This tutorial was written on January 24, 2012 by Shani aka Wicked Princess. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.
Supplies Needed:

++Paint Shop Pro ( I used 10 but any version should work)

++ Tube and close up of choice. I used the work of Tony Tzokanokis and You can purchase his work currently at PSP Tubes Emporium

++Scrap kit of choice, I used the cute kit Sorrowful You by Tasha of Tasha’s Playground

++Fonts of your choice. I used one called Porcelin
++Plug ins-Xero, Radiance (optional for close up)


Open a canvas of 800x800 and make sure it has a transparent background. Remember we can resize this later.

Open the circle frame you like, I personally used frame4. Copy and paste as a new layer into your blank canvas.
Using your magic wand tool, and click inside the circle frame. Go to selections, modify, expand and increase it to 10. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Go to selections, none.
Open your tube of choice, and choose the close up. Copy and paste as a new layer above the paper layer. Use your plug in xero, radiance on it. I just chose a random setting and then click ok.

Go to effects, texture effects, blinds and set it to the setting you like with the color set to black. Click ok.

Now use your magic wand took again, and go to the frame layer. Click inside the frame layer and go to selections, modify, expand and expand by 10. On the close up layer go to selections, invert then hit the delete key. Go to selections, none
Next open up up the leaves element. Copy and paste as a new layer. Move it to the right of the frame, duplicate it and go to image, mirror. Merge down one layer then go to duplicate, image flip. Duplicate one more time then go to image, free rotate and set it to 90. Merge down the three layers so the leaves are all on the same layer. Then move this layer to the bottom of the canvas.
Then open the red branch, copy and paste as a new layer to the left of the frame. Make sure this is on top. Duplicate it then go to image, mirror. Add two flowers at the ends of the branches like I did.

Add the winged heart to the bottom center and then the crow to look like it’s sitting on it.
Next copy and paste the full tube to the right of the frame. Move it so it’s just above the frame layer. Adjust as you like it. Note that I erased the very bottom so it was hidden behind the flowers.
Don’t forget your copyrights and tagger markings! Save and you’re done! Thank you for trying my tut.
