This tutorial was written by Brunette on August 23rd 2012.
 Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
Do not copy and paste my tutorials or claim as your own you may link to them for group challenges.

What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using an awesome tube by Simon Han. I purchased my tube at PSP Tubes Emporium however it has since closed so I am not sure where he is selling currently if anywhere.

A gorgeous kit by Gemini Creationz called Out of the Blue which you can purchase at Scraps and the City 
HERE.
Be sure to check out all her other fab kits as well as other designers while you're there!

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and KG Strawberry Limeade for the name.

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.
I like my tags BIG LOL.

Open up element 2 from the kit which should be a frame copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 4 now open up a paper of choice I used paper 6 copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking then go back up to selections-invert and hit delete move this layer below the frame. DO NOT deselect yet. Open up your tube mine came with a close up so I used that, mirror it then copy and paste it as a new layer above the paper layer and arrange it to your liking then hit delete. Gray scale your tube in the frame and change the blend mode to screen duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light.

Open element 40 from the kit which should be bubbles copy and paste them as a new layer under the frame over the top re-size and arrange them to your liking.

Now we can decorate a bit!

Open up element 9 from the kit which is a gorgeous tree copy and paste it as a new layer move it to the left of your frame. I added element 33 which is a butterfly on the tree re-sizing it to fit nicely.

Open up element 10 which is heart balloons copy and paste them as a new layer arrange them to the right of your frame.

Open element 16 which is a puddle of water copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little and place it to the bottom right of your frame. Now open element 30 which is a swan copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little and mirror it. Arrange it so its in the puddle.

Open up element 64 which is a bunch of pillows copy and paste them as a new layer re-size a little and place them at the bottom left of your frame.

Open element 45 which is a bag of shells I believe copy and paste it as a new layer re-size and place at the bottom left of your frame behind the pillows you just put there.

Open up element 58 which is a bottle copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it to it fits nicely move it to the bottom left of your frame in front of your bag of shells but still behind the pillows.

Now we can copy and paste our tube as a new layer I arranged mine so it looked like she was sitting on the pillows. Duplicate your tube change the blend mode to soft light and then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5 and give your bottom tube layer a drop shadow of V 2 H 2 Opacity 60  Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Add the same drop shadow as above to the frame, pillows, bag of shells, swan and butterfly in the tree.

Now add your name in your font and color of choice I used white then added some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise-uniform checked as well as monochrome and at 36% then apply the same drop shadow as above.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
