Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Carpenter ICG for the name.

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas 700x700.

Open up frame 5 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little if you find it too big. Take your magic wand and click inside the squares then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 open up paper 7 add a new layer then copy and paste it INTO the selection. Move this layer below the frame. Then add a drop shadow of H 0 V 0 Opacity 50 Blur 5.00 Color Black to the frame.

Open up the grass mound element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer above the frame layer arrange it near the bottom of the frame re-size it so it fits nicely. Open up cattail 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below the grass mound re-size it so it fits nicely then duplicate and mirror it. Add the same drop shadow you did earlier to BOTH cattail elements.

Open up the log element copy and paste it as a new layer near the bottom of the frame above all the other layers. Re-size it so it fits there nicely and arrange it to your liking. Add the same drop shadow.

Open up the lights element copy and paste it as a new layer move it below the frame but above the paper. Re-size it so it fits in there nicely. Do the same with the mist element but arrange it so its above the frame and paper layers.

Open butterfly 2 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it quite a bit then rotate it to your liking. I moved mine near the top left of the tag then changed the blend mode to Luminance L.

Open up the snail element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it so its sitting on the log re-size it so it fits there nicely. Then add the same drop shadow as you did earlier.

Copy and paste the deer element as a new layer re-size it so its not too big then arrange it to the bottom left of the tag. Add the same drop shadow. Repeat the same steps with the wolf 2 element.

Open up the bucket element copy and paste it as a new layer re-sizing it so it fits nicely arrange it to the bottom right of the tag behind the wolf. Add the same drop shadow.

Add the water element from the kit re-sizing it so it fits nicely arrange it so its under the grass mound element then duplicate it.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange and re-size to your liking. Duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3. Apply the same drop shadow to the BOTTOM tube layer.

Open up paper 4 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below everything apply your mask then merge group. Arrange it to your liking.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise settings of your liking. Then apply a gradient glow, my settings shown in the screen-shot below. Apply the same drop shadow. Change the blend mode to hard light then duplicate.




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