I used PSPX...but any of them should work.
DD Template America the Beautiful  HERE
DD Patriotic Mask #3  HERE
xero filter-Soft Mood and Mistifier
Photo Effex-Scanlines

Drop Shadow usually V2 H2 50 black

Let's get started
*Remember to add your drop shadow as you go along*
Open the tag template, hold the shift key and d to duplicate and close the original.
"Delete the credits".
Delete each layer of the template as you go along also.
On some of your layers you will want to add your drop shadow, first with H 2, V 2, then change them both to the minus and apply again.

Go to Image, canvas size and make it 800 x 800 or one you prefer.

Select the teal circle, new raster layer, fill with white, add noise at 100% or what you prefer.

Select the grey circle, new raster layer, fill with #a20601.
Taupe strip, new raster layer fill with #204896.
Grey strip, new raster layer, fill with white, apply Photo Effex-Scanlines, width one, spacing 2 and noise at 50.

Taupe rectangle, new layer, fill with #a20601, then go to Effects, texture effects, weave and with these settings, 1, 5, 1 gap checked and color white.
Light blue frame, new layer, fill with #204896.
Red ribbon, new layer fill with #a20601, add noise at 25%.
Blue ribbon, new layer, fill with #204896, add noise at 25%.
White stars, add noise at 50%.

Being on the left teal rectangle, merge down to the right teal, then the middle teal rectangle, select all, float,  defloat, fill with white, do not deselect yet.
Paste your close up tube, adjust how you like it, invert, delete, change the blend mode to Luminance (L).
Apply xero filter-Soft Mood, then Mistifier.

Resize your tube and place below the wordart layers on the left, if using the same tube I am.

Select the American Backing fill with #204896.
America Red Stripes fill with #a20601.
America white, add noise at 50% and sharpen once.
Beautiful blue, new layer, fill with #204896.
On the word The, you can leave as is or change the color to one you like.

Being on the bottom layer, new raster layer, fill with a gradient color.
I had my foreground #a20601 and background #204896, then gradient at angle 45, repeat 4, fill and apply your mask, delete and merge group.
Close off any background you used, merge visible.

Resize first and then add your name and Copyrights and you are all done.
Hope you enjoyed doing this tut.
