Canadian Babe Eh! (No Scrap)

 This tut was written for those with a basic knowledge of psp.
I am using the awesome artwork of  Elias Chatzoudis.
The tube is called Canadian Beauty
You need a license to use this art work. Please do not use without a license.
 You can find this art at his Store  HERE or at CDO HERE
Supplies Needed
I used PSPX...but any of them should work.
Dangerously Delicious Canada Day Template 2  HERE

VM Extravaganza Filter-Transmission
AAA Frame-Foto Frame

Font of Choice, I used Palatino Linotype

Drop Shadow usually V2 H2 50 black
Drop shadow on this one I used V-2 H-2 Blur 15
Use whatever drop shadow you prefer
 *Remember to add your drop shadow as you go along*

Open a new image 600 x 250, fill with white, apply the VM Extravaganza filter-Transmission with these settings
24, 0, 15
Click on the gray lines with your magic wand, fill with #b80407, add noise at 50%.
On your template, close off the layers except for the Green Center Square, Center White Outline, Layer 6, Layer 3, Red leaf, leaf outline d/s, leaf outline, Top leaf circle, copy merged, paste on the left side of your signature tag, resize to 50%.
Click on the green square with your magic wand, paste your close up tube, invert, delete select none. Duplicate your tube, Gaussian blur at 4, change the blend mode to hard light or one you prefer. Click on the red leaves with your magic wand and add noise at 50%.
Close off your background and merge visible, duplicate, mirror, adjust.

Paste your tube in the center.

Back to the template, close off all the layers but the wordart layers, copy merged, paste on your tag, resize to 50%, add a medium white gradient and place at the bottom or where you like.
Before merging and adding your frame, you will close off your tube layer and wordart layer, copy merged to your Avator tag, then reopen the wordart and copy and paste that to the Avator tag also.
Now merge visible and add your frame.

For the frame I used AAA Frame-Foto Frame
 Width 3, Matte 2, Opacity 100, all other numbers on 0.
Add your copyright and name.

Open a size that is allowed for your group or forum, I did 200 x 200.
 Copy your signature tag, paste, resize to 85%, place how you like, then paste the wordart, resize to 55%, place at the bottom.
 Once happy, merge visible and add the same frame as before.
 Add your copyright and name.
That's it
Hope you enjoyed doing my tut.
