Thinking of Christmas

This tut was written for those with a basic knowledge of psp.
I am using the awesome artwork of  Janna Prosvirina 
The tube is called Robin Red

Scrap Home for Christmas by Bits N Bobs  HERE

MPM Mask 125 HERE

Xero-Fritillary, Clarity, Porcelain
Font of Choice, I used The Heart of Everything

Drop Shadow usually V2 H2 50 black
 *Remember to add your drop shadow as you go along*
Open a new image 800 x 800 or one you prefer, resize paper 1 to 23%, paste, apply your mask, delete, merge group, adjust your mask to fit your tag later.

Resize element 25 to 23%, duplicate, being on the bottom frame, free rotate to the left at 10 degrees, move to the left a little bit, then erase the parts showing below the top frame, being on the top frame, merge down. 
Click inside on all open sections with your magic wand 
expand by 5, resize paper 2 to 23%, paste, invert, delete, select none.

Paste your tube on the paper layer, resize to 75%, duplicate, move above the frame, erase the parts covering the frame, candles and ornaments.
Apply the Xero filter-Porcelain on both tubes, then Clarity.

Duplicate the frame, mirror and take your free hand tool and draw around the outer greenery and the two ornaments, copy paste as a new layer, then delete the rest of that frame.
This will take a little patience, you might try erasing the parts you don't want to keep.

Back on the original frame, apply the Xero filter-Fritillary with these settings
5, 30, 35, 35

Resize element 22 to 15%, place at the upper left, duplicate, mirror, flip, adjust.
Resize element 6 to 15%, paste at the upper left, just above the mask layer, duplicate, mirror, duplicate, flip, duplicate, mirror, duplicate again if needed and adjust, then merge these layers together and apply the Xero filter-Porcelain.

Resize element 15 to 15%, place on the left below the candles, sharpen once, duplicate, resize to 65%, paste on the right just below the greenery.
Resize element 7 to 10%, paste on the candle at the bottom.

On element 16, take your free hand tool, draw around the rope hanger and delete, then resize to 10%, paste on the upper left  part of the frame, duplicate, move over and down on the right.

Add any wordart if you like, I wrote out Thinking of Christmas, then applied a glass bevel, using EyeCandy 4000, then selected the wordart, float, defloat, expand by 2, new layer fill with a color of choice, select none and move below the wordart.

Add any other elements you would like, make it your own.
Crop your tag to be sure no stray shadows are on the edges of your tag.
Once happy with it all, close off any backgrounds, merge visible.
Resize first, then add your copyrights and name.

 That's it
Hope you enjoyed doing my tut.
