Open the template. Delete Raster 1. Set the canvas size to 850 x 850.

Merge together the following layers: Raster2 & Copy of Raster 2; Raster 9 & Copy of Raster 9; Raster 10 & Copy of Raster 10.

Resize all layers by 71%.

Open your mask & Paper 11. Resize your paper by 60%. Paste as a new layer above the background layer of your template. Apply your mask, merge group. Using your pick tool, stretch the mask layer to the edges of the canvas.

Replace each template layer with the following. Before adding papers, resize the paper by 60%:

Raster 4 – Paper (29)
Raster 3 – Paper (10)
Raster 11 – Paper (27)

Open your tube. Paste as a new layer above the necklace layer, resizing as necessary. Place to your liking. Duplicate, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to screen, 80.

Open your tube again. Paste as a new layer just below the frame layer. Resize so it is slightly larger than your previous tube. Duplicate your tube. Arrange each tube over the frame back layer. When satisfied, merge the two tube layers together. On the frame back layer, select all, float, defloat. On the merged tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Duplicate your merged tubes layer. Gaussian blur using the same settings as before. Set the blend mode to screen, 80. On the original merged layer, set the blend mode to luminance(L), 22.
