This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.
Tube of choice. I am using the art of Lia, a FTU artist. You can see her work here.
PTU kit from Irish Princess Designs called Spring Fling. You can find purchase info on this kit here.
Mask 4 from Mask Set 153 by me. You can find it here.
Template 338 from Toxic Desirez. You can find it here.
Font of choice. I am using End of the Dream.
Open your template. Set the canvas size to 900 x 780. Resize by 67%. Delete the following layers: Credits, Raster 3, Copy of Raster 3.
Move the Copy (2) of Raster 5 below the (white) Raster 5 layer.
Merge together the following layers:
Raster 9 & Copy of Raster 9
Raster 7 & Copy of Raster 7
Raster 8 & Copy of Raster 8
Raster 6 & Copy of Raster 6
Raster 2 & Copy of Raster 2
Copy of Raster 5 & Copy (2) of Raster 5
(pink) Raster 5 & Copy of Raster 5
Note: resize papers by 60% before adding to tag.
Open your mask & Paper 9. Paste your paper as a new layer above the Raster 1 layer. Apply your mask, then merge group.
Replace each layering with the following:
Raster 9 – Paper 14
Raster 7 – Paper 2
Raster 8 – Paper 12
Raster 6 – Paper 16
Raster 2 – Paper 19
Raster 10 – Paper 12
Raster 4 – Paper 1
Next, we’ll add our elements:
18 – resize by 25%, flip vertical. Paste as a new layer above the top circle layer. Place to the top left of the top circle. Rotate a little to the left. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the top right.
82 – resize by 40%. Place to the top of the circle layer.
35 – resize by 60%. Place to the bottom.
61 – resize by 30%, flip horizontal. Place over the highest grass on the right, then a little down.

Open your tube, resizing as necessary. Paste as a new layer above the butterfly & flowers layer. Place to your liking. Duplicate & move this layer above the topmost green paper layer. Place a copy over each paper circle. When satisfied with the placement, merge down. On the paper layer, select all, float, defloat. On the merged tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect.
Duplicate your merged tubes layer, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen, 85. On the original layer, set the blend mode to Luminance(L), 60.
Back to the original tube we added. Duplicate, gaussian blur using the same settings as before. Set the blend mode to Soft Light.
Add your name, copyright, & license # if using a PTU tube. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
